Davis Cup against Russia in Malaga 2000!!!

I just recall this wondrous instant:
You have arrived before my face --
A vision, fleeting in a distance,
A spirit of the pure grace.

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

yes, Juanqui beat the then No 1 to become the new No 1! it was so exciting!!!! just a shame he lost to Pandy but I don't think he was thought of as the USO finalist back then! he really exceeded expectations there! but the rain delays didn't help as he had to play at least 3-4 days back-to-back while the schedule favoured both AA and Pandy... I was so mad at the time... but 2003 was Juanqui's best year -- no wonder he was exhausted by Dec. DC final v. Australia... and then he got the chicken pox...

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

He reached No. 1 in the race with the victory in Madrid, thereby becoming the undisputed No. 1 in both entry ranking and the race. He was No.1 in the race immediately after winning RG, too, but it's definitely a greater achievement to reach the top spot in the both tables at the same time.
Also, it was at the Madrid Masters that he received the chrystal shield for No. 1 player in the entry ranking. It usually takes a few weeks after reaching No. 1.

As everyone said, that USO semifinal 2003 was the best match JC played outside clay. He was just breathtaking that day.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

I'm not a proper fan, but I like him. I just saw this thread and it reminded me of this:

I knew I liked the guy when I saw this photo for the first time

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

I started liking Juan Carlos Ferrero when I saw him in the 2009 Davis Cup semifinal. I became interested in the man named after the King of Spain, and wanted to learn more about him. He is a nice guy and a great player. The pictures of him look very sweet.

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

I would love to get a tape of one of Juanqui's greatest matches. I saw him play at Acapulco against countryman David Ferrer and enjoyed seeing that match very much. I like both men because they are both very nice and always very excited to represent their country wherever they go. I like Juanqui's quiet reserve, which has been misrepresented as lack of excitement. Not everyone preens and struts, an attitude I can't stand. I think people can have an inner pride in their accomplishments without always puffing themselves up.

We've got some videos:

Juanqui's videos .....

I've also got recordings of some of his best Wimbledon victories but I don't know how to upload them. I got them from the official website (I had to pay for them) so I think there's a rights issue.
