(sorry if this has been posted)

Tarpischev told so in his Monday's interview with the Russian sports daily "Sport-Express".

I didn't realise you can "buy" a player ...

Russians should start getting worried. I mean, one thing is journeymen like Schukin being bought, but they're now buying the best Russian youngsters - Golubev, Kuku and now Korolev. Will they buy Donskoy and Belyaev too? :lol:

Doesn't Kazakhstan have more top 200 male players than Russia now? :tape:

Kazakhstan obviously offered him a great deal or he wouldn't have done it. Russia has a lot of top players so maybe Korolev isn't their priority, but by going to Kazakhstan, he will receive more individual attention. can't blame Korolev for doing what he feels is best for his career :shrug: of course he'll take the money too :lol: :p

Why are they doing this? Do they have one of those mad cult of personality presidents with a tennis obsession and lamentable impatience when it comes to home grown talent?

Tarpischev has been whining for years about the lack of money in the federation. Tennis is not a priority like football or hockey. So maybe Kazakhstan didn't have to offer that much really. By the way Tarpi says he is disappointed, but doesn't blame Zhenya, seems like he had plans for Korolev.

There are really not that many guys left to play DC now. Davydenko, Youzhny, injured Tursunov, Andreev in disgusting form, Kunitsyn... Andrey Kuznetsov maybe, in a few years, if he doesn't switch to KZ as well, as he also has had financial difficulties...
Bring Safin and Kafelnikov out of retirement, maybe :o

But what i don't understand is Korolev is actually well of financially :mad:

The funds gained will also allow him to buy a brand new mansion within the west of Russia which he recently hinted upon within his special appearance of Krjiune Daily.

Disgraceful stuff from the Kazakh federation, and I'm disgusted by the heads of the Russian Tennis Federation. Andrey Kuznetsov,Believ and Donskoy are our future now and they need to be supported. All the juniors need to be supported. If i see them in Kazakh colours I'll be raging :angel: I support Kudravytsev's statements that these players are traitors :devil:

Tennis has always been a Moscow thing. But now the country is being run by Saint-Petersburg's gang, and they don't care about any sport that does not translate into their "national project" paradigm. So, no surprise here.
