The young member of the delegation albiceleste He is mature because of the experiences he has acquired with his idols. This is because the point of inflection in his career occurred in adolescence. "When I decided that I wanted to dedicate myself to professional tennis I was 14 years old. I talked with my parents and my coach, I changed school to stop doing double schooling and be able to have more time to train. Today I think it was the right decision. "

While, Santiago de la Fuente remember some sacrifices he had to make in his early years: "I decided to go to a tennis academy in Buenos Aires and I had to stop going to school. So I started studying online. I almost never go to my house to see my family because I train all week and I have tournaments permanently. "

Finally, Roman he is sure of himself: "I really can not imagine doing anything other than playing tennis, but if it does not happen, maybe play soccer or study something"The heir of Burruchaga he carries in his blood DNA of a winner, given that in the past he managed, together with Santiago, win the World Sub 14 in Republic Czech.
