He has slipped away quietly and no more Felix Mantilla on the courts as a pro player. He came in quietly and left the same way.

Default Re: Mantilla Thread

some Felix news.. (i've translated below)

Félix Mantilla se plantea regresar a las pistas

29/11/06 03:00 h. El tenista barcelonés Félix Mantilla, retirado desde hace unos años por una enfermedad, comentó ayer que se plantea volver a jugar competiciones una vez adquiera la forma física idónea. El tenista, de 32 años, dijo en Catalunya Ràdio que “he estado luchando contra un cáncer de piel. Eso te hace ver las cosas de manera diferente, pero estoy mucho mejor y me planteo regresar a las pistas”

Basically saying Felix is planning on returning to the courts after being forced to retire a few years ago through illness. He told Catalunya Radio yesterday he had been fighting skin cancer. It had made him see things differently, but he's feeling better and plans to return to the courts.

I had no idea he'd had cancer poor guy!! I hope he gets fit again soon and comes back...he's a great guy!

Default Re: Mantilla Thread

Well, I just saw this and thought you guys maybe would like to send him messages:
http://www.tennisafondo.es/scripts/

Right column "Preguntale a Félix Mantilla"
Click on Félix Mantilla and a message window appears.
It's a Spanish magazine but there seems to be no problem writing messages in English. Sometimes they translate English into Spanish, other times not.

This is a monthly thing and runs normally by middle of the month - middle of February this time.

EDIT:
They choose some messages and publish them on the next(?) issue. Not 100% sure but looks like they give all the messages to the player.

Thanks a lot for that article scan Carlita, sadly I can't speak a word of Spanish. I won't ask people to translate it but what is the main headline/story?
