Henri Laaksonen
Since the start of this year Henri has been representing Switzerland. His mum is Finnish and he has lived in Finland most of his life, but nowadays he is mostly living and training in Switzerland. His dad is a former Swiss pro player Sandro Della Piana. Henri won the Boys 16 & under European Championship in 2008 and played in RG boys singles semis in 2009. He played for Finland in Davis Cup against Monaco in July 2009 and kept the tie alive by beating Clement Morel in 5 sets. Henri is coming back after a long injury break in 2010. He is playing a futures tournament in Israel this week and he's been doing really well :)

Keep your eyes on him people :cool:

There's an article in Finnish to confirm it:

ATP Estoril

R1: Laaksonen d. Estruch 36 62 62

Re: Henri Laaksonen
In Estoril, he won 2 matches and lost the final Q round.

Now, in Rome Challenger, he qualified and then lost to Gilles Muller (Seeded 1) in 3 sets.
That's a great result.

Muller is a top 80 player, on clay probably not one of the 120 best player but still a great result for Laaksonen.
