  2. Shame on TSN. no coverage AT ALL of Indian Wells over the first weekend, in Winnipeg at least. Lots of darts, poker and yippee cycling! Let’s hope this week we actually get some tennis. jean Palmer Winnipeg Canada

  3. What an impressive and business like display, Rafael did not intend hanging around and looked strong and confident. Loved the colour combination of his outfit. What wonderful support he had from the crowd. Onwards and upwards.

  4. Oh no… I miss all the energy exhibited by Rafa!! Hope to watch the replay soon. So glad to know from all of you that Rafa’s match was well played. Vamos Rafa!!

  5. Vamos Rafa! This was a good start of the tournament. Take rest and all the best for the next round.

  6. Loved having you playing in the Desert (India Wells). Why? Because you played here late in the evening, no phone calls, no interruptions. Just 2 great sets of Rafa tennis. Vamos the rest of the way!!!!

  7. Wow, Rafa was all business when he faced Igor. So authoritative and efficient. I loved
    how Rafa made all his shots and his serves were hitting all the right spots to dismantle his
    opponent. Great way to start at IW. Look forward to Round 3! The hunger and passion
    was so intense right from the start. Vamos!!!
