Fernando Verdasco, 38 years old and 154 in the world now, he does not throw in the towel and intends to return this season to positions that will give him entry into the best tournaments. The Madrid has put himself in the hands of Duglas Cordero, one of the most prestigious physical trainers on the circuit.
The Cuban has already had success with tennis players like Dominic Thiem, Leylah Fernández (finalist at the US Open this year), Fabio Fognini, Francesca Schiavone or Nadia Petrova. And Verdasco, along with his coach Guillermo Alcaide, is training under his command in Miami to try to regain his level. “I have had a bad year with injuries, I have not been able to be in shape, train hard or play well”, he was counting on AS before making his debut as director of the recent Davis Cup finals in Madrid. After Wimbledon, he had to undergo surgery on his elbow.
“Starting the 2022 preseason with this animal. I had wanted to work with him for a long time and finally we are going to do it. We are going to death!”, Said Verdasco, who became seventh in the world in 2009. Along with Duglas Cordero, and as he has shown on his social networks, he is trying to recover a powerful version with explosive jobs on the beach.
