-He ended the season playing the Petrobras Masters (exihibition with nice prize money), qualified to final and then lost to Luczak.
-His coach is not Leonardo Azevedo anymore. Azevedo is his coach since October 2007. A new coach wasn't announced yet.

I have my suspicious it could be influence of the Brazil DC team captain, but it's likely I'm wrong.
