Hi RogiFan. Ya, he's cute in that pic. Love his smile. I laugh when I first saw him and Pat dancing with Ballerinas. Not that it looks bad or anything, just unexpected. Nonetheless, not too shabby for a beginner. And I bet that ballerina wants an encore.

:)

Juanqui handed out trophies for the Vuelta Ciclista de Espana -- Spain's cycling tour [on now]. He's often invited to do these sporty things! He also hangs w Sergio Garcia and says Sergio is a pretty good tennis player -- they both come from the Valencia region.

Did I mention on this board that I was in Spain 2000? Well, I was not in Barcelona and not in Dec. I was in the South [my fave area of Spain -- it's amazing!] and it was Oct so I could not have gone to the DC. Besides I heard the tix sold out IMMEDIATELY. Que lastima! What a pity!

131. Tacchini put Juanqui's name on his jacket.
132. He left Nike to sign Tacchini, good choice because way too many tennis players are sponsored by Nike.
133. In end of 2000, he set his goal to be in the Top 5 in 2001 and he did that. His 2001 year end ranking is N0. 5, just points away from the No. 4 spot.
134. Since turning pro in 98, he won 6 ATP titles including 2 TMS and was in 6 finals.
135. He didn't play Wimby in 2000 because he wanted to support his fellow countrymen to boycott Wimby for disregarding players ranking.
136. He played Wimby since, because he wants to be able to play on all surfaces.
137. His goal is to win RG and he won't be satisfied until he reached his goal.
138. His ultimate goal is to be number 1.
139. He loves cars and loves driving around the mountains in his home town.
140. When he lost Dubai final in 2000, he was sad to lose the opportunity to own the car the organizer gave to the winner.
141. He has bad taste in film cos he likes Titanic, but we still love him. :p

Your spanish is better than me, so I'll take that explanation. :)
That makes sense, since he's the youngest in the family. I love seeing his father, he looks so classy and very gentlemanly. No wonder Juanqui is so well bought-up.

:) Yep, that's right -- little boy or little child! I saw his father and sisters last year (news only) and they looked so cool!! Juanqui IS well brought-up! He's such a good little boy!!

Marat really deserved to win today!! Will be great for his confidence but watch out guys! He is indeed back!

So many cool and lovely guys this year in Shanghai: Marat, Juanqui, Rogi, Carlos... :drool:

3. Platz Juan Carlos Ferrero

“Bronze” fur den Spanier – ein eher uberraschendes Urteil unserer Leser, wie wir finden. Denn ein Beau ist Juan Carlos Ferrero nicht. Auch ist seine Korpergrosse von 1,83 Meter nicht sonderlich beeindruckend. Und die Ausstrahlung halt sich auch in Grenzen. Im Fernsehen kommt der dunkelblonde Sandplatzwuhler eher ruhig ruber. Allerdings ist Moskito, wie ihn seine spanischen Amigos rufen, ein bisschen extravagant. Juan Carlos liebt Spielcasinos und fahrt in seiner Freizeit dicke Harleys. Ausserdem: Er rasiert seine Beine. Wer drauf steht…

I guess Allerdings is nickname... he's a "dunkelblonde"! :p

"bronze" fur the Spaniard - a rather uberraschendes judgement of our readers, as we find. Because a Beau is not Juan Carlo Ferrero. Also its Korpergrosse of 1.83 is not particular meters impressing. And the radiant emittance stop itself also within limits. In the television the dark-blond Sandplatzwuhler comes rather calmly more ruber. However mosquito, as its Spanish Amigos call it, is extravagant a little. Juan Carlo loves Spielcasinos and drives in its spare time thick Harleys. In addition: It shaves its legs.

Gotta check out that WTA thing...

I just looked at some pic of Juanqui recently and noticed his legs were quite smooth...

Now I wonder why Juanqui would do that? Maybe to be aerodynamic??? Like the cyclists?? Or swimmers??

But then again, Juanqui does some strange things to his HAIR, doesn't he?! :p [I won't delve into this any further... ]

11-05-2002, 07:55 PM
I don't want to try guess why. But I know Baldy shaved his chest, so that he can look better when he changes on the court. I think some men thinks hairy is good, and some men don't. Juanqui is pretty stylish, I think he does care about his appearance, afterall, he is a young man under public eyes.

BTW, he must have shave his legs in public, so I'm sure he doesn't mind ppl to know and which to me, it means that there may be some athletic reason behind. Anyway, I said I won't guess...his legs are to die for. (how many times I mentioned that I love skinny legs:D )

:D Good one, Vera!!

As for Juanqui... and Rogi... that's a totally different story!

Here's the ROGI descrip [though I posted this already in the Rogi forum]:

7. Platz Roger Federer

Seine Mutter Lynette ist Sudafrikanerin, und wie Roger Federer im heissen Sand so daliegt, erinnert er ein bisschen an einen der bekanntesten Promis am Kap: Howard Carpendale. Allerdings: Ein “Hello Again” braucht man ihm nicht zuzurufen. Er war nie weg. Stattdessen sturmte er mit schweizer Prazision der Rangliste als ware sie das Matterhorn. Bei den weiblichen Fans ist er langst oben angekommen. Sie lieben den schonen Roge mit der langen, wehenden Mahne, weil er so eine ruhige Ausstrahlung hat. Echt cool, wie er damals in Wimbledon Pete Sampras abfiedelte. Erfolg macht eben verfurhrerisch.

Hackie: let's see what convoluted pseudo-English translation we get!!! I can't wait!
:D

ILR
11-05-2002, 08:14 PM
I think Hackies gone but.........

Its mother Lynette is so lies there Sudafrikanerin, and like Roger feather in the hot sand, remembered it a little at one of the best known Promis at the cape: Howard Carpendale. To be sure: a “Hello Again” one does not need to shout it. It never was away. Instead sturmte it with Swiss Prazision of the rank list as a ware it the Matterhorn. In the feminine fans, it arrived most long above. They love would warn the already Roge with the long, blowing because it has so a quiet radiation. Really cool, like it at that time in Wimbledon Pete Sampras abfiedelte. Success makes just verfurhrerisch.

Vera
11-05-2002, 08:17 PM
Okay, this is not really English, is it? I don't have a clue. The translation thing works worse in translating German, usually.

RogiFan
11-05-2002, 08:37 PM
:confused: That translation makes it even more difficult to understand!!! What a riot! :D

I think they are saying sort of:

his mom is South-African he likes the hot/warm sand [i.e., beaches] who the hell is howard carpendale?? they say sth re: Swiss precision and his ranking and the Matterhorn [stereotyping] i think they mention the female fans, his long mane of hair and sth about beating sampras at wimby and how cool it is and therefore how cool rogi is also maybe that he's seductive or sth equally sexy... whatever! :rolleyes: :p

let's make up our own translation!

Vera
11-05-2002, 08:44 PM
That sounds fine, let's go with that then.

I just went back to the JC's one. The whole thing doesn't sound too complimentary to me. His height is not impressive??? Why, how tall should he be? Good enough for me. Okay, where's my German when I need the most.

RogiFan
11-05-2002, 09:20 PM
:) Very good question, Vera! Juanqui looks tall enough to me [or for me]! So he shaves his legs... ! There are worse things in a man! He's not a Beau? Do these voters need glasses or what! I'll take a dunkelblonde Sandplatzwuhler any day!

BTW, the pic they chose was not interesting [not that it didn't show Juanqui in a good light, but it was an oncourt photo] -- they should have shown him offcourt, preferably shirtless [they had a shirtless pic of andy...]. There are SO many hot photos of Juanqui to choose from!! What do these people know anyway?!

The photo of Marat was nice -- on a motorcycle looking cute/sexy. Haas' photo is w his GF -- he's wearing a suit. COuld have had a better pic of Alex too, not just oncourt!! But the BEST pic was of ROGI!!!! Lying on the beach -- in a white suit w a flowered shirt and his lovely "R" gold necklace... :drool: :drool:

They (the media) does this a lot. Everyone seems to see Juan Carlos in a "awww, *so cute*, wouldn't he make a great brother?!" sort of light--like he's asexual or something :rolleyes:

Not that I mind that Ferrero is so far under the "hot boys" radar, I kinda like only having to share him with a few people.

Hehehe, they always say great minds think alike. And we just have good taste. :) We could compose our own sexy list.

I agree too, Hackie. He is like the brother type to most ppl. I don't mind that ppl don't think he's a sex symbol. In fact, I hate it when a guy gets the sex symbol thing hanging on his neck, to me, it's demeaning. But Juanqui, everything I see in him, I like. I don't mind to be different, I just know that I'm with good company.

Have you read Deuce? They had this thing where they asked some girls (20ish) to rate the hottest players in a "tournament" of sorts. Juan Carlos lost to James, if I remember correctly, in like the second round. They all said, "Oh, he looks like my cousin! I couldn't date my cousin!"

But I agree, he just exudes some quality that I find intensely appealing. Maybe it's because he hasn't embraced his public self and tried to exaggerate it (a la Roddick--I liked Roddick last year, I liked his enthusiasm and his energy on court, but the hype has gotten to him and he's changed, which is sad for US men's tennis :(). Maybe it's because he doesn't complain a lot or get into bitchfights about stupid things. Maybe it's because he just goes out there and does his thing, and when he gets confident (Roland Garros) he just plays even better.

I can't quite put my finger on it ;)

Yeah, I read that! I was not at all impressed w that article -- why didn't they choose a more diverse group of women?? Their results sucked for the most part. Also, I found the mag to be overly American-biased [what else is new!]. Do they plan on doing another issue? If so, I should make some suggestions. At least they had an article on Rogi. Juanqui does go out there and do his job -- no fussing around, no mindgames, no primadonna behaviour [like someone we know]. He's pretty mature for his age -- a testament to his upbringing!! ;)

As far as I know, they are going to do another Deuce next year. It's supposed to be "the annual magazine of the ATP" :rolleyes: I agree, it was really American-biased but overall, not half bad for a magazine about tennis. Disappointing coming from the ATP, but not too bad if you consider all of the tennis mags out there.

Yes, please do complain, I'm sure they're planning a HUGE "return of Pete Sampras" section for next year :rolleyes::fiery::mad:

Vera
11-05-2002, 10:08 PM
As a matter of fact, I did read Deuce. I bought it bcos they have Juan Carlos in it. See, I don't buy any "Tennis" Magazine, bcos Tennis only have Roddick, Sampras, JMG, Andre, and Roddick and Sampras...very rarely do they ever mention JC...

Anyway, you see, the picture they use in that article, with him in a helmet. WTF, I have to say his pic is very not appealing. And I think they deliberately use a bad picture. No wonder he lost so badly. Juanqui has a boyish look, so I'm not surprised of the result...Though, looking at Roddick, he looks so immature and I think he's worse than my teenage cousin...

I think I'm first impressed by his poise on court, never affected by his surrounding. He looks skinny but he has so much power which is surprising. And yes, he's not overwhelmed by success, still lives in his little town and....well, just everything about him impresses me.

The mag. is not too bad, bcos I only read the articles about Rafter, the Spaniards, Rogi, DC French team and all the winners of the TMS at the back since JC is one of them. So I say half of the stuffs is enjoyable. ATP is controlled by Americans, that's my impression.

Unfortunately, you know when Petey and Agassihole retire they are going to have an even bigger splash fest. Might even devote a whole issue to just those two! :eek::rolleyes:

If the ATP is controlled by the USA, it's only because we have one of the richest tennis programs in the world. It's not fair because the best players aren't even American (well . . .)

I think we tennis fans are above the level that the media is giving us. Tennis is not a popular sport in this country, so of course they will continue to trot out the aging heros and the youngsters (wouldn't mind seeing more of James, I have to admit) just to even get viewership. In the process, they are alienating we fans who are already fans of the sport and have moved on to admiring various players from around the world. They just haven't caught up with us yet.

Another Sampras article?!!! Enough already! Do it when he retires! Even the French tennis mag has been covering only two nations: France and USA. Every mag out there talks about Sampras and Agassi -- Spanish, German, Swiss, British... can't vouch for others.

;)

I still can't get a date with him in my dream. But I think I just saw him last week...for some reason, I dreamt that Costa was dead and Juanqui was in his funeral, he looked very sad. So I said to myself, no wonder Juanqui lost RG to Albert, bcos he knows his best friend is going to die so it's a last wish that he gave Albert.

lol@myself. Pretty silly, eh!

:) Vera, there were only 2 mags that I bought in Spain! I w/have to get a subscription OR send away for back issues, which cost a fortune!! I would love some of those mags! Anyway, if I get around to reading the mags I'll check for info on Juanqui and post it for you.

Re: Aussie mag -- anything interesting in it lately? I rarely see it here -- it's so far behind. I missed the one w Pat on the cover!!! Anything w Rogi in it??

The Russian mag w/be good too but my Russian sucks big time -- it takes me a day to read one article -- no, more like a week!!! W a dictionary!! ;)

Vera
11-05-2002, 10:38 PM
Wow, how many languages do you know?

Chapters always carries the Australian version of Tennis. Lately, it's all Hewitt, as one can understand. The talk about Pat here and there, but not much. I don't think I've seen Rogi in it.

11-05-2002, 10:45 PM
:) I've actually never seen one, not even in Barcelona's FNAC store, but I did look for it. I'd love to have one just for fun -- w Marat on the cover, of course!

My languages are French and Spanish, w a little Italian [I do read Italian tennis sites] and even less Russian -- it's too tough when you are away from it!:(

Regarding him shaving his legs -

I posted a fun little series of pictures and captions in that thread on wtaworld!

I hope you all noticed me making fun of Andre :D

Vera
11-14-2002, 12:14 AM
Yes, Becca. I saw that pic. Really funny, I almost choked laughing.
Okay, I found this pic in Shanghai. Now, we can CLEARLY see that he didn't shave his legs. So I concluded that the magazine is really all BULLs.

Vera
11-14-2002, 12:16 AM
Or maybe he will ask Andre again tomorrow for shaving tips.:D

217. He gave Agassi a beatdown on the indoor hard ;):D

Chloe le Bopper

Well it's possible he DID shave and stopped ;)

Chloe le Bopper
11-15-2002, 02:13 PM
I can't believe I somehow missed an entire discussion of what it was we found so appealing about him *kicks self*

Oh well, next time ;)

I know what you mean -- I don't mind sharing him w fewer people too! Same w Rogi. Why Juanqui and Rogi are not always considered sexy and Pandy is, well, it's a mystery to me!! Oops, gotta check my dinner!

I much prefer it this way. When I go to a tournament I try and take at least one picture of everyone that I see (some I take many times that many :D). I am seriously embarrassed to stand there and take pics of Andy before the match, because I look around and see all the teeny bopper crowd sighing and snapping pics left and right, and squealing - ugh, it makes me want to run.

I can do this at Ferrero's match without much fuss, and without feeling silly :D

At least the women doing it to him usually average older than 15 ;)

It's funy - I was sitting beside some woman at the Toronto Masters Series (round 1) who half way through the match literally sighed and said "ooohh, he's so cute!" - did I mention she was old enough to be my moms mom? lol :D Okay well, more like my mom, I guess she was mid 50's. Not that old, my bad. But still - made me smile ;)

And at the US Open, it was the same thing - not so teeny bopper ;) The girls in the row infront of me (4 of them, since they were little rows of 4) - were about my age, maybe a couple years older. And the women to my left and a row down (who was frighteningly amusing) looked 30ish.

218. Juanqui got his revenge over AA BIG time in a BIG arena, proving he's BETTER than him!!

Hi Rebecca!!

My Mother thinks some tennis players are quite goodlooking -- she used to like Haas but she's gone off him lately and now follows Moya!!! She's trying to get to know Juanqui more [it would help if they showed more of his matches] and I think she's really warmed up to Rogi!!! So... age has nothing to do with anything!! It's fun!! I wonder what the players think about women of all ages being interested in them [for whatever reason]. Hee hee! :p

Chloe le Bopper
11-15-2002, 03:15 PM
I know age has nothing to do with people finding others attractive ;)

I was just getting at Andy's teeny bopper (and for some reason I find a lot of Gay men like him too :confused:) following, vs Ferrero's less scary one :D

I've talked about this before, but it makes me laugh.

RogiFan
11-15-2002, 03:44 PM
:) Yeah I know what you mean re: Andy Pandy people!! Speaking about things like commentators' biases -- what about Andy? DO they ever say anything about him NOT making it to Shanghai? They conveniently overlook the fact that he didn't do much this year -- he's touted as the next up-and-comer in US -- yeah, so where is he then???!!! They can't help criticizing the other guys who ARE there -- enough already!! PMac was SO harsh w Rogi at RG and Wimby this year -- I couldn't stand it! As if no other player gets into a slump... selective memory or what!! :mad:

221. Layla's commentators think he's a future #1 material.

Leo7

223. he is full of confidence :D

RogiFan
11-18-2002, 03:12 PM

224. Juanqui will most certainly improve when he says things like this:

"but, you know, maybe I have to learn from him that he has a good talent in the important moment, you know, and in the fifth set, you know, with 3-1 down, he was still, you know, win the match, be positive and then, you know, he win the match. So I have to learn something off him."


:D

TennisHack
11-18-2002, 04:35 PM

Leo7
11-18-2002, 08:46 PM
actually Hackie, Ferrero is the first Spanish player since Brugera in '93' and '94 to finish in the Top 5 FOR 2 STRAIGHT YEARS! (remember he finished 2001 at #5 ;))

226. he is determined to end 2003 at #1 and no one can stop him. :D

249. he always thinks about his mother after winning a game. heres the proof after winning Roland Garros 2003:

“Well, in my mind, she was in the first row.” – JC admits that his mother was constantly on his mind during the finals; 2003 Roland Garros Finals.

we dont really need proof but i just wanted to put it in my reply.

Yeah, I noticed at least one time when he said finally where it wouldn't normally be used... it was cute.

And, I also caught a "pression" in his interview today... so I guess I don't have any new reasons, just reflecting on the cute things he says... ;-)

Omg i love the way he talks 2!!, my sister was reading his post match interview after he won roland garros and he kept on going on about 'base of the line' and 'tennistically' and i was just like u wouldnt understand :rolleyes: :p

248) the way after CERTAIN tournament organisers gave a CERTAIN player a total advantage going into the final, he said nothing and just gave his opponent credit

249) the way he always say 'no' when hes speaking in english

250)the way he proved 2 the entire world he can do it on hardcourt

251)they way when he was first asked about his girlfriend who he totally pashed after winning roland garros he was like 'i dont know anything about that. are u talkin about my sister? three ladies were dressed in yellow i chose the fist one closest to me. how cute :p :D

esther
09-08-2003, 08:44 AM
lol ok
re: 248- that was so true. i was hoping that he would make it to the speeches and at least make a sarcastic/ tongue-in-cheek remark about how americanised the tournament was but i guess he's more classy than me and didnt say nething ;)

re: 251)...i STILL dont understand that. he was in total denial about him having a girlfriend and now everyone knows the truth and he's pretty public about her now but that was strange that he totally dismissed it like that

259. The way he congratulated Andy and demonstrated sportmanship and decency (while Andy didnt ay a thing about JC - shame on you... :ras:)
250. The way he wrote Sete on the camera after he won RG because of his friend Sete Gibernau winning the Moto GP event... :p
251. The way he said he was thinking about buying an Aston Martin with the money he made after winning RG... :drive:
252. The way his nickname on the Internet is 'chavalito' (this means 'little kid', 'el niño' means 'the kid') :baby:
