Simone Bolelli (Italian pronunciation: [si'mo:ne bo'l?lli]; born 8 October 1985) is an Italian professional tennis player. Bolelli is a Grand Slam champion since he won the 2015 Australian Open doubles event with Fabio Fognini, becoming the first all Italian men's pair to win a Grand Slam title in the Open Era.

Career

2003

In 2003, Bolelli reached his first ITF Futures tournament semifinal at Egypt F1, losing to 485th-ranked Jaroslav Pospí?il. He played entirely Futures events except for one Challenger tournament in Brindisi.

2004-2005

2004 saw Simone reached his second Futures final, losing to Dominique Coene. He made another final and won two Futures titles, making two wins out of three finals for Futures finals in the 2004 season. He won the Italy F15 and F8 titles, and lost in the final of a Challenger event in Bra?ov. In 2005, Bolelli reached the final of a Challenger in Trani.

2006

Simone Bolelli played in a few tournaments higher than a Challenger, receiving a wildcard into the Rome Masters. He also won the Como Futures tournament and made the final of Recanati, before losing to Davide Sanguinetti. He won his first Challenger singles title over Ivo Miná?, and then made the final of a Challenger in Bergamo where he lost to Alex Bogdanovi?.

2007

Bolelli beat former world no. 1 Marat Safin in Barcelona and competed in the Miami, Rome and Hamburg Masters. He made his Grand Slam debut at the 2007 French Open.

2008

Bolelli was banned by The Italian Tennis Federation from national team events for skipping the Davis Cup tie with Latvia in Europe-Africa zone relegation playoff. The ban prevented Bolelli from playing in Davis Cup competition and the Olympics. It also prevented him from getting wild cards. Bolelli said that he had told Italy captain Corrado Barazzutti well in advance of the tie that he preferred to work on his fast-court game in Asia.
