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...

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.

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

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

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.

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

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!
