Video: Fede Del Bonis’ Big Breakthrough In Stuttgart

Not only did Stuttgart witness the comeback of a great champion in Juan Carlos Ferrero - it also saw the rise of a possible future star in Argentina’s Federico Del Bonis.

Delbo couldn’t quite follow in the footsteps of his compatriot Delpo, who stormed to the title in 2008 before embarking on a summer-long winning streak, but he did enough to put himself back into relevance amongst his contemporaries after a poor first half of the year. After upsetting Florian Mayer in the first round, Del Bonis eased into his first tour semi-final before giving Ferrero a tough three-setter in the semis.

It remains to be seen whether Del Bonis has the talent to really become a world beater, but the guy’s forehand is pure brilliance and his backhand ain’t too shabby either, so I wouldn’t bet against him reaching the top 20/30 at the very least.
