Unhappy Worried about Juanqui

JC has now lost six matches in a row. . .a first for him and this worries me. Ever since the US Open, it seems like he's been on a downward spiral (save for the TMS Madrid win) and I am worried that his less-than-stellar end to 2003 will affect his playing (or his mental game) going into 2004.

The Houston masters was just a nightmare. His record was the worst of the bunch; he didn't win one match and he looked like he just didn't give a shit about it all. The Davis Cup loss against an injured player just added another thorn in his side.

In contrast, his top seed peers will be going into 2004 feeling pretty good about themselves: Roddick is No. 1 and king of the hardcourts; Federer played Houston like a flute and walked away with the pot of gold as well as gaining new fans; veteran Agassi beat the young guns to make it to the semifinal with Federer and was the only player of the lot to give Federer any kind of serious competition all week (the first match, not the final). Everybody moved up in the rankings except for JC, who moved down. Yikes.

And defending his Roland Garros title will be difficult; the Argentines will be a serious threat to him next year.

On top of all this, JC just looks flat-out miserable, tired, and unhappy to me. I actually thought he was ill in Houston, that's how out of it he looked. The tennis off-season just isn't long enough for players to relax and recover from their injuries and I know he has complained of this before.

I hope JC will be able to recover and shake off this bad run and get back on track in 2004. He doesn't strike me as being a headcase but I still don't like seeing him so down like this.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Worried about Juanqui

every player has a period of going down, fysicly or psychic. Now i think it is ferrero. If he is a great man, he will come out; just give him time

Re: Worried about Juanqui

tangerine dream--you have put my thoughts into words PERFECTLY...i have felt the exact same things and have no idea whats going on in that mind of his. He's looks SO down and miserable and i've been really worried but i guess theres no way we'll know whats going on...we'll just have to see what happens next year when he comes back to Australia. I hope he's not having big personal problems out of tennis or something but obviously...we wouldnt know and theres no point speculating whats wrong but whatever is wrong, i hope it gets better soon and our Juan Carlos feels better soon again

Damn I thought I was the only one thinking that... But you know guys, Claudine is right on this one! Every player can have a period during which he or she is not playing as good as he or she can. But I'm sure that, if we give him some time, he'll make up for it in the future. I can't believe that a guy as talented as JC would simply vanish from the top 3, top 5, top 10 or whatever... *although Hewitt has been pushed out of the top 5 in no time, which is kind of a scary thought* Argh what am I saying!

We WILL prevail !!!
*omg i'm beginning to sound like Mr Bush of the US of A... YIKES*

Wouldn't you just wanna hug him to comfort him? *hehehe* Our sweet prince.... *hmmmm, you guys also have this feeling that your obsession with JC is getting out of hand?*

Well, here in Belgium we always say "thank God being crazy doesn't hurt"
(you guys have a saying like that too? think it's kinda appropriate in this situation )

Re: Worried about Juanqui

Who cares about Lleyton Hewitt??!! If he goes down then thats good! I really strongly dis-like him and I dont care if he goes down...but JC, such a talented guy and deserves to stay in the top 10 has had such a bad end-of-season. I really hope he does get back on the horse and starts playing good and winning again...but I think bad luck is on his side...just not playing so well has made him slip down.

Lets all hope that he will bounce back and have a season he will never forget!! (May it be a good one!!)

Good Luck!

BTW its so cool to see how many ppl are worried about JC's state (not in a mental way)...shows how many ppl like and care for him soo much!! Ahh!

I know it's worrying but I'm sure he'll be fine. At least I hope so!

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

Re: Worried about Juanqui

about pulling a hewitt...dont even think about comparing JCF to hewitt!!!!! JC is 1000000x more tennis player and person than him and please never ever compare him to hewitt again!! lol

i'm still worried about JC and will be until i see him play a match again. It was just really disheartening to see him during DC and that week before and he just looked so out of it and depressed

Re: Worried about Juanqui

i think we need to give him a little time...i hope he can just relax for a little while and i hope he doesn't keep reliving the davis cup matches...but i'm worried that they'll be constantly analysing them to try and improve his technique but while doing that it'll just make him more sad
i just want him to smileeeeeeeeeeee

Re: Worried about Juanqui

u didnt see how depressed he looked! but yeah i can see how you would think we're overreacting, we just need to give him some time, he's had a hard year and hes just probably tired and needs a break physically and mentally.

Good luck in 2004 JC

I agree with you guys. Juanqui didn't really have a good time at the Masters Cup , and for a moment I thought he was gonna win in DC ( taking the matches into deciding sets ) but his nerves got the better of him I guess.... or he was unlucky. It might be a blow to his confidence but he or rather we shouldn't give up on him!! He can bounce back!
C'mon Juanqui!
