Rogier Wassen Retires

Not sure if many people care, but the Dutch doubles specialist has called it quits. Given that he is 35 and has slid down the rankings quite a bit (#146), I think it is a sensible decision.

Wassen won five titles in his career:

2010 Metz (with Brown)
2008 Amersfoort (with Cermak)
2007 's Hertogenbosch (with Coetzee)
2007 Auckland (with Coetzee)
2006 Auckland (with Pavel)

Pathetic guy, will only be remembered for having the gayest serve of all time.

Very disrespectful post, especially given that he had to change his serve motion due to injury. It's great he actually managed to have a career despite physical problems.

I was never a fan of Wassen - don't find him particularly exciting nor talented - but he has had a decent career.

Obviously anyone who makes a living out of playing tennis is awesome, but someone with a 136-188 record isn't really thread worthy.
