  1. If you want to see Rafa without his game face on, Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day is the perfect place to do it. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere with fun & good times had by all – a welcome respite from the dead serious, bare-knuckled, win-or-go home environment of the ATP tour. I watch it on TV every year, but never attended in person because I’m not a “kid” anymore, like I was when I rooted & cheered for Arthur Ashe way back when. VAMOS!!!

  2. Rafa is indeed a very supportive of people in all walks of life- the youth, the elderly and even the mentally and physically challenged.he never underestimates anyone as shown in the way he treats everyone on and off the court! Indeed a gentleman!
