  1. I notice it goes deathly quiet on here before a Rafa match. His new Tommy ad is now on youtube that should help relax the nerves;)

  2. I am relieved that Rafa does not have to face Del Potro in the first round. I am concerned about his wrist, so I hope he will take it easy and enjoy his Olympic experience. It is amazing to watch all the other athletes asking for selfies.

  3. I’M SO EXCITED TO WATCH RAFA.💖 PLAY AFTER 2 MONTHS .

    WISHING YOU LUCK N ALL OUR LOVE.

    LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOU RAFA.💖 ALWAYS.

    STAY FIT N HEALTHY, KEEP SMILING.😊 😊 😊 😊
