    Good luck RAFA, …………..CHOMP, CHOMP.

    As you said and always say the past is in the past. You are focused on what’s in front of you right this moment, Kholi.

    When you are done with him then Kei.

    I’m so happy to see that fire in your eyes, we missed it for a while.

    RAFA fan forever.

    Dear Rafa,
    Please explain to Mr. Low Confidence that his demise has arrived and that the King of Confidence has replaced him. Mr. Low Confidence will understand that he can’t win, not with all the fans, family and friends who adore the King of Clay.
    Sincerely,
    A Nadal Fan
    VAMOS RAFA!

    RNFs gives the impression that Kohlschreiber beat Nadal at the 2012 Halle tournament because Rafa was not well. “Kohlschreiber won ‘…..because at that time Rafa was not in good physical conditions.'” Kohlschreiber won fairly. Rafa had just come from winning the French Open and should have withdrawn from Halle but he didn’t. Don’t make unfair excuses four our champion. Did he say he lost because he was “tired?”
    Not nice to try to steal Kohlschreiber’s thunder .
    I am worried that Nadal is going to exhaust himself. Again he has been playing every tournament. According to his schedule, he has only about 13 days of rest remaining from now to RG. He has to finish Barcelona, then there is Madrid, and then Rome; all Masters. Will he have enough steam for RG. I want him well rested, focused and full of confidence.
    VAMOS RAFA!

      I agree. He lost to Kohlschreiber fair and square in Halle. Just like the loss to D. Brown in 2014, Rafa was never at his best there.
