  1. Great job beating Anderson, but Rafa needs to play less passively/more aggressively to beat Berdych, who’s playing the best tennis of his career right now. He needs to hit the ball flatter, deeper, harder. Put more height on the ball to avoid all those unforced errors into the net. Go for your shots Rafa. Stop playing it safe. You can do it. VAMOS!!!
