I heard that Igor didn't play in Madrid because his injury...which needs an operation and which will keep him away from the tennis courts till the end of the year. :( I don't remember where i read that but...i will look and hope i will post it.

The reporters in Moscow said he was thinking whether to have an operation or not. I'll try to find info too about if he's made the decision or not. He's played awesome despite the dodgy knee. :yeah:

I am really sorry that i couldn't find the article about Igor ! :( Well...all i know is that he got that bandadge during the Romanian Open cauz...when i saw him sunday (11.09) he was OK and the next day at practice he got the bandadge and could barely move. I heard him talkin 2 his coach about the possibility to retire..but he didn't and he got all the way to the final which...by the way.. i hope he wil win next year.

During his post-final Kremlin Cup interview he was asked about his plans until the end of the year and he said he was going to stay in Moscow for medical check-ups because they have to determine how bad the knee is and whether surgery is necessary. After all the medical examinations are done, Igor and his medical and sports team will come to a decision on what to do next.

Depending on that decision, we will either see more of him this year or not

Igor Andreev Wins Through His Knee
// The Kremlin Cup
Igor Andreev has claimed the Kremlin Cup working a miracle in the match against Nicholas Kiefer. French Mary Pierce won the womenís title in the game against Francesca Schiavone.
Igor Andreev has remained a mystery until this Kremlin Cup, though he made a good show of his tennis here two years ago, has played quite steadily in singles and in the national team since. Even in spite of the two events he won this year, in Valencia and Palermo, stakes were against him.

Probably, this was because the Russian audience, giving the credit to Igorís recent progress, laid more hopes on Nikolay Davydenko and Mikhail Yuzhny. But the two leaders of the national team blundered. In contrast, Igor Andreev, overcame Philipp Kohlschreiber, defeated the reputed Arnaud Clement (surprisingly simply), then crushed Daniele Bracciali, famous for his killing serve, and finally prevailed over Dmitry Tursunov in a tough match to make it to the main draw. Experts unanimously noted that Igorís game has become much more mature. Technique faults, which earlier hindered him, were gone. The Russian felt equally confident in every element of the game. So, he played more confidently, and he did not get afraid at the late stages of the tournament. Even though he had lost a lot, he retained an ability to be ably to play in a relaxed manner and risky when he needed to. Igor Andreev displayed his best qualities in yesterdayís game against Nicholas Kiefer. He had occasions to do it, especially, in the will to win.

It seemed that Andreev should win the beginning of the match. He was a bit faster than Kiefer, a bit more precise and was not afraid to take a risk, which helped him to break and go ahead 4-2. Yet, the situation changed dramatically then, and the German took the lead. Why? Supposedly, there are two main reasons. First, Kiefer was fresher before the game than Andreev, who had to play a lengthy exhausting match against Tursunov on Saturday. The second reason was the knee injury that showed itself later. But until that moment came, Kiefer took two games on Andreevís serve in response to the Russianís two breaks and won the first set.

We have to hand it to the German: he played some eight games at the highest level. We are lucky that that swift rise in his game proved to be not long and soon halted, though it occurred only when he was leading in the second set 4-0. I must admit, it seemed then that everything was last, and the Kremlin Cup would soon go to the German. More to it, so many points are rarely won back in menís tennis. Besides that, Igor Andreev twisted his bandaged leg and just crushed on the court. All the audience could do was to despondently watch a doctor concocting with the leg of the Russian player, and wonder if Andreev could continue the game, and if so, how much he still had.

More than enough, as we learnt. Igor Andreev stormed back when there was nowhere to go back to, in the best traditions of the Russian heroism. The Russian, who seemingly got the second wind, won four games in a row and practically dragged out the set to the tie-break where he crushed Nicholas Kiefer, down and out, even despite an obvious refereeís mistake.

The German evidently did not feel like losing at the finals of the Kremlin Cup again (he was beaten by Evgeny Kafelnikov four years ago) and tried to get out of the psychological pit Igor Andreev had sent him to. No use. Andreev finally broke down Kieferís resistance at the beginning of the third set when he took a game on the Germanís serve, won all his games and went ahead 3-1. Naturally, the German was unable to bridge this gap. But the Russian, as if trying to secure himself against any troubles, sealed the victory on the rivalís serve and put an end to the match by a superb smash. Afterwards, he collapsed on the court overwhelmed with emotions. We can understand what he was feeling at that moment. Of course, the Kremlin Cup is not a Grand Slam tournament, nor is it a Masters event (the menís part of the competition), but it is a very special place for every Russian tennis player. All the more for those, who first got here as ball-boys, dreaming one day to hold the Kremlin Cup over their heads. Andreev did it. The childhood dream has come true, as he said.

he didn't write in kirilic?why?why do u think that makes him be igor?

Because..maybe...he is in Spain and he doesn't have a keyboard with kirilic characters there so he wrote with latin ( normal characters). that is one of the clues.:D

Mara_M
11-24-2005, 11:21 PM
he is not in spain now as far as i know..he is still in moscow:p!and i think he can write with russian characters everywhere si he knows how to turn it on;)!
