Horacio Alvarez Clementi is the former padel world champion, a player who has experienced the very beginnings of this sport.
"We had to build everything"
He explains that: " At first, there was everything to do, both technically and tactically. There were no coaches like today or in-depth studies on the padel. There are 20 years, this sport was only at the beginning of its history. By the way, still today, the padel is a recent sport"
"We do not play the same sport anymore"
Horacio is also the coach of Moyano and Grabiel. And he says that "the level has changed enormously. Today we play a game much more aggressive. If the players have become very professional, the materials have also evolved a lot. Remember the days when we played with small wooden rackets on hard ground and most often with concrete walls. Today, the game is certainly more spectacular, because in addition we have a global vision of the field. "
