  2. Rafa is so a lovely person. He is just the best. On an off the court. Always behind Rafa <3 <3 <3

  3. Rafa’s English has improved so much!

    As for his game, well there’re moments of brilliance but there’re ups and downs during the match. At least he’s able to assess his level honestly and happy with the way he fought through bad patches during the match, good for him. Sometimes I even felt that he intentionally got himself into such situations just to push himself to fight through those and came through in the end!

    I do feel Rafa is too defensive on clay; when he’s younger and quicker, he had no problem with that as he was quick to turn defence into offence. He’s no longer that young and is half a step slow, his younger opponents these days are playing the power game more than anything else, trying to blow opponents off the court. I feel Rafa needs to be more aggressive, steps inside the court more often and not allow his opponent (s) to push him around.

    A power player who’s playing well can blow anyone off the court, just like Stan vs Novak at FO, or Cilic vs Fed at USO, so all the more Rafa has to step up and play a more aggressive game and not allow his opponent to dictate ( the IW and Shanghai 2013 matches vs Delpo came to my mind, one where Rafa dealt with Delpo’s power well enough to win and one where he didnt).
