    I was disappointed that Rafa lost to Thiem yesterday , At 4-4 in the first set after breaking Thiem to even the set , Rafa netted 2 easy unforced overhand volleys to give the break back to Thiem who proceeded to serve out the first set . . The match was determined by Rafa playing too nervously and not being confident enough . I think Rafa will have a tough time in Rome but will definetly prevail at Roland Garros on the slower red clay . I look forwrad to the French Open and Rafa’s 11th title . Vamos Rafa forever .

    1. What really got me nuts was some fans having Rafa out before the first set was even finished.

      I hope Rafa rebounds in Rome. Wishing him a great tournament and he will have heavy competition. Winning the French would be stupendous.

      RAFA ROCKS

        Well Margo, that’s never nice but it clearly was one of those days. Watching Nadal for years, makes recognizing this rather easy.

      2. Having watched Rafa for so many years what is recognizable is that sometimes he has a slow start. As recognizable as his dimples.

    Rafa I am sure you were feeling pretty tired after all your tennis of late.

    I didn’t see it but apparently Dominic played a strong game.

    All the best for a rest, regroup with Carlos and your team,

    and I pray for a strong time in Rome.

    love and prayers,
