  1. Wish u all d very best Rafa,kip focus neva let anytin distract u n kip up d u dat is in u dat make u d u dat u are.Best of luck.

  2. Wish you all the best Rafito!:) Hope you will show all these people who are against you this year, who is the real champion. Just focus on your game, be positive and forget about the rest of the world. We are always with you, no matter what. Greetings from Poland! 🙂 Vamos!

  3. REMEMBER THAT RAFA……never does focus on winning the FRENCH OPEN for the nineth time, no never the media, the commentators and others do that for him, or any tournament for that matter, his focus is always to go out there and play the best he can
    always in good physical shape, has the commitment and is healthy and well. He felt most of this at ROME as he said ‘his legs just didn’t carry him as he had hoped, a little tired after two big games against MURRAY AND DIMITROV then to face NOVAK who is always tough for him…but mentally, and he has had some issues with this lately, because his PHYSICALITY is usually one of his rewarding assets, and most times his GAME is always there, but lately he has struggled to get back to his best and it is coming, Rome is the best he has played for awhile. After reading that RAFA’S ‘worst slump’ is better then any other players best effort, on the planet including ROGER AND NOVAK, that gives me the CONFIDENCE that RAFA IS STILL A CLASS ACT, AND WE CAN EXPECT HE WILL BE AROUND FOR AWHILE YET TO GIVE HIS FANS AND THE WORLD THE BRAND OF TENNIS THAT ONLY RAFA NADAL CAN GIVE……KIA KAHA be strong RAFA…

  4. Great to see you Rafa, you look fit enough to take care of your would be usurpers , good luck and good karma and may the force be with you.
