    I also was impressed by Rafa’s performance. Sports especially professional topsports can be very harsh and unpredictable. Rafa was the one who used to beat Novak every other game. I don’t for a second believe Rafa is fading. No one how ever good can keep winning all the time. Novak is no excetion to this. Besides, what ever more lies ahead for him, he won’t be able to rewrite history. Check it out, at what age did Rafa win his maiden major and Novak respectively? Moreover Novak has never wun the hearts and minds of the people worldwide like Rafa and Roger has done throughout! These two have been and still are tennis greatest goowill embassoders. And Novak is aware of this! So even when Rafa is losing matches these days, he does so graciously. Just look at him entering the court, what a figure, what a character! Rafa dwars Novak wnichever way you look at it. Let’s face it:Tennis can’t do without the the likes of Rafa and Roger.So let’s- Novak included- hope and pray these true legends of the game can stick around for many more years to come! Vamos Nadalisimo!

    Vamos Rafa, you played a great tournament. Your match against Nishikori was as the Rafa of 3 or 4 years ago played. Your first set against Djokovic was great and clearly it was your set to win. Keep on believing in yourself Rafa you MUST because I know you will do it if you do. I still believe you will bite the French Open trophy this year I hope that you believe too. God bless you Rafa, Love, Marylynn

      It’s alright Rafa Fans if he was beaten by Novak in Indian Wells… just keep believin that Rafa will soon come back and R O A R!!!! again…. The fact that Rafa is taking all his efforts, then i’m happy. Hot shots during their match in Indian Wells is a good sign that he can still do his best. Vamos Rafa!

    Again, Francisco Roig helped Nadal to return like what he did in 2013. Of course it can’t be exactly like what happened in 2013 but still it is acceptable.
    With Francisco, Rafa is more confident, his shots land deep enough and still be able to cause trouble to Djokovic- the current world number 1.

    Please uncle Toni! Let Rafa go! Francisco Roig or another professional would only be good for Rafa. It’s now or never!!!

    Rafa had a great tournament this week and I love uncle Toni ,but he wasn’t with Rafa this week and he played with more confidence , another member to their team would certainly help.Novak played not so good without Boris that said I don’t quite believe Novak’s performance he acts like he’s struggling but still manages to win . I think he’s playing a game to make the other players think he ‘s not at his best so he can terminate them at the French Open.Don’t like either players in the final but COME ON RANOIC

    Lot of positives, great first set that he should have won . Disappointing that he was broken twice in the second . Rafael was disappointed and that too is positive . Still, small margins make the difference and ND had that element. . No luck either and in sport that counts. Overall a very impressive week . Now to build on that,stay confident and positive .

    You are on the brink of a breakthrough. You are making it harder and harder for them to beat you. Keep up the great work and keep that fighting spirit alive.
