Still a good tournament for Juan

It would be great to see him back in Top 8.

I saw 4 matches of him in this Open and I think his ground strokes are coming back, he's been more aggressive than last year and fear less to take advantage of short balls. And this match against Federer is the most aggressive match I've seen since his comeback last year. So he's regaining his shots, but mentally he's still not there, that's why he can't take chances of the break points and serve a df on set point.

But to me this is all becuz he hasn't played too many big matches last year, the 4 grand slams he played, he didn't play it that well, no big scenario. And this is his first QF in a Grand Slam since his comeback, this is huge, and he's nervous. But he is regaining his form, remember the 2009 QF? The same guy across the net, and he was in great form in 2009, and he only took 3 games outta Federer. This year, he's not in the same form (well Federer isn't neither), and he took 9 (well...), this says he is coming back step after step. So I'm looking forward to the rest of his years, after his ranking's rise, he shouldn't face some big players in the 1st few rounds so this gives him a chance to play himself deep into every single tournament.

Well but no matter what happened we still love him, that's the most important part.

Thanks for your input since all I have watched were highlights. And as I stated after Davis Cup it seemed mental strength was lacking. Here is hoping that his QF appearance gives him confidence to move on and up.

Check the first post please. I will try and keep up but I lead a pretty busy life so won't always have an opportunity to do so. If you need to update the first post/title contact Carlita who can do it for you or even myself but no guarantees that I will see as soon as you post. Thanks

In addition- feel free everyone to start your own cheering thread for tournaments as I won't be around much to keep things updated. I will certainly try and merge any threads at some point. Enjoy cheering for JM.

He can be very good in Rotterdam. Courts are good for his serve, if it works.

Hopefully he will do very well in Rotterdam and Marseille and then skip Dubai to get ready for IW/Miami. I think playing 3 weeks in a row is a bit much, even for a 23-year-old.

Totally agree. He needs a good schedule for this year.

Doesn't IW usually start the second round on the weekend? So he'd get a little break, but still have to deal with time change with getting there.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.
