    That´s right, it ain´t gonna be easy, but Mantilla still has the fire to play tennis.

    Since USO2005 he´s been fighting skin cancer, the toughest rival he´s ever had. Now, at 32 years of age, and after overcoming the dreaded cancer, he plans on playing at Barcelona -Conde Godo- and after that some more tourneys.

    Welcome back Felix Mantilla

    I wondered where he had got to. I really liked his game so it's fantastic that he managed to beat it and still want to play.

    Hopefully he will get lot's of WC's for the clay events.
