Putting not just his country but the Latin American continent as a whole on the table tennis map, Hugo Calderano has emerged as one of the sport’s finest young players from outside the Asian and European scene.

Calderano’s most impressive year to date was surely 2018 as the Brazilian star claiming a silver medal finish at the 2018 Qatar Open, qualifying for the 2018 World Tour Grand Finals and securing a top 10 position in the World Rankings for the first time.
