And thinking of what he'v beaten this year ,Van Gemerden(I haven't heard his name ever)Zabaleta(just have some ability on clay)Schuettler(a average player except 2003)Mayer(sorry I never see him play but I heard that his hard court is bad)Andreev(last year's RG R2 played against JC was the only one his match I have seen.He strikes me as power player)none of them is top player,but at least he gets some progress than last year,that's the only thing makes me a little happy.I feel frustrated ,I have been waiting his return more than 1 year,now I am lack of confidence too.
Luna it's gonna take time but he'll get there
Rafa Nadal Juanqui Ferrero
Marat Safin Carlos Moya Feli Lopez Nando Verdasco Richie Gasquet
Robredo Guga Garcia-Lopez Ferrer Tomeu
Interviewer: It surprises people how well you get on with Nadal
Carlos Moya: I can't conceal that. I love him very much and I knew that one day he would be better than me. He's on another level.
i think most ppl inhere are right, i dont think jc has played bad this season so far but you cant use the excuse 'bad draw' forever one day he's gotta beat those guys, if not he'll just be an average player. ok we know he's not, we know he's a top player, but tough opponents cant be in his way forever. ofcours his opponents in early rounds get easier the higher he raises in the rankings, so its fine if he can climb by winning first round matches but i dont think that satisfies for reachin the top, does it. he's gotta beat them tough guys someday so dont use it as an excuse too much. i know very well that at this moment, that IS the excuse. but it cant go on forever. that was all.
I think after Monte Carlo, most people will agree he's on his way up. That's good for him. But one thing I can never get over being mad at him is how he always chokes whenever he is on the verge of winning, or on the verge of turning things around. The match with Ferrer in Miami was one example...and there is MC semi against Coria...where he was 4-0 lead in the second set! But I think perhaps he can never improve on that. It's ingrained in his personality and we fans have to deal with it. That's a part of the package we become his fans in the first place anyway
