I think it is very hard to learn the game at the net, if your inner nature is not oriented towards it. And I also feel it is too much to ask such a change from Paolo, he's not 21 anymore. Why not working his strengths and the serve?
"History is filled with losers who never won anything themselves, but who ruin the success of others."
Paulo won l'Open de Caen! He played two matches - semis on Monday (6-3, 7-5 agains Charles-Antoine Brezac) and final yesterday (6-3, 6-2 vs Bennet).
He is happy to finally go for vacation - it's Seychelles this year. Paulo has ten days to rest and then on December 1st he'll start pre-season preparations (hope he manages to find a new coach before the new season is up and running). Rest well, Paulo!
