  1. Dear me…who said Andy was a “contender?” Looks like the Brits were just handed a “shock defeat” by no other than Mischa Zverev.

    Rafa, expect the unexpected from any of your opponents in this AO. Be ready for all of them. You have been the favorite from day one so just keep up the pressure on EVERYONE.


  2. Yes and great game keep on moving up. Yes for me less sleep due to major time difference. You are worth it. Been following you since the beginning.

  3. Lovely interview and how the crowd appreciate him. Always realistic, analytical and open in his comments. Now to rest and recover for the next round. Proud to support this great champion, Sleep deprivation since AO started but he is worth it.!!

  4. Rafa did drop a set vs Monfils at Monte Carlo but I still like the score: 7-5, 5-7, 0-6.

    Get ready for your next match Rafa. Monfils has mucho energy. Monfils says he plays for fun, Rafa plays to win.

    All the best Rafa.


    • I think it will be a lot easier. Rafa has whooped Gael twelve times out of the fourteen times they’ve met. Both of those loses were at Doha, 2009 and 2012. Yes, he can do it.


      • Let’s hope it will be much easier for Rafa than it was today. But we also remember how tough it was in Monte Carlo when Rafa had to beat La Monf in the final to win the title. Vamos Rafa!
