The 17-year old will play his first ever pro match tomorrow in Bergamo challenger, where he was drawn against Chun-Hsin Tseng from Taipei, another prodigy and multiple junior GS winner. What do you think will happen ? Is it the first match of a future goat or just a good story for tennis newspapers ?

Is this the first of many undeserved wildcards?
I think the name will just sell some tickets, I guess noone exactly knows what is the level of Leo. Tbh I am expecting a 0-6 1-6 beatdown, but we'll see.....

I checked out his junior results on the ITF website - they're decent, he should win a few games at least. It will be interesting to see how he does in the long run as juniors is not always an accurate indication.

Btw, he acts as his father at the ages of 9-13 in the Borg vs. McEnroe movie. Very good movie and well worth watching for any tennis fan, although the movie focuses more on Borg than McEnroe.

Looks fugly. I know, it's in the eye of the beholder and so on but... a bad pic perhaps.

Has anyone seen him playing?

Lost 3-6 1-6 to Tseng, who, fun fact, is coached by Dominik Hrbaty.

Aw, don't be like that. He shouldn't be given advantages because of who his father is; but he also shouldn't be disadvantaged because of who his father is (out of some misplaced attempt to ensure "fairness").

Is he really so undeserving compared to any other junior getting a WC?
