Thomaz Bellucci
Wiki

Thomaz Cocchiarali Bellucci (born December 30, 1987 in TietĂȘ), a professional tennis player, is the top ranked Brazilian tennis player. He currently holds a career high ranking of #21, achieved on July 26, 2010.

Bellucci used a string of ITF Challenger tournament victories early in 2008 to break into the top 100 rankings of the ATP World Tour as a 20-year-old. In 2009, he reached his first tour final at the Brasil Open and won his first tour title at the Swiss Open. In 2010, He won his second tour title at the Movistar Open in Chile.

Thomaz's playing style is using the heavy topspin of his big forehand to control points. He lacks outright power to produce a lot of aces, but he has excellent spin on his serve, allowing him to force his opponents off of the court which leads to him taking the offensive at the beginning of the point. His two-handed backhand is much more compact than his forehand, and is flatter, which allows him to take balls earlier on his backhand wing and drive the ball for winners. His preferred court is clay, but shows the adaptive potential to get much better at faster courts as well.
