He has played this year, but in some minor tournments but I haven't seen him listed on ATP tournaments for ages. I always enjoyed watching and he played some good tennis.

He's around. He has a 7-16 record for the year. He played some tournaments early in the year, didn't really get far in any of them, he's ranked 175 right now and playing challengers.

I think that his ranking dropped due to injury. I saw him a couple of weeks ago playing a Challenger event in Tiburon. He had to default in the Semi to Kevin Kim due to back pain. Then, he went to play another Challenger in Burbank.

Not sure if his back injury has been the result of his ranking plummet.

...and what happened to good ole Younes?

I just watched him lose at the Bubank Challenger. I sat next to his bro. Giovanni and talked to him, super nice guy. His bro Giovanni went farther in the tourney than his former #6 in the world bro Nicholas!

Younes has a foot injury, I think it was his ankle. It's not healing I guess. Does nayone remember if he had surgery on it?
