If he wasn't a tennis player he would still be involved in tennis in some capacity, most likely as a tennis coach
On his style of play he says, "I had been all my life playing what I call 'casino tennis,' hitting crazy shots, gambling with big shots and closing my eyes just hoping the ball would go in. Last August, when I came back to tennis after the illness, I had a long chat with my coach, Ronan Lafaix, who persuaded me to do things differently. He urged me to start focusing on one thing at a time, to concentrate harder than ever before and develop a precision game"
Coached by countryman Ronan Lafaix (not affiliated with FFT or Lagerdere).
