Vamos Rafa & Marc!



  1. Lots of complaints about not being able to see the singles and particularly the doubles yesterday! Problems in UK, US and Australia! There were lots of people on-line last night desperately looking for live streams and people in the US trying to log into the BBC! Some managed to stream doubles on Spanish TV. I got the singles only on BBC iplayer but only had live scores for the doubles. I sent the live scores link to a Rafa fan site – the reaction made me realise it had been my best deed of the week!


  2. Does anyone have a video link of this match or highlights of this match? and likewise a video of Rafa’s match v Delbonis? Thanks so much – it was not screened in my country!


  3. I watched this match and enjoyed it very much. I would not say that they “cruised” to victory, although the final outcome was never in doubt.
