hi people,

i saw this on the guille thread, and i really wanted to post in it, but since it was about guille i couldn't, so i thought i'd make a new thread. What are your Juan Carlos Ferrero Fantasies? I've had quite a few. If anyone has been to Melbourne,then you'd probably have been to the atrium at the crown casino. If you haven't it's a lovely place. They have indoor waterfalls, a huge roof with imitation crystals hanging down, and a huge staircase. Anyway, my fantasy is that i was standing at the bottom of the stairs looking at the waterfall. Then i look at the stairs and JC is coming down the stairs wearing a white suit. He starts talking to me, and then he gets down on one knee and proposes, and of course i accept and we live happily ever after. A bit crazy, but it would be nice.

"Ferrero darling, stay a bit longer there" - I bet you had many such dreams as well. But anyways, I liked it.

i'm reviving this thread as i had very strange dream about Juanqui last night. I dreamt that Juanqui got to the final of wimbledon ( :lol: not likely) where he had to play agassi but when we woke up the morning of the final everywhere was covered with thick snow. i kept insisting that they would cancel the final but the official refused and said they had to play the match on skis. The last thing i saw before my alarm woke me was Juanqui in his tennis clothes, with a hat,scarf, gloves and skis on trying to serve. Weird huh

i used 2 have dreams about jc all the time. one was where he was practising on a tennis court at a hotel out the road & i was watching him & one of the balls came over the fence and i grabbed it & wouldn't give it back so he gave me a 'wtf' look and got me 'removed' by security! the cheek!

lately marat has been in my dreams, but i really dont know why! in one he was telling me & my friends to skip school and go to my friends treehouse...she dosent hav a treehouse in reality btw. damn u marat get outta my dreams and bring back jc!

LOOOOOOOOL @ jogg :D

i once had a dream about me n a friend of mine at RG :D
we were on the tribunes, and outside of d stadium there was a cafe, juan carlos sat there next so sébastien grosjean, n i knew it, but strangely enough i didnt go there n i just stayed in the tribunes (which were quite empty btw) and i was screeming "allez sébastien" all d time, but he wasnt even playing, so i dont know why i was screeming that
when d day was over we got outside of the stadium and the way home was via the cafe, and jc and seb still sat there, and i said "allez sebastien" once more (not so loud this time) when i was very close to jc's and seb's table, and as i passed the table i heard jc saying "hey, thats the girl who was always screeming your name!"
and i looked over my shoulder and jc was looking at me and smiling a bit
n i looked back in front of me but then i thought 'carole you fool, why did you just break eye contact with juan carlos ferrero!?' so i looked back, he was still looking, then i looked back in front of me so that i wudnt fall or something, but i wanted to know wether he was still watching me or not, so i looked back a third time n he was still looking & smiling a bit:)
and then i said out loud "NEXT YEAR IM COMING TO SEE ALL FERRERO'S MATCHES!" so that he'd hear it:)

it was a good dream :)

Heaven forbid our Juanqui should ever get sick but, if he wasn't feeling well, I'd like to comfort him and take care of him so he can be well again and do everything he wants to do "tennistically." (That sounds a little sick in itself, doesn't it, but it's not meant to be. I like him and hope he stays well.)

Edda

I would like to write the story of his life. I don't know if it would ever get published, but it would be fun to do. The article I read on his life was truly touching. He has overcome so much to become a great champion and a nice guy.

Letter to Juanqui:

Dear Juan Carlos Ferrero Donat,

Your story has touched me deeply. I am a great fan of Spanish tennis players and have read about your life and career. I am a writer and tennis fan and would like to write the story of your life. I was touched by your love for your family and how you took inspiration from your mother. It is sad to think that once you thought of giving up tennis altogether, but I can understand how sad you must have been. I am glad that you chose to stay in your sport and dedicated your victories to your mother. Your mother would be very proud of the man you have become, not only as a great tennis champion but also as a very kind, loving person.

I wish you luck in your latest tournament in Hamburg, Germany. I hope you win.

Your fan,

Edda Bevilacqua

No, but I would love to go to one someday. I would love to see Juanqui, or Rafa or Roger Federer. The crowd noise would probably be way too much for me, though. However, I could handle it if I could get to meet one of my favorite players.

A lifetime of tennis addiction had culminated for Spanish born Eva Catalano in this moment of a lifetime. The 45-year old Spanish/Catalan woman was back in her country of birth watching the 2009 Davis Cup semifinal between Spain and Israel. Rafael Nadal had been unable to participate due to injury, but another one of her favorite players, Juan Carlos Ferrero Donat, was about to play. Eva knew everything about "Juanqui," as he was called. The name was a consolidation of his first two names, given to him by his mother, Rosario, in honor of King Juan Carlos I. He was also called "The Mosquito," a name Juanqui himself didn't particularly like. The name was given to him because of his speed and quickness. Eva preferred to think of him as a cat-quick, graceful, slender and beautiful.

Eva had collected a large body of knowledge on "Juanqui" who, as stated, was named for his nation's monarch by his mother in hopes that her son would one day aspire to greatness. He indeed went on to excel in many fields: former world number one tennis player; Davis Cup hero for Spain in 2000; hotel and tournament owner and loving son and brother. He was also, like Eva, a pet owner. Eva had a cat and Juanqui had dogs. She knew Juan Carlos was born in Onteniente/Onteniyent on February 12, 1980. His parents were Eduardo Ferrero and Rosario Donat de Ferrero. His sisters, both older, were Ana and Laura. Little "Juanqui" first picked up a tennis racquet when he was very small. By age nine, he became a strong player. He was very shy at first, but quickly turned into a good player and a very competitive young man, always striving to be the best.

This shyness was something Eva knew well, for she, like Juanqui, was shy. She was diagnosed at age two in Spain with autism. Doctors said she was smart, but lacked social skills. She was called "high functioning," but doctors still wanted her put away. She overcame most of her difficulties by age four, moved to the United States, and began school as a so-called "normal" and very intelligent girl. She grew up to become a teacher of autistic children, both in the United States and for one year in Barcelona, Spain, at the same school she attended as a young girl. Today, one couldn't guess anything was different about Eva, as she went on to attend medical school and is now, as Eva Catalano, helping autistic children in a medical capacity. Her husband, Jordi Catalano, is also a recovered autistic young person and attended the Casals' School (not the famous tennis academy) with Eva in Barcelona when they were children. One thing Eva felt she didn't possess was tennis talent. She claimed she would hit herself on the head with the racquet! Actually, she did take lessons and played quite well, but not on the level of a Rafael Nadal or a Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Eva had read a great deal about famous people who supposedly shared her diagnosis, later revised as Asperger Syndrome (AS). She thought the descriptions of famous individuals being on the spectrum was nonsense, for the most part. She noticed that no athletes were part of that list, because, the experts said, "Asperger's is incompatible with athletic ability." However, she could think of a couple of possibilities: Roger Bannister, the British miler and physician, Paavo Nurmi, the reclusive Finnish long distance runner and-maybe, just maybe...
No! She didn't want to entertain the possibility: JUANQUI? The "experts" analyzing Juanqui might notice his shyness, discomfort during interviews, sensitivity to loud noises (the Hormiguero seemed to make Juan Carlos quite uncomfortable) and, occasionally, that faraway look in his eyes. He was also a bit awkward while dancing, although very graceful on the tennis court. Did the child who was "Juanqui" feel out of place growing up? What frightened him? Did he have any unusual interests? Did he make friends easily?

"Stop!" Eva told herself. There's not a thing in this world wrong with Juan Carlos! He's everything the "experts" in the field of autism believed he couldn't possibly be. He's a professional tennis player and owns a hotel and a tennis tournament. He drives fast cars. He has friends and is a loving son and brother. "Experts" evaluating Juanqui would say he shouldn't be able to do any of these things.

Was Juanqui ever diagnosed with anything in Spain? Doubtful. Most likely, he grew up thinking he was "different," all the while, moving toward an extraordinary path in life to become a champion tennis player. Juan Carlos was perfect, seeming to have almost anything. The only frustration in his life seemed to be in romantic relationships, in finding a nice woman to marry and share his life forever. Eva hoped that one day this would happen for Juan Carlos, that he would find a woman who loved him for the sweet and special man he was.

I wrote that story one night when I couldn't sleep. Actually, I haven't slept well in over a year. I think Juanqui and I have that in common-terrible insomnia. If I spent time with him, we could both yell at those stupid kids outside his house to shut up! I hope word of this story never gets to Juanqui. He'd be very embarrassed at even the suggestion of anything being wrong with him-which there isn't. This story is as much about people who are quick to label others as it is a Juanqui fantasy story. The character, Eva, was part of a book I wrote long ago entitled A Work in Progress, about two Spanish/Catalan young people who overcame autism in their childhoods and grew up to lead very accomplished lives. Juanqui himself overcame shyness to excel in his field.

Edda
08-10-2010, 03:59 AM
I write a lot of odd things involving Juanqui, it seems, when I can't sleep. One story contained a dream sequence where Juanqui got sick and had to go to the hospital to have his tonsils out. He was worn out after a practice session and was running a temperature. Juanqui was sent to bed and examined by the Spanish team physician. He was very reluctant to go to the hospital, since his mother passed away when Juanqui was just 16. His friend and business partner, David Ferrer, arrived asking how he could be of help to Juanqui. Both wound up in the hospital! I don't know why illness factors into my stories. I suppose it is because I hate hospitals and writing about it allays my fear.

Really weird, I know. I hope Juanqui doesn't get sick, but I'd visit him in the hospital if he ever did.

I don't know why illness factors into my stories. I am not a morbid person. I like Juan Carlos and am concerned about him. I hope he feels better soon and can participate in tournaments again. I remember being concerned about Rafa when he was going through his injury problems and coping with the divorce of his parents last year. When I like someone, or just respect them a lot, I care what happens to them. I also celebrate their victories.

08-12-2010, 02:20 AM
Things are a little bit better today. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal won their matches. Unfortunately, David Ferrer lost his. I still have two of favorites.

Aw, I heard Juanqui isn't feeling well! Rest well and drink plenty of fluids. As a tennis player, he knows proper hydration is important. As for staying in bed, that's probably harder. I'm sure he probably gets bored lying around in bed instead of practicing on court.

Edda
08-21-2010, 03:43 PM

I had a strange dream about Juanqui last night. I was at the cafeteria at some tennis tournament sitting down to eat lunch when Juanqui came up to me and asked, "Would you like to eat with me?" I wondered why someone like Juanqui would spend time with me, but I accepted.

I had another dream about Juanqui in which I met him. As time went on, it was apparent he wasn't well. He had a high fever and was exhausted. Maybe I was thinking of Rafa's recent illness. Someone always seems to be getting sick on tour. The ones I know of so far this year: Nando, Rafa and Tomas Berdych. The Czech has been sick twice now.

My dreams always seem to be anxious ones lately. Now they're extending to my favorite tennis players. Oh, no!

Edda
03-02-2011, 01:23 AM
I had a dream that wasn't about Juanqui per se, but it did have to do with tennis. Somebody called me and asked if I wanted to play tennis on the weekend. I don't even know how to play, but if someone like Juanqui could teach me, I would try.

Edda
03-03-2011, 01:28 AM
I had another tennis-related dream. Juanqui was accepting an award (I may have been thinking of Rafa's recent Laureus Award at the time) and there was a dance afterward. (That part may have been related to Juanqui's appearance on the Spanish talk show Hormiguera. Poor Juanqui looked so uncomfortable there and I thought the host seemed rude to him.)

Another tennis/Juanqui related dream:

I was talking to some people on the way to a tennis tournament and we were discussing Juanqui. One of the people I was with said her last name was Donat, which is the maternal side of Juanqui's family. I have weird dreams.

Edda
11-11-2011, 12:36 AM
I was watching tennis and typing on the computer, with my cat, Peter, sitting on my lap when I was called downstairs. Somebody told me there was someone special who wanted to see me. "Who could it be?" I thought. I got downstairs and saw a tall, slender young man on the other side of the door. I invited him in. He said, "You have wanted to see me for a long time. Somebody told me you liked watching me play tennis. I am Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain. My friends call me Juanqui."

I thought I would faint. Juanqui then presented me with some tickets to the Davis Cup match in Spain. "A present for you, Edda." I was going to Spain! How exciting!

Edda
12-25-2011, 07:18 PM
It was Christmas Day. I was told I had a very special present. What could it be? I already had everything I wanted. No, they told me, this was really special. You have a special guest at your party. Just then, Juan Carlos Ferrero came in.

"Feliz Navidad, Edda," Juan Carlos said with his sweet Spanish accent.

"Feliz Navidad, Juan Carlos and Bon Nadal to Rafa and Ferru, too."

Juan Carlos said, "Speaking of them, here they are now."

I about fainted! All my favorite Armada boys were there!

(Oh, I could dream, couldn't I?)
