Jaun Carlos Ferrero may have retired from the ATP tour but the Spaniard could be back on tour next year as a coach.
The fromer world no. 1 lost to good friend Nicolas Almagro in straight sets on Tuesday and then revealed that he most likely will be coaching Almagro next year.
"There’s a good chance that I will be travelling with Nico to a few tournaments next year, maybe as a coach. It was nice to play my last match against him," commented Ferrero following the loss.
Speaking of his relationship with Almagro, Ferrero said, "When I first saw the draw, I was really not happy because he was one of the few players I didn’t want to play. We’re best friends, we practise together, and Nico is also trying to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. I was really not happy, but then, the nice side of it is that I played my last match against a very important person for me, a great friend."
