Fernando Maynetto (born 2 December 1955) is a former professional tennis player from Peru.[1]


Maynetto, a national junior college champion, played at Wingate College, before joining Clemson University in 1975.[2]

He represented Peru in 10 Davis Cup ties during his career, from 1975 to 1985, but won just three of his 20 rubbers.[3]

The Peruvian reached the round of 16 in the men's doubles at the 1981 Wimbledon Championships, with Roberto Carruthers as his partner.[4] He wasn't ever able to make it past the opening round of the singles draw in a Grand Slam, from four attempts.[4] One of his losses was to Ivan Lendl at the 1982 French Open.[4]

His best results on tour came in the doubles, with two semi-final appearances, at Bogota in 1979 (partnering Ramiro Benavides) and Indianapolis in 1980 (partnering Carlos Gattiker).[4] He was a singles quarter-finalist at the Chilean Open in 1978 and at the South Orange Open two years later.[4]
