^ Unfortunately he didn't get the title, but a really impressive week.

He drew Slumpdasco in Acapulco R1, please get the upset Pippo.

Pippo is in the final of Rabat Challenger where he plays Martin Klizan.

He hasn't been in the top 50 since 2008, and a win would put him very close again. R/U points from Barletta to defend in a couple of weeks though.

Filippo would be ranked #52 with a win in the finals of Rabat. This week he's gotten into the final not playing great tennis, but his B/C level is good enough at this level to beat most players. Given the fact he's lost first round in every single tournament outside of Sao Paulo, a good run here definitely is a positive for Filippo and his season, and should give him confidence for the ATP Euro clay season coming up soon. He's got a lot of points to defend in April so a run here was necessary. Hopefully he can win the title in Morocco over Klizan.

Filippo played a bad match in the final and lost 2-6 3-6 to Klizan. Been quite a weird season thus far, as he's really only been in form for one event, but that event shows us what he is capable of when he's playing well.

His next tournament will be Miami next week.

Filippo withdrew from Miami, presumably due to his right ankle which he took a medical timeout for in his SF match. Personally, I think the injury is a slight reason why he withdrew, but really, he just hates playing off clay

So his next event should be the Barletta challenger in a couple weeks, where he defends finalist points. Hopefully he goes deep there and fully recovers from whatever ailments he is suffering from with a couple of weeks off from playing.

Filippo plays Bautista-Agut in the first round of Barletta. He should be very motivated here to have a great run and hopefully he can defend most if not all of his points, and of course, winning the title outright would be even sweeter.

Pippo won 7-5 6-4 over Bautista. It was a tough match, Pippo made quite a few errors, but hit his trademark beautiful clean winners and hit the ball and moved very well overall.

His next match will be against Milijan Zekic on Thursday. Very winnable and he needs to take advantage!

Filippo won 6-4 6-3 over Zekic. He got down *0-3 0-30 but from there got back and took control of the match. He made a fair bit of errors but generally played well.

He plays Brands in the QF, the second match on the center court Friday. Another winnable match so hopefully he gets through it comfortably!
