Whatever Happened To … Alberto Berasategui?

Alberto Berasategui

A heck of a clay court player, his extreme western forehand grip was only going to last for a short time until his wrist crapped out, which it did by 1998. However, he made the most of his clay court prowess in 1994, his career year.

What are they doing now?: Playing backgammon, dancing and skiing according to the ATP
Career titles: 14
Win/Loss Record: 278/199
Career High Ranking: 7 (1994)
Finest moment: In 1994 he won 7 of 9 finals and reached the French Open final, losing to Bruguera in 4 sets.
Famous For: His frying pan grip, striking the ball on the same side of the racket on both sides. One can assume he is a dab hand at frying an egg too.
