"I'd say there's about a 40 percent chance I'll play."
-- Juan Carlos Ferrero on playing his first round match at the French Open.
"I am not that far away from becoming the No. 1 player in the world. I am only around 1,000 points away from achieving it. The key will be whether I can play better and more consistently on hard courts. If I continue to play well in the European clay court season and then take that form to the hardcourts in the United Sates, I could finish the year as the world No. 1."
-- Juan Carlos Ferrero after winning the Valencia title.
"I am taking a risk with my claycourt schedule. It is pretty heavy from now up until Roland Garros. I am scheduled to have one week off before Paris. Playing here is not as tiring as competing abroad. I wanted to see this tournament happen and now that we have the event, I want to see it grow."
-- Juan Carlos Ferrero in Valencia, Spain.
