THE VALENCIAN STARTS HIS 8TH SEASON AS A PROFESSIONAL

Ferrero: "Everything that has happened to me has made me settle down"

Juan Carlos Ferrero ended 2003 as the great clay dominator. He started off with Roland Garros and reached his dream of being number 1. Only Andy Roddick could snatch the ATP throne off him in the last 2 tournaments. One year later, Ferrero starts his return to the elite on Monday in Auckland (New Zealand) after a past year marred by injuries and illnesses which left him with no titles.

How do you feel physically, ahead of a year that promises to be very hard?

Actually, really good. I took my holidays before the Davis Cup final and so I've been training for over a month to be on form for Australia.

I guess it helped you to end in December so as not to lose your rhythm?

Well, in Seville I don't think I got into any sort of rhythm because I hardly played [good swipe at the G3 Juanqui!!! ]

You got to the semis in last year's Australian Open. What are your chances of repeating this from 17 January in Melbourne Park?

Right now, I don't want to set goals for myself in the first few tournaments. The best is to go match by match. I want to think that in 2004 I lost in the first round of Sydney and then I got to the semis of the "Aussie" Open.

But do you realise that all the points you're defending are from the first month of competition with the semis in Australia (450) and the final of Rotterdam (210)?

It would be stupid to get obsessed with thinking about what I'm defending now in Australia. Extra pressure doesn't work well with me. Even if I don't get the results, I've got the whole season to gain places in the ranking.

Balancing up your bad last year, is there time to take positive conclusions from such misfortune?

It helps you mature. Everything that's happened, has helped me settle down. Every sports professional has a bad year, and I've just had mine.

What is 2005 asking of Ferrero?

The only thing I want is to feel competitive oncourt again.

You're used to fighting for Grand Slams and Masters Series. Since 2001, you were in 3 consecutive year-ending Masters Cups. What are your objectives nowadays?

Win a Grand Slam again and also to be up there again in the Masters Series. But all that happens by getting back to the level I was at before.

On Monday the first test for Ferrero begins in Auckland

I'm already looking forward to playing matches after a hard pre-season during which I especially worked on my physical aspect both in Villena, and in the last few days in Brazil.

You flew last Thursday from Salvador de Bahia to New Zealand. Spending your last training week in Brazil helped you to adapt to the current climatic conditions in the Antipodes?

For sure. It's the middle of Summer there and the heat and humidity are factors that influence the results, especially in a Grand Slam with best of 5 set matches.

After the "sweet hangover" of the Davis Cup with your second "Salad bowl", the first week of March you're off to Dominik Hrbaty's and Karol Beck's Slovakia.

I think the draw is quite similar to 2004, where we had to beat a tough team like the Czech Republic. The difference is that the first 2 ties will be away from home. The positive side is that, at least for the finalist teams, the competition starts in March instead of February, with more time in between to get fit.

Spanish tennis is immersed in an electoral process that will produce a new president for the Federation on 29 January. Do you follow what's going on between the candidates?

It's not something I keep myself informed about. I hope that, whoever wins the elections, they do the best for national tennis.

Apart from Carlos Moyà (28 years), you're 24 but behind you are Feliciano López at 23, Tommy Robredo at 22, Fernando Verdasco at 21 and Rafael Nadal at 18. Are we looking at the best generation in history?

Definitely, especially with the potential that all of those players have shown. I hope we're all really high up in the rankings very soon.

Speaking of privileged positions on the men's tour, what do you think about what Roger Federer's doing?

I think he's being a surprise to the tennis world. But this season he's playing with the pressure of repeating all his successes and we'll soon see how he copes with it. It won't be easy to win 11 tournaments, 3 of those being Grand Slams...

Ferrero turned professional in 1998, when those at the top were still Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi and Pat Rafter. He also rubbed shoulders with the greats, Carlos Moyà and Alex Corretja. Don't you feel that now there's more competition within the Top 10?

For sure, getting a spot in the Top 10 doesn't come easily. In the last year Safin, Hewitt and Henman are also back fighting to be there.

Ferrero wants world No.1 title back
January 9, 2005 - 8:14AM

Spaniard Juan Carlos Ferrero is hoping to put a disastrous 2004 behind him and re-scale lofty heights to again challenge for the world No.1 title.

Last year the wiry Spaniard was hampered by injuries and he finished outside the top 30 for the first time in five years.

He missed all of March because of chicken pox, injured his right wrist and ribs in May and found it difficult to get back to his peak.

However, Ferrero said he is feeling healthy and feels he is ready to get back to the scintillating form he showed in 2003 when he became world No.1 after reaching the US Open final.

"This year I expect to come back and play some very good tennis in all the important tournament," he said.

Ferrero's comeback starts on Monday in Auckland where he is aiming for his 12th career singles title at the Heineken Open.

Ferrero made the quarterfinals of the Heineken Open four years ago and says its nice to return to New Zealand, albeit in the unfamiliar position of 31 in the world rankings.

"It's good to come back here, last time I was here I made the quarters and I played really good and after the last year I want to start very strong," said the 2003 Roland Garros champion.

When he was last in Auckland, Ferrero played an unseeded Swiss player by the name of Roger Federer in the first round.

Ferrero won in straight sets but doesn't remember too much of what happened that day.

"It was a normal game, Roger was going up and I was playing very well also going up like him and it's good to remember," said Ferrero.

Since that time, Federer has gone on to become the dominant force in men's tennis.

But Ferrero, who has a 3-4 career record against the current world No.1, feels there is no reason he can't challenge the smooth Swiss.

"Why not? I beat him at Madrid [in 2003] and I think if I am 100 per cent I can do it," said Ferrero.

Ferrero's young countrymen, Rafael Nadal, will be back in Auckland in 2005, and Ferrero said it won't be long before Nadal is scaling the heights of the top 20.

"He's got a lot of potential, he's very strong and he's coming up very very fast," he said.

"After Davis Cup I think he's going to take a lot of confidence, [he will gain] a lot of experience from those two matches and I think he's going to be in the top 20 but he has to work a lot because the tour is very hard."

After the Heineken Open Ferrero will travel to the Australian Open in Melbourne where he was a semifinalist in 2004, losing to Federer.

Iza must be annoyed because we keep digging up this thread instead of the other one.

Somewhat similar to Jogg's article:

Quote:
Tennis: Ferrero confident he can recapture former glories

09.01.05 1.00pm
By Dylan Cleaver

Four years ago, to nobody's great concern, Juan Carlos Ferrero met a young Swiss on court six at Auckland's Stanley St.

Within three years, both Ferrero and his opponent Roger Federer had enjoyed the heights of being world No 1.

Of course, Federer is No 1 now, and doesn't look like moving anywhere fast, but in that first-round match Fererro won in straight sets on his way to the quarter-finals.

Yesterday, after he'd arrived in the country from Brazil at 4.30am and was on the practice court by 11am, Ferrero couldn't escape the obvious comparisons.

The 11-time ATP tour winner - including the 2003 French Open - had a disrupted 2003 while Federer went from strength to strongest.

"Why not?" Ferrero said when asked if he can once again challenge Federer for the No 1 spot.

"Last year I beat him in one tournament in Hong Kong and he was playing very good as well." ( Exhibition match?)

It would appear geography or chronology aren't Ferrero's strong suits. The last time he beat Federer was in Madrid in 2003.

"If I'm 100 per cent I can give him a good match. It's not normal to win every week like he is. ( RogiFed is abnormal.) It's difficult, physically and mentally."

Ferrero is hoping 2005 is a comeback year after slipping out of the top 10 for the first time since 2001. A broken rib and chickenpox saw Ferrero miss five months of action, the main reason his ranking now stands at 31.

The speed freak - Ferrero is friends with Spanish formula one ace Fernando Alonso - aims to make the Heineken Open a catalyst for another climb.

"The last time I came here I made the quarters. This time, after the last year I want to start really strong," said Ferrero, who will meet a qualifier in the first round.

Other big names weren't so lucky with the draw. Hard-hitting Chilean Fernando Gonzalez will meet dangerous wild card James Blake of America. But the feature match will be a repeat of last year's final between third seed Dominik Hrbaty and Spanish tyro Rafael Nadal. Top seed Guillermo Coria plays 1999 Heineken Open winner Sjeng Schalken. Kiwis GD Jones and Mark Nielsen face Mariano Zabaleta and Potito Starace.

there are some really good articles that have been posted. I love too what he said about the G3, if he thinks he can get back up to the level that he was (and i know he can) then I believe him. I can't wait to see how he's gonna do in auckland.
