Eugenio Saller

Dear members of the IC community,

It is with great sorrow and sadness that I inform that Eugenio Saller, our former Brazil IC President, and later Honorary President, passed away yesterday at the age of 88.

Eugenio was an excellent tennis player in his youth, and even until recently was seen on the tennis courts of our beloved club in São Paulo. He later became a successful businessman, and actively supported tennis through corporate sponsorships and his own personal time commitment.

Eugenio will be sorely missed by our entire tennis community in Brazil, and specially by our Brazil IC, which he so enthusiastically supported for almost twenty years!
