With almost a quarter of the season completed, the genius from San Luis is one of the players standing above the rest. Daniel Sanyo Gutiérrez started the season with a new partner and old friend such as Maxi Sánchez, and they've won three of the four tournaments they've played together to reduce the deficit more than ever with regards to the world number ones: Bela and Lima.
He's won two MVPs in the three tournaments he's claimed. Two acknowledgements for a magician who has shown his quality in Catalunya, Alicante, Zaragoza and Jaen.
Added to his class and finesses, this year we've seen a much more reliable version of the Argentine alongside Maxi and under coaches Gustavo Prato and Nito Brea. He's reduced his unforced errors, become more solid and become one of the most reliable pairings in the world alongside Maxi, putting the pressure on the until now unbeatable Bela and Lima.
Sanyo Gutierrez, an MVP where the M is for Magician.
