Well, there goes another one. I ALWAYS wnjoyed watching this guy play. Hopefully he'll get to play a little senior tennis for some cash. It's probably a good decision as he hasn't been a factor on the tour for some years now. French Nicolas Escude hits a shot to Argentinean Guillermo Coria in the fourth round of the French Open at Roland Garros in Paris, in May 2004. Escude announced his retirment from professional tennis after failing to overcome a troublesome shoulder injury.
