While this isn't about Fernando, I think it really affects him. Horacio already coaches enough players. Don't mean to criticize Horacio because I really like him, but really enough. Plus he has his school. I really want Fernando to get most of his attention.
Does anyone know if he still has that Argentine doubles team (Etlis-Rodriguez)?
All finalized in good terms. And Leonardo Zuleta found that was the best for its now former one pupilo. "What happens is that Adrián is a business that was handled between ranks of ranking of the 500 and the 100. To be able to travel and to settle his career in that status, he needed to work in team. And as Hermes Gamonal no longer will travel more and Phillip Harboe recently he is returning, he was not profitable to continue with our project", he explains the own one "Nano" about the removal of Adrián Garcia of his "corral". And what did the of Concepción? He opted for calling to Horacio de la Pena and to be join with his working party, of such form of seeking another alternative that permit him reposicionarse in the Tour.
Garcia united from Monday al team that compose Fernando González and Paul Capdeville, with whom was this year fighting for being the third national racquet. The second only surpasses it today by a place in the classification (148º against 149º), for which both can travel next to the same tournaments. The idea is that in the measure that play not the same championships of Gonzalez, they are accompanied for another person that assess them.
Nevertheless, de la Pena expects that soon all they can travel together. "What is important will be to obtain that as much Adrián and Paul plunge points so that rise in the ranking and we can go to the same tournaments. That it is the goal that we have proposed us, because the two already have been very near becoming among the 100 better", explains the coach Argentine.
Three of four
By these days all the group carries out the pre-season in Santiago. Garcia, who did not have a good one 2005, at the age of 27 new search air that permit him to go in search again of the group of the 100 better than the world. And de la Pena thinks that still is to time, although improving some things. "Always I have said that Adrián is a player very talentoso, but that physically he lacks him a lot. We will work that aspect and also another to try to comply the goals that we have proposed ourselves", he explains the Argentine coach.
From this week, de la Pena he will collaborate with three of the four better racquets of the country, a honor for the "Pulga". "He is very important for me. He is something that prides me a lot and that I take it as a great challenge", comments the Argentine.
