OK I am well aware of the fact that 90% of the posters here have never heard of the Slovakian tennis player Jan Kroslak. But I would like to ask that other 10% whether they have any update on him. He seems to have just disappeared :(

I've actually heard of one of your obscure players! :) Kroslak was never at the top of the game but he was a bit of a force in the late 90's. How do i know? Henman lost to him in every meeting they had! :( He hasn't been around since and i think he has retired CooCoo.

Thanks SP. I don't know what is wrong with him though.. He still beat Köllerer and Chiudinelli and those are not bad players :(

Jan asked me for change at the tournament of Rosmalen :) I managed to get his autograph (though I did not have the change :lol: ) but I couldn't make a picture anymore :(

I'm not complaining CooCoo - you learn a lot from hearing about players that you have never heard of before - that is how you learn! Keep it up! :)

OK :lol:

Tell me what players out of my sig you don't know, so I can make a thread about them ;) :crazy:

M. Fyrstenberg and M. Matkowski - never heard of them ever!!!

Don't know a lot but have heard of: L. Friedl, A. Kuznetsov, J-C. Scherrer and P. Vizner.

Any info would be gratefully received! Cheers! :)

OK Here we go:

Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski:

Two Polish players that mainly focus on their doubles careers. It is only occasionally that they play singles (usually qualifying). They are actually quite a good team and I think both are in the Top 50 of doubles players :)

Mariusz Fyrstenberg (Taken by me):

Marcin Matkowski:

Leos Friedl:

A Czech doubles player. Very timid person, but very nice. I have a picture of him on my computer, but haven't uploaded it so can't give you a link. Won in Kitzbühel and Sopot this year, both are good tourneys. I think he reached the Wimbledon mixed final too.. But am not too sure.

Alex Kuznetsov:

An American junior who is not related to Sveta ;) A promising player, again a very timid guy it appears, but with a good game. You'll hear more of him soon. Saw him at Wimbledon. Didn't make a picture though..

Pavel Vizner:

A bit surprised you have never heard of him :o He has been around for ages in the doubles field. Like a lot of doubles specialists, he hails from the Czech Republic. He's got a daughter too :) Very good player, great to watch. Should have a pic somewhere..

Jean-Claude Scherrer:

A Swiss player. http://www.jcscherrer.com Extremely friendly! :) Has got some potential, but I don't see him reaching Top 50 :(

OK Hope that update helped :)
