Para os que acham que a interpretação que tenho feito das performances e resultados da Saca no WCT são apenas a visão cega e parcial do patriotismo:
"To my mind the unluckiest surfer this year has been Tiago Pires. At most contests he has posted some of the highest scores in any round, only to be beaten by an inspired performance. He should have nailed a couple 5ths and 9ths to go along with the impressive Rip Curl Pro Search 3rd, but he finds himself languishing at #32, even though he has been surfing like an ASP Top 10er."
