Ok, thanks, I didn't know this. In German TV Becker is doing commentary most of the time, not Stich – which is really annoying because Becker has nothing special to say, no insider infos at all, he only speaks of himself and just praises Federer from time to time.

Yes, it's probably a kind of physiotherapy center, nermo. Neely could explain it much better than I can.

Re: Where Are They Now?

Stich has a very analytical brain and is prepared to be frank and doesn't have an ego like Becker, which is even bigger than his serve.

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".

Re: Where Are They Now?

What about Kafelnikow? Did he open his own bookmaking company? Or did he lose everything in the cassino, so now he doesn't have money to start his business?
And Rios? Only getting divorced time and again?

I miss them both on tour like hell.

I just mentioned Kafelnikov and Medvedev recently what they are doing.

Rios just got married and is enjoying the party life and was doing on court interviews in Viña del Mar.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

And that's why I liked Stich better.

Stich finished school and did his military service, then again Becker couldn't exactly do that.

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".

Re: Where Are They Now?

I still remember the days when Muster was 100kg and living in Australia, drinking every night and smoking.

He got cleaned out in the divorce and now is back in Austria, trying to open an academy in Graz, but not finding it easy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I decided to bump this today and there have been many responses for which I am happy to see.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Where Are They Now?

Wilander is doing commentary, playing on the seniors tour, he owns Global Caps a company with Pernfors and Jesper Parnevik and has a foundation to help kids with the skin condition that his son has, plus being the Swedish Davis Cup captain.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Where Are They Now?

Yes Sigma , Stich was a good person..may be better than Becker , but ..may be Becker's achievements in tennis made him under the spotlights for a longer time much more that it did to Stich..and this can change some ppl attitudes ..though not an accepted excuse..but the fact that Stich 's way of thinking is very much respected and admirable...
