  7. Rafa needs to keep winning in straight sets. He can’t afford to burn himself out mentally and physically by playing 4 & 5 set matches against players he should dominate. Rafa must stay in attack mode, regardless of the score. He can’t let inferior opponents push him all over the court like they did in Rome, Madrid, Barcelona & Monte Carlo. Rafa must control the rallies by hitting earlier, harder, flatter & deeper at every opportunity, because that’s what it takes to defeat Djokovic and win this slam. VAMOS!!!
