    Great win against Grigor! If I could be Rafa’s coach for a month I would only focus on the serve! If Rafa could hold more service games easily I have no doubt that he will be able to win the slams again. In the returning games he creates more than enough chances to win matches. The problem right now is that the serve isn’t reliable. Yesterday it was really good at times, around 200 kph, but the consistency isn’t there. He needs to serve fast with a high percentage.

    Anyways, Rafa has a good chance to win this tournament I think… It is looking better and better.

    Some wonderful tennis and some “hairy” moments but our champion proved again that he is calm and confident in the pressure moments. That is so positive and reassuring. All support for Rafaaaaa

    1. J Beer says take an extra coach and stop whining

      Be careful what you wish for. Rafa in this form, takes 2 games maybe per set from Roger (who he used to own big time).
