Gustavo Tiberti (born 11 December 1959) is a former professional tennis player from Argentina.[1]

Career[edit]

Tiberti defeated American qualifier Charles Strode in the opening round of the 1982 French Open.[2] In the second round he met Damir Keretić, who he had beaten two weeks earlier in Florence, but on this occasion proved too strong for Tiberti in a five setter.[2] At the 1983 French Open he again faced Keretic, this time in a first round match, which he lost in four sets.[2]

On tour he had his best ever showing in 1982, at the Swedish Open, where he reached the semi-finals with wins over Thierry Tulasne, Jonathan Smith and Carl-Axel Hageskog.[2] He was defeated by a young Mats Wilander in his semi-final.[3]

He had a good year playing doubles in 1986, finishing runner-up at two Grand Prix events, the Copa Banco Galacia (Buenos Aires) and Geneva Open.[2] With his partner from those finals, Gustavo Luza, Tiberti also made the round of 16 at that year's French Open doubles.[2]
