Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

I first became a fan when Federer was my favourite player. I saw him play in the semi-finals of the 2004 australian open against Federer. I used to always cheer for Federer, but for some reason I cheered against Federer for this guy who I've never even heard of before. It didn't even matter to me that Ferrero lost, from that moment I really liked him, but I suppose I wasn't really that obsessed with him until 2004 Wimbledon because I stayed up till 3am just to see his results on TV, they didn't even bring him. Then I started following his career more closely

Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

I started watching the French Open in 2003 and I became I fan the first match I watched him play which was against Tim Henman, I was so happy when he won.

Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

At the French Open 2003. Well, that sounds like the classical bandwaggon-jumper. But there was a little bit more than that. The way he behaved after having won (that famous look towards the sky) made me immediately understand how much it meant to him.

This was a lesson right there to grasp. If you work hard and are persistent you can live your dream. JCF's tennis lacks Roger's elegance, Marat's power or Nadal's force. But he won a GS tourney with the means available to him, and this made me like the guy.

Besides, it is a question of credibility, not to quit when things turn sour.

OMG , pretty similiar to my story
i got fan of him when i first saw him as well - it was one match later i think it was against another spaniard
i saw the first spaniard and thought, not bad - then i heard the other player would be a so-called jc-ferrero, i'd already heard of that name before and i heard he was seeded very high - so i thought he has to be old and ugly so i decided to cheer for the other spaniard even before i saw jc - then he came on court and i was like: wow - how hot is THIS guy
it was love at first sight

why is it easier to hurt someone with words than with deeds?

Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

In 2000,I was a fan of Safin and Norman,but I was not a dedicated fan until I liked Ferrero.The day of 2000 Roland Garros Semifinal,I supposed the TV should broadcast Norman's match,but to my disappointment,it was Kuerten with Ferrero who I never heard his name before.I still decided to watch,and I found the guy who's looked like Solskjaer(a player of Man Utd)was charming,with his handsome face,bonny figure and magnificent forehand and backhand.At that time,I liked Beckham so much,so just had some good impression of Ferrero untill 2001 clay season,he played so good,sports news almost every day reported news like that"Ferrero continues his victory matches to XX. "With Roland Garros coming,I can't help concentrating on him more or less.The R4 was him against Enqvist,I waited just a result untill 1 am,at that moment,I became a big fan of him.

I'd actually never heard of him, good thing I didn't support Henman or I my not have liked him.

Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

I remember that Henman match. I was happy that JC was playing Tim because it meant the match would be live on BBC, here in England.

In fact, didn't Tim take the first set, or something? This was the year when JC was the favourite to win Roland Garros and I remember it was quite a shock.

yeah i remember watching that match, henman was playing well on clay at that time (it was the year before he made the semis at RG)
tim was mixing it up and going to the net and he took the first set but then JC got into the match and took it in 4

I was kinda annoyed cause I wanted to watch the cycling on Eurosport but the match was on so I couldn't.
