Hope you're right. What makes you think he'll be seeded 9th?

JC will play well at Auckland and will reach the 4th round at the AO. By the time we reach RG, he will be ranked around 10-11, naturally there will be a couple of top 10 withdrawals (therefore giving him a seeding of nine). :D

I suppose 4th round at AO sounds realistic enough. A lot will depend on his performances at Monte-Carlo, Rome and Hamburg. If he can win one of them, he'll have the high seeding and confidence to win RG. Whatever happens, I'm sure he'll end up playing Rafa Nadal at some point this year and a lot will depend on whether he can beat him. I'd also love to see JC play Federer and Coria on clay again and try to get some revenge.

I can't wait for the clay court season.

semis will be Fed vs Coria and Nadal vs J.C.F

Fed will beat Guille 6-4 6-1 7-5

J.C.F will beat Nadal 2-6 7-6 4-6 7-5 7-5

Fed will beat J.C.F 6-3 4-6 6-2 6-4

So bad luck. no

I think Nadal will defend his title barring a miracle like a healthy Safin on a good day.

JC will be able to beat Nadal next year, I'm sure he can. The question is whether he can hold his nerve for 5 sets.

I think Rafa won't be quite as dominant on clay next year as he tries to improve his fast court game.

Ferrero should learn how to win a set out of Nadal before thinking about beating him in a GS ;)

Sure, Ferrero even leaded 3-1 in the 2nd set at Godó final, and I think he was also up a break in Beijing, but looks like the kid is into his cocky head :lol:

U r living in dreamland if u think Nadal will forget how to play on clay just bc he will work harder to adapt his style to faster courts.

I'm not going to that extreme, I'm just saying JC will find a way. As much as you like to dream, JC won't let Nadal play him a dozen times and lose every time. I don't expect JC to ever have a winning h2h against Rafa but I do expext him to match up more evenly next year.

Forget Nadal, the main reason is that JC will, hopefully, be much better than he was this year.

It´s not like I´d bet on that, JCF is no longer the player he once was

I agree with you like usual lol

prima donna
11-29-2005, 09:06 AM
It would be nice to see justice done and have JCF win Roland Garros or atleast enjoy mental & physical health, so that he's actually able to contend. The problem with this year's Roland Garros, was a lack of competition, injuries and washed up players that simply have nothing left in the gas tank.

It's a tragedy that:
A). Coria is a headcase and still traumatized by 2004 FO.
B). A tragedy that Gaudio turned out to be a fluke.
C). A tragedy that Gustavo Kuerten was missing in action.
D). JCF was recovering from injury and had some serious mental conflicts, losing to Marat is nothing to be ashamed of, but I expect bigger things.

Aside from that, the clay court field has been mediocre at best and I most certainly would enjoy seeing JCF at 100%, because I have a feeling titles would start to even out. He is after all, the most respectable and charismatic of the Spaniards, a true gentleman and a sportsman, indeed. He is bigger than his game and has proven not only to be a clay court player, but USO 2003 Finalist as well, the young Spaniard is multi-dimensional and has a defensive armor that is near flawless when at it's best.

So, yes, Forza Ferrero. :)

What does being respectable have to do with him winning RG or not and how is he the most respectable of the Spaniards? You're just writing that because it sounds nice but it's :bs:

Ferrero is an attractive man but he's not that charismatic to me and neither do I think that he is the most charismatic of all Spaniards but that's not really relevant in this RG thread. I wouldn't even place him in the top 3. :shrug:

"He is bigger than his game"... :lol: Too funny!

Oh, prima donna...you posts are amusing.

Ferrero could win it again, whether he does or not is another thing. His game hasn't progressed forward while he had the illness and injury problems, but just cause Ferrero is a Latin doesn't mean he is charismatic and multi-dimensional since when did this happen.

One should pose the question pertaining to at which point his Spanish descent was given as a reason for him being charismatic, I acknowledge each player by their ethnicity. It is after all, the grounds most of the times for people having a clue or lack there of. He's charismatic because of his play and his fair sportsmanship. I liked you better, with your tail between your legs in Non-Tennis. :)

Mensa man what are you actually talking about? Just because someone is a fair sportsman, it does not make them necessarily charismatic, it's as relevant as their nationality.

If you were actually prepared to have a serious discussion about tennis, then that would be cool, irrespective of whether anyone likes your opinions or not, but you lost any form of credibility a while ago, especially with the whole Wimbledon is the be all and end all of the tennis world, Ferrero is bigger than game and the whole hypothesis of clay as a surface in your thread about analysing the weaknesses of the top 10. While claiming Ferrero is multi-dimensional and any fool can see that he can play off clay, yet when for example Nadal gets a good result off clay, it must be due to mysterious circumstances.

So, just keep up with the free entertainment please.

I just love it when you try to come across as smart in your posts because it's usually right at that moment that you write the biggest nonsense.

"He's charismatic because of his play and his fair sportsmanship"

I always had a soft spot for Ferrero, but his tennis is certainly not charismatic and multidimensional. On the contrary, what I always admired with him was his tenacity and his hard work, proving that you can be a champion without overriding talent, but use your potential to maximum effect.

I would love to see JC back to his best, he has a great reporetoire of shots & is a very good all around player

he has a very good chance as last year his major losses on clay were to nadal & mostly due to loss of confidence. he has the game to come back.
He needs to start well to gain momentum & confidence for the clay court season

Jimnik
11-30-2005, 09:00 PM
Yup, confidence will be important. That's why I'm delighted that he's chosen to go to South America in February next year. I think Gaudio and Nadal really benefited from the experience this year. Hopefully he can win a tournament down there.

If I went him, I also would be concerned in not to be humiliated by Coria three times again next year.
