can be really bad as the year goes on

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

He is young and will bounce back. He is way too good not to. Health is the most important thing for him. He will win RG again.

But, I think Juan Carlos is taking it in stride and not letting it depress him too much.
I hope he goes to practice on grass and does better at Wimbledon this year.

Poor JC I feel so sad for him!!!! But I'm sure that maybe next year will be better. Like Stereophonics say in theire song called 'Tomorrow': "Maybe tomorrow, I'll find my way..."
You will find your way again, Juanqui, even if it's in Wimby, or next season or after a few other seasons!

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:

I'm sure he'll be back after the grass season. If he was any good on grass he would have been back even sooner....

Re: "Everyone has a bad year. It's looking like a bad year for me." - Juanqui

thing is, he got into the 2nd week on his first grass attempt. so he's got potential in that respect.

but he probably wouldn't want to risk the hard court season for grass...

and of course, i'm being indecisive as usual.

I think he needs some time to recover fully... He'll bounce back..

Re: "Everyone has a bad year. It's looking like a bad year for me." - Juanqui

I'd love to see Juan Carlos really take the time to be FULLY recovered, no matter how long it takes. He showed last year he can play well on Decoturf so he still has great chances to be at TMC if he does things right and really recovers to 100% before he plays again. you can do it JCF!

Re: "Everyone has a bad year. It's looking like a bad year for me." - Juanqui

well, even if he doesn't make it to TMC this year, it's not like he has points to defend

I hope Ferrero really picks it up though, He's easily top 5 and it's gonna look extremely weird not to see him there, and maybe not even inside the top 10

Re: "Everyone has a bad year. It's looking like a bad year for me." - Juanqui

@@ I'm not surprised by JC's ommission that season 04 may be a bad one for him.
* In January I predicted that Ferrero would finish 11th or 12th in the rankings this year-> thus miss out on the top-10 narrowly for the 1st time in 4-years...
Everyone seemed to suggest I was being a lunatic for predicting Ferrero's demise this year BUT the man himself seems to agree with my prediction in 04. I know he's a great player & likely to bounce back strongly (not sure if he'll ever get to No.1 again though). # Definitely he should win Slams again in the future but not THIS YEAR!!

PS~ Hewitt had his bad year in 03; fortunately that's behind him now->> as I've said before he's going to be in the Top-5 again by years end! Currently he's 6th on Champions Race & with grass-court season & American summer looming I'm sure he'll build significantly on his points.. In any case Roger Federer is a shoe in for No.1 by years end-> can't see him being overhauled unless Moya or Roddick do something crazy like winning 2-Slams this year!

Re: "Everyone has a bad year. It's looking like a bad year for me." - Juanqui

CmonAussie, if your prediction of JC fall out of top 10 were based on predicting that he will have serious health/injury problems during the year, then my hat off to you, you are dead on. Otherwise. When I predict the ranking, I assume players will be in good health and I based on their ability in order to predict, and to me, JC's ability is Top 5 whichever way I see it, unless and until he got hampered by poor health which I really couldn't call it in Jan. Who would have thought he will get chicken pox and bruised ribs.

Besides, only 5 months has past, there is another 6 months to play. Right now, JC is still ranked in Top 5 in Entry system and less than 10% of his points are from clay. It's likely he will fall a little bit but no lower than 7 after RG. Which means, if he can defend last year's points on hard court and grass, then he is likely to remain in Top 10. Granted, his health is still an issue and if that doesn't turn around quick, the year will be over for him. If his condition doesn't improve for the rest of the year, he could end up anywhere in the ranking, like Safin who missed half of last year ends at 77 rank. If that happens, at the least Ferrero has a poor health for an excuse, whereas Hewitt doesn't when he fell last year.

BTW, he looks forward to the clay season every year, this year however is a total disaster on clay. I can see why he thinks the glass is half empty. It is completely understandable that he is feeling negative about the year, nonetheless, it's also worrisome. The last thing he needs is a negative attitude when he is already worn out by injury.

Re: "Everyone has a bad year. It's looking like a bad year for me." - Juanqui

I think Ferrero should take a long break, rest up, and be in top condition to win the US open. That will make up for a bad year. Ferrero is a great player because he was not happy just winning on clay. He tried hard to be a great hard court player and has become one. To me, the best tennis player is a player who can win in any surface. I would love to see him win US open this year.
