Re: Where Are They Now?

Thanks for the picture of the ex- Mrs. Skoff
Is it too soon to be asking about the whereabouts of Evgeny Kafelnikov and of medvedev? Medvedev I remember credited his French Open final to being in love with Anke Huber. Quite literally, that's what he said

Re: Where Are They Now?

Jonas Svensson was pretty cool. Unfortunately, I think I fried the part of my brain that remembered some of the details of him and his game, but I do remember that I liked the guy.

Wasn't it Jonas B. Svensson, at least for a while?

Yes, there were 2 Jonas Svensson's on tour at the time and so the cool Swede was Jonas Bengt Svensson, that is what the B stood for.

Fromberg I think it still doing some coaching work with TA, as he is not travelling with Guccione anymore.

Stoltenberg is the head of the National High Performance Academy, which in other words is trying to rebuild Aussie tennis from the slump that it is in.
