Well, there's a lot of work to do for Younes. Judging from his performance today against Grosjean, he played well, but on many time he looked way too slow and immobile; once he was made run out wide of the court, you could count on the he would not make it back to the middle in time for the next shot. But maybe I have yet to change my thinking when I'm watching matches of his, because it's the first time since long time I've seen Younes playing and I believe that I'm still used to the "old" Younes ;) Now, lots of time passed, he became much older and has had a series of lots of injuries behind him.

What a treat it would be for not only his fans, but tennis as a sport to have him climb the rankings again, hopefully his Australian Open goes decent ( he is playing ? ) and the rest will fall into place for itself.

Also, if he is on then he is a threat in Doha to almost anybody, for sure.

Goodluck to him. The closer he gets to it the better.

All you need is Gunther Parsche at your side + a knife and close proximity to the top players and you're sorted :yeah:!

I never stoped believieng in Younès' abilities to come back. Remember he made it to Top 50 in 1993 then lost his tennis to become 200 or 250. Started a first comeback in the summer of 1995 and became 46 after his final loss in Doha in January 1996 against Korda. Then injured badly his ankle the following week in Jakarta in the final against Schalken. Then completely disappeared and became 600 in the world. Then the unbelievable story began: missed nearly from 1996 to June 1998 !!!! when he started a second huge comeback winning a lot of challengers on clay and becoming the great Younès we all know from 1999 to 2003 with a best entry ranking of 14 in 2000 and 2003 and a leading position in the race after his win in Doha in 2002!!! Then the tremendous performances of two 1/4 finals in grand slams in 2003 in the Aus Open and the Us Open and the fabulous and heroic match against Roddick. We all remember Younès's match point at 12-11 in the 5th and finally the win of Roddick 21-19!!!!! Then another serious injury after his 1/2 finals at TMS Madrid in October throwing him back to number 600 in the world !!!!! This time Younès is 33 and nearly 34 years old, did almost nothing during 2 years in 2004 and 2005 except a huge surprise in TMS Montreal beating F.Lopez in round 1 and a very promising 1/2 final in the challenger of Ukraine in November 2005 beating Hanescu in straight sets in the 1/4. Well I sincerely think this is another formidable comeback starting at the start of 2006. Younes is 228 and just played a great match to beat Sebastien Grosjean in round 1 in Doha. He's 34 and still gives it all. Congratulations Younès. Nobody came back 3 times except maybe Agassi (I'm not sure: I think he came back only 2 times!!!). I hope Younès will have a great year with decent performances. Remember 48 at the end of 1993 then 250 then 46 in the start of 1996 then 600 then 14 in 2000 and 2003, then 600 in 2005 and now 228. I am delighted Younès.

Younes isn't playing the AO, unless he gets a WC.

Looks like y'all have to cancel the party then huh?... :) It's nice to see him back really... but no. 1. I don't think so.

LOL at the title of the thread.

I wonder how a guy without a backhand shall win a slam ;) Nice guy though, definitely, they should hand out a wildcard, might be his last season on the circuit :sad:
