  6. Congratulations Rafa ! In tennis one has to be complete on the game and mentally! You was able to manager all the situation so very well done deserved win ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘โค

  7. Lovely to see that so many other famous athletes took time to acknowledge Rafa’s victory, particularly David Ferrer, Diego and Juan Monaco. Another wonderful achievement , winning title number 8 in Rome.
    Rafa used all his skill, strength of mind and character to come back . Difficult to analyse how he lost set number two by so much . Know Zverev upped his standard but Rafa baffles me.
    Despite the rain I felt that Rafa would break back.
    Time for a little rest and hope he takes off in his wonderful Beethoven and relaxed with the sea and the sky all round him.
    Wonderful champion Rafa ๐Ÿ˜

  8. Happy to see Rafael so ecstatic after win๐Ÿ˜Soak it in and enjoy every moment๐ŸŽ‰

  9. I think Rafa is a cross between a super-hero and a magician. How he continues to excell and compete no matter who the oponent, what the adversity or what the deficit, he’s simply remarkable. Each generation breeds a new hero. Before Rafa it was Borg, but Now Rafa is my hero this generation and generations to come. He is by far the ultimate fighter and competitor.

    I also want to extend congrats to Alex for his amazing run the past few weeks. He also has a great team around him.

    Rafa, enjoy this super-sweet, hard-fought victory with your team, family and friends back home.
    You continue to mesmerize us!
