  1. Rafa my hero congrats for your victory against Sock. You are definitely playing better now than during the first 4+ months. Hope you peak on your birthday!!! Stay calm, dont think about the best player in the world etc. Whatever the result you will always be my Rafa – the very best – my second son.

    I pray and ask all Rafa fans to pray that the weather forecast for Wednesday is false and it turns out to be hot and sunny and even if not, that Rafa will be aware and play accordingly. Please be aggressive – Novak is going to take your shots early to give him the advantage – take care!!! Anyway, VAMOS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All the very best in life to you on your birthday and always!!!!!!!! God bless you and keep you!

  3. Wow, Great match! Although Rafa was battle-tested closing out the 3rd set, it’s ok
    to face some adversity in a match and suffer as he explains it! Always love how Rafa
    regroups and regains his intensity and “never say die” attitude to close it out in the 4th set.
    Exciting stuff! Great effort from Jack Sock to bring the heat late in the 3rd set. So glad
    Rafa cooled things down from Jack in the 4th! Best wishes in the Qtr Finals! Just the next
    rung in the ladder. Vamos Rafa!

Anyway Rafael is through and let us support him as always. He is the champion. Frantically trying to buy a ticket through Viagogo, a challenge as ever. Vamos Rafaaaa
