Re: Evgueni KOROLEV - future of Russian tennis
Messrs Ferrero, Hrbaty, Almagro and Simon will have to be on their guard, since one or two bandits are emerging from the qualifiers, and none more so than Evgeny Korolev. The 18-year-old Russian, who reached the quarter-finals of the Open 13 in Marseilles at the expense of his compatriot Nikolay Davydenko earlier this year, has been busy proving this week that he is equally at home on clay. He is currently ranked 150th in the world and seems to have taken a liking to France, having won youth tournaments in Angers and Mulhouse last season.
Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.
