What's happened to Korolev and Zverev ?

I tried to have some news in their forums and had no answer, then I try here.

Both players were promising when they were young, but had a horrible year 2011 tennis-wise (both out of top-200) after already a very bad year 2010.

Zverev has started playing challenger qualies in the end of last year, managed to reach Geneva challenger final. But lost in Doha qualies to Lacko and now is in no entry-list for january.

Korolev played and lost a lot in challengers in the first half of last year then completely stopped playing after summer. He's only a far alternate in the entry-list of Kazan challenger this month.

It seems that he's now coached by Gabriel Markus ( http://gabrielmarkus.blogspot.com/20...idente-de.html ) and also that he married in july last year.

Does anybody know what's happened to them and what are their plans now ?

useless old guy

2 players with talent but no brain.
Korolev has never had any tactic (Chardy has the same kind of problem).
Zverev is one of the worst mental midget around. Too bad because I actually enjoy a lot his game.

Korolev was too good looking to be playing tennis.

Zverev was too depressed to be playing tennis full-time.

Re: What's happened to Korolev and Zverev ?

Korolev had knee problems since boyhood (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%...latter_disease), he fighted with it many years, but it seems he had been defeated finally
Korolev has unofficial site in Russian (http://evgenykorolev.net/), unfortunately it hasn't upgraded last two years...
Also he acted as a model and face of some cosmetics companies in Russia last years (http://photo-men.com/tennisist-evgenij-korolev-foto)

Korolev may have the biggest forehand in the game, the reply you quoted was a sarcastic answer to highlight the fact he was probably the dumbest player on tour.

Zverev had some nice results in 2009 & played good at Autumn of 2010, but totally fell apart in 2011. Korolev never reached the highs of Zverev, but also had some nice results in 2008/2009 and got some results on Challenger Tour in 2010/2011

Benoît Paire, Edouard Roger-Vasselin,Nicolas Mahut, Jeremy Chardy, Aljaz Bedene, Florian Mayer, Tommy Robredo, Evgeny Korolev, Albert Ramos, Guillaume Rufin

huh? Korolev's career high is 46 to Zverev's 45, both have been in ATP final, and Korolev has 5 challenger titles while Zverev - only 4

so pretty equal careers..
