Tennis - Ferrero to coach Almagro

Juan Carlos Ferrero will coach fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro on a part-time basis next season.

Ferrero retired from the professional playing circuit amid emotional scenes following defeat to Almagro at the ATP event in Valencia in October.

The Spaniard had indicated he would work with his compatriot on a coaching level, although he has since said their partnership will only be on a part-time basis.

Ferrero is expected to join Almagro in Acapulco in Mexico for the tour event at the end of February.
