Hi!
I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Maly and I've been a JCF fan since RG 2000. It was the first time I watched tennis on tv and it was the semi btw Guga and Juanqui. OMG!! Have been a fan since of both players (but more so of Juan Carlos!). I went to Indian Wells this year and had a chance to meet him. =) I usually post on the worldcrossing boards and am pretty much the token JCF fan there. It is so nice to see there are other people out there crazy about him!!

hi guys! Thanks for the welcome!

Mrs. B.- speaking of Ferrero chocolates . .I'm kind of embarrassed about this but I did it anyway. =) When I met Juan Carlos this year, I gave him a box of Ferrero chocolates with "Good Luck at Roland Garros!" scribbled all over it .. he looked a bit embarrassed at my cheesiness ..hehe .. but he gave them to Antonio to eat . .erm, hope I didn't jinx him .

Welcome Maly! :wavey:

Come join us in the chat thread. We talk about anything, not just Juanqui, but of course Juanqui is first and foremost in our thoughts. ;)

When did you meet him? :eek: You lucky girl. :D I think what you did was very sweet. :) Naah, you didn't jinx him. He's too good to fall for jinxes anyway. ;)

:) Hi there!

You have a LOT of catching up to do!! I'm sure Juanqui appreciated your little chocolatey gift!! He probably smiled to himself. :angel:

Welcome to the forum, Maly :wavey:

And never fear, if Juan Carlos isn't jinxed by Patrick McEnroe, then he wouldn't be by your gift :) That's so cool that you were able to meet him!

LOL!

It was at Indian Wells on the practice courts that I met him. If anyone wants to see a picture, I can post a link.

RRR!! Can I mention how much I MATE Pat Mac!?!?! He is so biased against Juan Carlos!!

Leo7

we all agree on PMac. he is a total jackass. almost unbelievable that he is even worse as a comentator than a player, but true. :rolleyes:

ooh, piccies? :D

Layla
11-21-2002, 04:43 PM
Oh yes please. I'd love to see the pic. :)

ferrerogrrl
11-21-2002, 04:44 PM
LOL! So right about PMac. ERR!! I even prefer Mal V. as a commentator over Lil Pat.

This is a page with my Indian Wells pics on it. There are other players on there too, like Paradorn (woo! Go Paradorn!) and Albert Costa, who BTW I am convinced only won RG this year because, of course, 1.) Juan Carlos froze and 2.) Costa flirted with me, thus bringing him good luck in RG. If Juan Carlos wants to win RG next year, he needs to flirt with me. Of course. =) heehee.

Thanks for sharing your pics! :)

Hey, Maly! Are you Thai?

Oooh, GOOD guess, Mrs B! You're close but not quite right: I'm Laotian. But I'm very impressed because people are always guessing Filipino and Chinese (??).;)

:) Lovely pix, Maly!! Lovely setting, lovely players and you're lovely too!! Looks like a good tournament. Did you enjoy it? Do you live close to I Wells at all??

Is the first pic Haas??

So many questions! :p

We have had the most intense conversations in here about our "feelings" on Pat, and will more than likely have them in the future.

I've said this before, but the way Pat talks about the guy, you would think Ferrero slept with his wife or something :rolleyes:

I noted in the other thread that you are unsure of how to use some of the features of the board (I don't know what all you read about, but . . .), so to post pics you can either use IMG tags with [ ] around them (like [ IMG ] and [ /IMG ] only without the spaces), or attach an image via "Post Reply".

argh .. Nico was so hot. I was like "Felix who?" when I was next to Nico. But, of course, not as hot as Juan Carlos! Although I was highly tempted to tell him not to practice in white shorts and black briefs. . .but then I refrained since it was a pretty enjoyable sight for me. :drool:

TennisHack- um, now how do I reply to others' posts by quoting them? thanks :confused:


Rebecca- LOL! If I were PatMac's wife and had a choice between my hubby and JuanQui .. . . :angel:

RogiFan - Hi! :bounce: Thanks :p IW was my first tournament and boy did I have tons of fun! It's a good event and I'm going to try and go again next year. The problem is that Palm Springs is so expensive! I go to school in LA and it is the nearest tournament to me besides the LA event, which Juanqui never goes to anyway. And yep, that's Tommy in the first pic! ;)

At the bottom of every post, in the righthand corner, there are two little buttons--one called quote and one called edit. Both are very useful :)

You can also use quote tags in the simple reply box at the bottom of every page.

You can go back and edit your own posts with the edit button, so mistakes don't last forever ;)

I think most people were probably like this when they first joined,dont worry about it :) I already knew because I was a member of another board that had the same lay-out.I dont really visit there much anymore though

I'm sure if I hadn't posted on wtaworld before this, and sanex and gotennis before that, I would have been lost with the smilies and tags as well :bounce:

So don't feel bad :D

Just a side note - if you flirt with Costa next year (or vice versa, whichever it was) - I WILL kill you ;)

:eek: eep! He flirted with me and you can have him if you want him!

I plan on giving the evil eye to anyone at Indian Wells next year who might give JuanQui trouble at RG!:angel:

Oh no, I was only irate over what effects this may have had at RG.

You are welcome to Costa, so long as you don't bless him again.
