First of all, congratulations to Celia – the winner of JCF’s 2009 calendar! A huge thank you to everyone who entered!! :D
Some results from last week:
rd 1: d. Albert Montanes 6-7(4) 6-2 6-2
rd 2: d. Brian Dabul 6-1 6-2
QF: lost to Thomaz Bellucci 6-7(5) 6-1 3-6
Considering he had injury doubts coming into this tournament, a couple of wins is a good sign! Let’s hope he can improve this week in Buenos Aires. His 1st round opponent is Agustin Calleri.
See inside for the full draw!

JCF’s blog post from 12th February!

Hello everyone, today is my 29th birthday and I wanted to thank you for all your support on this special day. There is everytime more and more people from everywhere in the world signing up in our blog and this makes me so happy and Im tremendously thankful to all of you. About my match against Dabul…it was easier than I thought. The conditions of the courts were terrible and it was very difficult to move well (I ran to get one ball and I felt down at the end of the first set and we had to stop the match for about 15 minute). Today I play quarters against Bellucci (BRA). He is left handed and he has a agressive forehand and serve. I hope we can all celebrate my birthday with a victory today.

Regards from Brasil

Hola a todos, hoy cumplo nada mas y nada menos que 29 anos y queria sobre todo agredeceros todo vuestro apoyo en un dia tan especial. Cada vez son mas los amigos y amigas que se meten en el blog desde todas las partes del mundo y de verdad que estoy muy agradecido. En cuanto al partido de ayer, fue un partido mas facil de lo esperado. No conocia a Dabul y entre muy centrado por lo que pudiera pasar. Las condiciones de la pista eran terribles y se hacia muy dificil moverse ya que resvalaba demasiado (hasta el punto que tuve una caida algo aparatosa que hizo que parasemos el partido unos 15 minutos). Hoy juego contra Thomas Bellucci (BRA). Es zurdo y tiene un juego agresivo sobre todo con su derecha y su servicio. Espero que todos podamos celebrar mi cumpleanos con una victoria. Un abrazo J.C

Here as come the Brazilian tournament. Though not very spicy, the draws offers a tricky first tour to unseeded JC, against compatriot Montanes, seeded 3. Going through would be a nice promise.
See the whole draw inside….
You can watch JC match live, scheduled at 7pm GMT on the streaming of the tournament website (thanks Guus)
And good luck JC.

Hey everyone, Im at a internet cafe right now. As you may already know Im playing tomorrow against Albert Montanes. Its not the fisrt time I played against him but he is playing really well on clay and he is seeded number 3 on the tournament. Yesterday I only did fitness because I have some pain on my wrist and I did not want to force it. Im going back to the club this afternoon to practice tennis with my coach and see how the wrist is going. I hope it is fine tomorrow. Take care and keep writting11 Regards from Brasil. J.C
