2007/2008 (off-season/preseason)

As far as I know, Juan will play these exhibition matches:
Quote:
30 November - 2 December Patagonia Open

7/8 December Indoor Master Tennis (Cordoba, ARG)

13-16 December Copa Argentina de Tenis Peugeot

I hope he had some nice time-off to recover from the hardworking 2007 season.
From what I understand from a GRIP magazine interview (after the RG?), at the beginning of the season, he aimed at finishing the year around 35th. He did it as 23rd, with the highest being 19th.
There are many points to defend but at the same time many to attack - vamos, Juan!


So, here, let's talk about his past/coming season and the time in between (exhibitions, etc.).



EDIT: In Patagonia Open, Juan will play the winner Mariano(Zabaleta)/Guzman on 1st Dec. And TyC Sports will televise the matches - wish I were in Argentina...

Juan lost to Horna in the Patagonia Open Final.

Hope he had some fun on and off court.

Re: 2007/2008 (off-season/preseason)

From what Juan said before the final:

Quote:
"Ganar en Neuquén sería muy bueno para cerrar un año que fue estupendo para mí. Los tres títulos que logré en el circuito me dieron mucha confianza y a apuntar a un objetivo en el 2008: llegar a ser top ten", aseguró Mónaco.

http://www.rionegro.com.ar/diario/20...02s13.php?nc=1


Top 10 - go for it, Juan!


==============================================


Juan is nominated for "premios Olimpia 2007". Canas and Nalbandian, too. (http://www.laprensa.com.ar/secciones...tp=11&no=84732)

Frankly, I don't think Juan is going to win it this year - maybe next year?

"¿Te pasó alguna vez de tener que compartir habitación con el rival del día siguiente?"
"En Profesionales no, cada uno tiene su habitación. Pero a nivel Challengers y Futures muchas veces me pasó de tener que dormir con el tipo con el que al otro día tenía que jugar. ¡Lo quería matar! Es una sensación rarísima porque lo mínimo que pensás es: "Espero que este pibe duerma mal así tengo más chances de ganar". Y lo pensás aunque sea tu amigo. Siempre esperás que le pase algo al otro". (Juan Mónaco)

Quote:
–Mónaco, ¿qué pensás de la estructura del tenis nacional?

–No veo un apoyo como el que debería haber. Estoy totalmente en contra de la Asociación Argentina de Tenis (AAT). A mí, en su momento, me dijeron que me iban a ayudar con un equipo de alto rendimiento y nunca me llamaron. Todo era para (Guillermo) Coria y (David) Nalbandian. Eso era lo que te hacían sentir. Ni siquiera a Chucho (José Acasuso) le dieron una mano, que era un crack. Nunca me sentí apoyado por la AAT cuando creo que tendría que haber sido ayudado porque era uno de los mejores de mi categoría. Por no existir una buena estructura me tuve que ir a España.

English translation of the ESPN article about a book "La Legión habla":

Article: Nalbandian, Coria, Gaudio, and others speak about the other side of tennis
