Carlos Moya

Carlos Moyá is a Spanish tennis coach and former tennis player, winner of the singles at the 1998 French Open and number 1 in the world for 2 weeks in March 1999 after the final held at the Indian Wells Masters.

He won 19 more singles tournaments on the major circuit, including three in the Masters 1000 category, and reached the final at the 1997 Australian Open and the 1998 ATP Tour World Championships. As a coach, he achieved great results with Milos Raonic and Rafael Nadal.

He has been romantically linked to Italian tennis player Flavia Pennetta. On July 7, 2011 he married Carolina Cerezuela, with whom he had had his daughter Clara the year before. In 2012 the second son Carlos was born and in 2014 the third daughter Daniela.

He began coaching in the ATP circuit at the beginning of 2016 by joining the technical staff of Milos Raonic, who during that year rose from 14th to 3rd position in the world with a series of great results including the final reached at Wimbledon and the semifinal at ATP World Tour Finals.

The working relationship with Raonic was unexpectedly interrupted the following December, and a few days later Moyá joined the staff of his Majorcan countryman Rafael Nadal, with the commitment to also follow the Manacor champion's tennis academy. Already in 2017 Nadal climbed from 9th place in the ranking in January to 1st place in August.

During the season he won Roland Garros and the US Open among other tournaments and before the end of the year Moyá became head coach in place of the historic coach and uncle Toni Nadal. Under his guidance Nadal will reap many more successes in the following seasons.
