Favourite Moment/Match of 2002?

For me I guess it was when he beat Moya in Monte Carlo - sadly Moya was injured and wasn't able to move around as well, but this was Ferrero's first good tournament after coming back from his injury.

So for that reason, and the fact it was his biggest title all year, it was my favourite moment :)

From the other thread ;)


Favorite match of the year: Roland Garros quarterfinal against Agassi. It was his surface, it was his tournament, and he showed that he could beat The Ultimate Prick who had to resort to juvenile tactics to take his set.

A close second: TMS Cincinnati QF vs Wayne Arthurs, which showcased all of my favorite shots, the passing shots :drool: It was also a nailbiter, with two breaks of serve being the seperation between Mr. All Serve No Shots and Ferrero. Juanqui also showed that his game has evolved and improved, and went on to win his second hard court title later in the year :)

He and Moya also must have played a great match in Hong Kong, but I didn't get to see it.

Their Masters Cup Semi was also wonderful :)

LIke I said in that other thread - him and Moya really play great matches usually - for some reason or another Moya has a tough time beating him - maybe that's another reason I'm so fond of his matches with him? ;)

Hmmm well I loved Federer v Hewitt Miami.He didnt put a foot wrong :D it was awesome.One of my favourite moments was when Rogi won his first tournament,Vienna, since Peter Cater died and when he dedicated his win to him when he cried,it was heart-warming :)

Also gotta love the Monte Carlo final :) It was just great :D Leo,I also loved the Haas-Federer match!;)lol

Oh, even though I haven't seen it yet, another great match was that of Juan Carlos & Jarkko at TMS Madrid. It went the full three and both played spectacular tennis :) I really hope Jarkko can capitalize on his awesome play from this year and keep improving!!

When he beat everyone in Monte Carlo
When he did great in Roland Garros until...
When he came to TO and scared everyone
When he won Salem
When he proved he was the best Spaniard in Madrid.
When he got to the Masters Cup final and almost beat Hewitt in 5 tight sets (one of the best matches of the year from JC, IMO. it would of been special if he won...)
...and he proved once again that he is the best Spanish player in the world. and right now he deserves to be #3

Hmm, well I'll try!

Might be easier if I didn't have exams coming up though :rolleyes:
Anyway, I'm sure it's easy to find loads of stuff to say about Juan! ;)

Oh of course - there are tons of threads about lots of stuff, so talk away ;)

We're all happy to hear it I'm sure.

It's my favourite topic personally ;)

That's easy. :) Both matches where he defeated Agassi. :D Followed by the two finals where he beat Moya, both in Monte Carlo and in Hong Kong. As for moments, I will go with Leo, not just because it was such an easy victory but because it meant he made the final of RG for the first time in his life. :)

RG 2002, when he played Baldy. I prayed he'd beat him and he did. and the recent one in Shanghai. :D

Of course seeing him play live in Basel was a big bonus! He was awesome against Rosset. David slew Goliath! ;)

:) The only match [part] that I had the pleasure to see was when Juanqui demolished AA at RG02 in the Qtrs this year [but I want the whole thing!!]. The other two matches I didn't see but think were two other high points in Juanqui's career are: winning the TMS Roma01 vs. Guga and beating that AA again in Shanghai02 -- talk about immensely satisfying results for him!!!! [I also want those matches!!! as well as his winning match vs. Hewitt at DC00 in Barcelona -- the one that made him a national hero in Spain!!!]

;)

Juanqui never needs to be intimidated by the AA again!! You've conquered the baldy beast!!
