Re: Uruguayan players
Felder and Villarrubi had great careers as juniors (Felder reached 4th place in the ITF rankings in 2002, Villarubi reached the 7th), but have failed to deliver as professionals so far. They're already 21 and ranked below the 500th place, so there's not much that we can expect from them in the future.
Cuevas, on the other hand, wasn't really good as a junior, but is having a good performance at professional level, comparing to his peers, and also taking into consideration that he's the youngest of the pack (turns 20 in January). He's currently the only Uruguayan player ranked in the top 400, and has won some Futures titles this year, as well as posting a stunning victory over Brazilian Flavio Saretta (former top 50) in Davis Cup, this being his greatest career highlight so far. So we may conclude that he's got a good potential to continue climbing up the rankings in the future, although I don't see him equalling the likes of Marcelo Filippini, Diego Perez and Jose Luis Damiani in Uruguayan tennis history.
