With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->

Re: Kafelnikov to become pro-Golfer

Yeah, I heard that he and Pete Sampras are going to start a golf group.

They've been talking with ex-Hingis boyfriend Garcia

Re: Kafelnikov to become pro-Golfer

He always liked to play golf and so does Tim Henman. They seem to be the best at golf of all tennis players. I'm just glad he does things he like now he's retired. Everyone always said he couldn't live without tennis

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Kafelnikov to become pro-Golfer

I know Ivan Lendl did the same and didn't have much fortune, I heard about hsi first pro tournament where he missed the cut and didn't hear again.

It would be great If Kafelnikov does well and qualified for a major golf tournie at some point, that would so impressive

Re: Kafelnikov to become pro-Golfer

Kafelnikov is entering an amateur golf tournament to see who's the best amateur golfer in Russia. There was nothing in the article about him becoming a pro, and he still hasn't officially retired from tennis. Maybe some day.

Re: Kafelnikov to become pro-Golfer

Its very feesable though and would be great if it happened...two footballers here retired and became pro golfers and I said Lendl did too, not sure if Kafelnikov plays off a handicap or if he does...what it is....if he plays off scratch, he's well on the way, he wouldn't have problem with sponsorship.

Re: Kafelnikov to become pro-Golfer

cool kaf! i remember at the aussie open in 01 he kicked up a big fuss about tennis prize money compared to golf....maybe thats yevgeny's new agenda

i think henman has a charity golf event as well, in november/december, so i hope kaf plays there too (so henman can finally beat him for once!)
