YEVGENY KAFELNIKOV talks TENNIS with CRAIG SHAPIRO-URCS041

YEVGENY KAFELNIKOV talks TENNIS with CRAIG SHAPIRO-URCS041

Born and trained in Sochi, Russia, YEVGENY KAFELNIKOV turned pro just as The Soviet Union crumbled. In 1996, at 22 years old and armed with a murderous double-fisted backhand, he won both the French Open singles and doubles titles, making him the last man to ever do so.

In 1999 he had his best year on tour, winning the Australian Open and reaching #1 in the world.

He’s posted wins over Edberg, Becker, Agassi, Sampras, Kuerten and Safin and took home a Gold Medal from the 2000 Olympics. And with Li Na and Mary Pierce, Yevgeny is part of the newest class of inductees at The International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Yevgeny Kafelnikov tells the story of how a poor kid from the Soviet Union became one of the biggest earners in the history of tennis. He explains why he thinks the satellite tour is the best way to hone one’s craft. And he tells us why he thinks NONE of the promising new men on the tour are having any luck getting past the big 3.

Recorded July 21, 2019. Released for Patreon Patrons July 26, 2019. Released to Public August 20, 2019.
