Cheering thread for Juan Balcells!

My favourite player, the nicest guy on the ATP tour, and owner of the best sideburns in sport...




good luck in the second round of Amsterdam after a handy win over 6th seed Fernado Gonzalez in the first...

boo! bad luck today for Joan; after beating Flavio Saretta 6/2 7/5 in the second round, he lost 7/6(7) 6-3 to Juan-Ignacio Chela in the QFs. Not a bad week though, all in all.

Appologies for my ignorance on the matter, but is it 'Joan' or 'Juan'?

Or are they the same thing, but one is in Spanish, and the other is Anglo-sized?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Joan is the Catalan way of saying Juan, and is pronounced like the English girls name Joanne, rather than Joan...

Actually, I saw him first, but never mind

Is he injured right now, does anyone have any news? He hasnt played any US open warm-ups to the best of my knowledge.
