The quarterfinalists of the Oi Rio Pro 2015 have been decided in three-to-five foot (1 – 1.5 metre) surf at Barra da Tijuca.
The majority of the top seeds are out of competition. Will it be a game of the underdogs? Maybe. Filipe Toledo rapidly secured one of the eight tickets for the quarterfinals with a victory in Round 4 against Matt Banting and John John Florence.
“I’m spending a lot of time with my family and friends and that really helps. I really love the crowds here; it’s a real motivation for me and the best feeling in the world. I feel blessed to have this support,” revealed Toledo.
