Juan Carlos Ferrero was nicknamed ‘El Mosquito’ because he was so quick around the court and also because of his slight physical build. Being called ‘The Mosquito’ is a form of compliment for the former world No.1 player, but his speed and ability to rally from the baseline would have been extremely annoying (like a mosquito) for his opponents.
Ferrero’s career highlights as a professional player:
15 ATP World Tour Titles
3 Times Davis Cup Champion
2003 French Open Champion
Former ATP World Tour Number 1
