    He has not totally vanished. He played a future and challenger as late as September last year. http://www.itftennis.com/mens/players/activity.asp?player=10000174

    You have two threads going on the same question. Why are you after Braasch? Are you a process server?

    Braasch was funny. Strangest service motion of any tennis player (pro or club level) that I've ever seen.

    He's pumping gas at a Kwik-E Mart in Salzburg. Leave him alone.

    He is sitting at a bar, chain smoking, drinking beers and telling the story about how he kicked the Williams sisters' butts without really trying. ;o)

    In front of my computer, obviously
    He's coaching, but I can't remember who (Scheuttler?). And he quit smoking, said it was too hard to keep up with his players!

    I heard he was a scientologist. No kidding. That makes me sad, because even though he was nutty, I didn't think he was bat doodoo nutty.

    Before he played those Williams sisters, it was said he played 18 holes of golf, had a few beers and another cigarette, then beat those 2 girls easily, saying, "I was only half-trying". Afterwards, the girls then bragged they could beat the 200th ranked male player, not the earlier 100th one....
    Recently, he said he admits laughing when he sees his service motion on videotape, since it's the weirdest-looking serve ever....
