“This guy can play. Solid on both sides. He lost to Navone in the quarterfinals, but you have to keep an eye on him. João Fonseca. I was very impressed watching him in Rio. And the Brazilian public is hungry for a superstar,” said Roddick , on his podcast, called “Served”.

“I saw Guga Kuerten being applauded there, he’s one of the nicest guys you can meet in tennis. And it looks like we’re going to have someone who will at least come close to Guga in Fonseca.”
