My coach used to train with both Hicham and El Aynaoui and they're good friends. In case anyone's wondering what's happened to Aarazi, he's doing real estate development in Morocco and has dropped out of tennis.

I saw Hicham 2 weeks ago in Paris, he told me he will play more next season, that he needs more matches....And also that he will try for 2 years, and if it doesnt work......He will retire

Re: Younès El Aynaoui's fan thread

In the week of December 4th, Younes El Aynaoui was invited in an exhibition masters event in Copa Cabbana in Brazil (Final of Copa Petrobas) and surprised everybody again by dismissing all his three round robin opponents: Guga 6/3 6/2, Saretta 6/1 6/4 and Diego Hartfield 7/6 6/3 before losing in the final against Guillermo Canas 6/7 6/4 10/5 (MTB). that was a very good performance from Younes who has obtained a wild card in the Qatar Open in Doha, starting January 1st 2007. First round opponent: Thomas Johansson and maybe Ljubicic in the 2nd !! Good luck to you Younes.

Re: Younès El Aynaoui's fan thread

He said after his first round win in Doha that he asked for a WC for qualies.
It's too bad, he could have played with no problem if he registered early.
A Sports moroccan website also said that he may obtain the wild card for the main draw, but honestly I think it's too tough to get one.
I hope the organisers will take into account the fact that Younes played great tennis last week in his straight sets victory over Thomas Johansson and offered a good resistence against Ljubicic in the last 16.
And they will certainly remember one of the greatest matches in tennis history: the quarter final of AO 2003 when Roddick beat El Aynaoui 21-19 in the fifth set !!!
Please at least a WC for qualies !!! Please!

Re: Younès El Aynaoui's fan thread

"Marco" Gicquel, Younès and Florent Serra in Dubaï "enjoying an Arabian night"



And Younès on the court :



Nice to see him back at such a level but he was sooo close against Davydenko... But i console myself thinking he kind of "showed the way" to Oli Rochus...

Re: Younès El Aynaoui's fan thread

At 35, Younes El Aynaoui is far from retiring from pro tennis. His determination and motivation made him work and train hard for 5 weeks in Barcelona after his good performance in Doha.
He didn't manage to obtain a WC in Dubai but succeeded in qualifying to the main draw after good wins against Marco Chiudinelli 6/1 6/4 and George Bastl 6/4 6/4. The main draw didn't allow Younes to win more matches because he simply faced the world's n° 4 Nikolay Davydenko in R1.
However, Younes demonstrated great tennis and fighting spirit and was very close to create a major upset. After 2h55m Davydenko finally prevailed in three extremely tough sets: 6/7 7/5 7/5.
Well done Younes! Keep working hard, you deserve to be at least in the Top 50.
Starting on march 5th, Younes is playing the Morocco F1 Future in Oujda where he's the top seed.
Then, he is supposed to participate in the Bogota Challenger and come back to Morocco to play two challengers and the ATP event in Casablanca.
Good luck Younes! :boune:

Re: Younès El Aynaoui's fan thread

Well, as predicted, Younes El Aynaoui destroyed everybody in the Morocco F1 in OUJDA. Here are his scores:
R1: El Aynaoui def. Mezzour: 6-2 6-2
R2: El Aynaoui def. Maamoun: 6-3 6-4
1/4: El Aynaoui def. Decoud: 6-1 6-2
1/2: El Aynaoui def. Gonzalez Maximo: 6-3 6-4
F: El Aynaoui def. Crivoi: 6-0 6-3.
Very impressive
Younes opted not to play in Bogota next week but prefers to prepare for 3 weeks for the Casablanca challenger (75000$), Marrakech (100000$) and the Casablanca ATP Event.
No doubt he's going to win a lot of points !!

Re: Younès El Aynaoui's fan thread

Younes played the Barletta challenger this week, winning his 1st round match against an unknown italian player 7-6 6-4 before losing surprisingly in the 2nd against Ventura 6-4 6-4. But that's just part of the preparation, Younes is in the Napoli Challenger next week ($100.000).
Good luck Younes! I hope he wins this challenger to improve considerably his rankings.
