Rio de Janeiro, Sunday, 14 March 2010
Gustavo Kuerten, Fernando Meligeni, Thomaz Koch and former world No. 1 Jim Courier and
Mats Wilander are eternalized in the Maracanãzinho "Walk of Fame".
On Sunday, in an emotional ceremony, the five players left the marks of their hands in casts.
One of the honorees, however, did not attend. Marat Safin, who also reached the top
of the world rankings and was the main attraction of this edition of the Rio Champions,
lost track of the time and missed the event in court. The Russian came to the gym shortly
after the ceremony and, in the VIP area, recorded the marks of his hands.
Tsk, tsk, naughty Marat.
