Thomas Behrend, one of the true legends of the game, will retire next week after the Aachen challenger. I've only found this short notice so far, but it comes from a reliable source. Wonder with whom Kas will team up now?

Anyway, happy retirement Thomas! :)


"Tomas Behrend wird nach 16 Jahren seine Tenniskarriere in der kommenden Woche beim Challenger-Turnier in Aachen beenden. Der 32-Jährige tritt gemeinsam mit Christopher Kas im Doppel an. Der in Brasilien geborene Behrend hatte im September 2003 bei der 2:3-Niederlage des deutschen Teams gegen Weißrussland sein einziges Daviscup-Einzel bestritten und war mehrmals beim Arag World Team Cup in Düsseldorf für Deutschland am Start. Auf der ATP-Tour gewann der Sandplatz-Spezialist drei Doppel-Konkurrenzen."

Behrend was a good player in tight situations.
One of his best wins against Ferrero in Palermo-QF 2005: Ferrero wasted three match points on serve at 5:3 in the second set and 4:0 lead in the third set :drool: Behrend had won 6-7(2) 7-6(4) 7-5 and reached first and last semifinal of an ATP tournament.

Henman, Gimel ... they are dropping away fast :sad:

One of Porto Alegre's finest with Glenn Mirnyi ;)

a pity that he never won that elusive doubles title having lost in another final last week in Vienna

happy retirement Tomas!
