  1. very very close…… for sure there will be other opportunities moving forward!!!!! You had some beautiful shots Rafa & amazing returns ……the entire match you were the stronger tennis player….somehow his serve saved him in the last few moments………. God bless you sweetheart & Good night !!!!!!

    • Fan love : I’d like to punch you for these nonsense comments. look how Murray fight back against Dimitrov , how Novak took control of 3rd st and finished up the match and talk about few beautiful shots of Rafa?. Something is very wrong with Rafa’s mentality. We as fans should voice our concern to his team and manager.

      • Yeah fan love is the most dilussional of the lot. If she’s been on the Titanic, she’s be thanking the captain for his wonderful steering, prior to drowning.

  2. Dearest Rafa: All the best to you tonight against Lopez. Do not lose the baseline. You played with such good position last night. I hope you continue this and I also hope you continue serving great all throughout this tournament. Please stay Positive and play in the moment – you will continue to win if you do this. I pray that you stay healthy as well. The best of luck to you, and God bless you Rafa. Love, Marylynn

  4. Rafa to play his good friend Feli, so could be a little tough since they know each other well and have played doubles also together.

    Looks like Rafa is finally making some adjustments for hard courts, like serving 5-8mph faster on second serves and average first serves. And returning serves from much closer to baseline than before, 2nd serve return he was like only 2 feet behind baseline.

    Improvement required in pace and depth of shots, backhand shots are still way too short inside service lines, very easy to attack.

  5. I only saw the highlights. Positive and negative at the same time: 9 break points against Nadal, but he deleted them all. Negative: many, many balls half court or even before the service line. Anyone who has the W/UE stats?

  6. I wish you all the best I love you Island of mallorca have been there a lot and hope to be there next week for two weeks holidays second time this year,I think that you are a lovely man ,hope you do well in your next match vamos raffa.
