Fernando Gonzalez won Roland Garros as a junior in singles and doubles (w/Jose Antonio de Armas) (1998)
And he also won the US Open in doubles with Nicolas Massu (1997)

What do you guys think about this ???

I think is awesome I just hope that he can someday repeat his title in Roland Garros (or any slam) but now as a professional :D

Feña has beaten Juanqui several times until RG2003 QF when Juanqui went on to win it... but they know each other well and respect each other -- they were so cute at the net I remember... love them both!

I just want Feña to take Amersfoort! ;)

Nice pic, thanks :) and yes I knew that and like you all so hope that he'll win RG or any other GS now as a professional one day – that would be so fantastic.

And I remember RG 2003 and his QF match against Ferrero very well as I’m following Fernando since then :inlove: and I especially liked the moment at the net with Ferrero. I just loved Fernando for the way he played and being able to react like this at the net after losing such a tight 5 setter. :worship:

For those of you who don’t remember here are some pictures of it:

What a cute picture from when they were kids!!!

And that match in 2003 between the two of them was hard to follow - I wanted them both of win. Of course Fena because he's my second favorite, but I also really like JC and felt that it was his time to win RG.

I'll never forget the look on Fena's face though after he lost - he was so devastated. I felt so horrid for him - it was such a tough loss.

Oh I remember that touching moment at the net SO well -- it made me cry to see two great players and friends hugging each other, one in victory and the other in defeat.

:angel:

Somebody asked Juanqui what Fena said to him at the net:

"Ferrero agradeció después del partido las palabras de ánimo de González, su rival de hoy. "Me dijo que fue un buen partido y que deseaba que yo ganara el torneo, que soy un magnífico jugador y persona y yo creo que él también lo es", enfatizó."

Juanqui: "He told me that it was a good match and that he wanted me to win the tournament because I am a great player and person and I think he is too."
