Rafa on facing Ramos-Vinolas:

Tomorrow another tough match against, you know, against Albert. I know him very well. He knows me very well. Going to be a tough one. I hope to be ready to play well.

Rafa has won both previous meetings in straight sets against the fellow Spanish left-hander, in 2013-14 Barcelona and this year in Monte-Carlo.



  1. I don’t think playing two games in one day will tire Rafa too much. His match against Ramos was over in quick time. All I hope is he does not go out and have a practice between the two matches ( my constant worry with Rafa). He needs rest.
    I am also not happy about his having to play Nick as his next opponent. He is so volutile, although improved of late. I read that he was FURIOUS at the rain delay and saw a picture of him ranting at the unfortunate umpire as though it was all his fault.
    This may have an effect on his game today (hopefully).Rafa would accept that rain delays are part of the sport. The tragedy in Barcelona would be the thing that is on his mind.
