Feeling quite sad right now (I need a hug
I was expecting him to retire soon but not just now.
He had lost in Futures against 18, 17 and 20 year old Spaniards (only won a First Round match last Wednesday).
I watched his yesterday's match against Meffert but his serve and volley is not what it used to be.
He is still in the doubles draw, so I'll watch him for the last time.
I went to see him at a Challenger in Madrid last season where he won the Doubles title.

He had always had elbow problems but still managed to play some great matches.
A part of Serve and Volley tennis dies with his retirement.
I wish you the best of luck in your new life, Iván.
