Re: Konstantinos Economidis

Found a nice article about him from the AGE

http://www.theage.com.au/news/tennis...988648469.html

At 30, a Greek shows it's never too late

Karen Lyon
January 13, 2008

IN 1996, Konstantinos Economidis travelled to Melbourne for the first time in his bid to qualify for the Australian Open. Yesterday, after eight unsuccessful attempts, the 30-year-old Greek player finally made it to the main draw of the tournament.

Economidis defeated Swiss player Stephane Bohli 5-7, 6-3, 6-2 to win his way into his fourth grand slam tournament. Last year, he had his only win in a grand slam, in the opening round of the French Open, but yesterday was one of the good days on the long journey that is the qualifying circuit. "It is an exciting moment for me to qualify in Australia; it is the first time I have qualified so it means a lot to me," Economidis said yesterday.

This year, he failed to qualify for the Australian Open lead-up tournament in Adelaide but continued on to Melbourne and put three wins together to qualify.

He has never lost his enthusiasm for the Australian Open despite the disappointments. "It is a tournament I am always looking forward to playing. It is the winter in Europe, I have so many friends here and I feel really like I am at home. Throughout the whole years, I have met so many people that I look forward coming back to Australia every year and I enjoy my time, that's why (I come back)," he said.

Economidis will play last year's beaten finalist Fernando Gonzalez in the opening round. But, things could have been worse.

Fellow qualifier Viktor Troicki will find out all about the spotlight tomorrow night when he faces French Open champion Rafael Nadal on the first night. Another qualifier, Lukas Dlouhy, drew Andy Roddick on the first day.

After so many trips to Melbourne, Economidis says he knows the sights well and is looking forward to spending more time on the courts of Melbourne Park than on trips around town. He is hoping to make the best of it by trying to find a partner for the doubles.

"I am trying to convince (Marcos) Baghdatis to play, but I think probably not. He is a guy we can probably get into the draw, but he wants to focus on his singles."

Re: Konstantinos Economidis

hahaha... I know how you feel. I really can't be bothered doing it all, but I am not back at work for almost 2 weeks, so I might as well do something constructive. If I don't do it now, I will be rushing just before AO 2009!
