Pro career

He experienced significant problems with a back injury, but in 2006 made a comeback, which has seen him edge towards the top 100 in the ATP rankings.

Has played 9 Davis Cup matches in singles, and won 3 of them.

In the 2009 World Group Playoffs in March 2009, Sweden faced Israel in Vinciguerra's hometown. Dudi Sela first defeated Vinciguerra 11-9 in the fifth. Harel Levy then beat Vinciguerra in the decisive final match in a marathon 3-hour, 44 minutes, 8-6 in the fifth, to lead the Israeli team to a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the 7-time Davis Cup champion Swedes at Baltic Hall in Malmö, Sweden, and allow Israel to advance in the 2009 Davis Cup.[1]

After the Davis Cup, Vinciguerra decided to continue playing and reached in his first tournament of the year the final at the Rome Challenger. He then received a Wild Card to the Swedish Open where he made it to the semifinals.
