  1. I too have very good and positive feelings for 2016, who would have thought that a few months ago he would be in the last 4 at the WTF and finish 2015 no. 5 😊🙂☺️😇😅

  2. rafa still missing that pep in his foot when playing and he has to hit the ball beyond service box area even when he his playing long enough from baseline which is use to play all years
    aggressive means u dont want to stand near baseline and hit long depth but ability to deliver long depth even when playing long enough from baseline stand
    he needs to any how to develop that energy in his hands or do string work of his racquet to get that done

  3. Rafa You Are The Best Tennis Player In The world !!This year was hard For You ,But You Made to 5th place That Is Awesome ,Keep up the good work & In No Time You Will Be Number* 1 * God Bless you & Good Luck In New Year 2016 🙂 🙂 <3 <3
