JUAN CARLOS FERRERO
DATE OF BIRTH
Ferrero began playing tennis at age seven with his father, Eduardo, who regularly travels with his son. At the 1998 Roland Garros juniors, it was clear Juan Carlos Ferrero was going to be something very special. In the following year, Ferrero was named ATP Newcomer of the Year.
Twelve months later, he helped Spain capture its first Davis Cup title and for four seasons he was the man to beat on clay. El Mosquito’s slight stature, speed, finesse and ability to conjure winning strokes from nothing delighted the purists and his willingness to improve on other surfaces was rewarded by a rise to the pinnacle of the sport. Between 2000 and 2003, he compiled a 111-25 match record on red dirt and winning three of his four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophies. In 2003 Ferrero captured the crown.
