Rafa Roundup: Federer says Rafa is still the same


… “Forget about the back. I don’t want to talk about the back anymore because my back is fine. The bad feelings were with my forehand and backhand,” he said, smiling in his post-match press conference.

… “But at the end, when you are on the limit, this thing happen. You can lose. I lost today. Congratulate him. He played I think better than me. That’s it. Life continues. Gonna keep working hard to try to be ready for Miami.”

…“I played bad,” Nadal said. “That’s all. I’m disappointed with the way I played. But that happens sometimes.” “I never found a good feeling when I was on court competing this year,” said Nadal, who needed three sets to beat No. 50 Radek Stepanek in his opening match. “I’m upset for that because I love this event. That’s fine. It’s impossible to be, every single week, in the last round of the tournament. I did for the first three tournaments of the year that I played. Today was an accident. I lost.”

… El balear, que pierde además 955 puntos porque defendía el título, cae ante el imprevisible Dolgopolov por 6-3, 3-6 y 7-6 (5).

  1. Rafa always dies his best and never makes excuses. Some who say he does are very wrong. You are a true gentleman, Rafa.
