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;)
GOOD LUCK RAFA!! DONT STOP FOR ANY SELFIES:D!!!
Good luck and Vamos Rafa!!!
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.
