Rafael Nadal: “Tomorrow I am not the favourite, that is obvious. When you play a player that is winning everything like he is doing, it is always going to be a very tough match to win. He’s playing almost perfect. He’s doing everything well, winning all the matches with not many problems. So when the things go that well, it’s difficult to stop a player like Novak.”

Vamos Rafa! Good luck!

  1. Vamos Rafa !!! Eres el mismo campeón de siempre, solo tienes que creerlo. Siempre serás el rey del tenis !!!!

  2. Rafa you played with lot of confidence today and yesterday if you can beat John and David you will beat Novak ! Play your game don’t stay too far behind the baseline and keep going to the net you will win tomorrow if you do that you are in great shape and my # 1 sexy and energetic player come on ! you can do it !

  3. Dear Rafa, it’s not the first time you gonna play Novak, you played him so many times before and also have win many matches (more than Novak). Its not that you can’t beat him, you beat him before. Its true that Novak is in great form right now, he is winning nearly every thing/matches this year, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t beat him. You are also in great form, healthy and don’t forget, it is very difficult to beat you on clay! What you need is a good/strategic gameplan, a strong mentality and a fighting spirit! You have that all, so believe in yourself and go for it! Make your fans happy and enjoy your tennis! Good luck for tomorrow and the rest of the season. You are my ‘King’ forever!

  4. Rafa you will always be the best player/person!!!! Just play your game and be the winner that you are!!!! All the best Rafa!!!! Do You!!!

  5. It’s a tough one. Whatever the outcome, I’d take it. Nothing can change the fact that Rafa is the King of clay forever. Novak can never ever win MC,Rome and Barcelona eight times in a row like our dear Rafa! Not totalk of the FO!!
    Rafa, relax, you’ve done enough: YOU ARE THE KING OF TENNIS FOREVER! You have nothing to lose; Novak, on the other hand, has everything to lose.
    Vamosssss Rafaaaaaaa!!!

  6. Rafa, wish I could say to you what you already know. You need to believe in yourself. You need to be aggressive, take the ball early, stay in the moment, and don’t worry about Novak – he is a human not a powerhouse monster in your head. You are more than capable. You are my favorite tennis player and person, you always will be. God Bless You be healthy in mind and body. Love Marylynn

  7. Vamos Rafa! All the best for the match!! You can win this! Take confidence out of the win today!! Vamos Rafa!!!
