Youzhny Graduates With PhDs in Philosophy

Youzhny Graduates With PhDs in Philosophy

Mikhail Youzhny has graduated from the University of Moscow with a PhDs in Philosophy.

Youznhy answered approximately 20 questions about his work before all 16 members of the scientific council approved his PhDs.

"I took my coach (of 17 years), Boris Sobkin, and my family and friends as well, and the guy who helped me with the degree," said Youzhny. "There were some professors from the university there. I was a bit nervous because it was something new, it’s not like a tennis match I’m going to play, which I do every week. I was answering questions and reasoning, so of course it’s different. But actually, when I think about what I said, it’s my life, what I’m doing every day on court."

The Russian began studying for the degree in 2005, knowing that with limited free time as he competed on the ATP World Tour 11 months of the year, it would take him longer than the usual three-year period to complete it.
