In an interview, Pablo Andujar spoke about his co-operation with the mental guru Pepe Imaz who also works with Novak Djokovic. Andujar said: "He is also a bit of a mental coach. I worked with Pepe years ago and it was going very well.
Even if I have to admit that my best therapy was just the injury. Not being able to play made me realize many things. I appreciate more what I have and where I am. Sometimes we do not realize how privileged we are in being committed to tennis and living of something that we like a lot.
Without a doubt, the injury made me appreciate things more and see life from another kind of perspective." "Valencia has been featuring many great players for a lot of years. Juan Carlos Ferrero was a former world No.
1 and David Ferrer was in the top ten for many years. It's a pity that the ATP Valencia Open is not there anymore but life is like this. I think I will not play anymore an ATP event at home like the one we had, but I want to hope that fans can enjoy an event like this again in the future.
I was sorry because it was an amazing event which gave a chance to the younger players to compete at their best level. It was positive both for fans and the promising Valencia native players. We hope there is another men's Tournament again which doesn't take a lot of money.
In this city, we like tennis a lot and there are many hobbies. That's why we have been so successful in this area in the last years."
