    Congratulations on a great match Rafa. You did not lift the trophy but you lifted the hearts of many. What a true gentleman you are. What spirit and heart you have. You are going to lift many more trophys before you retire – INCLUDING grand slam trophys I am certain of this. Please stay healthy and rid yourself of any self-doubt you have. (In my opinion, self-doubt stands in the way of a victory). God bless you. And the best of luck and health in upcoming tournament. Love, Marylynn.

    Yes, life is filled with “if onlys” throughout history – how many more slams, wins and titles could Rafa have had if Djoker hadn’t come along (he did manage Fed well enough, in the end) and his body had survived better.

    Unless I’m reading it wrong, it looks like first round doubles is against Inglot and Lindstedt??

    Go, Rafa, make it 24 wins!!!!!
