  3. Never heard of this guy. Has he played in Wimbledon, French Open, U.S. Open or Aus Open? If he has, my old brain Is playing tricks on me. If you’re back to your old form Rafa my boy, you can beat all these young guns. What you’ve forgotten, they’re learning. Use some new tactics Rafa. One thing you still have over your opponents is your calm temperament Rafa win or lose. God bless you. Vamoose Rafa. Your Aussie abuela. 😊😊🎈🎈

  4. Dear Rafa: Congratulations on your win against Verdasco. So glad you are feeling good. And please remain healthy, I’m thankful that you are. Keep improving because I know you can do it. I have a to-do-list for you and how I wish you could read it (I hope somehow you do: 1)Keep the good confidence, 2)Don’t lose the baseline 3)Get your first serve in 4) Use that great forehand effectively 5)Come to net when appropriate, 5) Change it up more with down-the-line shots and keep him moving side-to-side 5)Believe in yourself and what you are quite capable of, 6)Play in the moment with intensity, 7) Lose the self-doubt, 8) Know you are capable of winning no matter who is on the other side of the net, 9)Keep the ball deep – no short balls unless they’re intentional, 10) Don’t be too proud to listen to good coaching advice other than Uncle Toni – another perspective is always helpful no matter what the topic or situation is, 10)Don’t think about how good your opponent is, no need to stress, he’s there because he has talent in the first place, so just accept it and relax, and finally,11) I hope you have a lot of good luck on court tomorrow. Love you Rafa. God bless you

  5. A 3-set nail-biter tomorrow shouldn’t surprise anyone. I’ve got my fingers crossed for Rafa. VAMOS!!!

  6. Ok, I will comment first. all the very best Rafa for tomorrow, an unknown for you, so play your best game, get the measure of him and find the way to win
