Juan Carlos blog : amazing sensations !

How are you? The truth is that long since I did not write and I apologize. I always like to be in contact with you and your feedback is what I love most. The Stuttgart tournament was incredible, I did not expect to win! all I wanted was not to be hurt and then the results came. After I had slight discomfort in Hamburg (due to muscle contractions) against Cedrik, a former player of our academy, and finally back to Umag, and succeed in reaching the semi-finals was amazing. Now, after spending a few days at the Academy, I'm back in the United States to play in Montreal, Cincinnati and US Open. I also want to send a big kiss to Grandma Antonia, a friend from Argentina, which is absolutely great. I hope that from now on everything will be fine and I can find my tennis and meet all my fans. Kisses to all and thank you for your support.

*for his comeback tournament on the circuit after yet another injury, Juan Carlos has not missed! he has shown all along the tournament his ability to play well and get back some matches in his favor against Youzhny which for me was the match of the tournament! Ferrero has more strength of a great mind, something we had not seen for a long time. I hope this tournament will be the beginning of a long series of victories for Juan!
* In brief:
- Juan Carlos invited his father to join him after the awards ceremony to offer him the car promised to the winner. Nice gesture of his part :)
- after this tournament Juan said he wanted to play still for 2-3 years! a real good news!
