Kafelnikov: Promising

Unseeded young Russian Yevgeny Kafelnikov maintained his growing reputation with a storming 6-1, 6-3 victory over third-seed Magnus Gustafsson of Sweden in the second round of the $600,000 Rotterdam World Indoor tournament.


Kafelnikov, who only turned 20 last Friday and has risen 53 places on the world ranking list to 51 in the last seven weeks, stunned Gustafsson on Thursday with a lethal forehand attack which left the Swede impressed afterwards.


"He is one the best young players I have played against, and could make it right to to the top," he said.
