Vamos Rafa & Garbi!



  1. I wonder if it would have been a better idea for Marc to play the mixed with Gabine? Marc is on fire right now and full of beans. Rafa needs his energy – it may be one match too far.


  2. Wouldn’t it be great if Rafa came home with all three Olympic medals no matter what their colour. Only time will tell


  3. What complete draw? No mixed doubles on that link provided, just singles and doubles for men and women. That Rio site is as slow as a sloth when updating.
