Re: Where Are They Now?

I have an article on Pernfors somewhere when he played in the World Championships for 35+ a couple of years ago.
I also think he is/was some kind of business man, importing baseball caps(I think) to Sweden.

Yes, I forgot about that Micke Pernfors and Mats Wilander besides playing the oldies tour are the co-owners of the company "Global Cap". Which make baseball caps in plenty of national colours and the nation's name is printed in its own language. The other owner is the golfer Jesper Parnevik.

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".

where are these located? in LA? certainly not in Haiti where it should be. here's a pic of Agenor for those who don't know who the heck we're talking about.

i believe that this was from Montreal 2001

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

The last I heard was that Krickstein had moved to Florida, he had a cleaning business which he then sold for a handsome profit and is living the good life.

Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->

Re: Where Are They Now?

Siemerink I have already posted on him he is commentating.

Puerta had a drug ban and is back playing challengers.

Dosedel I am not sure, but I can find out.

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".

oh, I didn't read the thread. I just needed any name as a purpose of coming in here.



Puerta, surprise surprise. Yes, his ranking is very low But he'll always remain my Mariano of choice

He looks pretty thin next to Henri Leconte, though. Henri looks like he's about to have a heart attack.

A cleaning business? I knew he had an exotic fish/aquarium business, which he sold.

He's now director of tennis at the St. Andrews Tenns & Golf Club in the Boca Raton, FL area. St. Andrews has red clay courts, one of the few private clubs in the Florida area that does. Through Aaron's friendship with Brad Gilbert, Roddick was able to practice on those red clay courts last year. However, Aaron was once coached by Dean Goldfine (and married Dean's sister), so Andy might be able to get Aaron to extend a favor again this year.

I should add that Aaron's niece is promising young golfer Morgan Pressel, who competed in a LPGA event as a young teen a few years ago. She's about to accept a golf scholarship to Duke, and will likely turn pro after graduation.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Re: Where Are They Now?

Anybody know whatever happened to Nicholas Kulti?

And what happened to David Wheaton?

I saw David Wheaton on TV at the US Open 2004 standing on the tennis court right before watching the Federer-Agassi classic match. But I'm wondering what he's up to nowadays. His contemporaries have mostly retired too with the exception of Agassi. His ex-girlfriend Mary Joe Fernandez is married with children. Is he married yet? I remember Wheaton's shoving match with Brad Gilbert at what was then the Grand Slam Cup.

Re: Where Are They Now?

Some years ago, I read that Wheaton was running a charitable foundation (his own?) and doing some motivational speaking. Every now and then, I see an article by him in a tennis magazine.



C'mon, Lleyton!

My brother was once in a restaurant in Argentiere, France (near Mt. Blanc) on a ski trip, and he saw Leconte there smoking like a chimney. This was back in his playing days, too.

David Wheaton, haha. You've got to fear the man draped in a American flag bandana.
