Mariano Puerta (43 years old, former World N °) He will return to the circuit but as a coach in the Chilean team Cristian Garin, current 17th in the world and second best Latin American today.
La Tercera reported on Tuesday that Puerta joins Garin’s coaching staff, who in September had ended his relationship with fellow Argentine Franco Davin (with whom he worked for 10 months). Cristian Madariaga, Jorge Aguilar and Duglas Cordero will continue to work alongside Garin.
For Puerta (3 titles, finalist at Roland Garros 2005 and suspended for doping) it will be his first experience training on the Top circuit. He previously worked alongside Brian Dabul.
Garin currently occupies the best ranking of his career although without great results at the end of the season. He completed 2021 with 21 wins and 18 losses, he was champion in Santiago and reached the round of 16 at Roland Garros and Wimbledon.
