Recently retired Gustavo “Guga” Kuerten Monday accepted the challenge set fourth by American tennis legend John McEnroe. Guga’s response came one day after McEnroe said he wanted to face off against Kuerten after winning the Rio Champions tennis tournament. “Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to play against McEnroe. I am going to prepare my best for the match,” said Kuerten, the former world number one and three-time winner of the Roland Garros. But the date for the Kuerten-McEnroe clash is yet to be set.
Guga is currently preparing for an exhibition game in June in his home town Florianopolis, Santa Catarina. He is scheduled to play in an exhibition game against retired Spanish player Sergi Bruguera, whom he had beaten in 1997 when he won his first title in Roland Garros.
