He has to win it. He has to. He will. He will!

Let's cheer him on to the title, and to the #1 ranking. VAMOS!

Take no prisoners!

10-30-2003, 10:03 PM
Go Juan Carlos.
Forget Paris, it's over and let's move on. Do your best in Houston, Okay?

10-31-2003, 12:30 AM
vamos ferrero! good luck in houston, and get #1 back! :)

10-31-2003, 01:53 AM
Look at the positive side... Juanqui can rest up a bit then prepare for Houston!! I think the indoor carpet was playing really fast for him and damn that Novak was just too consistent today...

You'll get your rightful #1 spot back, Juanqui!!

We'll be cheering for you too!!


Hey, Juanqui is #1 to us anyway!

10-31-2003, 02:35 AM
Yes he is. Andy doesn't deserve it.

I have a feeling that Andy and Juan Carlos might go head to head for the #1. I hope they do. I hope Juan Carlos kicks his ass.

10-31-2003, 09:20 AM
Definately...that Andy needs someone to kick his ass! Good luck in Houston and we'll all be cheering you on JC!! Reclaim your number 1 spot.

10-31-2003, 10:03 PM
Juan Carlos for #1 :bounce:

11-01-2003, 12:08 AM
ok i strongly disliked andy...then after US i hated him and now i think it has turned to dispuise.


GOOD LUCK IN HOUSTON JC!!!!!!!!! we are right behind you :kiss:

11-01-2003, 12:28 AM
interview a few days old...but talking about number one spot

11-01-2003, 06:17 AM
Juan Carlos has 2 get back the no.1 ranking. if andy ends the yr as no.1 i am gonna be so pissed off and my friends will just die because then they'll just have 2 hear about 4 the rest of the summer :p

11-01-2003, 01:01 PM
Good luck!We are sure that you can win!Show them real tennis!

11-01-2003, 03:17 PM
The "new #1" (but not really) just lost to Henman :lol:

He's not far ahead of Ferrero.... c'mon Juanqui! Kick his ass!

11-01-2003, 05:34 PM
Well done Tim, I knew you could beat that "new no.1"...I will be cheering you on in the final. As for JC, kick some more of Andy's butt!!

11-02-2003, 12:07 AM
I really hope that Federer will be in Roddick's draw. But watch Roddick get all the easier players.

If Ferrero wins the Master's Cup, he's #1. Let's hope he wins it.


11-02-2003, 07:07 AM
Actually Juan Carlos could win the TMC but if Roddick makes it 2 the final unbeaten he will be no.1 regardless of whether he plays ferrero and wins or loses.

11-02-2003, 04:02 PM
Nooo!! That cannot happen. C'mon JC!!

11-02-2003, 04:55 PM
Yes Vamos JC get the #1 back. I hope Andy will get a tough draw too but you just know the Americans will be soft on him.

11-02-2003, 05:52 PM
Actually Juan Carlos could win the TMC but if Roddick makes it 2 the final unbeaten he will be no.1 regardless of whether he plays ferrero and wins or loses.

Errrr, getting to the final without losing a match in RR only gives one a total of 100 pts if he doesn't win the final.

If JC wins the tourney, he will get 130 pts or 150 pts depends on whether he wins 2 or 3 matches in RR, and he is only 26 pt less than Pandy. So anyway, winning the title will be more than enough to overtake Pandy at #1.

Well, all these mean, everything is well within reach and destiny is in your hands, Juanqui. Good luck.

11-02-2003, 11:23 PM


11-04-2003, 10:55 PM
Cheer :fiery:

:bounce: Juan Carlos :bounce:

11-04-2003, 10:58 PM
Good luck to Juan Carlos in Houston! I am crossing all my fingers that he can take back the #1 ranking that he really deserved for an outstanding year.

11-05-2003, 07:32 AM
we're cheering we're cheering!! lol

4 more days!!!!!!! hope youre preparing well JC!!!

11-05-2003, 08:30 PM
The draws have been made, JC wiv A Agassi, R Federer and D Nalbandian. Tough opponants I'd say...gonna be tough and close matches too. Good luck though JC!! Win Win Win!!!

11-05-2003, 10:03 PM
He has a hard draw... federer, agassi and nalbandian.
He really has to fight for the title.... go jc!

11-06-2003, 03:40 AM
Roddick got the shit group. No fucking way. The USTA is such complete bullshit, I hope to God they never have a year-end championships in the US again.

That being said, if there is a God, Roddick will go 0-3. I really hope Ferrero has come prepared, he will need all the energy he has to win this tournament with this draw. I really can't believe they have the balls to do this... especially after the US Open fiasco. What nerve.


11-06-2003, 06:44 AM
oh man... whoever said roddick will get all the easy players sure got it right... this draw is so...... ahhhh!!! everybody in roddick's group is sick/injuried and who knows about schuettler... i bet ferrero CAN go undefeated and prove to the world that he IS the rightful and deserved #1! not the guy who has a huge serve/forehand who's going on TV shows the week before the TMC!!
let's go FERRERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11-06-2003, 07:46 AM
so in the the top two players from each group play each other?

11-06-2003, 09:30 AM
Go Ferrero...prove to them what you are really made of...we are rooting for you

11-06-2003, 11:54 AM
The draw sucks, if what they want is giving the number 1 at the end of the year to Roddick before his public they can do it without making all this theatre :rolleyes:

11-06-2003, 06:30 PM
If JC wins at least 2 out of 3 matches and Roddick wins all three JC will definately be the rightful no.1 because of the tough matches he will have. Bloody Roddick, I hope that Schuttler, Coria and Moya are all in top form and kick some Roddick butt!!

Cant wait for monday...JC's playin first against Nalbandian...C'mon JC we're all cheering for you!!! :D

11-07-2003, 12:04 PM
no matter what happens, who he plays against, JCF will win this tournament and we'll be all cheering for him as he finishes the year as no:1!! he totally deserves it. he just needs to be concentrated on his play. If he really wants to win-i believe he does- nothing can stop him.

11-07-2003, 10:51 PM

11-08-2003, 03:32 PM

11-08-2003, 03:41 PM
Good luck on monday...we'll all be cheerin you on! This would be a nice present for me as its my b-day on monday...most important thing though is to play good and win!

11-08-2003, 11:34 PM
hehe happy birthday for monday

11-09-2003, 08:25 AM
C'mon Ferrero! We all strongly believe you can do it!!
He was so close to winning it last year and made it to the semis in 2001, so the title's gotta be his. I recently turned a little "anti-roddick".... not recently but like after the US open..

11-09-2003, 08:10 PM
Thx esther...c'mon JC!!

11-09-2003, 09:39 PM really deserves to be number 1...he really played great tennis this year...good luck and God bless on your game with nalbandian later on...

11-10-2003, 01:12 AM
GO JC!!!

11-10-2003, 08:47 AM
awww he looks SOOO cute in his cowboy hat!!!!!!!

11-10-2003, 03:40 PM
Juan Carlos takes the court in just over two hours :)

C'mon JC! Take the title and the #1!

11-10-2003, 07:45 PM
Ferrero lost 6-3 6-1... :sad: :sad: :sad: i wonder what happened

11-10-2003, 07:51 PM
That has to be the most pathetic display ever. Even in this sucky group he should have done better, but playing like this he doesn't deserve #1.

11-10-2003, 08:00 PM
Ur totally he played really really bad...soo upsetting watching him play like could tell that he wasnt too pleased wiv the way he played also...real shame he lost and upsetting. Hopefully he will play much better or he will kiss the no.1 away :(

11-10-2003, 08:03 PM
There's still hope. No matter what the other players do, if Juan Carlos wins his next four matches (if he wins the tournament), he's #1. That's probably what he has to do to be #1, but he can do it!

VAMOS JUAN CARLOS! Snap out of it and WIN!

11-10-2003, 08:11 PM
Lets hope so!!

11-10-2003, 11:12 PM
I don't know if someone posted this already, but I thought it was really cute. :)

Ferrero was asked before the Tennis Masters Cup whether he'd like to face Roddick in next Sunday's title match with the top ranking at stake.

``For the crowd, for the tournament, that would be perfect,'' Ferrero said, then smiled. ``For me, if he loses early, that's OK.''

11-10-2003, 11:40 PM
Awful performance today :bigcry: I hope he manages to do well :(

11-11-2003, 06:08 AM
Omg i was soooo sad all day 2day i watched the match in the morning before i went 2 school and the then i had my exams so it was just a overall craptastic day.

Anyway juan carlos lost his first match in both sydney and shanghai and in sydney he made the semis, shanghai the in housten it would only make sense to go one step further.


11-11-2003, 12:38 PM
i was a little disappointed too coz i was really hoping ferrero would win this match, anyway, its not too can still do it ferrero!!!!!

11-11-2003, 05:36 PM
Yeah that's wot the commentators were tlkin bout before his match, how JC lost his first matches in sydney and shanghai but still got to the semi and final...but he will have to play loads better if he's gonna get far...u can still do it! Win Win Win!!

11-11-2003, 11:46 PM
That match was really disappointing. All the way through the match i was thinking 'What the hell is happening?' I don't know if JC was not feeling well or just down on confidence, but that game was probably the worst he has played all year, he even said so himself. It looks like one of JC's trends, he lost both of his first match in shanghai and sydney, and still got to the finals and semis... well lets hope he can do it again. But it's gonna be hard, his next match is against agassi. It'll be interesting to see how he goes this time (cos the nalbandian match, i think he was just feeling sorry for himself after the lost the first couple of games). Oh and what do u think of his new outfit?

11-12-2003, 07:11 PM
He plays Andre tonight and I think he has the upper hand. VAMOS! Crush the old man, again! ;)

11-13-2003, 01:41 AM
And Juan Carlos blows it yet again. :rolleyes: Roddick will be #1.

I hope next year Juan Carlos takes back the number one and stops playing like ass when it really matters. I don't know what his problem was this week, but he really blew it bigtime.

I also hope that Roddick goes back to #100 where he belongs.


Maybe we can at least hope for another Roland Garros title next year.

11-13-2003, 01:57 AM
I cant believe he blew it.:sad: and now roddick is #1... my worst nightmare.

well good luck next year Ferrero!

11-13-2003, 02:21 AM
I was really sad today...but its ok, I know ferrero gave it his best. well, good luck on your match with federer, i know the results wont matter but give it still your best...and good luck also on the davis cup :p

11-13-2003, 07:10 AM
Well actually if Ferrero beats Federer then Ferrero will have guaranteed his #2 spot, otherwise Federer will still have a chance and Ferrero can drop all the way down to #3!!
And I actually thought Ferrero didn't play THAT badly against agassi... i thought agassi just got lucky in the 2nd set... But good luck to Ferrero next year!!! I hope he can take back the #1 ranking the first week 2004 starts...
btw... I don't like his new outfit OR hair... let's hope it gets better next time we see him...

11-13-2003, 12:02 PM
Do you have a picture of this new outfit and hair?

11-13-2003, 12:14 PM
Maybe Juan Carlos has been playing poorly because he is training hard on grass for the Davis Cup.

Yeah, that must be it ;)

11-13-2003, 01:19 PM
so, if ferrero loses to federer, federer will be no. 3 in the world or in the atp race only?

btw, i saw the whole match between agassi and ferrero today. i thought ferrero played really well, the stats showed it also, ferrero had more winners and less errors than agassi...i guess, ferrero lost some of his focus when he double faulted in the the 8th game in the 2nd set. he was up 40-0 but then agassi was still able to break his serve.

Go Ferrero!!!!

11-13-2003, 02:55 PM
Oh, im soo sad...that Andy Roddick is the world no.1 now and that JC lost his match against agaasi. I really thought JC could win it but i guess it just didnt go his way today...good luck for the federer match...hopefully he win win that one and not go down 3-0...i wouldnt mind so much if it was someone else who would be no.1 but the fact that its Roddick really annoys me!! Good luck for 2004, u WILL definately always be the no.1 in my eyes! Good luck to ne one who can beat that Roddick!

11-13-2003, 08:49 PM
Schuettler beat Roddick!! Well done to him!

11-13-2003, 11:53 PM
here are some pictures of Ferrero during Agassi's match!

11-13-2003, 11:56 PM
And if ferrero loses against federer, Federer will only be #2 if he WINS the whole TMC... so... let's hope ferrero wins this match!!

11-14-2003, 10:55 AM
what a disapointing masters cup

11-14-2003, 07:01 PM
Yes wot a disappointing masters that ferrero's lost i want someone like schuettler or coria to win...not roddick or federer...neone but them! Saw JC's match against federer...had some good point, but JC wasnt consistant enough and i don think he was at all in this tournament, mayb against agaasi (but i didnt see that mathc, too early for me!) oh well...i suppose always nxt year.......

11-14-2003, 08:39 PM
My only hope for this tournament now is that Coria eliminates the Devil and then wins the event.

Let's look forward to next season and the Davis Cup for Juan Carlos :)

11-14-2003, 09:06 PM
I feel so sad JC played so badly today again! It's just been a horrible tournament.

J. Corwin
11-15-2003, 01:14 AM
May JC have a wonderful 2004 season. And good luck in Davis Cup. :)

11-15-2003, 06:35 AM
tough three losses, tough tournament for juan carlos..but lets just look forward. I'm actually very proud of myself because i didnt chuck a hissy fit when juan lost 2 agassi and he was out of the tournie and roddick was no1..i just keep telling myself next yr is the year of juan carlos'.

11-15-2003, 06:43 AM
ugh the US is giving him bad vibes i tell you...and whats with Houston having the masters cup two years in a row?!!!!!

what a shocking Masters Cup...Agassi, Roddick, Shuettler and Federer...?! They were the 4 guys i was hoping WOUDLNT make it to the unbelieveably retarded

11-15-2003, 04:55 PM
Hahaha...coria unfortunately lost to that ass roddick, but lets hope that he will lose to federer and then for federer to lose in the final!! I want agaasi to win!

11-15-2003, 10:48 PM
Federer won the first set.

Kill him.

11-16-2003, 04:07 PM
Too bad that Ferrero lost :(. At least Roddick has lost as well, it's a small consolatoin. I really hope Agassi can win Federer.

11-17-2003, 04:27 AM
Well Roger won today and therefore is going to end 2003 as no.2 in the race making juan carlos no.3 it seems so weird considering at the beginning of this week he was in contention for the no.1 spot.

11-17-2003, 05:14 AM
hmm i'm actually glad that federer won to steal andy's thunder and didnt want an american to win so its alright...but like i've already said...lets just allll forget this tournament EVER HAPPENED....and think about 2004!!!

11-17-2003, 12:01 PM
I agree, I'm happy that Federer won, as while I'm not a big fan, I like him more than most. It really doesn't matter if Juan Carlos finishes #2 or #3... he isn't #1 and that's the big deal. Hopefully he'll get it back next year.

Congrats to Federer and Ferrero though :D Coming through a biased season to finish #1 and #2 in the world ;) (well, that's what they should be anyway)

11-17-2003, 06:11 PM
I wanted Agassi to win!!! NOOO!!!

11-18-2003, 06:06 AM
no but then they would be like..its being such a fantastic AMERICAN year blah blah blah
