Lightbulb Ferrero eyes Olympics

[From BBC Sport]




Spain's Juan Carlos Ferrero has set his sights on claiming the Olympic title in Athens next year.

The French Open champion has decided to play in the Olympic Games despite the fact that the US Open takes place less than a week later.

"I think I have the opportunity to win a medal next year," said Ferrero. "I want to play because in four more years I will be 28 years old."

Australian Lleyton Hewitt has already decided not to compete in the Olympics.

The former world number one decided not to go to Athens because it would interfere with his schedule which has been organised around Grand Slams and the Davis Cup.


Ferrero will begin his hectic season at the Sydney International tournament which begins on 12 January.

The world number three had considered skipping the Australian Open to give himself a well-earned rest but Ferrero is determined to keep the momentum going.

"I have to defend a lot of ranking points in Australia," said Ferrero.

"So I have to progress to play at the same level as this year because I played very well."

Good Luck Juan Carlos Ferrero, Novak Djokovic, David Nalbandian, Richard Gasquet!

He's definitely right about him having a chance to win a medal... let's hope it's a gold one.

I hope Juanqui won't be too exhausted after the Olympics. And I also hope he won't have to play any matches in a row without a day off like what he did this year at USO!!
