About her coaching change to former ATP player Javier Martí
Paula parted ways with longtime coach Xavi Budo after the US Open and opted to take a chance on recently retired ATP player Javier Martí.
“It was a big change, especially before a Grand Slam, but I really felt I needed it. I’d had a good relationship with Javí before. We knew each other very well, and so I was 100% sure things would work out and we’d be a good team. It just felt like a great time and moment.”
Just five years older than Badosa, Martí is as much a contemporary as a coach, sharing her eager enthusiasm for the sport that earned him the nickname “Il Loco Martí.”
“He knows all the players, spends all day watching tennis. He was on tour as a player until this year, so he understands everything I’m feeling in precise moments. He’s experienced the same things I have.
“Sometimes we’ll scout opponents individually, and then talk about it. Other times we watch matches together, because I really love tennis, as well. It’s can be like 24/7, the way we talk about tennis.”
