Have you coached any WPT players?
Yes, I have. I had the honour and the pleasure of coaching a few WPT players, among others: Alex Ruiz, Gonzalo Rubio and MatÍas Marina. Without wanting to sound blasé, I know practically all the players of the circuit, and their coaches.
At the moment I am coaching the former #1 Maxi Sanchez and his WPT partner, Tito Allemandi. Nacho Gadea, Celeste Paz and Angela Caro are also my WPT players for the 2021 season.
Do you have any racket advice or favourite racket brands?
My current racket brand of choice is Soderling. I just love the feel, touch and power their rackets provide. You can find my racket reviews on my YouTube channel.
My very best advice would be to test some padel rackets. Play some matches with it and see how it feels, particularly at the net and in defense.
If the racket and you simply don't gel, please don't buy it. Try another one and determine whether that one feels right. Your racket should feel like an extension of your arm. If it does, just buy it and enjoy your padel time together. Treat your racket like a loving partner: take care of it and it will love you back!
Our company is pondering upon sponsoring you or collaborating with you. Or we would like to be mentioned on your website, because you have a huge following on social media. Is that something you're inclined to do?
I'm all ears.
Do bear in mind that I will not switch racket or clothing brands (Spadda and Salming) as I'm a proud ambassador of those two companies.
I'm retired but would like to stay active. Is padel something for me?
The chances are that padel will be something for you!
Just give it a try and see how it goes. From the moment your ball crosses the net and lands inside your opponents' court, I bet you will be hooked! It truly is a highly addictive sport.
Moreover, you don't have to be an athlete or extremely fit to play the game. I've already seen two 80-year-olds beat two youngsters. It all boils down to technique, court awareness and position.
Our club is thinking of becoming an affiliated club so our members can enjoy special prices if they want to train with you. How do we proceed from here?
Great idea! Your club members will be thrilled!
They get to enjoy special discounts and prices for all of their lessons with me: they will be happy, you will be be happy because they are happy and I'm happy because everyone else is happy and because I get to do what I love most and that's teaching padel!
We can meet up in person to talk about the details of a collaboration or just get in touch via e-mail or WhatsApp. Thanks!
Are you still playing in the WPT?
I no longer play WPT-tournaments.
It was a question of the body over the mind: I still wanted to play but I had been having a few nagging injuries, which were hindering and bothering me so unfortunately I decided to call it quits in the WPT.
WPT players are true athletes. They put their body through gruelling workouts and stress, every single day, in order to become a better player. My body couldn't hold up any longer so I decided to focus on my family - I can tell you that the day I made that decision, blimey, it was a very joyous day for my wife! - and on my coaching career so as to make other players better.
Can we book you for a 4-lesson course or for an intensive 4-week padel plan, or more?
Intensive training courses are ideal to make great progress.
The lessons will be fixed by mutual agreement. They don't have to take place twice a week or not even weekly if your calendar doesn't allow it. You can book a course and we will plan the lessons accordingly. Oh, and the more lessons you book, the bigger your discount! So, what's not to like?
