Unhappy Gustavo's brother Guilherme has died

Brother of tennis player Gustavo Kuerten dies

Rio de Janeiro - Guilherme, the younger brother of former tennis world number one Gustavo Kuerten, died Wednesday of a respiratory arrest. Guilherme Kuerten, 28, who suffered from cerebral palsy, died at the University Hospital in Florianopolis, accompanied by his brothers Gustavo and Rafael and his mother Alice, said the publicist of the winner of three French Open titles. He was to be buried Thursday in Florianopolis.

Despite his health problems, Guilherme travelled the world with his brother.

"I take him everywhere I can," Kuerten said of his brother at the height of his tennis career. "Sometimes, I will take him someplace where you wouldn't expect a handicapped guy to go, like parties. But what's nice, really, is for me to just share moments with him."

The laid-back Kuerten always credited his brother with his own ability to enjoy life and keep things simple.
