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

I watched him in 2003 when I was 15. fell in love with him on first sight(actually I thought that he had the sexiest pair of legs I ever saw).Learnt the rules of tennis so I could cheer for him. Took me a while because no one in my house wanted to watch tennis or even explain it to me. Later I managed to convert my sister from a soccer crazy fan to a tennis lover and more importantly a Juanqi Lover. Even my younger sister who is about seventeen thinks Jc is cute and she HATES tennis.
Juanqi made me see the light.

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

Hi I'm Di I've been a fan of Juanqui since 2002 French Open. I felt so sorry for him when he lost to Costa in the final, but was so glad he got to win it in 2003. I've been following him ever since. I so want him to win another title.

Thanks for the memories Juan Carlos

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

Just realised I haven't posted on this thread yet.

I first watched Juanqui play in the match in my avatar---the Masters Cup round robin match with Goran in YEC Sydney 2001.
I was a big Goran fan from 1994 (I still am), so naturally I was rooting for Goran. I knew Ferrero was one of top youngsters, but didn't know much else. Also, I have to confess that at that time I was one of those Wimbledon fanatics; I had this very biased idea about Spanish players and those excel on clay, although I had hardly watched any match on clay at that point. (Yes, now I'm ashamed of myself back then. )
BUT that day I was pleasantly surprised that JC was playing extremely well on an indoor court, and I enormously enjoyed the match although Goran lost in two tie break sets. Actually, this was the first time I didn't feel that crap that Goran lost, partly because Goran was clearly enjoying the match and also because JC played fantastically, and he was so cute! It was a top-notch eye candy match I tell you!
From that day, JC became my top favourite young player (I was of course loyal to Goran, too ) and I started following JC's career. Very soon he became my top guy along Goran, and I learned how exciting clay court tennis can be.
So I'm very grateful to JC for opening the door for me for this whole new world of
clay court tennis, which I now love very much. But for him, I would still have been one of those prejudiced, ignorant people who think fast court tennis is the best and clay is boring without watching it properly. The point is that Juanqui can play on all surfaces, and that's why he colud convert me.
That's why this Sydney match means so much to me.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

Anyway this is my introduction albeit in a strange manner.
Interesting. Thanks for that , and welcome.

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

Hi everyone!
I became a fan when I saw the highlights of his match against Agassi from their 2003 US Open match. Back then, I didn't really know much about tennis but I had heard of Agassi (and I thought he was invincible). So when I heard that someone had beaten him, I was really surprised. And when I saw Ferrero's shot through the legs, I was .
He became my favourite player and has been ever since.

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

Hi Jamjar. That Ferrero-Agassi US Open SF in 2003 was incredible wasn't it. I was lucky to enough to watch that match live. JCF was in stunning form that day, and he had to be to see off Agassi who himself was playing so well and was absolutely formidable on hardcourts.
Yes Agassi lobbed him and then he hit that awesome passing shot through the legs. In my opinion that is the 2nd best performance from JCF that I ever seen, and he secured the world no. 1 ranking after that victory as well .

Didn't he secure his number one ranking after beating Massu in the Madrid final. I know it was on September 8 2003, but I thought it was in Madrid.

It was definately the Agassi victory at New York that secured the no. 1 ranking for him.
September 8 was the day after the US Open finished, and going into the final against Roddick, it was already comfirmed that he would take top spot the next day, regardless of whether he won or lost.
The Madrid Masters in 2003 was held from October 13-19.
