Juan Carlos Ferrero - the true and classy gentleman of tennis - announced recently that he is to retire from the game and that the Valencia Open will be his last tournament. All careers have to come to an end, but as JCF is one of my particular favourites, its still sad to hear the news.
Its probably fitting that the Valencia tournament will be his final one, as I think he's part owner of it, and of course his academy is based there, I'm sure that both these things, along with his foundation work, will be keeping him occupied in the future.
As part of the celebrations of JCF's career, a number of personalities will be there to offer their tributes ... our Rafa being one of them. Other attendees will be Carlos Moya, Alex Corretja, Alberto Costa and Sergio Garcia. The line-up of players is also particularly good with Feli, Fer, Daveed, Nico, Marcel, Pico, David Nalbandian, JWT and Monfils ... to name a few.
I'm sure the Spanish boys will give him a big and very emotional send off. A Spanish article about it all is linked here.
Ummm ... does anybody fancy a bit of Winter sun in Valencia?? Just asking ...
