  1. Goffin doing v well against Djok.
    I thought he had the potential to beat Djok …played a very competitive match against Djok over a year ago in Miami and he’s better now.
    We’ll see…

    Wonder if Rafa has even played Goffin, I don’t have a memory of it if so.

  2. Rafa, DON’T let Diego’s 5’7″ frame fool you. He won his spot to challenge you by beating Bautista-Agut [6’0″], and Struff [6’5″]. If you know the proverb, “Good things come in small packages,” don’t let Schwartzman be your poison.


    • Good luck later to day champ 😘🤞🏻Looking forward to the match 😍 – Go nail that too 😃💕

      VAMOS RAFA! 🎾💪🏼🐂🇪🇸👑💖

      • Did you know that Rafa, Serena, et al., did a Nike-NY publicity shoot at or near the High Line, an elevated garden designed by Dutch plant-world rock star Piet Oudolf? What a small world.


  3. LOL Yes, funny response from @Ruth.

    It appears RNF has made the correction. Not so much about an incorrect day as it is about a very busy person could have easily been confused, as I was.


    • @Connie No worries about my named being misspelled. Typos happen.

      I responded to yours @10:26PM but there was no reply link. I think unless one has already confirmed to follow a RNF post, there is no reply link in an initial comment.


  4. Good luck tomorrow Rafa, don’t know much about Schwartzman only that he’s the smallest player on tour at 5ft7 which i guess for a tennis player when most are 6ft + is short . Can’t see he will cause Rafa any problems but i guess we will see tomorrow

  5. Margins, it will be Friday, we know what day of the week it is, probably a typo. All the very best to,Rafa as always. By the way loved Rafa’s reaction to the win today, every so respectful to the birthday boy as he knows he can play much better than he did today. 🎾🎾👍🎂
