    • I apologize and retract all the complaints I made here regarding your posts. Not an excuse, but I was new then and realize that I like your positive energy. It enormously contrasts with the awful and negative comments made about Rafa. I am not referring to constructive criticism.

      I have to admit though that some of your posts are long. However, others also have posted lengthy comments [I included]. Post on!


  3. VAMOS RAFA ❤️😃🎾💪
    All the best of luck handsome 🍀😍
    U can do it 😊👍


  4. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of imaginary coaching:)) Fun I think. We all have our fantasies!!!:) Indulge ashish.

    • you got it right its imaginary but it’s not my coaching it’s my views ………i will not make stupid mistake to even think about coaching him. it’s just i express the views the way i like to see rafa play

      and since some don’t like my views or have problem i will stop writing this way

      god bless u

      • I LOVE YOUR VIEWS ashish & Tennis SENSIBILITY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) You seem to really know Rafa’s game inside out!!!!! : ) I enjoy your wise feed back of his play very much!!!! : ) Also, thank you for always being modest, positive & classy with your comments. : )

      • maybe if you try referring to Rafa in the 3rd person, rather than the 2nd person, it will sound more like ‘speaking your thoughts’ rather than acting coach ……..

      • Don’t worry about posting your views. No objections here.
        What I do object to is the screen space “Fan love” takes up with his/her juvenile posts. Whenever I see “Fan love” name I just keep scrolling to the next post, usually by a seeming adult and not a six-year old.
        So keep posting, ashish on, because I do read them.

        VAMOS RAFA

      • Post ANYTHING you care to, within reason🤗. Don’t be dissuaded by those who don’t agree with you. Imagination has created the wonders of technology. IMAGINE ON

        RAFA ROCKS

    Just go Rafa go you know you can win this
    Use the confidence you have gained over the last few matches and play with aggression and just keep on Playing as you have done recently
    VAMOS Rafa x

  9. Hmm.. as expected he is facing a kitchen sinkn shot maker, so keep calm and get that aggressive attitude there in the match and just remember to bring that spinning high shoulder/ chest bounce in ur game

    And i want ur getting quickly to positions to hit shots, shot selection and ur forehand continue to be great as u done previous tournaments

    And now into the most important month of may just look for the perfect areas to hit ur serve and refine ur drop and lob shots

    A very best luck for tommorrows match

    Vamos rafa vamos
