Rafa makes me extremely happy when he’s playing tennis he makes me forget about my struggles with Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis ! Today i took oxycotin I’m in so much pain and when I look at this young man I’m truly inspired, all the aches and struggles with physical injuries and performing his best and his last drop of energy on court ! What a joy for me to be entertained by Rafa but when he’s in pain I’m so sad for him I feel for his pain.Keep healthy Rafa love from Toronto!Good Luck tonight I’ll be waking up to cheer you on!
