Julien Hoferlin, one of Hopiness’ dearest members of staff passed away recently after a terrible illness. A former Davis Cup coach and of a number of Belgian players like Olivier Rochus, Steve Darcis and Dominique Monami, his last assignment was to train Maryna Zanevska, a player Hopiness supported for several years. A tennis connaisseur and enthusiast, he also gave Hopiness the benefit of all his experience and expertise in this discipline. Positive, frank, always joking, he had that unusual ability to do things seriously without taking himself seriously. We will hugely miss his unique and endearing personality….. Bye bye Coach!
