Hey guys! I´m brazilian and it´s great to see a thread about Estherzinha. Her biography is fantastic. I didn´t see her in action. I just saw an old videos and documentarys about her. Unfortunately, we didn´t have another brazilian great tennis player. Niege Dias became 32# in 80´s and Andreia Vieira beat Hana Mandlikova in the French Open first round (89). Estherzinha doesn´t made many interviews to brazilian midia, but last year she did. She talk about Federer, her trips, the difference between today´s and past´s games, her achievements, Margaret Court, Billie Jean, Althea Gibson...
My english isn´t so good. I hope you understand
You're English is great Brazilian Friend- welcome to the Blast From the Past!

So most Brazilians know her as Estherzinha? Is the zihha a feminine ending?
Hope we hear more from you. Angela Mortimer wrote a bit about Bueno in her book-I'll see if I can post some.
