Thomas Behrend retires

Thomas Behrend, one of the true legends of the game, will retire next week after the Aachen challenger. I've only found this short notice so far, but it comes from a reliable source. Wonder with whom Kas will team up now?

Anyway, happy retirement Thomas! :)

"Tomas Behrend wird nach 16 Jahren seine Tenniskarriere in der kommenden Woche beim Challenger-Turnier in Aachen beenden. Der 32-Jährige tritt gemeinsam mit Christopher Kas im Doppel an. Der in Brasilien geborene Behrend hatte im September 2003 bei der 2:3-Niederlage des deutschen Teams gegen Weißrussland sein einziges Daviscup-Einzel bestritten und war mehrmals beim Arag World Team Cup in Düsseldorf für Deutschland am Start. Auf der ATP-Tour gewann der Sandplatz-Spezialist drei Doppel-Konkurrenzen.",1518,513823,00.html (just scroll down, it's the last paragraph)

Behrend was a good player in tight situations.
One of his best wins against Ferrero in Palermo-QF 2005: Ferrero wasted three match points on serve at 5:3 in the second set and 4:0 lead in the third set :drool: Behrend had won 6-7(2) 7-6(4) 7-5 and reached first and last semifinal of an ATP tournament.

One of Porto Alegre's finest with Glenn Mirnyi ;)

a pity that he never won that elusive doubles title having lost in another final last week in Vienna

happy retirement Tomas!
