How did you start to play Beach Tennis?
I stopped playing professional tennis in 2007 and was working with tennis in Rio de Janeiro when i met Beach Tennis. In 2008 Beach Tennis arrived in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), invited me to try and then compete for a World Championship in Italy (Marina de Ravenna).
What are you particularly looking forward to in Saarlouis?
This will be the first big tournament of Beach Tennis in Germany and it is great to know that the ITF Professional Circuit is growing and looking for new places, like the city of Saarlouis. I’ve never been to Saarlouis but it seems to be a lively town during the summer.
What was your personal highlight in your Beach Tennis career?
Being number one in the world in 2013 was one of the best moments of my career. Me and my partner Samantha Barijan were the first non-Italian players to achieve this placement.
