    I saw this guy(Joseph Sirianni) play at a club in my area, he played for a dutch team (he's an aussie) but he gets payed for it by some dutch sponsors.
    He hit REALLY hard, he smacked every ball on his forehand side right in the corners or down the line it was really awesome to see him play.
    My question is do you guys know him? has he accomplished something big?

    Check out this link for more info. Very respectable career, but considering the fact that he was born in 1975, I don't think Hewitt and the up and coming Aussies have too much to worry about. Did he seem pretty friendly?

    Hope the link helps out :D

    He looks like a respectable Challenger level guy.

    the guy is really talented...he probably could have "made it" but the word on the street is that he never wanted to travel...he never really plays tournaments outside of Australia other than to play club tennis in the summer because he makes so much money playing club tennis that he can live comfortably by dominating the futures/challengers in Australia year round and keep his ranking in the 200 range...

    pretty smart guy in my opinion, skip the grind of travel...play tennis, win matches, live well without exerting yourself.

    I think he beat Mirnyi at the Australian one year. If you read his Diary on the website, I think you'll see that he travelled quite a bit.

    Yeah, he's quite old now(31?) but he really played well when I saw him.
    I've seen some other pro's too but he hit really better than for example c.rochus.
    He played on artificial grass when I saw him play and he was mentally extremely strong!!
