Second Seed Ferrero Withdraws

Second-seeded Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain has withdrawn from the Pacific Life Open, it was announced today by tournament officials. Ferrero has contracted chickenpox and will not compete here because of the illness.

Ferrero, who is No. 2 in the INDESIT ATP Entry Rankings, will be replaced in the main draw by Jeff Salzenstein as the “Lucky Loser.” Salzenstein was the highest-ranked player to lose in the final round of the qualifying draw. By rule, he moves into the draw spot formerly occupied by Gaston Gaudio of Argentina, who is awarded the No. 33 seed and replaces Ferrero’s spot on the bottom line of the draw.

Tournament physician Dr. Ken Anderson examined Ferrero at his local hotel room on Wednesday and diagnosed the illness.

“I found out yesterday that I had the chickenpox,” said Ferrero from his hotel room on Thursday afternoon. “Sometimes things happen and you can’t do anything about it. I am disappointed because I was looking forward to playing here.”

Salzenstein will play wild card Alex Bogomolov Jr in the first round, while Gaudio receives a bye into the second round and will face the winner of Wayne Ferreira vs. Igor Andreev.

Main draw play at the Pacific Life Open begins on Friday and continues through Sunday, March 21.

Re: Second Seed Ferrero Withdraws

Is there enough time for him to recover for Miami or he will miss that one too?

He who has no luck. Get well soon.

Get well soon, Juan Carlos! This is a loss for the tournament, but a personal loss too.

The older you are, the more serious it is. That's why it's good to get it out of your system when you're a wee-baby.

Chicken pox... hope its going to get beta for miami, cos i don't want him to miss out on that as well. It was his chance to gain pts in the entry system.. and also in the champion race.

Re: Second Seed Ferrero Withdraws

there were suggestions in another thread that there are medicine for a quicker recovery or less suffering cos chicken pox can be quite straining on the body.....but then again with reference to the recent doping cases...i'm not sure if he is encouraged to take these medicine...i just hope he can recover in time for clay season...nevermind about miami cos he doesn't have much points to defend....take care JC!!!

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?
