Andrew Chesnokov Shot!

Chesnokov shot twice

Russian tennis player Andrei Chesnokov was shot twice on Sunday after a dispute in a Ukrainian restaurant, local media reported. Chesnokov, formerly the world's number nine men's tennis player, was treated in hospital but his life was not in danger, Russian news agencies said.


"The Russian sportsman was relaxing in a restaurant with a friend when, after a disagreement, an unknown man shot him several times with rubber bullets," RIA Novosti news agency quoted a spokesman for the Ukrainian police as saying.

Ukrainian officials were not immediately available for comment on the reports of the shooting, which took place in the early hours of Sunday in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk.

The highlight of Chesnokov's career was in 1989, when he reached the semi-finals of the French Open. He also won seven less well-known singles events.

The 39-year-old retired from the professional tour in 1999, although Russian sports paper Sovietsky Sport reported he had been in Dnipropetrovsk to play in a local tournament.

Chessy goes from "relaxing" to a disagreement (with whom I wonder) to being shot by an unknown man several times.

Used to love to watch him play. When he was on the tour, he was the only male player with a female coach. He'd been with her since he was young. Beautiful serve.

is he ok?

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: Andrew Chesnokov Shot!

Hope Chezzy is alright and I wonder what it was about and he was not playing in the tournament, just happened to be in the city where the challenger was played.

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".
