Gustavo Kuerten    

Retired World No. 1 Professional Tennis Player & International Tennis Hall of Famer

Gustavo Kuerten, nicknamed Guga, is a retired World No. 1 tennis player from Brazil. He won the French Open singles title three times (1997, 2000, and 2001), and was the Tennis Masters Cup champion in 2000. Kuerten suffered many problems with injuries which resulted in his non-attendances at many tournaments between 2002 and 2005. After a few failed attempted comebacks, he retired from top-level tennis in May 2008. During his career he won 20 singles and 8 doubles titles.

He was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2012. In 2016, he was asked to be the torch bearer for the Rio Olympics.
