FélixAuger-Aliassime confirmed Thursday morning that he has hired Toni Nadal as a mentor for his team. The uncle of the famous player will work hand in hand with Frédéric Fontang to push Quebecer to new heights.
During his stay, he spent a lot of time hitting the ball with excellent left-handers and Toni Nadal. Subsequently, Auger-Aliassime and Fontang maintained regular contact with Nadal.
FélixAuger-Aliassime announced at a virtual round table with some reporters (including representatives of the Journal): “We hope there will be better competitions in the future.
“The stars are arranged together so that we can work together at the level of professional ethics and also at the level of values. It is important that everyone around me has the same people.”
Nadal filled the void left by Guillaume Marx’s departure at the end of last season. He will bring his expertise to the 22nd racket team in the world instead of being there all the time. Nadal will work hard to help him win his first professional ATP championship.
Auger-Aliassime added: “I want to work with someone who has entered the highest field of my sport.” I want to be the level of a day. ”
“I can’t wait for us to work together to get better in all aspects. There is no secret to success. I hope we can build a solid foundation together.”
Nadal brought his nephew Rafael to No. 1 in the world and helped him win 17 Grand Slam tournaments. An impressive record.
After leaving the position of head coach to Carlos Moya at the end of the 2016 season, he took over as the re-rope of the Rafael Nadal Academy.
As a trainer, he has always enjoyed a reputation for making the most of his expertise. We will see which method he will use with Auger-Aliassime because he is not always in his own surroundings. He will participate in the Monte Carlo Championship next week.
Toni Nadal said: “Working with Félix is a challenge similar to me and Rafael. It’s great to be able to work with a player who hopes to be the best player in the world. ”
