Re: Oldest players to turn pro?

I'm sure Waske was 24 or 25 when he turned pro, so Isner at 22 wasn't too extreme.

Re: Oldest players to turn pro?

Gicquel was 24.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Oldest players to turn pro?

There is also some Czech guy names Rudolf Siwy who I've never heard of before. He's 25 and started playing this year, received a wild card for Indian Wells qualies where he beat Rajeev Ram

Yeah, if I'm not wrong he retired in 2010. He was born in January 1981 and turned pro only in 2006.
