  1. Mañana, 10.30 p.m. hora australiana, estaré viéndote en Melbourne. Toda la suerte del mundo y siempre contigo Rafa.

  2. Deep Analysis and Logic suggest that Rafa may likely exit before the QF with the Djoker. Because Rafa has refused to do what he’s supposed to do. He stubbornly believes he can still come back MAGICALLY like before. But times have changed, the field has leveled up, and you need to change with the times so that you will not be left behind.

    It’s rather SAD,but what else can we do, what else can we say again? A good champion should NEVER rely on luck of draws to win matches.Had Rafa done what we all expected of him, better results would have started coming in. But ”that’s what it is” ”Life is more important that Tennis”

    By the time our dear Rafa faces Bora, Fognini and Milos Raonic, he should then realise that Tennis is Life,

    Anyway, using Deep Analysis and Logic again, the final will likely be between Roger Federer and any of Stan Wawrinka or Novak Djokovic. On the women’s side, people should watch out for Belinda Bencic and Simona Halep. Serena Williams is not likely to win it.

  3. I really would like to know WHEN he is playing Borna Coric and what session
    and what court? When will we get this info?

  4. I’m just glad Rafa is back in the line-up this year 2015. We all missed him last year!
    That’s the first bonus. That Rafa is healthy and happy!

    No one knows how this is going to play out for any of the players. We’ll just have to wait
    and see and enjoy the spectacle. Who ever thought Kei and Marin would be in the finals
    last year and Marin would take home the trophy! (Btw they did play terrifically!) No one saw that coming so here’s to lots of fun, action and surprises for the next two weeks.

    All the best to Rafa and his team!

  5. Believe, Remember one match at a time. Do not look at the whole draw.
    Now play your best. We believe, you should also. Best results.

  6. Well how about a total revenge run? 6 of the potential 7 have beaten Rafa in the last 12 months.

  7. Well, it looks like it’s going to be a QF loss for Nadal. Provided he doesn’t get upset earlier.
