  3. Rafa got better results in this match against Sock than he did in his two previous wins against him even although Sock has improved since then.
    I was worried about this match but Rafa was very determined and focused. Hopefully he will keep this up against Fognini who is playing well but his victory against Nishikori was in part due to Nishikori having physical problems.
    We could be heading for another Fedal final but as Rafa says, one match at a time, so I must keep that in mind and not get ahead of myself/

    • Beverly, I was feeling down after the IW loss but when I heard Rafa said he’s confident he’s gonna play well at Miami, I took his word for it.

      Playing well is a relative term. No one can play his best tennis every match. But if he can play just well enough to win each match, that’s well enough.

      So even when he’s getting bageled in the Kohlschreiber match and I was so shocked, I still absolutely believed he’s gonna make a comeback. And boy he did!

      That’s Rafa for you.

      Now he’s going to treat the SF *extremely* careful. Unless he’s so unlucky, he’ll at least reach the final.

      Cheers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Well done rafa – I wasn’t worried today as you came out like the old days! Will be with you for the next round which is the semis – well done again – they are showing an old match of you and Roger in miami – what a treat!

  5. Skysports 1 is showing the hightlights from the Rafa vs Fed Miami 2005 final. Are they assuming another Fedal is around the corner?

    Fed is screaming out of frustration LOL. He also smashed his racquet in this match.

  6. Look at how Rafa elates! He’s so happy to reach the SF here. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

  7. Rafa played so well today! Now time for him to take out Fognini and one of the young guns to take out Federer ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Congratulations on the good win, Rafa!

  9. Rafa simply too good! Great to see him holding his ground under pressure. Now take out Fognini ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    • He knew he had to stay focused. This is the first time in a long time that I just knew Rafa would win. I am with him on his journey “to create pain,” for his opponent.

      RAFA ROCKS

  10. Rafa you played magnificently๐Ÿ‘i wasn’t expecting it to be so easy . You washed the sock and hung him out to dry . Good luck tomorrow against Fabio , just repeat today’s performance and you will have no problems . Will be watching Roger’s match tonight (9pm) to see who will be joining you. Susie hope you’re conference goes well and will speak to you and Vy later.

    • Maria I’m still worried when Rafa plays a loose game nowadays and gets broken quickly.

      Suise, hope your conference goes really well. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท

    • I doubt very much that Fabio will be a tricky opponent for Rafa. The three times he beat Rafa were during Rafa’s darkest professional year, 2015. Fabio’s post Nishikori interview was spoken quite well. I didn’t have to go and find it on the Internet to replay for comprehension.

      As to their friendship, this is what Rafa has to say, “But he is my friend, I know him well, and I know he is a very good guy. I am sad that many people don’t like him.”

      Fognini’s outburst, to which you alluded in a previous comment, occurred toward the end of his losing 2015 Hamburg Open. At his presser, Rafa praised Fabio as “one of the best players.” He had just won the tournament and it is doubtful he was thinking about Fabio.

      I expect Rafa to win but in straights.

      RAFA ROCKS

  11. Yeah! Rafs survives the BP. Sock serving to stay in the match. 5-2 second set. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
