Of course wearing a parachute! <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> I have just found this cool pic. Hehe, Ferrero really knows how to have fun on holidays! In order to see the pic go to <a href="http://www.marca.com/la_entrevista/ferrero011124.html" target="_blank">http://www.marca.com/la_entrevista/ferrero011124.html</a><br />There you'll also find an interesting interview (in Spanish though)

Good pic <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

He said that he expect to face Guga again in Paris, but instead of semis like 2000 and 2001 was, the finals <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> And he expect to win. I agree with Ferrero, about he and Guga facing each other in Roland Garros finals in 2002, but would be great for Guga and for Brazil if he win there for the 4th time <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> !

And OMG!!! He loves Guga!!!! LOL... How many times he mention him in his interview <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> Vamos Juaan! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Hmmm Becool, in another post you didnt even inlude Juan Carlos in the top 10 for the next season and now you seem to be a big Ferrero fan... That's quite strange lol

Ok, I'll try to translate a couple of things <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

What do you think about your results in 2001?

Frankly I think its been a very good year. I'm ranked 5th and there are very few points of difference from the top. After winning the Davis Cup in Barcelona my objectives were Roland Garros and the Master. Nowadays I can say that I reached the FO semis and qualified for the Masters.

Is it frustating losing 2 consecutive years against Kuerten when you were so close to the final?

Actually, yes. However last time I played him (the Master) I won, and this gives me confidence for the next time. If I play again against him in the FO I hope it to be in the final.

In spite of being considered a clay court specialist, you have said a couple of times that you dont like this.

I think I'm quite good on hardcourts too. We (the spaniards) didnt play a good role in the second part of the year. Personally I reached the QF in Lyon, the SF in Sydney and also I didnt have luck in the decisive points.

I think you really had bad moments in the FO, because everyone considered you were the favorite to win the title.

What annoyed me was that everybody was expecting a Ferrero vs Kuerten confrontation before even the tournament started.

2 weeks ago you played the Master in Australia and you already said you were getting ready to reach the #1 in 2002

Yes, that's one of my objectives, specially since I've been so close to it in some moments of this season. I wanna make a good start in Melbourne coz last season I lost in the first rounds.

After seeing all this "Hewittmania", do you think he'll become the next Sampras for the next years?

No, I dont believe in that. Personally I think it will be only for a little period. Its very difficult to keep that spot since there are so solid and consistent top 10 players. Nowadays It's almost impossible to win the 13 GS that Sampras won. He hasnt wont the FO but he is the best tennis player ever.

Are Ferrero, Hewitt and Safin the "next generation" for the incoming years?

Yes, there's no doubt about that. You only have to look our results, although I'd add some other players like Federer, Roddick or Haas, also very talented youngsters.

Are you afraid of the 200km/h serves from Roddick?

Tennis is much more than powerful serves. I have just defeated Ivanisevic in the Master and he is one of the best servers.

Refering to the "New balls" guys, do you think Hewitt is far away from the rest?

Well, he isnt that far. There are ver few points of difference.

----------------------------------

Lol, I'm tired. I'll continue later <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

TOT : Just because I didn't included Ferrero in my ranking of 2002, this don't mean he is not included in one of my favourites... In fact he is! I never said that I hated or disliked Juan... <br />ps: I forgot to include him, and I'm lazy to correct <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

But Juan and Guga will create some fabulous match on clay, I'm sure they will <br /> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
