Ferrero, 22, defeated countryan Carlos Moya to win the 2002 title 6-3 1-6 7-6(7-4) in two hours of baseline tennis, stretched out by long rallies. The crowd called out for more, or was it Mo-ya? but Ferrero was not to be denied his date with destiny.

ROME (Reuters) — World No. 3 Juan Carlos Ferrero has blasted organizers of the Rome Masters tournament and the ruling body of men’s tennis (ATP) for discriminating against Spanish players.
“I feel that the Spanish are not being treated in the right way and it’s about time some of the Spanish players turned up and said something about the conditions of where they’re made to play,” Ferrero said on Thursday.
