  1. VAMOS DEAR RAFA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) You played a great strong Doubles match ….it was very close till the last ball……. I loved how you managed to carry the first set nearly entirely by yourself, and kept a close head to head in the 2nd….. but it looked like you worked alone. Sorry but seems to me you were fighting entirely by yourself playing against two across the net. V looked like a liability – much like as I recall w the TIE BREAK w the B brothers,….just did not seem to be putting a serious cooperative effort , How about playing Doubles next w the Indian guy that played Doubles so well w Sanya for the ACES???? The good news dear RAFA is that this was a competitive doubles match for you & naturally, there will be other opportunities. You are such a great competitor and you move beautifully!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) ENJOY EVERYTHING and your great way of focusing on the next match & playing your strong powerful game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) I enjoyed seeing your passion determination and passion to win today till the last ball !!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) You had a strong game with a close scoring.
    Enjoy your day sweetheart & have a great time playing next!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) VAMOS……VAMOS………VAMOS………… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) God bless you & your awesome team!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : )

  2. Good luck Rafa ,,,,,this is a great tournament for you ,,,,,,set you up nicely for the Australian open,,,,sending positive vibes your way ,,,,

  3. VAMOS DEAR RAFA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) WOW….. beautiful photos !!!!! Such GORGEOUS ocean & stunning sandy beach …… heavenly….. wind & all…….love it !!!!! : ) It looked very cold & windy…… still very beautiful….. & a nice welcome for you!!!!!
    Love the colorful shady Bedouin Tent & the juicy Arabic music…..The two guys accompanying you w the royal falcons are pretty neat !!!!!!! Lucky you!!!! : ) : )
    Have great time & lots of fun playing ………….
    Yesterday I forgot to mention that your impressive 7:2 Tie Break was UNBELIEVABLY EXCITING ……you are so good at TB …… VAMOS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : )

  4. Rafa has a cushy draw in Doha. If he plays like he did in Abu Dhabi, he should cruise to the final against Novak. The light & fast conditions in these desert tournaments are tailor made for our favorite player, providing the extra pace and depth to his ground-strokes that he’s been searching for the last two years. The conditions in Melbourne for the first slam of the year are much heavier & slower, so that will be a different ballgame altogether.
