Richard Krajicek Interview

Stuart Appleby interviews 1996 Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek after his defeat to Pat Cash in the AEGON Masters Tennis Legend’s group at the Royal Albert Hall. The 40-year-old, who has been the tournament director of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam since 2004, lost to the Australian 6-7 6-4 10-6 (Champions Tie-Break).



Although the former world number four defeated Frenchman Henri Leconte 6-4 6-4 in his second match, any hopes that he might have harboured of making the Legend’s final were distinguished when John McEnroe rolled back the years to win their match 6-3 7-5.
