Galo Blanco Announces Retirement

My Spanish is not that good, but it seems like Galo Blanco has announced his retirement.

http://www.terra.es/deportes/articul.../dpo206284.htm

He did as well as he could with his game and he was discovered by Corretja's father and lived with the family once he moved from his home town Oviedo to Barcelona.

All the best in retirement and hopefully for him Real Oviedo can make it back to the top division.

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".

Re: Galo Blanco Announces Retirement

Galo Blanco. Enjoy your time as retired. Still to be remembered eg. as a person defeating Sampras

And I saw him defeating Nadal on clay... but it was a practise match

I will burn
And you will die...

Re: Galo Blanco Announces Retirement

Please, any relevant history of Galo Blanco? He reached quaterfinals in Roland Garros 1997 and 4th round in Wimbledon and only reached ranking 40th?

Now hes coaching Milos Raonic.

I watched Galo losing to Guga in 2001 Acapulco.
