Train with the very high level
“I actually only spent 5 months in Madrid. I went in February, and we were confined from March to May. I had to get treated for my left knee as it has been hurting for over a year now with a crack in the patellar tendon. So I went back from the beginning of July to the end of December.
“I learned a lot about how to teach Spanish. I was in a high-level group so i had the chance to hit the ball with Juan Martin Diaz, Chingotto, Di Nenno. It was really very enriching.
I learned a lot about technical, on the tactic. So I retain a lot of positive. This will help me in my work, because my # 1 goal was to then resume coaching padel. "
The reasons for his return to France
“The reasons for my return are very simple: I had family concerns which made me realize that it was complicated to be far away.
The second reason is that with the Covid, the sponsors that I should have screwed up a bit. Financially it's very complicated to pay for training and rent without having any money coming in. "
“The n ° 1 objective is to treat me”
“My tendon crack came back. I restart treatment from next week. I want take care of myself and regain pleasure to play.
Knowing that Thomas (Leygue) and Bastien (Blanqué) play together, So I won't be able to be as competitive as if I had played with one of the two… So I decided to devote myself mainly to my health at first, and for the rest we'll see. We should already be able to do tournaments… ”
A reunion for 2021?
“To regain pleasure, it is very likely that I will play again with my former partner Yoann Roumy who takes over padel also. We discussed it a bit, but it is very likely that we will play again together.
She's a person I adore. I like his character and we are very complementary on the pitch. It will take a little practice to get back to the level, but the goal is to have fun again. “
Blue, white and red ambitions?
"The France team has always been a goal. I admit that without playing with Thomas or Bastien, it can be a little complicated to go looking for big teams and show my progress.
I'm also starting to tell myself that almost 30 years old, with a year without working, my goals have also changed a bit. Before it was really a big desire for me to reach this French team, and I gradually start to detach myself from it, to really want to have fun again, improve, and have fun above all in tournaments! ”
