    The doubles match with Rafa and Roger was so much fun. Thankyou so much. It assuaged much of the cynicism that can surround tennis at times. I have watched these two since they were first at Wimbledon…..where Rudyard Kiplings words still ring true . Inparticular ” If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two imposters just the same” and ” If you can force your heart and sinew. To serve your turn long after they are gone And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them ” Hold on ” . These lines for me epitomize the essence of these two men. They both have a grace, a sense of enjoyment in the moment and a sense of proportion in the ideals of each person on Earth be it in Sport or World Peace. Sincerely. Jean Palmer Winnipeg MB
    I believe the Kipling lines are written at the entrance to the Players Lounge at Wimbledon. And I am a homesick Brit, Cheers JM.

  4. I hope this is Rafa not trying too hard because I dont like how passive he is and so many errors. Where is aggressive USO Rafa ? The annoying part is his passive play makes him run so much more which is not good for his health.

    Would love to purchase a pair of the Laver Cup towels as a wonderful momentum of this amazing tournament. Go team Europe, go Nadal.
    Please don’t tire yourself as you have China tournaments coming up and you do have some points to defend while Roger has none. So want you to finish the year as Number one. My wonderful Christmas present.

    1. I too want Rafa to finish number one at year end. It was so exciting to have him introduced both days as world number one at the Laver Cup. I believe that he has only 100 points to defend, so that it not too bad.
