Rafa loses Acapulco final

Rafael Nadal’s run at the Mexican Open in Acapulco is over as he lost 3-6, 6-7(3) to Sam Querrey in the final.

The American served 19 aces and did not face a break point in the opening set. Rafa fought back in the second set but failed to convert any of his six break point opportunities.

After the match, Rafa said:

He played very well, almost reaching perfection. I played under a lot of pressure because of his serve and baseline game. He left me with very few options, and the few I had he also played good. I have to congratulate him. I’m also very happy with my week and my game.(via AP)

Our champ is still seeking his first title of 2017, having also finished runner-up at the Australian Open. His next tournament is Indian Wells.

Win or lose, always with Rafa!


  1. Vamossssssssss Rafa your fans for ever good luck champ.we love you.xoxo🎾🎾🎾🎾🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👍👍🐕🐕❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. According to The Grandstand, Juan Martin del Potro will hold the 32nd-seed spot at IW and will get a first-round bye as will the 31-seeded players ahead of him.

    I am hoping for a replay of the 2013 final, a win for Rafa and runner up for DelPo.

    Raonic has withdrawn.


  3. Debby I’ve just read the bottom of your comment. So sorry that you’re going through this. Don’t worry though – the whole world is watching!

  4. Maria (England), no need to “eat humble pie.” Your apology is gladly accepted. Just now came across it.

    I did not mention who made that comment because it wasn’t pertinent to Elaine’s comment about thinking Rafa had won, or something to that effect. I quoted exactly what was written. I had no idea that you thought I was quoting you because the quote is not open to interpretation. Another reason I did not mention who made that comment was because I refused to open myself to abuse.

    Susie came just short of calling me a liar about the empty seats at the Lorenzi match. I did not see any clarifying comment about the seats eventually being filled except for va4favre’s explanation. He said “sold out,” so I was surprised about the empty seats comment.

    Maria (Serbia) with her “illiteracy,” and “stupidity,” comment about me. Who would even bother with these two if they were me?

    Regarding Novak, I would have addressed you directly, but then I would have to fight you, and the other two. He has pulled all kinds of on-court stunts but he is still a 12-time slam winner. I never liked him, even before his many titles.

    Elaine is not the only one who misread that Rafa had beat Querry. I also had to check the time Rafa was playing because I was sitting in front of the TV watching music videos. I did not include that with my comment to Elaine because I feel I would have been attacked. If Elaine and I made that same error, I am sure there are others. At least Elaine had the balls to admit it.

    Like Souix said, we are here as Rafa fans.

  5. I’ve said over and over again, Rafa needs to learn how to play Aces!

    These players that can play them to obtain a win/break CAN win the game!! Vamos for Indian Wells Rafa. x
