Gaston Etlis, who coached Guillermo Canas, Brian Dabul and Dinara Safina, has been collaborating with his compatriot Juan Monaco.
Monaco, who last year suffered an uncomfortable right wrist injury that required surgery, split with his coach Luis Lobo at the end of last season and began working under the command of Mariano Zabaleta, recently retired from the circuit and a friend.
Monaco made his preseason and prepared for the Australian Open with Zabaleta but lost in the first round in Auckland (with Adrian Mannarino) and third in Melbourne (to Robin Haase).
Monaco, now ranked number 27 in the ATP, has decided to start working with Etlis, and hopes to gain in confidence and improve results.
