Boring player, but always great to see players staying competitive at that age.

Hope he makes it through the year in the top 200 or 300.

Good luck to him in his final year. He has done exceptionally well to last as long as he has.

Re: Schüttler: 2012 is my last year

Quite surprised he hasn't called it quits already. Will have to play Challengers in 2012 and I'm just not convinced he'll be able to cut the mustard. Might see him throwing in the towel rather early in the year if his ranking keeps sliding.

Quite likely. His results September-November were dreadful.

Re: Schüttler: 2012 is my last year

I think he should've retired after 2011 but meh he is not a bad player to watch so hopefully he'll do well in 2012 even though i doubt it

Re: Schüttler: 2012 is my last year

It was truly painful to watch the AO when he reached the final. He is boring but I admire his ability to make the best of his talent. He even played the WTF.
