Wayne Ferreira ?

I often watched young Wayne , way back , when he was still a talented teenager , coached in Joey'z southern suburbs by Willem Coetzee ;
later , he became a top contender worldwide ( well : almost ) ;
I last saw him in Dubai Open , 1997 - he was well-liked and kindly posed with many a visitor .
Would anyone know about Wayne : where is he now , what he might be doing etc ?

He really did just fade from the scene, I don't even find any reference of him playing on the seniors tour?

yeppers, the SA tennis scene has gone quiet for a while

we have a $25 000 Tennis tourney coming up in Ystad aimed at women

its points based and this means only players with low points can play and as things stand it therefore is aimed at 14 - 18 year olds as they are likely to be the ones with the points

imagine a $25 000 purse for such an age

AND you never mentioned one Robin Soderling ( for whom 25K$ would be a cheap joke , just now ? )

Soderling has been highly rated and is so so injury prone

he has the talent to win but is inconsistent due to injuries

NOT "my" Safina , I was all for beautiful Ana ( but she messed up again , par for the course , both : on the courts and with that Verdasco ) ;
no idea what happens in men's semis , the game IMHO is ruined by far too much play ( too many high-paying , high-points tournaments ) so : one never knows which player is the next to get injured , over-tired , frustrated or just plain disinterested , with the whole circus !
My 2 EUrocents' worth , this Friday a.m. - and the rest doesn't look too good , either ...

Yebo !
Good man , Robin ( the only other Robin I ever met , was a remarkable mr. Grant of Bristol and Surrey ...and that was in happy 80's in Joeyz : I also liked him to bits - but that one is said to be living in the States nowadays , more's the pity ! )
I hope this R.S. wins on Sunday ;
mind you , I might miss some of the action , due to a high-profile braai ,
in deepest Flaanders ....
