The diminutive world-champion duo promises to brighten up the Tijuca Tennis Club this Saturday.
On IBJJF.com’s list of those confirmed for the Brazilian Team nationals, Guilherme and Rafael Mendes are among those in the lineup. Team member Gilbert Durinho is another to confirm the siblings will see action.
