    Congrats RAFA

    Now, unto Fabio, whom I wanted you to meet. He said that he CAN beat you. He has already sent a warning last year, not sure what has transpired between you and him.
    Any ways, remind Fabio like Stan, Andy, Verdasco and all others that 2015 was not all about them and more about you.
    Fabio is chomping at the bit to get you and YOU ARE CHOMPING ALSO. I never want an easy draw for you because you don’t need an easy draw. Easy are for losers and that YOU ARE NOT.

    Well, good luck anyways tomorrow and practice your chomping for the trophy ceremony.

    RAFA fan forever.

    And last note if you beat Fabio tomorrow, they’ll say he went on a walkabout blah, blah, blah good – a walkabout straight to Italy.
