The new life of Cañas

Guillermo Cañas asked me to talk in his new home, Bristol Park, on Brickell Avenue. Step into the parking lot and what would be a large lounge, Willy begins to talk about his project: a tennis academy at Crandon Park, the headquarters of the Miami Masters 1000.

The tender will be resolved in a few days and Cañas will divide the courts with other academy, the former player Francisco Montana. In the project, Willy is not alone: he is with friends Gustavo Oribe and Martin Garcia, a former coach and now doblista Guillermo Coria.

Cañas about his new job, retirement may at any time or in two years and its new stage as a player: the one that does not seek any ranking.

His new job

"The project was submitted in December, came to mature and become increasingly close. The proposal is larger in Key Biscayne and would be realized. before That was the local Association (USTA), but a while ago that was. We are polishing with Tero and Gustavo. Motivates me. when I leave Tennis, my focus will be 100% on the academy. "

"What we saw here in the academies are very marketable. We want to do something more competitive. Miami is a strategic location, you can play outdoors almost all year, we are ten minutes from the airport ... Many players will find they are comfortable home here, like Murray, Roddick, Monfils ... If you give them the facilities to train, gonna be cool. "

"Gustavo lead over the day to day, the development of tennis in that start. The adult part, and the competitive part, will be headed by Martin. I will be just the economic part today.. then when i live tennis i would be there more time. "


"I play, I love this. While no major injuries and win, I will continue doing. Today I am better than last year, my hand is much better than in December, when I felt stressed by the pain that was not me and I made new approaches. "

Depends of the mood to continue playing. Might at any time say: 'No more game' or who is two years. Today I want to travel. I had difficult schedules this year and played as well as against Gonzalez, Del Potro, Querrey ... If I win one or two matches, confidence comes alone. "

tennis now

"I do not care to play rankings. I am not seek to be 8 or 30 or 70 ranking. That cycle ended, I managed to got it and I think I had a decent career.
Now I just want to keep playing and enjoy. Are different stages in life. And I will not watch both the ranking. "

"I'm just traveling with a coach. I am not a coach of tennis because he felt that it was not time to have it. I wanted to take my time. I'm looking for someone to pose as something that in December and thought. "

Davis Cup

"Before I see the Davis i should see me. So I got out of the first round, I told Tito (Vazquez) and Caio (Rivera) in Australia. I did not feel well. Today, Davis is far more than other years, but not out. "

"I do not know Tito. I saw it was open to add and solve problems is a good thing for the team. He is a person of character, decided in his first captaincy that many did not like. Will always have problems at Davis, which hopefully will be resolved so that Argentina wins. "
