Re: Evgueni KOROLEV - future of Russian tennis

Korolev impresses on debut
By Mark Hodgkinson
(Filed: 30/05/2006)

There are probably not many emerging racket-swingers who could cope with the pressures of having Anna Kournikova, the world's leading tennis celebrity, as their cousin. But Evgeny Korolev, 18, indicated at Roland Garros yesterday that the family connections will not trouble him and he made an impressive first appearance at the grand slams.

Having qualified for the main draw, Korolev demonstrated why he is considered such a promising new face on the scene. He continued his run by coming back from trailing by two sets to one for a 6-4, 2-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 defeat of Italian Andreas Seppi.

The Russian teenager will now meet Argentina's Gaston Gaudio, the 2004 French Open champion, in the second round.

"I don't find it difficult having Anna as my cousin," Korolev said, "even though she did so well in the sport. There's no more pressure on me because women's tennis is so different to men's tennis. You can't compare.

"She's just my cousin, and when we speak on the phone, we speak about normal things. We don't really talk about tennis too much.

"I never used to watch women's tennis, so I never saw Anna playing on television. I just used to watch men's tennis the whole time, especially Pete Sampras. When I play I don't have any fear on the court.

"Maybe some people have criticised Anna for spending too much time on the sponsorships, but that's not my business. I just know that she was the first really famous Russian tennis player. Perhaps I should talk to Anna about how to get some good sponsorship deals."

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: Evgueni KOROLEV - future of Russian tennis

Teenagers turn heads in Parisian talent show
From Neil Harman, Tennis Correspondent in Paris

Evgeny Korolev will be turning heads and not because he is a distant cousin of Anna Kournikova, who made a habit of that herself.

There is something very Kafelnikov about Korolev, and Yevgeny of that ilk became the world No 1 and lifted this championship ten years ago before setting out on a new career as a poker player. Korolev has the same square face — although Kafelnikov’s has filled out enormously since he became a former player — blond hair and inquisitive eyes as his compatriot and, at 18, is blessed with all the requisite athletic attributes.

Yesterday, when clouds scudded and branches bent, Korolev kept his nerve strong and senses sharp to come from two sets to one down and defeat Andreas Seppi, of Italy, 6-3, 3-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1. Already this spring he has defeated Carlos Moyà, the champion at Roland Garros in 1998, on his native Spanish clay.

Korolev is at present based in Germany, though he is looking at whether he should move to Saddlebrook in Florida, where tennis courts and sunshine are as common as fresh running water. A stopover in Roehampton, the home of the near-completed LTA National Tennis Centre, has not been contemplated, but bids should be placed because if Britain’s teenagers are to appreciate the levels required to succeed, they should be brushing shoulders with players of Korolev’s physical and mental disposition.

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

I dont think its a bad comperasion. Kafelnikov was a great player.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

It's too soon for doing it, IMHO.

Re: Evgueni KOROLEV - future of Russian tennis

Well it could have been a lot worse. Yes everyone is special but good players get compared to past players a lot and it's often flattering.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

We do I asked him out there to win Aachen only because I could compare him to Djokovic who won Aachen the year before. Poor Zhenya compared and compared... but he'll be always compared to Kournikova, and thanks for the article about it

I guess I won't be online during his match against Gaudio, but wishing him lots of luck

I will burn
And you will die...
