Except confidence.

Poor Juan Carlos. His body just did not cut him a break this year.

He suffered lots of things,his mother died ,3 times lose in RG...everytime I consider he can't face tomorrow bravely,he always playes better in the next time.So he is not a man who beat easily.

Totally agree with you. :awww: He is talented,he will bounce back but I'm not 100% he will be in top 10.
Auckland is his crucial match,if he plays well,then everything is alright. :shrug:

I will be there to cheer him on at the Australian Open, and I will be cheering for him in every other tournament he plays in. He is so strong, he loves his tennis
'he believes it is his destiny to be this good' That is a quote from some interview that i have memorised and any time i think he won't get his ranking back up i just think of that quote and i instantly have faith in him. The only think i can think of that can stop him is injuries, but the poor guy has suffered enough. And seeing how fantastic Coria played yesterday means that because Juanqui is better then Coria, he will play even better than coria. He just needs a few matches to warm up, thats all.

Hi, guys! Thought I'd share this interesting article as we all wait in anticipation for the start of juanqui's 2005 tennis season...

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Following up on his dreamlike 2003 season, 2004 turned out to be a nightmare for the "Mosquito," one Juan Carlos Ferrero.

The free-swinging star enjoyed a breakout campaign last year, piling up 67 match wins, including a coveted French Open title among his four championships. He also achieved world No. 1 status in '03, becoming only the second Spaniard to do so since the world rankings commenced in 1973. But the skinny righthander struggled mightily in a forgettable '04, a year in which he was riddled with injuries and even battled a bout with the chickenpox. The 24-year-old was a disappointing 23-16 this past season and failed to add to his career titles tally, which still stands at 11. He reached a semifinal just three times all year, including a loss to the great Roger Federer at the Aussie Open, and lost in his only final, at the hands of fellow former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt in Rotterdam. Ferrero didn't reach another semi after succumbing to lefthanded countryman Fernando Verdasco in Valencia, Spain way back in mid-April. Ferrero suffered bad losses this year against the likes of Aussie Chris "Bob" Guccione (in Sydney) and American Kevin Kim (in Beijing), not to mention one against a seemingly-washed up Alex Corretja in the opening round of the Monte Carlo Masters, where the clay-court wizard that's supposed to be the Mosquito had been the defending champion. He also went 1-2 against smallish Austrian Stefan Koubek, including a stunning second-round setback at the U.S. Open, where he'd reached the final one year earlier. Ferrero was a combined 9-4 at the majors this year, but went a pedestrian 4-3 in Grand Slam action following a nice run in Melbourne. His year came to an anti-climactic finish earlier this month when he was benched in favor of teenager Rafael "The Prodigy" Nadal for the singles portion of the Davis Cup final against the United States in Seville. Sure, the Spaniards captured their second Cup in five years, but the Mosquito was relegated to just doubles duty on the middle day of the tie and came up a big loser, alongside Tommy Robredo, as the mighty Bryan brothers tap danced on the overmatched Spanish tandem in straight sets, including a bagel effort in the opening stanza. Ferrero had taken the place of Nadal, who was pulled out of the "dubs" rubber in order to rest for another potential singles match the following day. In 2000, Ferrero was the Davis Cup hero when the Spaniards beat Australia in Barcelona to claim their long-awaited first-ever chalice, but he was not "in form" earlier this month, mostly because he was battling a blister problem on his hand. Ferrero, a career 3-19 in doubles at the tour level, was, of course, embarrassed in Seville and could use that as motivation for a resurgent 2005. "That issue is long forgotten," Ferrero said on getting pulled from the Cup singles. "I feel fortunate to have won a second Davis Cup when I am only 24 years old." I believe him. Kind of. Ferrero crossed the finish line at No. 31 in the world this year, after placing No. 3 by the end of 2003, which saw him climb to the top of the ATP ladder with the help of his Roland Garros victory and an appearance in the U.S. Open final (lost to Andy Roddick). Ferrero went from the top of the Spanish heap to No. 4 on the depth chart, behind their newest Davis Cup hero Carlos Moya, Robredo and Feliciano Lopez. And the aforementioned Verdasco is not far behind in the rankings, only five spots and 17 points away from the Mosquito. It's hard to say if Ferrero (nicknamed the Mosquito because of his speed and small physique) can become No. 1 again, but I can almost guarantee a return to the top 10 in he can stay healthy in the coming year.

I have seen a report the day before yesterday.It's said that JC says he will play in China Open this year as well as Safin Srichaphan.But I am not convicing.It's too early to make a decision or media news always be exaggerate.
No matter what tournament he will take part in ,hoping he playes good. :)

He was supposed to play Medibank this year.... but no, he's playing in New Zealand. Which I can understand, because he gets a seeding there. But his presence in Sydney will be missed with the incredibly poor men's main draw, especially compared to the women's draw.

Really sucks, because last year, I didn't get centre court tickets for the first round, and he was knocked out. So I haven't seen him play live since the 2003 Sydney final.
Anyhoo, good luck to him, I'm waiting for a return to the top.

At least you've seen him play live, I've only got about 8 or 9 days left until my turn comes and i am so damn excited. I wish he had played Sydney though, would have been on TV

We can't expect him to be in exelent shape in the begining of the year. I'm sure he wants to come back to first ten this year but he needs time. He wasn't playing for long time. We have to patient like you have said.
Good luck to JC in 2005 :yeah: and I'm keeping fingers crossed like you all. :hug:

Damn it, he has an excellent draw for the beginnig, a qualie and then or a fellow one or Alberto Martin. Nobody would blame him if he loses, but I'm sure he can reach, at least, qualies, what would be a nice warm up before AO.

Hi ayena, nice to see a compatriot here :)

He can do it, maybe it will take him some time, but he's just too good not to climb back up the top, where he belongs, rite?......And once he believes this, he'll do it!!!
