Former World No. 4 Caroline Garcia has decided to take advantage of not playing any tournaments this week by going to Manacor to train at the Rafa Nadal Academy there. Garcia has dropped to No. 46 in the rankings and recently lost in the second round of the Australian Open to Tunisia's Ons Jabeur 1-6, 6-2, 6-3.
Garcia has been coachiing with Gabriel Urpi, the former coach of Flavia Pennetta, and was also seen with two former Spanish champions Arantxa Sanchez and Conchita Martinez at the academy. The Rafa Nadal Academy in Manacor tweeted "Welcome to the #RafaNadalAcademy @CaroGarcia.
We hope you are enjoying your days training at the Academy, it's a pleasure having you here." The 26 year old Garcia has won seven singles and six doubles titles on the WTA tour. She is also a former World No. 2 in doubles.
Garcia and partner Kristina Mladenovic won four titles together in 2016, including the French Open that year. They were the 2016 WTA Doubles Team of the Year. She was also part of the French team that won the Fed Cup final last year in 2019 where she partnered once again with Mladenovic.
