    • For Alejandro Barra: I do not understand much Spanish. But if I am correct, you are wondering, just as I am, how low was the first serve accuracy of Rafa with his game against Bolelli.. Was it a deliberate tactic? Was the first serve a give-away? Even after only the first set, I was thinking “Rafa should be texting Carlos Moya already to reserve a practice court already for his service shots.” And then the rain delay should have given him and Carlos enough time to review statistics. Apparently, he did not — as shown by the again poor first- serve percentage in the continuation of the third set. Oh, but then again, I am over-thinking, maybe?

      Regardless, I am still shouting Vamooos! in my heart.
