Sao Paulo-SP) – At the opening ceremony of the Roland Garros Junior Series, held this Tuesday at Ibirapuera Park, stars of the past, such as Teliana Pereira, Fernando Meligeni and the main star of the event, Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, had the opportunity to mingle , albeit briefly with the next generation. Among them was Luis Augusto Miguel from Goiás, seed 1 in the men’s division.

“It was a unique experience, I really enjoyed the moment and I was very happy to have been invited”, said Guto, who showed ease when sharing the court with Meligeni and competing for some points with the Roland Garros semi-finalist 25 years ago.

Despite his young age, Guto also knows what it’s like to compete in a Grand Slam semi, as last year he reached the penultimate stage of Wimbledon in the 14-year-old category. “I played in a preparatory tournament for Wimbledon, which was my first experience on grass”, said the man from Goiás.

“I trained before going there, on artificial grass courts, but getting there is completely different. Playing there was a dream, I really enjoyed the moment and had a good campaign”, added the 15-year-old tennis player, who wants to remain humble even after his success at the All England Club.

“My coaches always tell me to keep my feet on the ground, remain humble and not let these things get to my head. It’s incredible to be talking to the press, I even had a meeting to talk about it and I think I’m coping well”, said the young tennis player, who makes his debut at the Roland Garros Junior Series at 4pm (Brasília time) this Wednesday.

Almost a year after playing on the traditional Wimbledon grass, he is now hoping to get a place on the Parisian clay. “I really want to emerge as champion of this tournament, which gives a place to Roland Garros. It’s a good chance and I’m going to give it my all”, concluded Guto.
