  1. CANARIAS ENTERA, Y SOBRE TODO GRAN CANARIA CONTIGO RAFA,
    ANIMO. ¡ARRIIIIIBAAAA D’EL MONSTRUO!

  2. +So proud of you Rafa. Congratulations on your semifinal victory. I’ve been behind you all of your career. I pray you play your very very best tennis tonight against Stan and I hope you’re confident and mentally fresh. I hope the blister doesn’t hamper your play. Keep taking the ball early and playing on the baseline. It’s crucial that you do that. Keep the positive attitude and the intensity that you had against Roger, as it seems as if you stayed in each and every point the way you needed to during that match. Your shot making was great, and your strategy was too. I hope you serve great tonight and get many free points on your serve. Stay enthusiastic and motivated. Go out there with passion and love for what you do. God bless you, and Good luck. Love Marylynn.
