FFT > Les entraîneurs de Coupe Davis et Fed Cup nommés

Par Pauline Dahlem, vendredi 31 août 2012 à 20:11

En accord avec Patrice Hagelauer, le Directeur Technique National, et sur proposition d’Arnaud Clément et d’Amélie Mauresmo, capitaines des équipes de France de Coupe Davis et de Fed Cup, le Bureau Fédéral de la FFT a nommé Lionel Roux et Gabriel Urpi, respectivement entraîneurs des équipes de France de Coupe Davis et de Fed Cup. Lionel Roux, déjà entraîneur dans les dernières années de l'ère Forget poursuit donc sa mission. Quant à Gabriel Urpi, peu connu du grand public, il s'agit d'un entraîneur espagnol, âgé de 51 ans, mais parlant couramment le Français. "Je connais Amélie (Mauresmo) depuis très longtemps" explique Urpi. "Pour l’anecdote, j’entraînais Martinez lorsqu’Amélie a disputé et perdu contre… Conchita la première grande finale de sa carrière sur le circuit. C’était à Berlin en 1998. J’ai beaucoup d’admiration pour Amélie. Et je suis très flatté qu’elle ait pensé à moi pour l’accompagner dans sa mission à la tête de l’équipe de France de Fed Cup. Je suis très motivé à l’idée d’entamer un travail de construction, de bâtir un collectif, à ses côtés."

here's Gabriel Urpi's bio (yeah I know it's Wiki )

Gabriel Urpi


Gabriel Urpi (born 16 August 1961) is a former professional tennis player from Spain.[1]

Urpi was the Orange Bowl champion in 1978 and a semi-finalist in the boy's singles event at the French Open that year.[2]

A clay court specialist, he competed in the main draw of the French Open in 1981, 1982, 1984 and 1985.[3] The Spaniard had his best performance at the 1982 French Open, where he reached the third round, with wins over Patrizio Parrini and Chris Lewis, the latter in a walkover.[3]

He was a quarter-finalist at Madrid in 1979, Barcelona in 1980, Bordeaux in 1981 and Bari in 1984.[3] His only semi-final appearance was at the 1987 Bordeaux Open.[3] However, as a doubles player, he reached the Barcelona semi-finals in 1984, partnering Lorenzo Fargas.[3] Two year earlier in Indianapolis, Urpi and doubles partner Rick Fagel had an upset win over Mark Edmondson and Kim Warwick, a pairing that were dual Australian Open winners.[3]
Coaching

Urpi is currently the coach of Flavia Pennetta. He was previously the coach of Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1994 and 1995, during which time she won two Grand Slam tournaments and also coached Conchita Martínez to the 1998 Australian Open final.
