Moya lives in Switzerland?

According to the ATP website, Carlos Moya makes his residence in Geneva, Switzerland.

Is this true? I'm wondering if it's an error because I don't recall this being a fact.

Thanks in advance.

yeah, that's why he has a domicile in Geneva. Like many other sportsmen and artists who have their "home" in countries like Switzerland, Monaco, Andorra, Bermudas, etc. for tax-reasons

Re: Moya lives in Switzerland?

Countries like that are called "tax heaven" ...there they fix residence, but generally they live a few weeks in the year on this countries just because they have to observe the law

Re: Moya lives in Switzerland?

"Tax haven"... but you're right Carolinita, they are tax heavens as well, LOL. Besides, how could anyone forget Moya's place of residence after this immortal quote from TBE following Moya's loss to Coria at RG:

"Carlos, he should be made to walk home.

Carless Careless Carlos Moya, walking home from Paris to Geneva."

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Moya lives in Switzerland?

Carlos has been living in Geneva for quite a while.

Some French players like Clement, Di Pasquale and a few others live there as well, as the French aren't allowed to live in Monaco.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

To be more precise, they can have a residence in Monaco, but their main home has to be registered in France. Which doesn't help in anything concerning taxes. As the main reason to go and live in Monaco is to escape that tax system, you see why it is useless for them to go and settle a secondary home in Monaco.

Re: Moya lives in Switzerland?

In fact I know only French and Americans aren't allowed to benefit by this fiscal system. It's like that. I don't know if Spaniards are'nt allowed neither.

That's why there are so many Frenchies in Geneva: Escudé, Santoro, Clement, Mathieu, Forget, Di pasquale, Pioline, Mauresmo...
moreover it's very practical for them, it's a french speaking country, juste near France, not far from Paris etc...

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Thanks for clearing that up, but I knew it wasn't beneficial for French players to have the main residence in Monaco, hence Geneva or Andorra are the other options.

Henri Leconte is another one who lives in Geneva and it's only 3 km from France.
