Ram Ready For Life Beyond The Court

Obrazek
Andy Ram is looking forward to spending time with his young family.

Five days ago, 200 people left a Tel Aviv cinema in tears. But it wasn’t as a reaction to a box office flop.

Andy Ram had just provided his family and friends an insight into his life as a professional tennis player over the past two years… and he had announced his intention to retire.

There will be no more ATP World Tour or Grand Slam play. But in four months’ time, Ram’s emotions will reach a crescendo when a chapter in his life, for which he has dedicated 17 years, will end.

On 13 September, he will walk onto court with his great friend, Jonathan Erlich, hoping that his final bow to professional tennis — as part of ‘AndiYoni’ — will reward Israel with a place in the 2015 Davis Cup World Group.

Speaking at his house in Tel Aviv, 34-year-old Ram told ATPWorldTour.com, “It’s the right time. My body is not what it was prior to hip surgery in September 2012. I am proud of what I have achieved, but I never wanted to play until I was 40 – like some players.

“Family is the most important thing to me. I want to experience life with my wife, Shiri, and my two children, together. Not over a phone, as has happened too much over the past 17 years. I’ve missed so much, as I have travelled for up to eight months of the year.”

Ram insists his life has been blessed.

Having started playing tennis aged five, he received inspiration from his late father, Ami, “who drove me to every tournament in Israel growing up”; his mother, Diana, “one of Israel’s leading dental specialists for children”, his wife, "an angel", and Ronen Moralli, his coach, “who treated me like a son and taught me about life on and off the court”.

His 20-year friendship with Erlich, with whom he won 16 of his 19 doubles titles – including three ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crowns, gave him some of the great high points in his life.

“The reception we received after capturing the 2008 Australian Open title [d. Clement-Llodra] and our partnership in Davis Cup ties, particularly when Israel reached the semi-finals [in 2009], helped to unite and attract thousands to the sport,” Ram explained.

“The feeling of winning a Grand Slam is a one off. Holding the trophy aloft in front of a packed stadium and receiving appreciation is difficult to describe. Upon our return to Tel Aviv, the Minister of Sport, government officials, 150 reporters and thousands of fans greeted us at the airport. We were guests at the home of President Shimon Peres. It was crazy.”

Ram’s historic mixed doubles successes with Vera Zvonareva at 2006 Wimbledon and Nathalie Dechy at 2007 Roland Garros, will also live long in the memory. “Bringing home a Grand Slam title to this country is massive,” said Ram, who ranked a career-high No. 5 in the Emirates ATP Doubles Rankings. “I don’t think Israelis understand how hard it is.”

Erlich, who is still competing aged 37, paid tribute to Ram, telling ATPWorldTour.com in Madrid, “As a team for 13 years, Andy has been a very important part of my career and a great friend.

“Together, we managed to raise the profile of tennis in Israel to places that it had never been before. I want to thank him for every moment we shared on and off the court.

“Besides being a friend, you have been a part of my family. Not many doubles teams can say that and I think that has always been our strength.”

Just days after Ram’s farewell in September, the ATP World Tour will return to Tel Aviv for the first time since 1996. The news of an ATP World Tour 250 tournament in Israel comes as a welcome surprise to Ram, one of the sport’s big personalities.

“The weather will be perfect and Tel Aviv is one of the world’s greatest cities to party,” he said, with a smile. “I will do anything to help the organisers.” The tennis world will hope he stays involved in the sport.

Rik De Voest has fond memories of Odlum Brown VanOpen in his final pro tennis tournament

Obrazek

Rik De Voest is about to play in his final professional tennis tournament, so of course, this one holds a special place in his heart. However, it’s not just because of his impending retirement or the spectacular scenery. The Odlum Brown VanOpen at Hollyburn Country Club in West Vancouver has had a lasting impact on De Voest’s life. He met his wife, Carolyn, here in 2005. They now have a baby son, born March 4. On the hard court at Hollyburn, De Voest is also a men’s singles champion and a two-time doubles champion. And he’ll have one more go at it before hanging up the racket after this year’s competition, which began with Saturday qualifiers.

After 16 years on the (ATP World Tour), it was toward the end of my career and I decided this would be a special spot for me to finish my career,” said De Voest on Monday morning, prior to his evening match with American qualifier Jason Jung in men’s singles. “It holds so many memories. It’s where my new chapter of life began with my wife and now residing here.”

De Voest defeated Jung in a marathon match later in the evening. A back-and-forth contest in which both players seemed fatigued toward the end, the match lasted two hours and 30 minutes, with De Voest finally emerging victorious in three sets 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4).

De Voest, 34 years of age and a professional tennis player since 1999, now calls Lynn Valley in North Vancouver his home. For him to travel to the Odlum Brown VanOpen, it’s as simple as getting on the freeway, heading west, hanging a right and another right and he’s there.

He was born in Italy and moved to South Africa as a child. But he has his permanent residency card for Canada, and entered the tournament billed as the local guy to watch; there are no other Canadians in the men’s singles draw. His first-ever trip to Vancouver was for the 2005 tournament, where he met Carolyn, an athletic director at Hollyburn and principal of Better Your Best Coaching — an organization that delivers works with athletes, executives and entrepreneurs, according to its Twitter account.

He won the men’s singles event the following year. De Voest gained entry into this year’s competition through a wild card spot.

“The fact that he just lives minutes down the road … this has essentially been his home club for the last five years,” said tournament director Ryan Clark. “He’s as much as a local player you can get.”

Whether it is today or after what would definitely be the perfect Hollywood ending if he were to make it to Sunday’s final, De Voest said he’s already prepared for life beyond tennis. Currently ranked 635th in the world, his career accomplishments include an appearance at Wimbledon and a personal best ranking of 110th in the world in the summer of 2006 — around the time of his first win in Vancouver. It was a dream-come-true for De Voest when he represented South Africa in the Davis Cup, and this year won the Davis Cup Commitment Award. He is only one of four competitors from South Africa to achieve such an award.

To have all the fans and support you get out there, it’s definitely a unique experience,” said De Voest. “It’s definitely one I’ve embraced. I find I always play my best tennis during Davis Cup play, so I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it.”

His time on the professional tours has given him many good memories. Now, it’s time to move onto something else. De Voest is currently studying to attain his real estate licence. “It’s been a while coming. I’ve come to terms knowing this will be my final event,” he said. “But at the same time, I’ve spent my whole childhood and adulthood — pretty much my whole life — involved in tennis. So for it to finally be coming to an end is definitely a new chapter and probably a little bit emotional.”

His decision to move on from pro tennis shouldn’t be confused with giving up. The competitive juices still flow for this particular event. “I want to go out on my terms and play tennis to the best of my ability,” said De Voest. “As long as I go out there and compete hard and finish the way I want to my finish my career.”
