Os quería comunicar que Francis Roig deja el equipo. Francis ha sido una persona importante en mi carrera y le estoy muy agradecido por todos estos años de trabajo y amistad.

"I wanted to inform you that Francis Roig is leaving the team," Nadal posted on social media. "Francis has been an important person in my career and I am very grateful to him for all these years of work and friendship.
"When we started working together I was a child and together with my uncle Toni, we started on the circuit."
Former world No. 1 Carlos Moya remains Nadal's primary coach. Marc Lopez, who partnered Nadal to the Olympic doubles gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, also remains a part of the 22-time Grand Slam king's coaching team.
