Chakvetadze, Andreev Best Tennis Players of Russia 2007

Igor Andreev and Anna Chakvetadze were honored yesterday as the best tennis players of Russia in 2007. Russia’s Fed Cup has won “The Team of the Year” award.

Chakvetadze enjoyed a breakthrough year in 2007, ended the season at No 7 in the world and managed to win four titles. As to Andreev, I am not sure why he was chosen. He didn’t win a single title this year, however has been a very valuable player for Russia’s Davis Cup team. reports that Andreev received the award and didn’t even stay for the post-ceremony party. He hurried to watch the football (soccer for my US readers) game between Russia and Israel.

    Hey Igor
    I reckon you had to go to that award presentation because they choose you. I would want to go home and watch football also.
    I just watched you play a match against Mardy Fish in Rome (April 27 and 28, 2009) and couldn’t believe Mardy won.
    Do you have an email address where I can contact you? I really believe in your tennis playing and know someday you will win an Open.
    All the best, Susan
    Please forward this message to Igor.
