The draw for the Sony Open Tennis in Miami has been released and top seed Rafael Nadal has a bye in the first round.  In the second round Rafa will play either Lleyton Hewitt of Australia or Robin Haase of Netherlands. Rafa’s potential quarterfinal opponent is Juan Martin del Potro. He could face Stanislas Wawrinka, John Isner or Tomas Berdych in the semifinal.  Besides Novak Djokovic, Rafa could face Roger Federer or Andy Murray in the final.

Rafa has no points to defend, so he will have an opportunity to build on his lead in Miami. Vamos Rafa!


  1. Rafa has to watch it as the old order seems to be changing. Perhaps this new trend is due to the Stan win at AO. Suddenly every tennis player is now inspired to aim for a shot at the title! Big titles are no longer the exclusive preserve of the big 4 anymore! Therefore, our dear Rafa cannot afford to ”improve with every match” For him to win, he just has to get it right from the beginning to the end otherwise …………….

  2. I look forward Rafa plays with Tursonov and beat him badly. The poor guy was so impolite to Rafa.

  3. Rafa, wish you all the best for this tournament. Just believe in yourself – don’t be too humble. Go for it. You can do it, Champ.

  4. Waves of positive wishes to Rafael in Miami, let us hope that he is fully recovered and confident. Looking at Stan in Indian Wells tells us how injured Rafael was in Melbourne. Go Rafael

  5. Vamos Rafa!! You are the best and when you demonstrate your best with great feeling, you are unbeatable!!!!

  6. C’mon Rafa , bounce back in Miami , get the title ,I’m confident , you bounce back in Miami and will triumph ..Vamos

  7. +Bueno Suerte and I hope you’re feeling good, mentally fresh and physically at your best and with no back pain or any other pain that would hinder your movement. Please know that you are the best and can do anything that you set out to do. You must have Self Belief. Love you, Marylynn.

  8. Vamos, Rafa!!! Come out strong and win this! No one else is playing with tons of confidence, come out swinging!!!!
