I am immensely proud of the milestones I achieved, the victories I secured, and the remarkable experiences that have shaped me as both an athlete and an individual.
Having dedicated my life to tennis, I embarked on a remarkable journey that led me to achieve a ranking within the prestigious Top 100 of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) singles rankings.
I proudly recall my participation in the Davis Cup at Jamor, as well as the human warmth and good energy shown at the final of Estoril Open ATP in 2010. In 2011 I reached the quarter finals at Monte Carlo Masters ATP and was, at the time, amongst the 8 best clay tennis players of the world.
I was the first Portuguese to hit $1M in career prize money and helped to elevate the name and status of tennis in Portugal. This made the new generation believe it was possible to go beyond everything that had been achieved internationally until then!
Throughout my professional career, I showcased my skills, perseverance, and unwavering commitment to the sport.
Competing against some of the world's best players on the ATP tour, I faced thrilling challenges and honed my abilities on the court.
