Tennis careerEdit

JuniorsEdit

Di Pasquale excelled as a junior, posting a 103–25 record in singles and reaching the No. 1 ranking in December 1997 (and No. 17 in doubles). He won the boys' singles competition at the 1997 US Open (and made the semifinals of the Australian and French Open).

Pro tourEdit

Di Pasquale is best known winning the bronze medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics in the men's singles event. He beat Nicolas Kiefer, Vladimir Voltchkov, Juan Carlos Ferrero and rising Roger Federer in the bronze medal match, but more surprising was his straight-sets victory over the well established Magnus Norman of Sweden, in the tournament's third round. He also reached the fourth round of the French Open in both 1999 and 2002 and won one singles title (in Palermo, 1999).
