Since retiring from tennis, Kafelnikov cashed three times at the 2005 World Series of Poker.[1] He also played golf on the European Tour at the 2005, 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Russian Open, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Austrian Open, and the 2014 Czech Masters, plus several Challenge Tour events, without making any cuts.

During the 2008 Miami Masters, Kafelnikov coached Marat Safin in the absence of Hernán Gumy. He participated in the ATP Champions Tour in 2009 and beat Sergi Bruguera, Michael Chang, and Pat Cash at the Chengdu Open in early November. In May 2011 he was ranked 7th on the Champions Tour.
