Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

McEnroe ended his talk on BBC yesterday with a special mention of Wayne, who plays his 55th Slam in a row.

okay, it must be also noted that Ljubicic was injured and I give him credit that he even continued to play.

But also a well needed win for Wayne

I hope he will play some more tournaments, maybe even the US Open this year? Anybody knows? he said something about retiring at the end of 2004... is that still true?

Wayne Ferreira = most consecutive Grand Slam appearance

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

Congratulations to Wayne for 55 consecutive appearances in Grand Slams!!!!

And well done against Ivan!!!

Well Neely, in that interview I read, he said he would play Wimbledon, the Olympics, maybe the US-Open and for sure the Daviscup-Relegation South-Africa against Greece - that´s it I wish he would play just one more year on the tour

VAMOS TOMMY!!!

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

yes that would be nice, but maybe at some time he thinks it's just enough ... I don't know but it could be that he only wants to do all the things he was (mostly) missing during his career travelling from one tournament to the other and that he want to spend all of his the time with his family.

Sure, the Tour will lose a very big character and a (for me) exciting player with great achievements and an exciting game and it will be sad if he won't play anymore, but, on the other hand, it somehow also makes me happy if I know that he has a happy family. That's also nice and very honourable then!

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

Yeah, I agree with you. It´s very nice to see that he has a happy family and it´s totally understandable that he wants to spend as much time as possible with them. I wish him all the very best for his future. Anyway, he was my Number One and I will miss him very much

VAMOS TOMMY!!!

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

After he won against Kucera I thought he could come pretty far because his draw wasn´t that bad, but unfortunately he lost against Mayer
Hope he will play great Olympics and a fantastic US-Open!!

VAMOS TOMMY!!!

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

Wayne as the defending champ in LA today, where he could win his last title.

Srichaphan is a very difficult opponent, but if he finds a way to overcome Srichaphan the next round would be more easier against Morrison.

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

Have to bring this thread to the top again, as Wayne is playing the two very last tournaments of his long and impressive career this and next week. He´ll then definetely say farewell at the daviscup-tie against Greece I hope he´ll be able to play some more good matches in Long Island an NY.
Wayne, we will miss you!!!

VAMOS TOMMY!!!

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

It's going to be so sad without him! He's one of the nicest guys, so I hope that if he can beat Paradorn, he'll beat pimpim too (assuming pimpim gets that far).

Cool Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

I will definitely miss Wayne a lot. He's such a nice person, and a great player.

I hope he'll gain some success in Long Island and US Open. First round match against Lleyton in US Open is not an easy one, but the good thing is that there's a chance the match will be televised.


Allez! Nicolas Escudé Jérôme Haehnel Arnaud Clément Sébastien Grosjean Thierry Ascione Olivier Mutis Julien Varlet

C'mon! Lleyton Hewitt Mark Philippoussis Todd Reid

¡Vamos! Juan Carlos Ferrero Rafael Nadal

Yippee! Jan-Michael Gambill Graydon Oliver

Come on! Gustavo Kuerten Tim Henman

Wow! Patrick Rafter Wayne Ferreira

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

Gosh, Lleyton in the 1st round, that´s really tough.
But my second thought was also: Maybe that will be a television-match

VAMOS TOMMY!!!

Re: Any Wayne Ferreira-Fans out there???

yeah, not many tournaments/matches remaining for Wayne


Nathalie, don't forget to make a good-bye thread after the Davis Cup tie.
you started his cheering thread here as the first person and so I think you would be also the predestined person for this honor
