Moya joins Rafa Nadal's coaching team

Rafael Nadal, who will open his 2017 campaign at the Brisbane International, announced that Carlos Moya has become a new member of his coaching staff and they will join forces immediately, in preparation for the upcoming season.

“I am very excited to announce that Carlos Moya will join my team immediately and work together with Toni (Nadal) and Francisco Roig," Nadal said. "To have someone like Carlos who is not only a friend but also a very important person in my career is something special. He will be next to me at my practices and competition."

Moya coached Milos Raonic to a year-end position of No. 3 in the ATP Rankings.

“Toni Nadal called me and to be honest it was great to receive that call," said Moya. "To be able to help Rafa is something special for me and I am sure that together with Toni, Francisco and the rest of the team we have a great common project. Rafa is a special player and above all a great person and friend on which I have a lot of trust and confidence that will be able to continue winning important titles."

In addition, Moya will join Nadal's new academy as a technical adviser.

"The Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar is an important challenge in an already very professional structure with great professionals that already do an excellent work," Moya added.
