She had started in 2015 Summer with a one year-contract, thank to player's agreement with choosing her. In 2016 federation had renewed her contract again, but one year after, now the relationship between Conchita Martinez and the Spanish tennis federation ended in a bad way as she won't be the Davis and Fed Cup team captain anymore.
Martinez helped Spain to get back to the World Group in the men's side, as well as in Fed Cup, but results weren't really great as several times top players were not there. RFET, Spanish tennis federation, announced the news through its website on Thursday evening, thanking the former Wimbledon champion for 'the great work she did.
We decided to make a change to face new challenges in 2018', said in a statement RFET, that will soon announce the new captain. Martinez was upset and in a statement she said: 'I share with you my disappointment for the decision taken by RFET.
It is very ungrateful: you take charge of the boat when there is a storm, and when you achieve calm they dispose of the commitment to you. They didn't allow me to follow players during Grand Slam events. It was a good experience, but it should not have ended like this.
Federation didn't take in consideration Garbine Muguruza's opinion as well as Carla (Suarez Navarro), Lara (Arruabarrena). I didn't have any doubt about it.' Martinez was Muguruza's coach at this year's Wimbledon where the new World No.
1 won the title. Probably if Garbine was contacted, things would have gone differently.
