I thought I would post this when I saw it because I remembered an interview with Guga from years ago at Wimbledon and he spoke about his brother and how special he was to him. I hope Guga continues his plans to come back next year.

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.

Sod's Law. Horrible things seem to always happen to some of the nicest people in this world.

I hope Guga and his family find the strength to get through this difficult time.

it really touched me when I saw his brother in the stands celebrating one of Guga's Roland Garros wins.

condolences and my prayers go out to the Kuerten family.
