Pretty much and it is kinda hard for me to follow him closely for that reason since I spend most of my time following the USTA pro circuit events. He is a true claycourter, grew up on clay like most Argentinians. His progress is kinda slow, but steady. Interestingly, I have yet to see him play on clay.

Default Collarini to play for Argentina again

Quote:
Andrea Collarini will play for Argentina again, the Argentine Tennis Association reports. Collarini, who was born in New York to Argentine parents, sent a letter to the ATA saying that he feels more comfortable playing for Argentina because that’s where he family and friends are. “I was born in the United States, but I lived and developed my tennis in Argentina,” the 20-year-old wrote. “I appreciate my experience in North America, but my place is here.”

Arturo Grimaldi, president of the ATA, said they are glad to have Collarini back and will support him anyway they can. Three years ago, Collarini accepted an offer from the USTA to play for the United States, which offered him more funding than he was getting in the South American nation. The 2010 Roland Garros junior finalist is currently ranked No. 346.

Kinda expect it tbh. I think this is a good decision IMO. Andrea rarely comes to the states and he is really a true Argentine at heart (grew up there, his friends and family are there). Even though the USTA helped him financially, they couldn't do much to get him wildcards into SA tournaments.

I have always felt sorry for him ever since the Argentine Tennis Federation forbidden his colleagues to come into contact with him after the nationality switch. I wish him the best in his career and life. I will still root for him. Good luck Andrea.

Hope he put the USTA's money to good use, cause maybe they feel it was all a waste now.

I would say he took advantage of the USTA's money. And yes this thread should be moved. But I have noticed threads and even Forums don't seem to get moved very timely!
