Former world number one tennis player and two-time Grand Slam champion Evgeny Kafelnikov has been crowned Russia's golf champion at the national championship in the Moscow Region.

Conquering two sports professionally, it's nowhere near an easy task. Hey, we all know Michael Jordan couldn't do it . Pretty impressive stuff!

Re: Former world #1 Tennis Player Now Claims Golf Championship - WOW!

Congrats to Kafelnikov! I can Imagine being Russia golf champion, it's not that HARD, but he's a borned tennis talent. Being able too be champion in 2 different sports, it's a very unusual feature!

Proud fan of:

Sporting Clube de Portugal, Fútbol Club Barcelona, Newcastle United Football Club, FK Vilniaus Žalgiris

Hahah to those saying being the best at a sport in your country is not that hard. Too funny. Why are you guys on your computers than, rather than being the best at your sport?

This 10000 TIMES. They are pathetic when trying to troll that weak.

Kafelnikov was my favorite player when I started being a tennis fan on 2000. He had won the 2 GS already. I remember almost crying when he won the olympic gold medal. He was a warrior, and Im glad to hear he still is.

Congratz to a real SPORT MAN

Nadal will be next. He's obsessed with playing golf.

Moonballing will come handy though

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
