Rafa could face Fabio Fognini in the third round, Feliciano Lopez in the quarter-finals and David Ferrer in the semi-finals. A possible final is Rafa vs. Kei Nishikori.

Main draw play begins on Monday. Top seed Kei Nishikori is the current defending champion.

Here’s hoping that Rafa will celebrate another championship victory there this year. VAMOOOS!

  2. Yes Rafa, you can beat ND. Try not to praise him too much. You are feeding his mental strength more than needed and his ego too. You are a fantastic player yourself – believe in that and dont be toooo humble. Vamos!!!!

  3. I didn’t get to watch the match and so happy to read some positive feedback from fans. Rafa and team need to redesign their strategy to win against the top players especially ND who knows Rafa’s game so well. We love you Rafa and with you at all time. Vamos Rafa!!

  4. Yes, after watching the Nadal – Djokovic MC Semi-finals, I agree that Rafa can win Roland Garros for the 10th tenth! I’m sure that deep down inside Djokovic, he must have been dissappointed that he could not bagel a ‘recuperating’ Nadal, which can only mean one thing: DANGER at the 5-set French Open!

    There is nothing really special about Djokovic’s game – he is VERY BEATABLE!!!

  5. Just do it Rafa, you are closer to your tip top shape and I believe you can win your 10th Rolland Garros CROWN!!!

  6. So many positives to day and I am confident that Rafael can and will raise to another level . Just looked at semi final v ND and frankly hard to understand how he lost some games . Let is keep faith, Roland Garros the aim . Good luck to Rafael the man we are proud to support . Vamos Rafaaaaa

  7. Feel Rafa will win that one,Needs one step further,other than Nole today he d have won

  8. The way he played today, he can beat them all! Vamooooos Rafa!! And Now I know he can win RG for the 10th time!!
