Winning an Olympic medal for Brazilian tennis would be unprecedented. Both Marcelo Melo and I have shown our potential and we will be going to Rio 2016 at the height of our careers. We will intensify our work, dedicate ourselves, train and sweat, so that we arrive prepared and ready to fight for gold.
