Juan Carlos Ferrero

Juan Carlos Ferrero Donat, is a Spanish Tennis player. He is a former World No. 1 tennis player. He was born on 12 February, 1980, in Onteniente. He began playing tennis at the age of seven, with his father, Eduardo who used to accompany him on his matches. Rosario, his mother, had always been a great driving force for him but unfortunately she fell prey to cancer and passed away when Ferrero was 17. Ana and Laura, his two sisters are among his greatest fans. Ferrero became well-known in the world of tennis in 1988. This is because of his place among the top two in French Open Juniors. By the end of the year he was 17th seeded junior. In 1988 he made his accomplished entrance by making to the finals of his first Futures match in Italy, though he lost to Miguel Pastura. In Spain, he succeeded in two Futures events in the finals and was ranked 345th.

The 2003 French Open was clenched by Ferrero in the men’s singles title, and the same year in September, he was the 21st player to embrace the World No. 1 ranking. At the 2000 French Open and the 2003 US Open, Ferrero was the runner-up as well. Until 2012, Ferrero had attained a final in each year of his professional career, but unfortunately he could not win until 2009. He suffered with a series of injuries which held him back for many years. However, 2010 proved lucky for Ferrero and brought him into the top 20. But now in 2012, he could only grab two more wins, which brought an end to his brilliant career.
