PinExt Kuerten elected into the Tennis Hall of Fame

The 3 times Roland Garros champion and former world no.1 Gustavo Kuerten of Brazil has been elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Kuerten was a very popular player, many tennis fans admired and adored him. He was always full of smiles and everyone knows him under the nickname ´Guga´.

In 1997, he was only 20 years old when he captured the first of his three French Open titles. The next two triumphs came in 2000 and 2001.

“During my career in tennis I was fortunate to have many victories, but the Hall of Fame induction is a special one,” said Kuerten.

The Brazilian joins other tennis greats in the Hall of Fame, including Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi.

No doubt the most effective single handed backhand on clay ever and a well deserved hall of famer.
