Thomas Enqvist has retired. He decided that after the exhibition tournament in Houston a couple of weeks ago. After all his operations his body can´t take anymore tennis at the high level he wants it to and if he can´t reach the top (because of all the pain) then he rather quits than become a tour journeyman. Always sad when a good player ends his career, 19 titles of which 3 are Masters Series and one GS-final to add to that.
Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
Vad händer nu?
– Jag har levt med tennisen i hela mitt liv så just nu känns det tomt. Kanske vill jag prova något helt nytt eller så vill jag fortsätta inom tennisen, det är svårt att säga innan jag fått lite distans till att jag faktiskt slutat.
What happens now?
"I have lived with tennis my whole life, so now it feels empty. Perhaps, I will do something totally new or continue within tennis, it's difficult to say before I get some perspective that I have really stopped."
“ 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".
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
a great player & even better human being
a great career by any standards

I watched him in his prime, a very unorthdox player that had reasonable success
