  1. You were terrific today Rafa. Keep up the good work, n don’t play under any pressure. You’ve had a long reign my boy n will continue to be the King of Clay regardless! May God be with you n bless you. Vamos Rafa. Your Aussie Nana. 😃😃😀🎈🎈🎈🎈

  2. Rafa slowly getting in form. He was strong. Now if he improves on his forehand and gets more aggressive with it he has a good chance of winning La Decima.
