No doubt, and not saying that as a fan, that he is going to be a great player. But this run is too random
Fifth semifinal of the year for Quinzi, he stands a good chance to close the year in Top 500
Honestly, it was sort of a fluke. Not in the sense that he couldn't repeat the result, but in the sense that it might have been different if some of his opponents were older and more experienced. He defeated a 19yr old American who was at best a very very average national junior within his country in the first round. In the second round against the 4 seed he won in a retirement but it was in the third set. Who knows if the injury affected his opponent the entire time or if it just occurred at the end? The third round was an excellent and surprising win against a quality player that shows a lot of promise and mental toughness. But the semifinal was again against a teen, this time only 17 (although Luke Bambridge has shown too be very talented as well for his age).
That being said, this was still a great performance by a kid with exceptional potential.
