Austrlaian Open
21 January 2008
D. Ferrer/J. C. FERRERO 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1
An interview with: JUAN CARLOS FERRERO
Q. It was a big match. Did you expect it to be that difficult?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Always play against David is difficult. He doesn’t do a lot of mistakes in the court. Physically he’s very complete, so is very difficult to win against him the points. You know, you have to fight all the time. I knew before the match that it’s going to be difficult.
Q. Do you think the fact you know each other so well made the match so close?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Yeah and no. I don’t know. I don’t know. I think we both play good level, so it’s the reason it was everything close.

Austrlaian Open
20 January 2008
J. C. FERRERO/D. Nalbandian 6-1, 6-2, 6-3
An interview with: JUAN CARLOS FERRERO
Q. When was the last time you played so well?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Well, I came playing this well since — you know, last year at the end I play good matches. You know, last week in Auckland I played also I think a good level. But, you know, anyway, I’m improving. When you play matches against like the top players like today, you know, you want to make your best. And I think I did it very well.
Q. What did you like about your game today?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: My serve, and also I think I reach all the opportunities that he gave me, breakpoints and set points. I play very aggressive all the time and I didn’t miss it. You know, it’s completely happy about it.

Spaniard charges into quarterfinals
from the official ATP website
19 January 2003
Juan Carlos Ferrero is making up for his lost opportunity in Melbourne last year by winning through to the Australian Open quarterfinals Sunday. Ferrero, who turns 23 next month, stopped dead in its tracks the charge of 18-year-old Mario Ancic with a brutal 6-0, 6-3, 6-2 victory over the Croat.
It is the first time Ferrero has passed the fourth round of a Grand Slam other than at his beloved Roland Garros, where last year he was the beaten finalist and a semifinalist the two years before that. Ferrero missed the Australian Open last year through injury.

Juan Carlos Ferrero took a walk on the wild side, touring Melbourne Zoo on a day off from his tennis duties.
Spaniard Ferrero, who’s cruised into the third-round of the Australian Open with the loss of just 23 games, took time out to check out some of Australia’s most famous native animals during his day trip.
Some sunbathing koalas and a posse of hungry ‘roos were big favorites with the No.4 seed, who also took the opportunity to pet a friendly wombat during his visit.
There will be no monkey business for Ferrero on Day Five of Australian Open 2003, however. He faces wily Frenchman Fabrice Santoro, the tournament’s No.28 seed.
