Video: Thomaz Bellucci Barely Escapes The Group Stages In São Paulo

Despite controversially being an outrageous amount of ranking spots higher than anyone else in the draw, Thomaz Bellucci barely crawled over the finishing line of the Round Robin group stages in the ATP Challenger Tour Finals, unimpressively scraping past Slovakia’s Martin Klizan 3-6 6-4 7-6(7). His win moved him safely through the group stages and into the semis, joining the already qualified Cedrik-Marcel Stebe, Dudi Sela and Andreas Beck. To say he was excited after defeating the world number 97 is quite the understatement.

And to top it off, he couldn’t even throw far enough for his armband to reach the crowd.

    The reactions from the Brazilian audience are hilarious. He’s just so… Bellucci. lol
    He made catch the last train home for two days.
    Fortunately, he’ll play 3PM today. I’ll be able to eat and stuff.
    But you know, what I’ve seen from him in the last few press conferences tells me that he’s VERY VERY VERY tired.
    And his girlfriend is so cute! She supports him all the time.

      Have you been there live?

      And I REFUSE to believe he has an actual girlfriend. Do they show her on-camera? I might have to watch the semifinal instead of ignoring him, then.
