    How lovely of Rafa and Andy to make a fans day even more special by signing their prosthetic leg, thousands may have their signature but this one will be extra special.

    Hi Maria England and jas_uk. Fabulous day on Centre court yesterday except it felt like I was in an oven it was so hot – that court particularly traps the heat. Thanks jas_uk for letting me know it was rafa’s fingers. For an awful moment I thought it may have been his wrist as I could see them bending over that area. Luckily it wasn’t. I have to say that I was riveted by Konta’s match. It was long and hard fought – over 3 hours I think and well done her. Sad to see Donna in tears after it though. Dustin Brown is a great entertainer and looks massive on court and has a great arm span but good result for andy. And rafa – last but not least – once again was magnificent live and in straight sets too. I’m speechless every time I am lucky to see him play live. A very long day but worth it. So tired today so I’m staying indoors watching Edmund v Monfils – good so far. Anyone know what time rafa is playing tomorrow?

      Hi Susie , you certainly picked the right day to go, I’m so happy for you that you managed to see Rafa and some other magnificent matches yesterday.Rafa has certainly bought the Spanish weather with him, but I can’t imagine how hot you must have been, what with the sun and seeing Rafa Lol. I’m guessing you need a relaxing day now to recharge your batteries for tomorrow. Watching the same match as you , and Edmund’s has been playing very well even if he is losing , keeping an eye on Novak’s match as well. Susie go on you tube and watch Uncle Toni’s latest interview at Wimbledon , he’s such a little imp , but very loveable. Enjoy your day of TV tennis and have another great day tomorrow at Wimbledon , hope you get to see Rafa on his practice session.

    Rafa has faced countless adversities during his life so I am sure he wouldn’t give a second thought to signing a prosthetic leg. He has empathy.

    Rafa can appreciate his almost career-ending diagnosis when his tarsal scaphoid malady was finally diagnosed.

    It is no surprise to me that Rafa was happy to sign a fan’s prosthetic leg. He is a champion in more ways than one.

    RAFA ROCKS 150%
