Saw Thomas Enquist today at USO

Sorry if I spell his name wrong, but saw him today at the USO on a court hitting with Verdasco, probably for warmup. I was surprised, dude looks really fit and can hang with V with quick exchanges on the baseline. Is he playing in the senior tour? He looks really still "got it".

Thomas retired in 2005 so not surprising he is still in good playing shape especially since he is the caption of the Swedish Davis Cup team. He also is a commentator for Eurosport Sweden so not much time for playing senior tennis yet.

Hey Mike, I saw you play him in Cincy way back in '96... which was the only time you ever beat him I believe lol. He's a fairly big fella, 6'3"-6'4" and 200 lbs or so if I remember.

Wouldn't be surprised if he's still the best Swedish tennis player despite being inactive on the pro circuit.

Not sure about his value as a coach though. Verdasco's results have been average/poor since teaming up with Enqvist.
 
Enquist still 'has it' on fast even surfaces.
provided he is in control of the point.
He was never the best defensive player but once he got his grab on a point he could smoother the ball + the opponent.

Saw him play in Holland and he still plays well on HC.

yep. First I thought Tom was hitting with a junior, lol, then I recognized it is Verdasco, only because Tom is so big.

Actually have a VHS tape when you're playing him in the 90s. Can't remember which tourney it was or who won though, but it was a really good match!
