Here's a bright young kid to watch out for - 18 yrs old (youngest player remaining in men's draw), saved two match points yesterday against Seppi, already with wins over Davydenko and Moya, and he has a "famous" tennis cousin.

Korolev impresses on debut
By Mark Hodgkinson
There are probably not many emerging racket-swingers who could cope with the pressures of having Anna Kournikova, the world's leading tennis celebrity, as their cousin. But Evgeny Korolev, 18, indicated at Roland Garros yesterday that the family connections will not trouble him and he made an impressive first appearance at the grand slams.
Having qualified for the main draw, Korolev demonstrated why he is considered such a promising new face on the scene. He continued his run by coming back from trailing by two sets to one for a 6-4, 2-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 defeat of Italian Andreas Seppi.
The Russian teenager will now meet Argentina's Gaston Gaudio, the 2004 French Open champion, in the second round.
"I don't find it difficult having Anna as my cousin," Korolev said, "even though she did so well in the sport. There's no more pressure on me because women's tennis is so different to men's tennis. You can't compare.
"She's just my cousin, and when we speak on the phone, we speak about normal things. We don't really talk about tennis too much.
"I never used to watch women's tennis, so I never saw Anna playing on television. I just used to watch men's tennis the whole time, especially Pete Sampras. When I play I don't have any fear on the court.
"Maybe some people have criticised Anna for spending too much time on the sponsorships, but that's not my business. I just know that she was the first really famous Russian tennis player. Perhaps I should talk to Anna about how to get some good sponsorship deals."
