Our champ will play  Paolo Lorenzi next in Acapulco on Wednesday.


  1. Rafa how VERY WELL DONE as I saw Misha play
    Andy Murray at the Australian
    Open, and he really stepped it up.

    So great work

    All the best for your next game,

    Love and PRAYERS,


  2. Had to record the match on sky sports due to being played through the night UK time. Watching it back now. Vamos Rafa! Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations Rafa – You played great 🤗👍🏻
    Love that amazing smile of yours 😃❤️

    VAMOS CHAMP!! 🎾💪🏼😘🍀

  4. Well Done Rafa, Couldnt be more happier for you , didn,t see the match it wasn,t telivised down here in Aus, more,s the pity, they had the women on instead, Hope you make the Quarters then i will be able to see you in action Vamos Rafa

  5. Congratulations, Rafa 💪🏻👋🏻🎾. As expected, M. Zverev raised his game and was much more confident but apparently he still has a long way to go to make it competitve with our champion.

    Love to see Rafa hitting many winners (28 in 79 minutes), quite many of which are blistering passing shots of course. Still his shots often land short and his service games need to be more solid, especially with the prospect of a final with Djokovic. As long as they are solid solid, he has all the chances in the world to cross any hurdle. Can’t wait for Sunday!


  6. Awesome Match Rafa…Love Watching You Play and that Backhand of Yours……Just Simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!! 🖒🎾😄😉

  7. I’d like to know why he is wearing a bandage on his knee, does someone know something about it?

    • I had the very same question. He looked really sharp on the court for his first match since the AO.

    • Me too :-(. Guess we’ll be hearing from him soon about this. His presser hasn’t been uploaded yet. Hope it’s more for precaution and nothing serious. 🤞🏻
