Ex-tennis star Nastase sick of Romania
Tuesday, 18th  May, 2010
A television station reports that tennis great Ilie Nastase is considering leaving Romania because of an allegedly interfering press.
Realitatea TV reported on its website on Tuesday that the 63-year-old Nastase was tired of having to hide from “the paparazzi flashbulbs.”

The popular Nastase is in divorce proceedings with his third wife Amalia Nastase.

Nastase was one of the top players of the 1970s, winning the U.S. Open in 1972 and the French Open in 1973. He was a Wimbledon finalist in 1972 and 1976.
