Tenis. Były mistrz wraca po jedenastu latach wakacji

Ostatni turniej z cyklu ATP Thomas Muster rozegrał w 1999 roku. Były numer jeden światowego tenisa już wkrótce wróci do gry, mimo że ma za sobą ponad dekadę przerwy i 42 lata na karku.


Muster wygrał turniej Rolanda Garrosa w 1995 roku, dzięki czemu w lutym 1996 objął prowadzenie w męskim rankingu ATP. Trzy lata później Muster zakończył karierę... a przynajmniej tak się wydawało. Tenisista twierdzi, że nigdy oficjalnie nie zrezygnował z tenisa.

Ambitny Austriak chce rywalizować w singlu i deblu niszowego turnieju rozgrywanego w Brunswick (Niemcy). Zapytany o to, dlaczego wraca, odpowiada bardzo zwyczajnie. - W 1999 roku powiedziałem, że wybieram się na wakacje. No to teraz wróciłem z wakacji - powiedział 42-latek.

Muster Returns At ATP Challenger Tour Tournament

Cytuj:
More than 10 years after his last tournament appearance, former ATP World No. 1 Thomas Muster returns to professional tennis this week at the ATP Challenger Tour event in Brunswick, Germany.

The 42-year-old Austrian, who won the 1995 French Open and a total of 44 titles (40 on clay), plays Ireland’s Conor Niland in the first round. He is also playing doubles, partnering German Jaan-Frederik Brunken. Muster last played a tour-level singles match at the 1999 French Open.

Muster, who never officially announced a retirement, said of his return: "At the time all I said was I was going on holiday, so now I'm back from my holiday."

The left-hander said that he hoped to play in more Challenger events. Muster told the Associated Press: “I still love competitive tennis ... I won't set my goals too high but will just play my best tennis and we'll see where it brings me. I want to feel that tournament atmosphere again. With hard work and the right ambition, a lot is possible."

Muster has played on the ATP Champions Tour since 2003. He also captained the Austrian Davis Cup team from 2004-06.

Muster wrócił do rankingu ATP po 10 latach

Thomas Muster wrócił do rankingu ATP po dziesięcioletniej przerwie. W najnowszym notowaniu 42-letni austriacki tenisista, który w czerwcu wznowił profesjonalną karierę, został sklasyfikowany na 988. miejscu.
Muster ma w dorobku siedem punktów. W poprzednim tygodniu zdobył je awansując do drugiej rundy challengera ATP w Lublanie. Wcześniej w czterech turniejach odpadł w pierwszej rundzie.

Były lider światowego rankingu i triumfator wielkoszlemowego Roland Garros w 1995 roku otrzymał tzw. dziką kartę od organizatorów imprezy z cyklu ATP Tour w Wiedniu (23-31 października). Gdyby przyjął zaproszenie, byłby to jego pierwszy występ w tej serii od czerwca 1999 roku.

Thomas Muster: Przede mną dwa lata gry, potem wracam do żony

- Jeszcze jestem młody. W przyszłym sezonie będę mocniejszy - mówi Thomas Muster, lat 43, ex lider rankingu ATP. We wtorek zagrał w premierowym cyklu po jedenastu latach "wakacji".
Przebieg kariery pokazuje, że Austriak ma niezniszczalny charakter. Gdy pytano go dlaczego się tak poświęca dla sportu, odpowiedział: - Ja żyję dla tenisa. W 1989 roku potrącił go pijak za kierownicą, co zmusiło Mustera do poddania się operacji więzadeł w lewym kolanie. Trenował z nogą w gipsie.

Po pięciu tegorocznych występach w turniejach ATP Challenger (jeden wygrany mecz) otrzymał dziką kartę do największej austriackiej imprezy w Wiedniu, przegrywając we wtorek z rodakiem Andreasem Haider-Maurerem. - Wiem, że mogę grać lepiej - mówił. - Publiczność przyjęła mnie lepiej niż oczekiwałem, byli niesamowici - tłumaczył w rozmowie z dziennikiem "Österreich".

- Przede mną jeszcze dobre dwa lata gry, bo wciąż jestem młody. Ale moja żona powiedziała, że jak już będę miał 45 lat, muszę wrócić na stałe do domu - powiedział lider rankingu przez sześć tygodni w 1996 roku. - Chcę pograć w turniejach pierwszego szczebla przez 20-25 tygodni w przyszłym sezonie.

Thomas Muster po raz drugi zakończył tenisowa karierę

Thomas Muster, były lider rankingu tenisistów ATP World Tour, ogłosił w środę, że w październiku zakończy karierę sportową. Drugie pożegnanie 43-letniego Austriaka ma nastąpić podczas halowego turnieju z tego cyklu w Wiedniu (z pulą nagród 650 tys. euro).

Muster, który 2 października będzie obchodził 44. urodziny, jest obecnie 847. na świecie. Dlatego przed własną widownią w Wiedniu wystąpi dzięki "dzikiej karcie" przyznanej przez organizatorów. Wznowił on karierę przed rokiem właśnie w Wiedniu (w październiku 2010 r.), 11 lat po jej zakończeniu.

Zawodnik, który w lutym 1996 roku był liderem rankingu, nie był w stanie ostatnio skutecznie rywalizować z młodszymi o ponad dwie dekady rywalami. W turniejach ATP Tour poniósł dwie porażki w dwóch meczach. W tym roku przegrał 12 meczów, a wygrał tylko jeden w imprezach rangi ATP Challenger Series.

Muster wciąż jest jedynym tenisistą z Austrii, któremu udało się triumfować w Wielkim Szlemie. Udało mu się to w 1995 roku na kortach ziemnych im. Rolanda Garrosa. Poza Paryżem triumfował w 43 turniejach ATP, zarobił dotychczas 12,257 mln dol., a bilans jego meczów to 622 zwycięstwa i 273 porażek.

Muster to finally end his career next month

Obrazek

Austrian ironman Thomas Muster will finally hang up his racquet for good as he plays for the last time at age 45 as a wild card at the home Vienna ATP event where he got his start in the game.

The one-time dominator of the clay courts in the 1990s and winner of Roland Garros 16 years ago has made an unsuccessful try at a return to the Challenger circuit over the past two seasons. His winning total has been a mere two matches, one of them in recent weeks in Todi, Italy.

A year ago, former No. 1 Muster took a Vienna wild card but lost in the first round to countryman and eventual finalist Andreas Haider-Maurer. Since then, Muster has gone 1-14 in Challengers.

Muster will celebrate his birthday next month, 11 years after first leaving the ATP.

"You shouldn't drag it out forever," Muster told local media. "I wanted to relive competitive tennis again - I've really enjoyed it." Musters stands 847th in the rankings.

"Vienna (beginning October 22) will definitely be my last appearance in an ATP event," he said, adding: "I might play a few Challengers next year, but that will be it."

Muster says it's really the final goodbye in Vienna

Muster says it's really the final goodbye in Vienna A decades-long tennis run looks to finally be over this week for Thomas Muster as the former Austrian iron man officially retires after a final entry into his home Erste Bank Open in Vienna.

The former world No. 1, who dominated on clay in the 1990s and won the 1995 French Open, will have a sentimental wild card entry into the ATP 250 event. He starts with an opponent more than a quarter of a century younger when he plays 18-year-old Dominic thiem.

Muster has made an attempt at a comeback after an 11-year-pause, playing on the lower-level Challenger circuit but winning just two of 25 matches dating back 14 months.

He played Vienna on a wild card a year ago, losing in the first round to compatriot Andreas Haider-Maurer, who went to the final against Jurgen Melzer.

"I wanted to relive competitive tennis again - I've really enjoyed it," the uber-veteran said of his comeback. "My second career has been the best I can manage with my body," he added to Austrian press as his last hurrah in Vienna approaches.

"But my second career has become a very tough job," said the 1,078th-ranked player.

Muster insists this week will be the final goodbye to the professional courts. "Vienna will definitely be my last appearance in an ATP event," he said, adding, "I might play a few Challengers next year, but that will be it."

Muster career ends

Thomas Muster has finally ended his ill-fated comeback attempt with a straight set loss at the hands of countryman Dominic Thiem.
Dominic thiem def. Thomas Muster 6-2, 6-3

Austrian veteran Thomas Muster bowed out of his ATP comeback career with a loss to fellow Austrian Dominic thiem. Muster was shaky on serve, with the crowd favorite saving just 1 of 6 break points against him. He was particularly vulnerable on the second serve, winning just 29% of the points in the brief match.

Muster ends his career with 44 titles to his name and the one-time moniker as the king of clay.

Muster Bows Out In ATP Swan Song

Obrazek

Former World No. 1 Thomas Muster received an emotional send off in his final appearance on the ATP World Tour, given 10 minutes of standing ovations by the crowd of 7,500 spectators before and after his first-round match Tuesday at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna.

“At the beginning I didn’t know if to cry or to play,” admitted an appreciative Muster. “It’s really hard to start a match a like that. You get standing ovations when you win, when you play a great match or win a tournament, but not in the first round and certainly not like that.

The 44-year-old Austrian was moved to tears during his speech following his 6-2, 6-3 loss to countryman Dominic Thiem, who was just five years old when Muster hung up his racquets for the first time in 1999 at Roland Garros.

“It was a great way to say thank you to everybody and that I had the chance to, after the French Open when I retired sort of semi-officially,” said the three-time Vienna finalist. “It was a good day to do that and I got a lot of respect for that. Thanks to everybody who supported me in the last year-and-a-half. It was a great experience for me.”

Muster made his return to competition in June 2010, playing a number of ATP Challenger Tour events in addition to his three ATP World Tour main draw appearances - twice in Vienna and earlier this year in Kitzbühel.

“I loved it because it was great to sort of see myself every week playing better, playing Challengers and winning a few matches, but also practicing with the guys and getting out there every morning and doing my job,” he reflected. “I really enjoyed it and I saw how much I enjoyed tennis. To play on that level and to challenge myself, I got a lot of respect from the guys out there. Thanks for that. I really appreciate that.”

While this marks the end of play at the ATP-level for Muster, he will play at the Salzburg Challenger in November and will compete on the ATP Champions Tour in coming years.

Muster compiled a 622-274 match record and won 44 titles over his prolific career, highlighted by the Roland Garros title in 1995. He attained the World No. 1 ranking the following February.

Muster goodbye could be hello to senior tour

Obrazek

Thomas Muster bowed out of tennis in Vienna at the hands of an 18-year-old more than a quarter-of-a-century younger, but the one-time ironman of the sport is looking like making a move into the senior ranks in 2012.

Muster,44, hung up his racquet in an emotional goodbye in the first round of the Austrian open event and received a tearful farewell from his fans. The 1995 french Open champion and former No. 1 tossed his racquet and towels into the stands, then said how much it all meant to him.

"I never had a chance to say goodbye," said Muster, who stopped playing for 11 years and then made a return 14 months ago to the ATP Challenger ranks just to see how he would do. It wasn't pretty, with two wins from 25 matches at that level. But Muster was proud of what he accomplished anyway.

"This is definitely my last appearance on the ATP. It was my last match, it was very exciting to end it in Vienna and very emotional. It was such a send off. I didn't know whether to cry or play," he added.

"I had a great year-and-a-half on the tour, it was great to test myself to get out and practise every day with the guys.

"I enjoyed my (last) year-and-a-half on the tour every much. I loved going out there every week, feeling myself getting better. I saw how much I really enjoyed tennis. I challenged myself and got respect from the guys (other players) and I really appreciated it."

While not making any promises, the eternal competitor hinted that he could well show up on the senior circuit next year.

Muster & Bryan Twins Meet Austrian Federal President

Obrazek
Thomas Muater and Bob and Mike Bryan
with Austrian Federal President Heinz Fischer.


Former World No. 1 Thomas Muster joined the world's best doubles team Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan on Wednesday to meet with Austrian Federal President Heinz Fischer on the Austrian National Day at Vienna's historical plaza Heldenplatz ("Heroes' Square").

"It was a great experience being here, in this beautiful square, and meeting this amazing man," said Bob Bryan. "He was really nice to us. It looks like he had some nice form on his serve. We're happy to be back again for the first time since Davis Cup [in February 2008] and we're looking forward to a great week. "

Mike Bryan added, "It has a lot of history and a lot of beautiful buildings. It's fun to walk around the city, see the architecture and meet the President - even though it's pretty cold out here!"

The visit came barely 12 hours after Muster was sent into tennis retirement on Tuesday evening by young Austrian Dominic Thiem at the Erste Bank Open.

The Bryan twins, who are competing at the ATP World Tour 250 indoor tennis tournament for the first time since 2002, take on Christopher Kas and Alexander Peya in their opening match on Thursday.

Muster Returns To Champions Tennis After 'Great Experience'

Obrazek

A new ATP Champions Tour tournament in Santiago, Chile starts today, featuring a host of former World No.1’s and Grand Slam champions. One of them - Thomas Muster - has had a particularly interesting year.

The 44-year-old Austrian, who has drawn Marcelo Rios, Greg Rusedski and Mariano Zabaleta in the round-robin stages in Santiago, reached World No.1 and won the 1995 French Open title during his career. Last year, he decided to challenge himself by playing some ATP Challenger and ATP World Tour events. Already fit from the events he had played on the ATP Champions Tour, Muster returned to the spartan existence that characterised his peak years, chiseling his torso into a shape that could endure tennis matches against players 25 years his junior.

Success against those odds was hard to come by (his best win came against World No.119 Leonardo Mayer in Italy last month), but there was more to it than that.

“It’s been a great experience for me,” he said. “Just to be driving around Europe and playing tournaments, having the challenge of playing younger guys has been great. I’ve improved a lot in the past few months and I’ve seen that I can be close to some good results. I’ve won a couple of matches but it’s been more about having a challenge all year long and it’s been a really great year. The respect I’ve got from the young guys has been amazing and I’ve really enjoyed practicing with so many of them.”

He played an emotional match at the ATP World Tour event in Vienna last month against an 18-year-old Austrian, Dominic Thiem, receiving a 10-minute standing ovation at the end.

“At the beginning I didn’t know if to cry or to play,” he said afterwards. “You get standing ovations when you win, when you play a great match or win a tournament, but not in the first round and certainly not like that. It was a great way to say thank you to everybody and that I had the chance to, after the French Open when I retired sort of semi-officially. It was a good day to do that and I got a lot of respect for that. Thanks to everybody who supported me in the last year-and-a-half. It was a great experience for me.”

Now back on the ATP Champions Tour, Muster is enjoying being back among his contemporaries from his first career. It’s beautiful to be around, to win, to be accepted, to get all the respect and actually make a, living out of something you really enjoy and you love. I’ve always enjoyed being a tennis player and I still enjoy it today. It’s something great I’ve been doing all my life and I’m lucky.”

“I am very happy to be here in Chile once more. I’m looking forward to a great event with a very very strong field this week. It’s going to be good tennis this week I think and I’m grateful to be here.”

In Group B, the top three players in the South African Airways Champions Tour Rankings will resume battle, with No.1 Carlos Moya taking on No.2 Mark Philippoussis, No.3 Thomas Enqvist and Argentine Agustin Calleri.

Matches are played over the best of three sets, with a Champions’ Tie-break (first to 10 points with a clear advantage of two) to decide the winner. After all round-robin matches are complete, the top two players in each group will meet in Sunday's final.

After Santiago, the ATP Champions Tour will move on to London for the year-end AEGON Masters Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall (Nov 30 - Dec 4).

Muster is Ready for New Challenges

Obrazek

Thomas Muster finally retired last month at the age of 44. His attempt to keep playing long after anyone else would have retired mostly ended in defeats for the Austrian former world number one and Roland Garros champion, not only at the few ATP events he played but also at the Challenger level.

Still, he has no regrets, as he revealed as he prepared to compete again on the ATP Champions Tour’s new stop of Santiago, Chile.

“It’s been a great experience for me,” he said. “Just to be driving around Europe and playing tournaments, having the challenge of playing younger guys has been great. I’ve improved a lot in the past few months and I’ve seen that I can be close to some good results.

“I’ve won (only) a couple of matches but it’s been more about having a challenge all year long and it’s been a really great year. The respect I’ve got from the young guys has been amazing and I’ve really enjoyed practicing with so many of them.

“It’s beautiful to be around, to win, to be accepted, to get all the respect and actually make a living out of something you really enjoy and you love. I’ve always enjoyed being a tennis player and I still enjoy it today. It’s something great I’ve been doing all my life and I’m lucky.”

To be eligible to compete on the ATP Champions Tour, players must have been either a World number one during their competitive playing careers, a Grand Slam singles finalist, or a singles player in a victorious Davis Cup team; and they should have retired from the ATP circuit.

1995: The Year of the "Musterminator"

Obrazek

Could anyone have stopped Thomas Muster at Roland Garros in 1995? Coming into the tournament, the Austrian had compiled an incredible record on clay, winning in Mexico, Estoril, Barcelona, Monte Carlo and Rome. Five tournaments on red dirt, five titles, no losses. "Musterminator", as he had come to be known, then strode into Paris and picked off the opposition, dropping just a set to unheralded Frenchman Gerard Solves in the first round and two in the quarter-final against Spaniard Albert Costa, who was the only player to trouble him throughout the fortnight before falling 6-2, 3-6, 6-7, 7-5, 6-2. Yevgeny Kafelnikov managed the grand total of eight games in the semi-final, and then Michael Chang fared little better in the final, garnering just 11. Six years after his fairy-tale win here in Paris, Chang was again impressive, eliminating the two-time defending champion Sergi Bruguera 6-4, 7-6, 7-6 in the semis, putting an end to the Spaniard's 19-match unbeaten run at Roland-Garros.
