Michael Chang, Maria Sharapova and Kei Nishikori

TAG Heuer ambassadors Maria Sharapova and Kei Nishikori challenged each other in front of the boutique on one of the most famous avenues of Paris, the Champs Elysées. Each player took turns trying to hit targets on the boutique’s storefront window with foam balls. The umpire was none other than Michael Chang, Roland Garros winner in 1989, and Nishikori’s coach. Next, the two champions each coached a team of three children with their swing.

Maria Sharapova et Kei Nishikori ont participé à un événement caritatif organisé par leur sponsor TAG Heuer, lundi soir à Paris. Maria et Kei s’affrontaient pour tenter de toucher le plus de cibles collées sur la devanture du magasin. L’arbitre n’était autre que Michael Chang, vainqueur à Roland Garros en 1989 et entraîneur de Nishikori. Les 2 joueurs ont ensuite aidé les enfants à manier leurs raquettes.

Karen Khachanov

Perhaps tired by his marathon match against Quentin Halys the day before, Rudy Coco could not do much to counter Karen Khachanov, who wins in straight sets, 6-1 6-4.

Aged 18, Khachanov trains at the 4Slam tennis academy in Barcelona, with former number 40, Galo Blanco.
He won 2 Futures tournaments last year, in Taipei and Mulhouse, and has 3 victories over top 100 players: Victor Hanescu (then ranked 63 in St Petersburg, 2013), Albert Ramos (72, Moscow 2013) and Janko Tipsarevic (27, Moscow 2013). He also represented his country in Davis Cup, and became Russia’s youngest ever Davis Cup player during Russia’s tie against South Africa in 2013.

After having seen him playing in Moscow in 2013, Yevgeny Kafelnikov predicted his young compatriot would be top 20 at the end of 2015.

Actually ranked 363, he should join the top 200 pretty soon. A player to follow in the years to come.

As for his opponent of the day, Rudy Coco, he’s quite a spectacular player by his playing style first but also by his attitude on court: he talks, and grunts, and talks and shouts, and talks. A charismatic player, he was really nice with the kids after the match.

Peut être fatigué par sa demie finale marathon de la veille, Rudy Coco n’a rien pu faire pour contrer la puissance de Karen Khachanov, qui s’impose en deux sets 6-1 6-4.

Agé de 18 ans, Khachanov s’entraîne à l’académie 4Slam à Barcelone, avec son coach l’ancien top 40, Galo Blanco. Il a remporté 2 Futures l’an dernier (Taipei et Mulhouse), et a déjà 3 victoires contre des joueurs du top 100: Victor Hanescu (alors classé 63è, à St Petersbourg en 2013), Albert Ramos (72, Moscou 2013) et Janko Tipsarevic (27, Moscou 2013). Il a aussi représenté son pays en Coupe davis et est d’ailleurs devenu le plus jeune joueur russe de Coupe Davis de l’histoire lors de la rencontre Russie-Afrique du Sud en 2013.

Après l’avoir vu jouer à Moscou en 2013, Yevgeny Kafelnikov a prédit que son jeune compatriote serait dans le top 20 fin 2015.

Classé 363è mondial, il devrait rapidement faire son entrée dans le top 200. Un joueur à suivre dans les années à venir.

En ce qui concerne son adversaire du jour, Rudy Coco, c’est un joueur spectaculaire tant par son style de jeu que par son attitude sur le court: il parle, il grogne, parle, crie, parle. Un joueur charismatique, très sympa avec ses jeunes fans après la finale.
