  1. Rafa is so tough mentally, physically and emotionally like no other player! Unbelievable and this is why i love him so much such an inspiration ! I’ll be setting my alarm for 4:30 am in Toronto to cheer my # 1 on ! I just wish I can give you a big hug Rafa ! Best of luck and stay strong !

  2. Best of luck in your match against Dudi Sela! He appears to be a hard-working scrambler
    on the court. Hope you are feeling much better for this one. Hopefully it will be cooler
    and less humid since you are playing a later match! I look forward to another
    awe-inspiring match! Vamos, Rafa!!!

  3. Rafa needs to play Sela the same way he played Youzhny – a steady stream of DEEP shots to Sela’s righty one-handed backhand, until he gets a short return, then pound the ball HARD & DEEP to Sela’s forehand. Keep unforced errors to a minimum by avoiding risky sideline shots, and those into the net. Ignore the naysayers. You can do it Rafa. VAMOS!!!

  4. We’ve learned to suffer with you, but when the game is over we think… How fantastic was it !!!
    And the most important reason of our loyalty is that you always try to do your best. When you loose is giving the best of you and when other tenist players can never see a litlle bit of light on the horizon because they are loosing severely, we always have the hope of your victory because YOU NEVER GIVE UP !!! YOU ARE THE BEST EXAMPLE FOR THE YOUNGEST GENERATIONS !!! KEEP ON FIGTHING LIKE THIS !!!
    Rafael, another Rafa, from Frigiliana, Málaga, Southern Spain.
