Ask Andrei: Questions and Answers

Question: Andrei, I will never forget the first time I saw you pay tennis here in Perth ( Australia) at the Hopman Cup. You had a match against Michael stich and you played some of the most awsome tennis I had ever seen. I will never forget how you took the time to talk to people and you even gave a ball boy your Tennis trainers, he was very happy. I would like to say you have been a great role model for all to follow Andrei, someone to look up to, well done mate!!!!! I have a two Questions for you Andrei, what was your most memorable match ? for me it was the one you played against Boris Becker at Wimbledon and lost in the Fifth - you should have one that one and maybe you could have gone on to win Wimbledon that year. Secondly you stopped coming to the hopman cup why was that ? Andrei thankyou, all the best for the future best Regards Richard Place.

Answer:Thank you, Richard, for such a nice words! It really means a lot to me! For your first question, yes, you right, giving ALL the circumstences together, the match against Becker on court 1, at Wibledon, was the most memorable. For the second part, I dont remember what were the reasons for not coming to Hopman Cup... because up till now I still think its the best stop on both tours. I actually miss The Hopman Cup.
