Re: Guga's articles

This was already mentioned in the Picture Thread, but ATP has reported it now...

December 16, 2005
Vogue RG Devotes 23 Pages to Cover Boy Kuerten


© Vogue BR

Three time Roland Garros champion Gustavo Kuerten is on newsstands throughout Brazil on the cover of the December issue of VOGUE RG Brazil.

Guga, who is playing the Copa Argentina this week, in Buenos Aires, in preparation for the 2006 season, recently launched his own fashion brand and store (Guga Kuerten).

On the eve of the launch, Guga spent two days shooting for VOGUE, one in a studio, in São Paulo and another one at one of his favorite beaches, in Florianopolis, Praia Brava.

“For me it was a first-time experience, taking pictures with my own clothes," Kuerten said. "It was different, very tiring – almost eight hours in the studio, but also fun and I enjoyed it. I hardly do this kind of stuff, because it takes a lot of time and I am always practicing and busy with my tennis. But when I was approached by VOGUE, I thought about it and I knew they were going to do something special and the result is really amazing.”

“Guga Kuerten, the genious of the courts invests in fashion and becomes a brand owner,” says the cover.

Inside, the magazine dedicated 23 pages to the star, including an interview and words of praise from sports great, Pelé and tennis legend Thomaz Koch.

“I met Guga when I was the Minister of Sports. I already admired him a lot as an athlete and from then on I started admiring the person much more,” says Pelé.

Re: Guga's articles

The Davis Cup team for the tie against Peru has been confirmed: Guga, Saretta, Mello and Sá.

M. Daniel was left out, as expected by most people. He doesn't have good relationships with the other team members since the incident when he refused to take part on the DC boycott leaded by Guga in March, 2004.

Re: Guga's articles

Mesmo otimista, Guga não garante plena forma na Davis01/02/2006 às 10h13
Gustavo Kuerten não está em total forma para o início de sua temporada. O tricampeão de Roland Garros admitiu nesta quarta-feira que a torção no pé, sofrida na semana passada durante treinamentos e que o impediu de disputar o ATP de Viña del Mar, não é grave, mas que nem assim está 100% para o duelo contra o Peru, dentro de 10 dias.

"Analisando agora, de forma geral, eu diria que foi mais um susto", diz Guga sobre o incidente. O jogador foi mais reticente ao responder se estaria 100% na Davis. "Agora vai depender de como vou me recuperar, mas pelo menos não tive nenhuma lesão que vá me comprometer a longo prazo".

O ex-número 1 do mundo manteve o otimismo que é quase uma regra em suas entrevistas, embora tenha feito apenas previsões e análises vagas sobre seu retorno. "Não posso me apressar, tenho que ir aos poucos. Já estou treinando novamente, o que é um bom sinal para que as coisas melhorem e de repente eu possa chegar na Davis em um bom nível", disse. "Mas é um torneio de cinco sets, então ainda tem muito teste pela frente. Vai ser um período de reavaliação".

O tricampeão de Roland Garros admitiu que, em razão da torção, terá de "dar alguns passos atrás". Ainda assim, contou que estava animado com o nível em que se encontrava antes da contusão. "Eu estava muito feliz e confiante para encarar os torneios, mas acabou acontecendo um imprevisto. Vou ter que esperar novamente para me sentir como estava antes, não posso me apressar de jeito nenhum".

Guga apareceu no challenger de Florianópolis, deu autógrafos, tirou fotos com fãs e reencontrou seu ex-técnico Larri Passos. Depois de um entusiasmado abraço, perguntou sobre o jogo de Bruno Rosa, novo pupilo de Larri, e repetiu os elogios ao torneio que já fizera durante a entrevista. "Acho que, na realidade, no momento que estamos vivendo no tênis é legal que a gente tenha um ATP, mas o challenger é o que acrescenta mais para quem está tentando surgir, para quem quer despontar", explicou.

Re: Guga's articles

Thanks for the article, Vanessa. I guess things are not looking good for Brazilian DC team Sa also retired from a match vs Simoni a few days ago with an injury.

Re: Guga's articles

I think I post it somewhere.

Of 4 players in the DC team, 2 retired from their last match, 1 hasn't played for 4 months one hasn't won a match so far this year.

Edit: OK, Saretta played yesterday but lost.

Re: Guga's articles

Guga is not sponsored by Banco do Brasil anymore. They couldn't have an agreement about the financial aspects of the contract, it seems. So a 6-year relationship was finished today.
