Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

I saw a lot of great information about Juanqui's childhood and career development on a site called Juanqui.net. His story is truly touching and should serve as an inspiration to anyone who wants to excel in tennis or any other field. It tells the story of not only Juan Carlos the tennis player, but also "Juanqui," a much-loved member of his family.

I wish the Tennis Channel would show classic matches of Juanqui's, along with an episode of Tennisography about Juanqui. His story is one of the most incredible in all of tennis. I hope someday somebody writes Juanqui's life story. I'd love to read it.

After the Roland Garros SF in 2000 against Kuerten. That was one of the best matches I have ever seen, and I've seen a few.

I'm with you there Edda - I have always admired JC and David together for those qualities as much as their tennis talent and have also regretted that both have rather been in Carlos Moya's, and latterly Rafa's shadow (both of those 2 also nice guys BTW). I can't give any particular "wow this guy is good" moment though...

Viky,

You are so lucky to have met Juanqui! He sounds like a very nice person. I would love to meet him someday.

Goran was my first tennis idol so it's nice to see someone from Split post in this forum!
Hi
Nice avatar ! Yes it was a great match, and 2001 was the year when I got interested in tennis, so most of players that I like, were the ones that I've noticed in 2001
Goran is idol of many players and still big star in Split, although he doesn't live here any more.
I was lucky enough to finally see JCF match live in Umag, also saw him in players restaurant and took picture with him, such a nice guy

Sorry for off topic

We've got some videos:

I've also got recordings of some of his best Wimbledon victories but I don't know how to upload them. I got them from the official website (I had to pay for them) so I think there's a rights issue.

Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

I would love to get a tape of one of Juanqui's greatest matches. I saw him play at Acapulco against countryman David Ferrer and enjoyed seeing that match very much. I like both men because they are both very nice and always very excited to represent their country wherever they go. I like Juanqui's quiet reserve, which has been misrepresented as lack of excitement. Not everyone preens and struts, an attitude I can't stand. I think people can have an inner pride in their accomplishments without always puffing themselves up.

Re: When did you become a fan of Juan Carlos?

I started liking Juan Carlos Ferrero when I saw him in the 2009 Davis Cup semifinal. I became interested in the man named after the King of Spain, and wanted to learn more about him. He is a nice guy and a great player. The pictures of him look very sweet.

I'm not a proper fan, but I like him. I just saw this thread and it reminded me of this:

I knew I liked the guy when I saw this photo for the first time
