I couldn't understand his speech, but his expressions and tears spoke for itself. It's really heartbreaking to see him so emotional But it is obvious how much the crowd appreciates him. Nobody has forgotten what Guga did for the sport and how he behaved. Tennis is going to lose an incredible personality

Re: The "Tenacious Florianopolis Surfers" Chat Thread!

Hey! He said that he would like to play still but he just can't, he doens't have any physical condittion, it is painful for him and it is hard to us cause he wnated but he just can't. And he said that at the moment he got into the court all the good memories from all the tourns. and all the good things that tennis gave to him crossed his mind. He thanked everyone, specially Larri, the brazilians and his family, that is quite heartbreaking once his brother to whom he dedicated all his trophys died last year. I believe that's all. I hope you like the bits!

Supporting FERNANDO VERDASCO, whatever it takes. Haters

MOYA!
Спасибо SAFIN!

GUGA, OBRIGADA!

Re: The "Tenacious Florianopolis Surfers" Chat Thread!

I have some tears, but only tears of joy for the tennis beauty he brought us.

I've known for sometime that Guga must retire. I was only waiting for him to finally know it as deep in his heart as he needed in order to say good-bye. This is not a condition that will ever let him play to the best of his ability. It is very sad indeed. He was like a comet that blazed with beauty and then is gone. We were all fortunate to be looking at the sky during his glory.

Without the injury he'd be a top 10 easily right now.

Guga is currently playing against Grosjean, after losing easily the first set 6-1, is fighting well in the second, it's 5-5!

6-1, 7-5, too bad he couldn't hold at 5-5 But I prefer 6-1, 7-5 than 7-5, 6-1, it shows that he could fight in the second set

Guga Kuerten
