Rainer Schuttler

Rainer Schuttler, a German retired skilled tennis player, was born in Korbach, Hesse, on 25 April 1976. He started playing tennis when he was just nine, and the historic moment came at the same age when he was watching Boris Becker, a countryman win Wimbledon in 1985. His family consisted of his father, Karl, mother, Klara and sister, Marita. He is the only German player who has made up to a Grand Slam final in the 2003 Australian Open. In the 2004 Summer Olympics, Schuttler won a Silver medal in doubles and in April 2004, attained a ranking of World No.5 which was a great boost to his career in tennis.

At the 2003 Australian Open, Schuttler was the runner-up to Andre Agassi. In 2003-2004, he was ATP Player Council President and from then on wards he was a professional until he concluded his career with a game record of 327 wins against 337 losses. 2004 was the sixth year in which Schuttler made directly in the ATP top 50. He began his 2009 term at the Chennai Open, winning a number of matches from expert players. Regrettably, due to a wrist injury, he had to pull himself out from the Sydney tournament, but later at the Australian Open, he was ranked 30th. Schuttler made to the second round of the 2010 Australian Open after defeating Sam Querrey in four sets. He was fortunate to get to the semi-final of the 2010 Aegon Championships at Queen Clubs, London. Schuttler retired from tennis in October 2012.
