I follow Brandao (No.681) since Futures 15 tournament in Brazil. Initially wanting to play against him because he retired in the tournament before but tracking his progress and flow schema of the matches I would rate him pretty good. No offset, the whole game plays quite evenly, no significant disposal collapse during the game. At futures 15 reached the semi-finals of the tournament stopping on No.308 atp Fabrico Neis and along the way defeating dangerous Sorgi. In the next futures had no luck in the draw hitting the later finalist in 1st round - Tiago Lopes (No.508), who beat Filipe 7: 6 6: 4.
Now it's time to represent of a hosts. He is slightly higher in the ranking - 660 place. Since September, only playing tournaments at home country. Last period was very avarage by him. Won only over outside 9 hundred ATP players. As a plus, you can include his winning the first set against Fabricio Neis 6-0, 5-7, 1-6 ( date 6/10/14), but the course of this meeting, and especially the first set was very strange / suspicious performed by the Brazilian. Ricardo in September and October tugging something and as closer the new year is his results getting worse. I think it's finally time for a holiday for Rivera and Brandao has something to prove yet.
