Juan Carlos Ferrero to retire after Valencia Open

An interview with the Mosquito.
However, in 2012 he has struggled to string together back-to-back wins, achieving the feat just once in eight tournaments this season, and will assess his future at the end of the year.

"Everything will depend on how fit I feel. If I feel in good shape and if I still feel motivated, and I'll also take a look at my ranking," said the 44th-ranked Spaniard, who owns the Hotel Ferrero, situated at the foot of the Mariola Mountains, near his native Villena.

"If I am at 80, 100, and I have to fight in the qualification rounds (and) after such a career, I can't start back from scratch.

"So, my intention was to continue playing until the end of this year. (From) October, I'll see how things go, and at the end of the year, if I'm ranking 25th or 30th, I'll continue.

"But if my ranking goes down to slot 80, 90, maybe I'll quit."

Do you think he can be at least in the top 40 by the end of the year. Considering he had a crappy first half of 2012. I also think that is unlikely he will qualify for any tournaments whatever his ranking is, he cane asily earn wild cards left and right except if Soderling is there too as an option.

Re: Will Juan Carlos Ferrero retire in 2012?

He'll probably finish top 70 at least, but he has to defend Stuttgart and Umag pretty soon. Starting at the USO, he defends quite a bit. With all of that being said, his tennis level is clearly top 50 at least. So a lot depends on his health more than anything else.

You cannot say that he will play the rest of 2012, because his body is leaving him all the time.
I hope he plays the clay tournaments post-Wimbledon, he can do a lot of damage there if fit.
And every else after that is a bonus.

Re: Will Juan Carlos Ferrero retire in 2012?

He said he'll decide so at the end of this year, depending on how he feels and on his ranking. Could happen, yes.

I'd rather not see it happen though...
Stay on the block as long as possible please, Juanqui!

Re: Will Juan Carlos Ferrero retire in 2012?

Unfortunately it looks pretty likely that he will hang up his racket at the end of year. But still he is 32 and has overcome so many injury setbacks over the years. He has had an outstanding career with impressive longevity, winning last year's Stuttgart title at the age of 31 nearly 12 years after his maiden title at the Mallorca buillring in 1999.

And he has been smart of the court as well as on it with his business operations, so he is in a great position succeed in life after his tennis career like he has done during it.

Re: Will Juan Carlos Ferrero retire in 2012?

Unfortunately I voted yes. I really like Ferrero but seeing as how he can't stitch 2 good matches together and keeps losing so early in tournaments I'm guessing his rank will only keep falling more and more and he'll end up quitting rather than working through qualies only to get a R1 match with top 10 guys...

I wouldn`t exclude Roddick from the list.Atm he is 90 on the year ranking,so i doubt he will continue next year if he doesn`t improve in the second part of the season.
Also u wonder how longer Davydenko will continue.

Re: Will Juan Carlos Ferrero retire in 2012?

I remember sometime late last year he said he would play for at least two more years, which made me presume he intended to play until 2013. Sure it all depends on how high he will be ranked at the end of the season. He is a fighter and he hates to give up, so I think he will continue if he's ranked high enough to enter most of ATP tournements (60s or 70s).

I really don't like to think the match yesterday was his last appearance at RG...

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

Re: Will Juan Carlos Ferrero retire in 2012?

Well, he exceeded my expectations this year already. He's not playing that bad, so he has a shot at it. Whether he'll actually make it depends on his health and motivation though...

Re: Will Juan Carlos Ferrero retire in 2012?

Hopefully not. His ranking should be high enough to get him into Masters for at least another year if he can stay healthy.
