Cheering thread for Juan Balcells!
My favourite player, the nicest guy on the ATP tour, and owner of the best sideburns in sport...:cool:

good luck in the second round of Amsterdam after a handy win over 6th seed Fernado Gonzalez in the first...

Plus, I should have mentioned, one of the few Spaniards to do well at doubles, here he is with Alex:

Suerte Joan!!!!!

boo! bad luck today for Joan; after beating Flavio Saretta 6/2 7/5 in the second round, he lost 7/6(7) 6-3 to Juan-Ignacio Chela in the QFs. Not a bad week though, all in all.

Suerte!!!!! :D

Great site, thanks!

Appologies for my ignorance on the matter, but is it 'Joan' or 'Juan'?

Or are they the same thing, but one is in Spanish, and the other is Anglo-sized?

JonBcn 07-22-2002 03:30 AM

Joan is the Catalan way of saying Juan, and is pronounced like the English girls name Joanne, rather than Joan...;)

just to make thing clear i saw him first - so glad i am not the only one who likes him

joanbalcells 08-14-2002 09:44 PM

joan is such a cutie. very pleasing personality indeed. he likes to make the fans happy by playing nice tennis.

i hope he can keep his ranking up and maybe get a few wins on the hardcourts......

and nice to see some fellow JB fans on here......

JonBcn 08-18-2002 06:46 PM

Actually, I saw him first, but never mind ;)

Is he injured right now, does anyone have any news? He hasnt played any US open warm-ups to the best of my knowledge.
