"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".
Yeah I was surprised by his run this year, he is pawning every opponent and definetely playing a top 150 game recently. If he is going to play atp, I have no idea. He seems to have a strong serve and a nice baseline game, and is for sure way superior a lot of players ranked around 200-300, like Rodrigues, Ludovic, Eysseric..even Rochette or Gensse, perhaps.
They say that Kenny decided to become a pro player only 2 years ago. The problem was that he didn't have any attacking shot / slice / net rush in his game, and that he was only defending (quite good regardind his size). Now he's a powerful player, and he aims to play qualifications of slams in the next two years.

Nice job, gotta feel that with Kenny's serve he is going up in a hurry....
btw, considering he also has finals points of a 15k+h future that will be added on tonight he will add 130 points to his ranking.
