Paul Baccanello (born 12 June 1979, in Adelaide) is a former Australian professional tennis player. He has sustained various injuries during his career, which have hampered his results.

Career

Baccanello managed to qualify for the main draw at Wimbledon in 2003. He defeated former top 100 player Ivo Heuberger in the first round, before falling in a tight four set match to Croatian Ivo Karlovi? in the second round. As a result, he earned a career best prize-money of over $23,000 and rose 37 places in the ATP rankings. In arguably his best performance to date, he did manage to reach the semi-finals of the Challenger event at Segovia in 2003, where he played Rafael Nadal. In a close match, Baccanello took Rafael to a tie-break in the first set, before Nadal took control in the second set, winning 7-6, 6-4. His career high singles ranking of 129 was achieved on 3 November 2003, after other strong performances on the Challenger circuit.

Baccanello currently has a 2-8 ATP record and has earned a total of $261,855 prize money in his career.
