The Alagoan Eurico Cahu, number 209 in the world, celebrated his greatest achievement at home when he lifted the BT 10 tournament trophy.

Last year we lost in the semifinal, this year we managed to reach the final, a lot of emotion, playing at home, all with us, it’s inexplicable”, vibrated Eurico : “We started with a medium low intensity and in the second set we started better, we opened advantage, we managed and in the super tie-break we also opened advantage in the beginning”, he continued.

Albuquerque won his first ITF title in his career: “It was one of my goals to win an ITF title, I have to thank Eurico and the guys here at Marechal Deodoro”.
