Wow, he gained 41 positions in the ranking!! :eek:

He is now #130. Perhaps the 5th teenager in the Top100, by the end of the year? :wavey:

I'm very happy for Elias. First Swedish player to win a Challenger since Robin Söderling back in 2009.

Elias is getting better and I really like his fighting spirit. If he keeps up the good work he should be top 100 in the near future.

He's #88 on the race now, so it's definitely plausible. And he hasn't been vulturing, he's been playing GS qualies, masters qualies, 250s/500s, basically everything he can get into. I believe 8 top100 wins this season.

That's a great win for him. Congrats. I didn't have him on my radar until recently at all. But he has proven to be quite some prospect in 2015, great year for him so far. Winning a title at this age is not so much about the specific opponents (although there's obviously a difference between #50 and #250), it's more about the player's ability to play consistent tennis for an entire week, and not just to "peak" for 90 minutes (for example your first Top 50 win - which is also great). So this is definitely an important step.

Great win for Elias. Will give him some confidence going forward. :) Top 100 before 2015 is over :rocker2:

I am impressed with the turnout for the final, absolutely packed!
Italian challengers are great especially in the summer with the night matches in front of big crowds. Those are the matches I remember :worship:
