CareerEdit

2011Edit

In 2011 Romboli began his season at the Brazil Futures 1, losing in the second round to Ricardo Hocevar 4–6, 6–4, 1–6. He then participated in the São Paulo Challengers tournament, again losing in the round of 16, 6–3, 1–6, 1–6 to Thomas Fabbiano. Participating in the Seguros Bolívar Open Bucaramanga next, he had to enter the draw through the Qualifiers. Despite this setback, he easily beat his two qualifier opponents in straight sets to cement his spot in the main draw. He then produced the best tournament of his career, winning every match he played, dropping only three sets, and recording his first Challenger Circuit title. He then got a wildcard to enter his first ATP World Tour event, the Brasil Open, where he lost his first round match in straight sets.

2012Edit

After testing positive to diuretics furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide, Romboli was banned for eight-and-a-half months.[2]
