Veterans' Day

While perusing the scores of the various ATP and WTA tournaments around Europe, something very intriguing caught my eye: Namely Marat Safin and Younes El Aynaoui making the quarterfinals at the BMW Open in Munich. I have to tell you something that may be thought of as a crazy statement: Watch out for these two. You can vote here if you want to dispute this even crazier statement: I think Marat Safin will make the top 10 and be comeback player… Continue
