Well, retirement!

First match for Guga in a very long time is vs Carlos Berlocq from Argentina currently rank 75 in Brasil Open. It will be a very tough match and chance for a win is low.

Go Guga Go!

Re: The "Tenacious Florianopolis Surfers" Chat Thread!

ouch are you serious, he couldn't move
I understand so much why he wants to retire as soon as possible, he can't be healthy anymore and I'm sure he tried as hard he could, we're still proud of your efforts Guga

Lots of aces from Berlocq (even 2nd serve) because Guga could not move. And he did not bother to chase any dropshots.

His farewell speech was very touching.

Re: The "Tenacious Florianopolis Surfers" Chat Thread!

Just watched his speech, my eyes are still all teary This is just way too sad, the way it ends, but in the end you can only remember the great memories Guga brought us He was so emotional out there, you could almost touch it, I will miss him so much

Will he really play the next TMS events he was supposed to play?? His body clearly won't let him, is it really necessary you think?
