Re: Evgueni KOROLEV - future of Russian tennis
KOURNIKOVA'S COUSIN:@ Qualifier Evgeny Korolev isn't concerned about the famous footsteps he's following in tennis.
In fact, the 18-year-old Russian prefers not to talk about his cousin, Anna Kournikova. Their mothers are sisters.
"To be honest, I don't really want to talk about it because it takes a lot of time to talk," said Korolev, after losing 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 to 2004 champion Gaston Gaudio in the French Open's second round. "If you want to know something, you can ask her, if possible."
So he's coy with the media, just like his cousin.
The French Open was Korolev's Grand Slam debut; he was the youngest man left in the field.
He's 5-4 at tour-level tournaments, with his best result a round-of-16 finish on clay at Barcelona last month, including a victory over 1998 French Open champion Carlos Moya in the first round.
ooh! he shouldv'e won but whatever.
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.
