I dont really understand what he's doing playing all these challengers when he could have been in New York.

i think he wants to play on the clay to earn a few points. i'm not sure he would get direct entry to NY anyway, as the cut was close to his entry rank.

good luck in bucuresti, joan. Norok!

bump!

Not a good for Joan so far, so I bumped this in case everyone forgets who he is...

three losses so far, to Noam Okun (ISR ) 5-7 4-6 in Chennai,
Lars Burgsmuller (GER) at 4-6 5-7 5-7 Oz Open and Paul Goldstien 2-6 6-2 3-6 at San Jose. This week he's defending finalist at Scottsdale and has to qualify...grr)

Time to step it for the clay!

Hmm...so has Joan retired then, or is he injured? Hasn't played at all yet this year

*edit* I can answer my own question; he's playing doubles at this weeks Barcelona challenger...

FORMÓ PARTE DEL EQUIPO QUE GANÓ LA DAVIS EN EL 200
Joan Balcells se retira del tenis profesional
J. Solsona. Londres

Joan Balcells, historia viva del tenis español por formar parte del cuarteto español que ganó la primera Copa Davis de la historia en 2000, cuelga definitivamente la raqueta en septiembre. Balcells se retira por una lesión en el pie. El jugador consultó a Ángel Ruiz Cotorro, médico de la RFET, y éste no le aseguró una completa recuperación en caso de pasar por el quirófano.

Balcells, que el pasado domingo cumplió 29 años, no ha jugado ningún torneo en la presente campaña, aunque sí estuvo la pasada semana en el Club Vall Park (Barcelona) disputando una exhibición en hierba con Álex Corretja, Albert Costa y Galo Blanco. El tenista barcelonés, apodado el ‘oso’ por su envergadura, ocupa el puesto 592 de la lista ATP en individuales y el 442 en dobles.

Balcells sobresalió entre los miembros de la ‘Armada’ a partir de septiembre de 1999. Fue entonces cuando Manolo Santana le dio la alternativa como pareja de Julián Alonso en la eliminatoria de Copa Davis por la permanencia en el Grupo Mundial ante Nueva Zelanda. Joan tocó la gloria junto a Corretja en su victoria frente a Woodforde y Stolle, por un triple 6-4, en el tercer punto de la final de la Davis del Sant Jordi. Además de la Ensaladera de plata, en el palmarés de Balcells, siempre discípulo de William ‘Pato’ Alvarez, destaca el título de Bucarest en 2000 y la final de Scottsdale en 2002.

Sad news; but it was expected I suppose. Best of luck to him
