Old 22e world player and current captain of the Italian Fed Cup team, Tathiana Garbin gave a nice interview to the Italian daily Daily fact. An interview in which she returns in particular to her experience as a coach and her exchanges with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic when she was still on the circuit.
“A good coach knows how to bring out the talent of his student and, above all, to make him autonomous by thinking for himself. A trainer must convey passion and determination, while making children grow humanely. I really appreciate that my daughters read books and don’t spend all day on their cellphones. You don’t become a champion if you don’t work on yourself first. I understood a lot of things on the pitch, being around great champions like Federer and Djokovic, very humble people who speak to you calmly as if they were your lifelong friends and who, in a few minutes, can give you so much things. “
