“Tribute To Juan Carlos Ferrero” (From: Marca)

Translated from: “El Godó homenajea a Ferrero” (Marca, April 25, 2013)

It was just before the second game of Rafa Nadal’s match against  Benoit Paire at the Barcelona Open, tournament organizers paid tribute to the great clay courter Juan Carlos Ferrero, who shone in the early part of the century and lost in 2001 to Carlos Moya in one of the best French Open finals in recent times.

Ferrero, who retired from official competition last October after his final tournament in Valencia, of which is now director, was presented with a crystal trophy by Albert Agustí, president of the Catalan club and Albert Costa, tournament director.

‘Juanqui’, retired with 16 titles under his belt, including the 2003 French Open.
