They (the media) does this a lot. Everyone seems to see Juan Carlos in a "awww, *so cute*, wouldn't he make a great brother?!" sort of light--like he's asexual or something

Not that I mind that Ferrero is so far under the "hot boys" radar, I kinda like only having to share him with a few people.

RF, did you put a scanner on your X'mas wish list

6 feet is perfect for me I'm 5'6".
Well, there's a lot of sexy guy they didn't include, apparently, a top player is sexier than a non-top. How'bout Nico can't you say he's not sexy! and Clement, his eyes can melt ice...Blake is pretty sexy...

Hackie:

I know what you mean -- I don't mind sharing him w fewer people too! Same w Rogi. Why Juanqui and Rogi are not always considered sexy and Pandy is, well, it's a mystery to me!! Oops, gotta check my dinner!

Maybe we should try another translation site... for fun!

Hehehe, they always say great minds think alike. And we just have good taste. We could compose our own sexy list.

I agree too, Hackie. He is like the brother type to most ppl. I don't mind that ppl don't think he's a sex symbol. In fact, I hate it when a guy gets the sex symbol thing hanging on his neck, to me, it's demeaning. But Juanqui, everything I see in him, I like. I don't mind to be different, I just know that I'm with good company.

Vera I think there was already some kind of top 10 thing a while ago but I don't mind doing the definitive SEXY list!!

Well, I know who's Top 10 in my mind, and apparently, in yours too.

Hey RF, I think TSN's coverage of the TMC really sucks and I wrote a complain to them. Damn, only 1 taped match in the afternoon after a live soccer match which may run long. I wonder if they are going to show the whole match in one hour or sth.

Have you read Deuce? They had this thing where they asked some girls (20ish) to rate the hottest players in a "tournament" of sorts. Juan Carlos lost to James, if I remember correctly, in like the second round. They all said, "Oh, he looks like my cousin! I couldn't date my cousin!"

But I agree, he just exudes some quality that I find intensely appealing. Maybe it's because he hasn't embraced his public self and tried to exaggerate it (a la Roddick--I liked Roddick last year, I liked his enthusiasm and his energy on court, but the hype has gotten to him and he's changed, which is sad for US men's tennis ). Maybe it's because he doesn't complain a lot or get into bitchfights about stupid things. Maybe it's because he just goes out there and does his thing, and when he gets confident (Roland Garros) he just plays even better.

I can't quite put my finger on it

sometimes I wonder why they even bother! every final lately has been shown at midnight and only 1-1/2 hours!! big deal! I should complain too! You know what my fear is... that they'll only show you-know-who!!!!

Hackie!

Yeah, I read that! I was not at all impressed w that article -- why didn't they choose a more diverse group of women?? Their results sucked for the most part. Also, I found the mag to be overly American-biased [what else is new!]. Do they plan on doing another issue? If so, I should make some suggestions. At least they had an article on Rogi. Juanqui does go out there and do his job -- no fussing around, no mindgames, no primadonna behaviour [like someone we know]. He's pretty mature for his age -- a testament to his upbringing!!

RF--

As far as I know, they are going to do another Deuce next year. It's supposed to be "the annual magazine of the ATP" I agree, it was really American-biased but overall, not half bad for a magazine about tennis. Disappointing coming from the ATP, but not too bad if you consider all of the tennis mags out there.

Yes, please do complain, I'm sure they're planning a HUGE "return of Pete Sampras" section for next year

As a matter of fact, I did read Deuce. I bought it bcos they have Juan Carlos in it. See, I don't buy any "Tennis" Magazine, bcos Tennis only have Roddick, Sampras, JMG, Andre, and Roddick and Sampras...very rarely do they ever mention JC...

Anyway, you see, the picture they use in that article, with him in a helmet. WTF, I have to say his pic is very not appealing. And I think they deliberately use a bad picture. No wonder he lost so badly. Juanqui has a boyish look, so I'm not surprised of the result...Though, looking at Roddick, he looks so immature and I think he's worse than my teenage cousin...

I think I'm first impressed by his poise on court, never affected by his surrounding. He looks skinny but he has so much power which is surprising. And yes, he's not overwhelmed by success, still lives in his little town and....well, just everything about him impresses me.

Oh god, that's why I pray to have these 2 retired, and Baldy not getting to #1. I had enough of them, then there's Roddick

The mag. is not too bad, bcos I only read the articles about Rafter, the Spaniards, Rogi, DC French team and all the winners of the TMS at the back since JC is one of them. So I say half of the stuffs is enjoyable. ATP is controlled by Americans, that's my impression.
