Back-to-Back Bossage in Buenos Aires

Posted by gauloises1 on February 22, 2010

Juan Carlos Ferrero, the man, the myth, the golden years. He beat David Ferrer 57 64 63 for his second Copa Telmex title in as many weeks – the first time he’s won back-to-back titles since 2001.

Hands up if you’re loving JCF’s late-career renaissance.

To be honest, I was in a haze of “OMG the grunting” for most of this match, so I can’t really speak to pertinent tennistical matters. I would say that while neither played particularly well during the third set, Boss had that little bit more energy and focus – probably because he only had to play one match yesterday as opposed to Ferru’s two. Still, it was a proper clay-court set-to between two players who know each other’s games incredibly well and both really wanted to win. Great stuff.

They love the shirt-change photos in Argentina. And rightly so.


Fair bit of drama queenage from both.

Lest anyone think there were any hard feelings, they spent much of the trophy ceremony giggling with each other:

And a good time was had by all.

    oh my poor poor ferru ='( the look on he’s face in the tophy photo…oh he looks sad!!
    and a sad ferru = a sad me.

    but juanqui is really on a roll at the moment isnt he? and they both take such pretty pictures, i suppose i can accept defeat this time because JCF is so pretty and such. but david really needs to win something soon.

    Happy for Boss though. I am loving this late-in-the-career surge. Loving it.

    These two…*shakes head* Their bromance is EPIC. I can’t wait to read Ferru’s diary entry about this match – I’m sure there will be gushing and JCF worship aplenty.

      Hee- I thought of you when they made the final.

      I am sure that if Ferru had to lose to anyone- at least for him it was JCF. I just hope he gets a title soon. But good on him for making the final.

    “Bossage” has a faintly obscene ring to it, too. I like it. 🙂

    Ferru is going through a rough patch that is almost epic enough to be named the Slough of Despond. But those laughing pics are beyond lovely. I soooo want to know what he whispered in Boss’s ear.

  11. […] all these match-ups many, many times in the past two weeks. Anyway, if we’re not going to get this level of sexy bromance, then this may not be the tournament for me. But you know … I wish them well. And does […]
