Possible Wimbledon QFs:

Djokovic – Berdych

  1. why is it that they always give rafa a tough draw ? why do they always give jokevic an easy draw? i am very angry !

  2. I THINK, RAFA WILL GIVE US A SURPRISE, AND HE WILL WON, I HOPE, VAMOS RAFA!!! YOU CAN

  3. Gosh, this is just too tough for Rafa, isn’t it? I’d be shocked if he even survives (the equally lefty and equally dangerous) Martin Klizan! No hope for Rafa.

  4. Definitely Djokovic has the “easiest” QF. Berdych can b a tough opponent but not usually for the top 4.

    Also don’t forget that Rafa, etc, only has to win against the person across the net. 🙂

  5. Rafa know he has won Wimbledon before…he knows what it take to get there..and yes I agree that they’re treating Rafa with no respect…go get them Rafa, remember you are still making history in the Tennis world…Good Luck and kiss some butts.

  6. I only wish Rafa’s knees, back and his tennis can carry him through longer than the last 2 years and if possible right to the end. It would be absolutely awsome if he wins. BUT whatever happens he is our no. 1. Let us once again try to be positive and send out positive vibes and thoughts to the universe. VAMOS RAFA!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Rafa always have tough draws no cake walk for him but that what makes him a great champion he will get thru no early exit for rafa he’s going to win Wimbledon for a third time letting one know he is getting closer and closer to fed tally of slams

  8. When the going gets tough…. the tough get going…. Rafa, always treats each player as his toughest opponent so it is not going to matter who he has. He is going to give it his best and play to win the match. he plays EVERY point, game, set, tournament with dedication and so no matter how much desrespect the tournament organizers show him, or no matter how difficult the opponent is…. Rafa keeps his cool, respect and honor and gives it his BEST shot so…. VAMOS RAFA & GOOD LUCK !!!!!

  9. Nadal tendría que luchar mas esta vez,a demostrado muchas cualidades que debe explotar más,como los primeros saques,en los aces,saco bien en Roland Garros,que trate de mejorarlos y aprovecharlos

  10. We all know he can do it as that rafa always finds away…just depends if he fully fit and playing well. Either way we love him regardless. Come on rafa I behind u know u can do this. Love tennis love rafa always xxx

  11. The best of all this is that Rafa won’t care who he draws against, or what seeding he’s given, or even what court he plays on. He’ll go out there and only concentrate on his own game and let everyone else get on with it. Class act. A pleasure to watch him play.

  12. I think it’s a nightmare draw for Rafa. He struggled against Klizan during FO last. Even before the draw , people were saying Rafa won’t survive the first round. Well I am not bothered much. If he wins it’s a bonus. Good luck champ! We know you will try your best!

  13. Klizan, Rosol, Karlovic. This is not possible folks. Only a miracle can get Rafa though this.

  14. well I am fed up with Wimbledon before it starts . they are treating Rafa with disrespect again , who well win , I really don’t care anymore, Rafa stick it to them. go on holiday.!!
    of course you wont , so go out there and ,power to you,xx

  15. Djoko v Berdy ? That’s a QF joke. If they get there, I hope Fed beats Stanislas. Way too big for his tennis shoes is Stanislas.
