Yeah I read this a couple of days ago elsewhere already. Might well be a good decision, his career as a player was on the downslide anyways.
Best of luck to him and charge(s)!

Mantilla coached Odesnik briefly.

Cañas has already opened an academy in Miami and not so strange coaching Odesnik as the Hebrew Hammer is from Florida, not a bad fit.

Canas has that one moment of glory beating Fed 2 straight tournaments.

Cañas winning Toronto TMS was his moment, beating 5 players in the top 15.

Guillermo :sobbing:

My biggest idol in tennis ever.

This guy is a true fighter, Ive known him since I was a little kid, he came to my club to play and always willing to talk to everybody, such a gentle and humble guy. I remember he told he was very poor when he was a kid, he was 12 hours in a tennis club which he was allowed for free, and he was always playing, and when he had no space or who to train with, he went to the wall or practice serve. He did this every day of the year.

He showed on court what a fighter he is.


I will call my son Guillermo because of him.

That was as Spartan and as tough a TMS run as I've seen. Probably one of the most impressive Masters victories.

Very similar run to Ljubo in IW, beating #2 and #3 in QF/SF and then Roddick in the final :lol: . And in both cases it came out of nowhere.
But Willy had a harder draw, especially if you consider that soon after Federer would become GOAT and Roddick would join the top 10.

Clown draw really, R64/Q/S were all mug headcases.

He's coaching Wayne and Paul Capdeville.

Really doesn't helpin them, even they're playing worse and worse before they wasn't coached by Willy.

Willy retiring and being a coach is not a surprise.
He is my favorite player and when he stopped playing, I missed him a lot. Slowly getting used to it now and glad he'll still be around as a coach.

Thanks for everything, Willy :worship: Proud to be a fan!

but good luck)

He doesn't seem to be helping much neither Capdeville nor Odesnik. Maybe he should take some coaching classes himself first. I really liked him as a player though, his matches against Henman, always entertaining.

Canas never looked like a smart guy to me, so I wonder if he can be a good coach. :unsure: The much more interesting change for me is that Moser is coaching Korolev now. :cool:

Good luck Cañas with Odesnik. There's a reason for Wayne has a never ending trail of ex-coaches. :p

I prefer Mantilla...

Another academy in Miami?

Why does one city get all the fun?

The IMG factory isn't in Miami, it's on the other coast of Florida.

My bad. All this time I thought it was near Miami. :lol:

In fact I assumed it was near the Key Biscayne island. :o

I think the main reason he decided to retire was that he had further wrist injuries. He also wants to play amateur football with his friends.

Okay now if anyone is going to tennis tournies and Paul or Wayne are playing please take some photos of their coach.

He still has a smoking hawt body.
