Madrid, April 8 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 8th Apr, 2021 ) :Toni Nadal, the uncle and former coach of Rafael Nadal, has confirmed he will work with the 20-year-old Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime.
"When the offer reached me, I told him to come to the academy (the Rafa Nadal Academy) for 10 days so that he could see if what I could offer him may or may not suit him," Toni Nadal told Marca on Thursday, adding he had not considered the idea of coaching another player.
"As the director of the Academy, it means I can collaborate with a player who has great aspirations and it is a challenge that motivates me," he added.
"If we have to play against Rafa, I would not sit on either of the two benches, out of respect for both players and because I am still the director of the Academy so I continue to work for him and I am his uncle," Toni Nadal said.
"But if he has to lose to someone, I hope it will be to Felix. I will never stop being Rafael's uncle, we have been connected for many years. But I hope in the future, it will be Felix who is world number one. For now, he must improve."
