Question New coach ?

I've read on the website of the rfet that Tommy is coached now by Pepo Clavet (Fer's ex-coach)... Is that true ? Is that over with Vilaro ?

Re: New coach ?

What?! Again? I thought he was doing very well with Jordi Vilaro.
Maybe the arrangement was never meant to be permanent.
I did notice Jordi often had a little boy with him, his son? Maybe he couldn't afford to travel because of family comitments? Or maybe Tommy decided to go another route?
Maybe they just got it wrong... it happens... a lot.
Yes, please, anybody with information...

EDIT: entrenador... doesn't that mean trainer? maybe they mean he's his new trainer... but Pepo is a coach? Did he suddenly decide to become a trainer?

Re: New coach ?

Thanks to Emilita, I know that Jordi decided that he couldn't spend so much time away from his home and family, and since Tommy travels a lot... That's the reason why.

Yes, the little boy with him was his son, Allan.

Re: New coach ?

Aaaah, ok, I was completely obsessing about this already.
That's too bad though. Tommy did very well with Jordi, I hope Pepo is going to be an equally good choice. But they've known each other for a while I suppose. Tommy mentioned playing mus with him in his blog.
Thanks you and Emilita too.

Cambio de timón

José Clavet es el nuevo entrenador del español Tommy Robredo y hará su debut en el Master Nacional, donde intentará revalidar el título.

BARCELONA -- José Manuel "Pepo" Clavet es el nuevo entrenador del jugador español Tommy Robredo y debutará junto a su nuevo pupilo en Granada, donde este fin de semana se disputará el Máster Nacional, en el que intentará revalidar el título conseguido el pasado año.

Clavet, de 41 años, ha sido entrenador de su hermano Francisco 'Pato' Clavet, Álex Corretja y en los últimos dos años de Fernando Verdasco.

El técnico sustituye en el cargo a Jordi Vilaró, quien por motivos familiares ha dejado su colaboración con el jugador, debido a los múltiples viajes programados para la próxima temporada.

"Me siento muy ilusionado por empezar un reto tan importante, ya que nunca antes había entrenado a un top-10", comentó.

Clavet ha destacado de Robredo "su capacidad de trabajo y fuerza mental", además de ser un jugador físicamente muy completo, algo que ya ha podido comprobar durante los primeros días de entrenamiento.

Tommy Robredo, número siete de la clasificación mundial, aseguró sentirse "muy contento", por haber llegado a un acuerdo con Pepo Clavet, un técnico que "ha llevado a grandes jugadores".

El tenista está convencido de que el nuevo entrenador le ayudará a buscar nuevos objetivos para que el próximo año "sea igual o mejor que la pasada temporada".

En estos primero compromisos de la temporada, Robredo participará del 30 de diciembre al 5 de enero en la Copa Hopman, torneo mixto en el que formará pareja con Anabel Medina, y posteriormente tiene previsto participar en los torneos de Auckland (Nueva Zelanda) y Melbourne (Australia).

Re: New coach ?

It's a shame about Jordi, but I understand he wants to spend more time with his family. Btw - did anyone else see Mariano Monachesi is working with Chela now?

Good luck to Tommy and Pepo anyway.
