Meet 95 year old Artin Elmayan, the world´s oldest-ranked player

This is 95 year old Artin Elmayan, the world's oldest-ranked player. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) ranks Elmayan 26th among men over 85. Elmayan started playing tennis at the age of 39. "Eighty-five plus, because there isn't anyone who's 90, much less 95.

So I have to play against 85-year-olds," Elmayan said in an interview. "I do all right, sometimes I take second place. Last year I won second place twice. It depends on the state of my opponent, and my own. There are no enigmas here," he said after a 20-minute knockup with one of the club's coaches.
