  1. I am a big Rafa fan and love him very much and so I am very happy and excited when he wins and I know that he works very to get back to that #1 ranking where he belongs. There are those on this Rafa’s site who hates the very thought of him so I don’t understand why they are on the site. I imagine that they are depressed and lonely and so they are trying to join the conversation with great aggravation. The one who is supposedly “move in or move on” is someone who knows absolutely nothing about Rafa, his coach and uncle, Toni nor great tennis and the way Rafa plays, no one who has watched Rafa play will say that over the years he has not played offensive tennis. Rafa’s offensive games are what keeps the spectators, both at home and the ones attending the matches, glued to their seats. It keeps the commentators talking about his energy, both physically and mentally and have them screaming at how impossible his shots are whenever he plays them. These commentators are tennis players, some of them still play senior matches, people like the McEnroe brothers and Martina Navratalova. I think Rafa’s fans need to completely ignore these elements who trash talk.

  2. We all knew it wouldn’t be long before the thinker twins and cousin move in or move on reared their ugly heads ,if they really believe what they say and are not on this website just as a joke then maybe we should actually feel sorry for them (not) I’m sure Rafa’s team are out right this minute trying to track them down to sign them up so Rafa can have a REAL COACH ( what a joke) I think what someone said here before its probably best to ignore them as I think they feed off it,

  3. Interesting comments of prospective calculative play ……. Who knows……having watching Tennis for years, I am not buying the authenticity of Win/Lose results of recent matches between fed playing novak recently and the 2014 season……the results are not believable & raise questions…..

    VAMOS DEAR RAFA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) Have a fantastic time enjoying all your beautiful Tennis & lots & lots of fun playing next . You have taken w & m because of your TOP TOP TOP HIGH LEVEL strong & feisty Tennis …… VAMOS & enjoy the rest of the tour!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : )

  4. Just to summarize advice given to Rafa, by a concerned and true fan of Rafa.

    Be a loser – (lose in straight sets)
    Be a cheater – (forfeit the match)
    Be delusional – (to avoid Novak until the ‘right’ time)

    GREAT ADVICE to RAFAEL MAYMO. I’ll forward this to his team PRONTO.

  5. Great Thinker wishes to give a passionate advice to Rafa.
    Dear Rafa, I know this ATP World finals means so much to you having not won it before. However, we wish to advice/warn that you play ‘tactically’ against David Ferru in your next match tomorrow.

    Now, what does the Great Thinker mean by this advice? What we mean is that Rafa does not have to win against Ferru tomorrow! Frankly speaking, we advise that Rafa should play to lose in straight sets to Ferru so as to avoid playing and losing to the Djoker in the semis. He can avoid Djoker by losing to Ferru while we anticipate a Stan wawrinka victory over Murray. Hoping that Stan wins against Murray in 2 straight sets then Stan will have the ill-luck of facing the ‘wounded’ Djoker. And talking of a ‘wounded’ Djoker, anyone doubting this will need to watch the match between Novak & Thomas Berdych this afternoon: we predict a total annihilation of the birdman – 6-1, 6-0. And should Djokovic meet Roger again in the finals, Roger will need an extended period of prayers from his priest to avoid a most humiliating result of 6-2, 6-1.

    Hence, it is important (at this critical nexus of Rafa’s recovery) to AVOID Djokovic like the plague, so as to protect his slim Head to Head (23:22) against Djoker UNTIL he’s ready to play and win against the Djoker. Rafa’s game will reach that level next year 2016.

    • I would like to know since when Navak is the boogie man, he is beatable like anyone else but we know how good year he has had and thanks to the inconsistency of the the others players starting with Nadal. But nothing is forever, the good and the bad times. First he has to beat Berdych and later will see……

    • Once again, you are showing how delusional you are, and how little you understand anything about Rafa. Still do not understand why you purportedly call yourself a fan. Rafa would NEVER “throw” a match. Period.
      Rafa is not “afraid” of Djoker, or anyone else. He does not exist to “protect” his win/loss numbers. He is not even capable of thinking this way. Just like it is still a struggle to be aggressive. It is not in his personality. When told that he leads the year in % at net, he refused to believe the commentator.
      His demon this year was his doubt in his body, after it failed him in Australia, and subsequent ailments. This is what played havoc with his mind. He and his team have worked hard on this. It was always up to him, because HE took responsibility for it, and would have never blamed anyone else. This is why HE is solving it.

  6. Good luck Rafa! Wish you all the best and the next win. These 200 points would be very good to save #5 in the world.

    Vamos Rafa <3 <3 <3

  7. Really I was delighted to see you in original form & enjoyed the match against Murray . Millions of your fans eagerly waiting for u to be no ONE . COME ON RAFA .

  8. Rafa is FINALLY doing what I’ve been urging him to do for the last two years: hit the ball flatter, harder, higher, deeper. I’m not trying to take credit for it. He figured it out on his own.

    If he had a real coach, instead of a coach-in-name-only, he would have figured it out a long time ago and spared himself and his fans a whole lot of heartache.

    I hope he remains committed to playing more offensive and aggressive tennis. Confidence or no confidence. Nerves or no nerves.

    Fortune favors the brave.

    • Do you really think Rafa and his team have not known this? How arrogant and misled can you be?

    • Yes, really, how silly. Rafa and his team are/have been well aware of what he needed to do.This type of play was not what he grew up used to on clay. Duh.
      Rafa does not exist for your benefit or to spare your feelings.
      He is very good at expressing himself, I am sorry it is beyond you to understand how confidence after his body failing him didn’t allow HIM to play aggressive or move forward. You might try listening.

    • You really irk the hell out of me. Coming on here to gloat. “I’m not trying to take credit for it,” tells me that thought IS in your head, though, otherwise why would you even post such a ridiculous statement, when obviously, no one would give you credit for it in the first place?

      “He figured it out on his own.” In other words, this legend of the game, who has been world class since the age of 19, and has probably FORGOTTEN more about tennis tactics that you WILL EVER KNOW, has finally figured that what you, Mr. Nobody from Nowhere, has been trying to impart to him. How condescending can you get?

      Tell me, Mr. Sanctimonious-know-it-all, can any of us really know what goes on between Rafa and his team? Perhaps Toni was trying to get Rafa to be more aggressive-minded for years now, and Rafa is the one who has resisted, and only now has accepted the advice. Maybe that’s what happened. I wouldn’t profess to know since I have no way in hell of knowing that, but the point is, neither do you, You just assume things to fit into your totally made-up version where Toni is some sort of clueless dolt.

      I’m sorry for the rant, but ignorant people who think they know everything just annoy me no end.

    • Fantastic write-up, Move in Rafa or Move on.
      Like the Great & Deep Thinkers, you always tell the truth as it is.

      • Rather, the truth as only you two (of those on this FAN site) see it. Truth is not really subjective, though you two are entitled to your delusional opinions, certainly. Though your disrespect, especially towards Toni, isn’t ok. You are entitled to your misguided (IMHO) opinion, but to call it truth is just not so. It is YOUR opinion. This is what others here are trying to impart to you, but you don’t seem capable of understanding that. We are not naive, but, rather, we love and respect many things about our champion and his team, many that have nothing to do with numbers in a win/loss column. Sorry this is beyond you. In MY opinion.

  9. RAFA, as usual all positive vibes are being sent your way for your next match against Ferrer.
    I know you’re going to give 100%, so no worries there. I so wish at least one day I can see you play LIVE. What a treat that’ll be, until then I’ll be cheering, vamoosing and going through all the emotions at home.

    Well, until Friday……………. and good night to all RAFA fans.

    RAFA fan forever.

  10. Good luck and the best of everything during your match against Ferrer Rafa. Please keep the positive attitude and passion that you’ve shown. Stay healthy, confident and calm on court – as you need to be. God bless you, and Love, Marylynn.
