It's the first time I read something about that player.
With 60 years in 2010 and having left the tennis at 19, this means that he ended his career in 1969. At that time there was no ATP ranking, which began in 1973. Anyway I doubt this news is correct. He does not appear in the tables of the U.S. Open or Roland Garros of 1968 and 1969. And if he was really good at this time, his story was certainly well known in Portugal, which does not happen.
