Coaching Team

Roberto Rubio

Savitar is proud to welcome Roberto Rubio as the new Director of Tennis at the Shangri La Hotel.

Born in Mallorca, Spain, Roberto was one of the country’s top 18/U players before injury cut his playing career short.  Since then he has dedicated his life to coaching, playing an instrumental role in the development of young players around the world. Most notably, during his time as the Balearic Head Coach, he was involved in the coaching and training of some great Spanish players, such as Carlos Moya and then Rafael Nadal, who both went on to achieve the number 1 ranking in the world.

He then moved to Norway where he became the Head Coach of the Norwegian Federation and coached the likes of Christian Rud  (top 100 ATP player) and Amy Jensen (top 175 WTA player). For the past decade Roberto has been coaching in top clubs and academies in U.K, Germany, United Emirates and now Singapore. He is a certified L.T.A. Tennis Coach, Spanish Federation Coach, Tournament Director and Chair Umpire.
