“It makes me very sad, very bitter. I cry, not in front of Guillermo, but I cry, because I see the children and it makes me angry.

And I was not wrong, he is a great father “, Clerc was excited.

Later in an interview he commented: “When we met, she did not know who he was. She thought he was a lumberjack and that he had many cows. Until she saw my shoes and there she realized that I was not a lumberjack.”

Phiang often shares Vilas moments with her children on her Instagram account, especially when she plays tennis with them. Andanin is one of Vilas’ weaknesses: he plays tennis, competed in the Under 14 category and even made his debut in the central court of the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club, in July 2014.

In 2000, Vilas traveled to Thailand to seek some peace. And life wanted him to meet Phiang, whose name means “The Beautiful Sea.” Today she, without a doubt, is his peace in the midst of that mental whirlwind that little by little is taking away the verbose tennis player that he once knew how to be.
