He won the title in Bologna and played the final of Florence in 1993. In 1995, he played his last final of ATP level until his retirement, in Palermo. In 1997, Burillo won the Open Castilla y León, considered best Challenger of the world by this date. And, this year, the court was so fast (and consequently his game, and his hits) that only Francisco Clavet (semifinals) could end his match against Burillo. All his other rivals in the tournament gave up due to injuries.
