Gives some hope for the Bralizians that their tennis isn't dead after retirement of Guga
Certainly the biggest win in his career so far. Very good serving in the most important moments, at 5:5 hit great serve at each of three break points, also good serves at 3:4 in the tie-break.
The last point of the match
Who would have expected that he would finish the match with gentle stop-volley right after a serve?
Brazilian tennis is far from dead, at least outside of the very top. Regardless of Bellucci, If you look the ranking through 100-250 Brazil has about 10 Players and many of them quite young. Is one of the countries that does the better in CH. events. And much of it is thanks to Guga, sure.
Brazilian tennis at its base currently, is much better off now than when Guga was around. When there were less players potentially. Is what I mean.. I think is likely that in few years time, Brazilian tennis is going to do very well, along with Argentina.
