It is possibly the game they will never forget. Brazilians Laura Pigossi and Luisa Stefani defeated the Russian duo of Veronika Kudermetova and Elena Vesnina 4-6, 6-4 and 11-9 to win the bronze medal at Tokyo 2020.
Undoubtedly, a historical fact for Brazil, since this is the first medal he has obtained in tennis at the Olympic Games. In addition, it should be noted that the South American couple entered the Games at the last minute.
And if something made this game more epic is that the Brazilian tennis players saved four match points that, given the lack of effectiveness of the Russians, they were the kick to reverse the result and take the victory.
This way, South American tennis achieves at least one medal for the 5th consecutive time at the Games.
