  1. i HATE SO MANY NEGATIVE COMMENTS FOR RAFA BECAUSE HE HAD A BAD YEAR. WHY DO WE TURN THE NEGATIVE COMENTS TO A POSITIVE ONES. I LOVE RAFA AND I KNOW HE WILL BE COME BACK STRONGER.

  2. Was waiting to watch Rafa play and now watching and once again feel so so so soooo sad watching him play. Except for a few good shots – wouldn’t recognize him. Plays like a novice sometimes.

    Just hope he wants to play again and rise up to great heights again. Vamos

    • Are you one of those persons that want to be different……….I thought Rafa played very well yesterday. i DID NOT SEE HIM AS A NOVICE. He did great.

      Hate to see comments just to get attention. What do you mean, just hope he wants to plain again……………HE IS PLAYING NOW….AND HE WILL PLAY AGAIN AND AGAIN.

  3. Just getting settled to watch your match on sky sports any minute now! Cannot wait to see you play again! Vamos Rafa!

  5. I’m in hospital Rafa, so win for me! God bless you. Vamos Rafa. Your Aussie Abuela.😊😊🎈🎈

  6. Once again, Rafa begins match play on the last possible day, putting himself at a severe disadvantage by having no days off between any of his matches.

    Same old same old for our favorite player, who by his own admission, prefers NOT to play matches on back-to-back days.

    Every coach on the planet lobbies tournament officials for the best possible scheduling of their player’s matches. Every coach EXCEPT Uncle Toni, who never got the memo that this is a major part of his job.

    VAMOS!!!

      • If it was just this tournament and a few others where he began match play on the last possible day, I would agree with you about the extra day of practice on hard courts. But it’s not just a few events. It’s the vast majority of events that he enters.

        Compare that to Federer, who begins tourneys on the earliest possible day far more often than not. Djokovic and Murray also tend to start play before Rafa does, but not quite as often as Federer does.

        Marquee players have long received scheduling favors from tournament directors – but only if they or their teams ASK for it. By all indications, neither Rafa or his team does that, despite the fact that he has told the press that he prefers to have days off between matches.

    • Your comments are rather unfounded chatting offish about Uncle Toni , Rafa, and his magnificent team’s work!!! Clearly you are one of those folks resorting to poor back door gossip carried by old former players & old frustrated announcers……….. many of your comments sounds similar in style & lack of wisdom to those of some old players their likes…. old former players only wish they have had a tiny portion of Rafa’s blessed success…. How Rafa & his magnificent team gets there it is, & has been all along their business!!!! In my opinion, you have zero reason to be chattering off about Nadal, his team or his tennis career…..Not Rafa or uncle Toni are like anybody else…. neither their outstanding, brilliant accomplishments ….. it is rather offish to be compering them over & over again to others…..
