If you currently don't know who Hugo Dellien is, you will probably soon be hearing more about him. Hugo has been training with the IMG Academy Bollettieri tennis program over the course of the past year and his hard work is beginning to pay dividends.
When the 17 year-old Hugo began his training with IMG Academy, he was struggling to qualify for Grand Slam events. Now, he has made his way up to the No.3 spot on the International Tennis Federation's most recent Junior Rankings list. With IMG, he received solid match play training while learning to compete and work like a professional on and off of the court. His training also included hitting sessions with some of tennis' best athletes, such as Maria Sharapova and Jelena Jankovic, which additionally helped elevate his game.
Dellien hails from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, a country not typically recognized for producing superior tennis players, making his success story even more special.
