http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aRY1W_CYOY

Thanks in advance :)
Ede, I'm learning English and I don't talk Spanish. I speak Portuguese and I've tried translate for you with my poor English. But the interview was very nice! Thank you for it. It was the most informal that I've ever seen. Thank you for share!!

Gustavo is being interviewed by Argentinean reporter. He answer always in a cheerful mood.

Argentinean Reporter: Costa de Sauípe is finished. How many hours (without stop) do you spend surfing?

Gustavo Kuerten: 6 when I was young. But now I'm too old! (laughing)

AR: Which are the best beaches to surf in Brazil?

GR: Mar Del Plata (everybody laugh becouse it's an Argentinean beach)... the water is very warm!

AR: When you travel to play tennis, do you carry the board (is this? what they use to surf) in competitions where you know it's possible surf?

GK: No. Because I'm very professional. The true is that for me, tennis is above all.

AR: Did you invite some tennis players to surf with you?

GK: Nicolas Lapentti has talent.

AR: Is he who move better inside the water?

GK: From sand to water, he spend 1 hour (laughing). He is very slow!!!

AR: Which is the secret to don't take fungus? Dry the slippers very well?

GK: Yes... hygiene.

AR: If in the club doesn't have slippers to take shower with, what do you do?

GK: I have the Gustavo Kuertens'slippers.

AR: And this T-shirt is yours too? (Guga Kuerten clothes mark)

GK: Yes.

AR: And the shorts?

GK: Too.

AR: How many inhabitants has Florianopolis (Gustavo's city)?

GK: 300.000. But in the Summer, 700.000 Argentineans!!! (laughing)

AR: I knew it!...

AR: You won your first Roland Garros... they gave to you the microphone... speech... nervous...

GK: I didn't know what I wanted say because I never waited win!...

AR: After that, did you regret about give thanks for someone else ou say something else?

GK: Yes. I forgot something. Because it, I needed win again!!! (laughing)

AR: Choose to change one of yours tennis's trophies for one Surf's Champion World... I guess won't be the 3 RGs... maybe a Championship Series... or another...

GK: I don't like change... (laughing)

AR: With so many trophies... No one?

GK: No one!

(Ferrero left and GK ask if the Gatorade's bottles belong to him. He answered that yes, but GK can take it. GK always in a good mood, says that now he can have more...)

AR: In your free time, you choose: internet, playstation or movie's channel?

GK: Guitar. I play it a little.

AR: Do you know that Sarreta gave us a mini concert?

GK: Then the audience falled a lot!!! (laughing)

AR: No! I swear! He doesn't play badly!

AR: We present you with the best glasses from Argentina: Infinit.

GK, wearing the glasses: I'll go to the beach!...
