Giacomo Miccini

This article is part of our Italian Week on Tennis Buzz.

A couple of years ago, Giacomo Miccini was seen as the next big thing for italian tennis.

Miccini was part of the italian team which claimed the world junior championships in 2006, was ranked in the juniors top 20 at only 15, and was seen as a brilliant prospect by Bollettieri himself.

But of course, good results in juniors doesn’t mean success on the ATP tour. The transition from juniors to pros is never easy (unless your name is Nadal): who remembers Brian Dunn, Federico Browne or Kristian Pless all junior world champions?
Italian players like Nargiso and Pistolesi for example were really promising at a young age but failed to have a big impact on the ATP circuit:
Diego Nargiso won the junior Wimbledon championship in 1987 and reached his highest ranking at 18 (number 67)
Claudio Pistolesi, junior world champion, whose best ranking was 71

Whereas Ryan Harrison and Bernard Tomic, his former rivals in the juniors (born in 92 like Miccini), are starting to make a name for themselves, Giacomo has decided to attend the University of Arizona to mature as a person and as a player and eventually turn pro in 3 or 4 years.

All we can wish for him is the same success as John Isner who spent 4 years in college before turning professional. But I seriously doubt it… he could perhaps follow the footsteps of fellow italian Davide Sanguinetti who attended UCLA, captured 2 ATP titles and reached the top 50.

Kim Clijsters, Venus Williams, Sam Stosur and Elena Dementieva storm into fourth round.

– On the men’s side, Gilles Simon beat 29th seed Kohlschreiber in 5 sets and will meet world number one Rafael Nadal in the third round. Andy Murray, John Isner, Sam Querrey and David Nalbandian also advanced to round 3.

US player of the day: Ryan Harrison
He wasted 3 match points in the the fifth of his second round match against Stakhovsky, but for many experts, Harrison is hope for future of U.S. tennis.

Stat of the day: 9
For those who still think that Spanish players are only clay court specialists, 9 men players from Spain qualified for the third round: Nadal, Lopez, Ferrer, Gimeno-Traver, Verdasco, Almagro, Robredo, Montanes, Ferrero.

Player of the day: Venus Williams
With her 6-2 6-1 win over Mandy Minella, Venus reached the fourth round for the 12th time in 12 trips to Flushing Meadows. She won the tournament in 2000 and 2001 and was the runner-up in 1997 and 2002.

Matches to follow on day 6:

James Blake(USA) vs. Novak Djokovic(SRB)[3]
Svetlana Kuznetsova(RUS)[11] vs. Maria Kirilenko(RUS)[23]
