Hlasek was an arsehole and he used to coach the Swiss Davis Cup captain, but hardly anyone wanted to play for him, then the players revolted and got rid of him. He then went to captain the Fed Cup team and they didn't want him either, cause he was very unpopular.
Yaya Doumbia the Senegalese player who won Lyon. I think he could be living in France, but I am not totally sure of that.
