Jarry Brings On Bottini For Next Season
Nicolas Jarry has hired Dante Bottini as his new coach in a bid to reach even greater heights next year. The Chilean started working this week with Bottini, who was part of Kei Nishikori’s team for nine years, and will spend his preseason at the IMG Academy in Florida.
“I am very happy to start working with Dante. He has great experience at the highest level and I hope to learn as much as I can from him,” Jarry said. “I will do my best to continue improving and growing as a tennis player. I start this new stage in my career with total commitment to work hard every day.”
Jarry reached a career-high ATP Ranking of No. 38 this July after winning his maiden ATP Tour crown in Bastad (d. Londero). He also finished runner-up in Geneva (l. to Zverev) and scored his first Top 5 win against Alexander Zverev en route to a quarter-final showing in Barcelona.
The 24-year-old will kick off next season by representing Chile in the ATP Cup, held in Australia from 3-12 January. He’ll look to lead the Chilean squad past Serbia, France and South Africa in Group A play, to be held in Brisbane.
