Re: Where is Alex Kuznetsov?

I kind of forgot about this kid (and apparently everyone else around here did too), probably because he stopped playing well about 2 years ago. It's a shame he couldn't build upon the success he had in late 2006 and early 2007, as he had climbed to 158 in the world by age 20. Unfortunately, his ranking has slipped now to 517 (ouch).

Anyways, he is in the semifinals of the Savannah challenger and has posted wins over Tigran Martirosyan, Carsten Ball, and even Isner! Next up is Kevin Kim. I'm not expecting him to be a top pro or anything, but he's still young and he could still have a decent career. Obviously, these types of wins will boost his confidence. Regardless, he's going to have to improve his mental game and consistency. Good luck Alex!

Thanks for the update. I was almost sure he would crack the top 90 after his 2nd round result at the Aussie Open a few years ago. Like you I wish him well and perhaps he can return to his old form and make a run tot he top 100.

Re: Where is Alex Kuznetsov?

This really has been a great tournament for him. He just beat the #1 seed Kim in a third set tiebreak. In the final he faces Russell. It will be tough, since Russell is playing well and likes clay, but Kuznetsov obviously seems to be playing too.

Re: Where is Alex Kuznetsov?

Well he ended up losing in three. Nevertheless, he's got a very strong argument for receiving a WC to the USO.
