Pereira Knows Well That Success Is Relative

WEEK:  04.18.2016

Teliana Pereira is the mover of the week after she lost last week in the first round of the Claro Open Colsanitas, Bogota.  She was the defending champion. Yet, she has already overcome so many obstacles in her life and a decline in her ranking will be placed in its proper perspective.  Two knee surgeries did not derail her and neither will this.  In 2015 she won her first two career singles titles and reached a career high ranking of number 43 later in the year.  It was an exciting year for the Brazilian tennis player, who celebrated her victories in a special way with friends and family.   Despite the slow start to the 2016 season, she is looking forward to representing her country at the Summer Olympics and perhaps jump-start her season.
