The 2017 season marked the pinnacle of Marcelo Melo’s trajectory in tennis. The Brazilian tennis player was a winner in Wimbledon and got three Masters 1000 titles. With a long lead in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) ranking, Melo, 34, plans to win another Grand Slam and dreams of making a good campaign at ATP Finals, a competition that has not yet won and was a win to be champion.

“I would like to win another Grand Slam title. No matter what, I would be extremely happy to win one more. I like the Australian Open and ATP Finals, that we (he and Lukasz Kubot) went well that year (he lost the final to Henri Kontinen and John Peers by straight sets), “said Marcelo Melo before talking about his long-term plans to Brazilian newspaper Gazeta Desportiva.

The goal for 2018 is to evolve as a duo after a first season of “tweaking” and “learning” the way his teammate works. “Our goal is to continue to maintain the same level and evolve. We have to evolve in some points to keep ourselves at a high level, “concluded Marcelo Melo.
