André "Alemão" Ghem

This is the thread for André Ghem, the Brazilian with a big serve. He won his first challenger title last week in Joinville, and this result put him in the top 200. Don't know if we can expect him to achieve bigger things in his career, only time will tell. Due to the lack of sponsors and financial conditions, his career only really started when he was 21, at mid 2003. Earlier this year he received a WC to the Brasil Open and made good use of it, beating Guga in the first round and taking eventual finalist Beto Martin to a third set in the 2nd round.

Good luck André..Iam Andrés lol ¡:yeah:

André lost in first round of USO-Qualifications to Alejandro Falla 4-6, 4-6

Yeah, it was a close match though, Falla just managed to take his chances. The draw wasn't very kind to André, but it was a good experience for him.

He has been a top 200 for a while. I expect him to break the top 150i or 100 in 2007. Nice achievements, André, congratulations!!
At doubles he is demoshiling, with different partners! Many titles!
Well done!

Ghem retired at 3-1 down in the 3rd set, hope it isn't too serious. He and Daniel withdrew from their doubles.

Hope Ghem can get out of this one and win the match. I'd like him to play Lucho, at least one of them will make the QFs that way.

10-07-2008, 01:26 AM
Uhm, sadly Ghem lost 7-6(4) 1-6 6-4.

Action Jackson
10-07-2008, 01:31 AM
Hope Lucho lays the beatdown on Fabbri.

These events are tough and Ghem isn't too far away from a career best high ranking, but it seemed like a close match and didn't take the chances.

Andre has had shoulder surgery and will be out of tennis until March at the earliest, but April looks more likely.

I think he will be having the barbecues, chasing the girls at the beach, hehe.

12-27-2008, 01:07 PM
Are this old news? Cuz I can't remember of it and there's nothing about it on Brazilian tennis websites :shrug:

I won a CD box of a gaúcha band with another "Alemão" as the vocalist on Christmas. Ghem should like it too :lol:

Action Jackson

Lets say I got this news from a good source.

12-27-2008, 01:55 PM
:eek: I won't ask who is the source :p

I have Ghem as a friend on Orkut, but I stopped sending him messages :lol: two years ago I used to send him good luck, congratulate him for a win or ask for his schedule once in a while.

At least I can see his pictures. ( ( ( ( ( (

What a character :lol: The last one is at one of the Uzbekistan challengers he did well.

Ghem is hilarious in so many ways and a huge Gremista as well.

I hope Ghem can recover smoothly :cool:

The pictures I guess were taken in Hawaii- Waikoloa. He has a tatoo now around his neck, it's like a chaplet.

Gaúchos are good in several things, churrasco, tennis and music among them, as you talked about rock here goes a clip of a great gaúcho musician, Wander Wildner (from Replicantes), singing in Spanish(!) "Rodando el Mundo" as a tribute to all players who travel around the world like Ghem.

Ghem is going to play some Futures events in Brasil to see how his shoulder holds up. Then in the European summer, he is going over there to play Challengers.

He will have a PR of 226.

Great :yeah:

His current ranking is #218 (346 points), he has 40 points to defend until June, so he will probably be close to his protected ranking and even might not use it.

06-30-2009, 07:45 PM
Ghem is first alternate for Recanati Challenger and fifth in Poznan (week 29) :D

he is ranked as 260, is not using protected ranking.
