thanks for the piccies, RF.

"Ferrero's going to be a tough one for anybody. This guy is the real deal already. He's got a chance at going a long, long way. This guy could be the best Spanish player ever; that's saying something." - John McEnroe, June 2000

another pic for you -- press conference:



Juanqui said he's 100%, better than in OZ! Says it's great in Sevilla, loves the clay, which is fast! Last time Spain played in Sevilla was 1980 and they won vs. Holland 4-1!! If they win their rounds until the semis, they could possibly play at home where they are the favourites... but let's not get ahead of ourselves, guys!! One step at a time, say the coaches!!

Thanks for the pictures

Question - if Croatia beat the USA, who gets the home tie: Croatia or Spain?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

They are seeded for either Russia or Argentina in the semis, correct? Russia is the seed I believe, but if both win their first ties then Argentina gets Russia at home...

I lack direction.

Juanqui looks a bit bashful in that pic Vera!!

Looks like they will do the draw tomorrow [Thursday] at the Hotel Hesperia where the players are staying in Sevilla. I believe that Malisse will play Moya though first, on Friday.

Buena suerte Charly!

Spain v Belgium: Spaniards Put Big Guns Out

Clay court ace Juan Carlos Ferrero will lead off a strong Spanish challenge in the 2003 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas on Friday, taking on Christophe Rochus of Belgium in the opening singles rubber of their first-round World Group tie in Seville.

Thursday’s draw in the Andalucian city also matched up former French Open champion Carlos Moya with Belgian number one Xavier Malisse in the second singles on Friday.

Albert Costa will partner Alex Corretja in the doubles against Kristof Vliegen and Olivier Rochus on Saturday, with the reverse singles set for Sunday.

Spain, winners of the competition in 2000, have an awesome line-up on clay and they will start as overwhelming favourites to take the first-round tie against the Belgians.

Ferrero, Moya and Costa, the reigning French Open champion, are all ranked in the top 10, while Corretja is one of the wiliest clay-court campaigners around.

The three-man coaching team in charge of the Spanish set-up have dubbed 2003 the year of the “Reconquista” of the title won in such spectacular style with their final victory over Australian in Barcelona in 2000.

“Whoever we play on clay we believe we’re the favourites,” Jordi Arrese, one of the coaches, said in the build-up to the tie.

“We also believe we have a team capable of winning the Davis Cup but it’s important that we go step by step.”

Belgium are not so comfortable on the red dirt but they will come into the tie with their confidence high after making it through the Euro/African Zone Group 1 and World Group Play-offs last year to make it back into the elite. Malisse and Olivier Rochus led them to the all-important 4-1 victory away to Zimbabwe in Harare.

The winner of this tie will take on either Croatia or the United States in the next round.

That provides a major incentive for the Spanish, who have good and bad experiences of recent ties against the Americans.

In 2000, Spain handed a U.S. team, captained by John McEnroe, a 5-0 drubbing in Santander on their way to taking the title.

Last year it was the Americans who emerged triumphant, although Corretja did manage to beat Pete Sampras in his singles rubber in what was a huge upset on a Houston grasscourt.

This match provides the third meeting between the two nations and the first for almost half a century.

Spain took the spoils in the first clash in 1930 in Antwerp, with Belgium claiming victory in the second tie in Barcelona in 1956.

All European and Brit Spain fans unite! Please keep us updated with the scores!!!

I won't be around til late [!!! ] tomorrow...

Go, Juanqui, "lider" of the DC team!!!

Sjengster: lol your comments re: Moya's looks!! Seems more people think he's the REAL Spanish pinup boy, not Corretja nor Ferrero! I saw Moya on an ad for some kind of candy or sth on one of those sandwich boards in Sevilla a couple of yrs ago!! He has his own cologne too.

Juanqui won 6-3 6-2 7-5!

Congrats darling!

He had some problems in the 3rd set when Christophe even served for the set, but he broke back and proceeded to win while avoiding the tie-break.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?
