To his mother, Juan Pablo is already a winner, because it has only 11 years old, and everytime we discuss about her son, she can´t evoid tears falling through her eyes. She is proud to see Juan Pablo talking and playing with the rest of the boys from all over the world.
Juan Pablo should wear prescription glasses to play and he is the smallest in age and stature of the tournament but, far from causing an impediment, this “disability” has led him to build character since the begining of the competitions. His starting career has led him to visit the whole country, Mexico, but also to cross borders and measured with players in the States and Canada.
Tomorrow he will fight with the a Polish representative in front of the Eiffel Tower, which is not unknown to him, because he played before with his partner, Santiago.
No doubt the champion in Mexico, the best of our country, has now reached a peak in his career and the next step will be to see it´s further development from this point, Longines Future Tennis Aces.
His parents, workers, executives, businessmen and entrepreneurs, will provide daily support, both emotionally and financially, and now Longines opens a new door to have the opportunity to share these days in Paris with his family and grow the talent of their children…
