Re: The Valencia Thread!

Rain delay... at least this gives JC some rest, considering he was saying that he was tired after Davis Cup win.

Re: The Valencia Thread!

ahm... rest? he'll have to play 2 matches in 1 day now.
But probably just two 2-setters, so it's not too bad.

Re: The Valencia Thread!

My initial thought is because he was too tired...I still dont kno for sure if that other guy played well, but I still think he was too tired from the match earlier against Ancic. Its not fair for one guy, who I mite add was the last one to finish his quaterfinal match out of the three, to be the first one out on court after only a few hours of rest. Well anyway, gd luck to JC in Monte Carlo!!!

Re: The Valencia Thread!

LOL Sharon I think you pretty much summed up all the possible reasons...

**************
From Eurosport:

Top seed Juan Carlos Ferrero said his shock defeat by fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in the semi-finals of his hometown tournament in Valencia was one of the worst performances of his career. "It was a very bad match," said Ferrero following his comprehensive 6-2 6-1 defeat on Saturday.

"I never found my rhythm and felt uncomfortable on the court.

"He (Verdasco) started very strongly, playing very well and I just went downhill after that. It was one of the worst days I've ever had in tennis."

Ferrero, who won the inaugural tournament last year, looked drained following a 6-4 6-4 victory over Mario Ancic of Croatia in a rain-delayed quarterfinal and was never able to cope with Verdasco's pin-point serves and powerful forehands.

**************

Rest well Juanqui, you've got a very tough draw in Monte Carlo.

He didn't mention how he felt physically, which is great because people will be all over him if he said anything about tired. But the press confirmed what I thought, that he's still not back in his form after chicken pot. If it is a hard fought match and he lost 7-5 7-5, then I would wonder more of why he lost. But him losing 6-1 6-2 on clay just tell me that he's not himself.

That's worrying anyway. It's a pretty tough draw in MC for him. It would be tough to defend his title even if he's in form. Now just complicates thing
