Ovide and Reca to lead the Argentinean padel team
The Argentine Padel Association (APA) has announced that Rodrigo Ovide and Gabriel Reca are the new coaches of the Argentine padel team.
After announcing days ago that Mocoroa and Brea would no longer be the coaches of the Argentine Padel team, the APA has announced their successors. Rodri Ovide and Gaby Reca will be the head coaches of the Argentinean men's and women's teams from now on.
"Two great professionals have joined us to lead our national teams. Two people with a lot of experience and professional achievements: Gabriel Reca and Rodrigo Ovide. We congratulate both professionals for joining this new challenge". Announced APA on their social networks.
The change comes just three months before the next World Cup in Qatar, and the coaches will have to get down to work immediately. Both Ovide and Reca have extensive experience as coaches of the best couples in the world, and know like no one else the current situation of each of the top players on the professional circuit.
"Pride and excitement are the first things that the call generated in me. Second, a lot of desire and excitement to work with Gaby Reca in this great challenge to put Argentina at the top of the world padel. Thank you!" Ovide wrote on his Instagram
Ovide coaches the number one women's couple, Gemma Triay and Ale Salazar, as well as the number two men's ranked duo, Martin Di Nenno and Paquito Navarro. Meanwhile, Reca currently coaches top couples as Delfina Brea and Tamara Icardo or Fede Chingotto and Juan Tello, among other pairings.
The brand new coaches of the world runners-up will have their first big test at the next world championships in Doha, which will be held from 31 October to 5 November.
