Exclamation Did you know ... ?

Fernando Gonzalez won Roland Garros as a junior in singles and doubles (w/Jose Antonio de Armas) (1998)
And he also won the US Open in doubles with Nicolas Massu (1997)


What do you guys think about this ???

I think is awesome I just hope that he can someday repeat his title in Roland Garros (or any slam) but now as a professional

I only remember Feña beat Ferrero becoz I like both of them.

I hope he can gain GS too,also get some AMS, and he needs lucks to have a better draw.

Re: Did you know ... ?

Feña has beaten Juanqui several times until RG2003 QF when Juanqui went on to win it... but they know each other well and respect each other -- they were so cute at the net I remember... love them both!

I just want Feña to take Amersfoort!

Nice pic, thanks and yes I knew that and like you all so hope that he'll win RG or any other GS now as a professional one day – that would be so fantastic.

And I remember RG 2003 and his QF match against Ferrero very well as I’m following Fernando since then and I especially liked the moment at the net with Ferrero. I just loved Fernando for the way he played and being able to react like this at the net after losing such a tight 5 setter.

For those of you who don’t remember here are some pictures of it:

Re: Did you know ... ?

What a cute picture from when they were kids!!!

And that match in 2003 between the two of them was hard to follow - I wanted them both of win. Of course Fena because he's my second favorite, but I also really like JC and felt that it was his time to win RG.

I'll never forget the look on Fena's face though after he lost - he was so devastated. I felt so horrid for him - it was such a tough loss.

That match was amazing ... Feña saved 4 match points in the last game

Re: Did you know ... ?

Let's use this thread to write some interesting facts about Feña, ok?

Here are some ...

1.- Fernando González is the only Chilean who has won to a number one in exercise, of the 18 confrontations that have happened since the Open Era began. González has obtained it in 2 occasions.

2.- Fernando González is the Chilean who has played more with a Nº1 of the world.

3.- Fernando González and Nicolás Massú have streets with their names, these are located in the Village "Olympic Gold" in Colina.

I'll be posting more soon ...
