It was so fantastic that, now the occasion was there, ITF Brussels (Virginia Dionisi and Gonzalo Tejerina) took the opportunity to invite him  once again. After the World Championships in Dublin, Marcelo and his daughter were still in Europe and they were eager to come over to Belgium this Sunday October 22nd, in the venue Sportscity in Woluwe.
