    • rafantastic,

      stop juding rafa on his looks and start judging him on his results. Nadal needs to win this tournament in order to go to new york with confidence

      • C’mon mjus, don’t you think that’s somewhat harsh? Rafantastic is one of the least controversial members here. AND THE KINDEST. There is no judgment in her comment as she stated the obvious. And then she wished Rafa well.

        I find her posts the sweetest and prettiest, and I enjoy them immensely. If she wishes to praise Rafa’s attributes instead of bloviating about what Rafa SHOULD do, it’s her prerogative.

      • Say what!!?? – I’m really astounded by that comment ๐Ÿ˜ณ

        Thank you so much, Margo – for your very nice words and approval ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒธ

        RAFA TOTALLY ROCKS #1๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

      • Thank you Rafantastic but please don’t feel you need anyone’s approval. Your posts speak for themselves; you root for Rafa and choose to express kind words toward him always. I was happy there was only one from the peanut gallery who chimed in but sad that anyone would support a bully statement such as was directed at you out of the blue; telling you how to “judge” Rafa.

        Fans will express what and how they feel about Rafa, a different player, or a win or a loss in their own sui generis way. That is part of what makes this site really nice.

        Just keep up your pretty Rafa posts and support him in any way you choose to.

        Some fans, such as yourself, are non-judgemental and that has to be respected, too.

      • Corretion:
        “Say what, mjus!!?? โ€“ Iโ€™m really astounded by that comment ๐Ÿ˜ณ”

      • ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Margo, fully agree with your very nice comment – thank you for your support ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿค—
        Your right – it’s all about showing respect ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿผ And don’t worry, I’ll keep supporting Rafa in my one personal way – nothing can stop me from that ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•

        RAFA ROCKS!! ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ€

        (By the way – am watching the rerun of the Nadal – Gasquet match right now. It was shown at night time here i DK so unfortunately I couldn’t see it live. – Very enjoyable match to watch – Rafa’s playing amazing ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜)

      • You’re just too cute! I read “my one personal way” and thought you used the word “one” to emphasize your unique way of supporting Rafa. Then I read your corrected “own” personal way. To me, both could be used. I am dying to take a graduate level English class.

        As I had hoped, Rafa probably had an “off” day. Glad you could get to see the Gasquet match. Enjoy and keep cheering our champ. Fingers crossed for Cincy.

      • Correction: “…my OWN personal way” ๐Ÿ˜‰
        (RNF I need an “edit button” ๐Ÿ˜„)

      • – And I bet you’ld do awesome at a gratuate level English class, Margo ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
        Fingers crossed for Rafa ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜

      • I’ve read two reviews this far today about Rafa and his journey to the Cincy final. These two journalists talked about Rafa and only Rafa, not comparing him to anyone else. They are obviously looking at Rafa in a non-judgemental manner. One did mention that Rafa did not take advantage of his opportunity to become No. 1 at Montreal. But that was it.

        I have eyes only for Rafa. LOL He will have wins and he will have loses. I hope he is back on a winning streak. One reporter mentioned that being numero uno again has probably given him a good boost. And we know that EVERYONE is going to try to bring him down BECAUSE he is No. 1.

        Rafa, HOLD ON TO #1 AND DON’T LET GO.
