Re: Guido Pella
This thread hasn't been posted in for a while, so now is the perfect time on for an update on Guido and the progression he has been making in his career. The last several months have been great for Guido. In November 2011, he made his first career challenger final, coming from qualifying and beating good players such as Dabul, Cervenak and Ramirez-Hidalgo in the MD before losing in the final to Viola.
This season, Guido successfully won his first challenger title in Salinas, coming from 1-6 3-5 down to win 1-6 7-5 6-3 in the final vs Lorenzi! He also made the QF of Santiago, coming from behind in each of his two wins before losing to Capdeville. All in all, Guido has a 10-4 record this season and has moved his ranking from #479 to his current provisional ranking of #206. He is showing a lot of potential for the future and developing quickly into a very high-level player.
He is playing in Baranquilla, Colombia this week and won his first round over Estrella 6-3 6-3. His second round match will be vs Vagnozzi on Thursday. GL to Guido in Colombia. If he makes the SF he will be in the top 200 for the first time so this is a huge opportunity for another breakthrough for him!
