Rafa on playing Alex:

I know him. He’s good. He’s young. He’s dangerous. Good player. So let’s see. Is a good challenge for me.

Alex on playing Rafa:

It’s an experience I am really looking forward to, playing a legend like he is.

But once I get on court it is going to be just another match. I am going to go out there, compete have fun and leave it all out there.

I have watched him on lot of TV, just like I did with guys like Roger (Federer) and before that ‘Rusty’ (Lleyton Hewitt). It’s amazing that I am out here playing against these guys.

GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!

    Francis Roig’s comments about Rafa’s forthcoming match vs de Minaur:

    “Rafa and de Minaur have never played [an ATP Tour match] before and I don’t see de Minaur backing down. From what I can tell, he steps up to challenges. For what he lacks in experience, he makes up for in his dynamic and gutsy shotmaking, and he can move around the court very well. From my perspective, we’re going to see some really good exchanges from the baseline, and that intrigues us as a team.”

    Roig divulged that the Kukushkin match “was taxing on Rafa’s body.” Rafa is practicing much less now [less than 1.5 hours] and is concentrating more on acclimating to surface rather than practicing hard. The team is already planning for future rounds, so we’re not just thinking about the next round; we’re looking toward what we will have to do in the later rounds. It’s a process and we can’t be slow to act.”

      Going to be tuf match…although I made harsh comments abt Rafa’s chances, I jus want him to prove me wrong and lift the trophy eventually..I am just a die hard fan who can’t take Rafa’s losses lightly..iam jus lowering my expectations to keep myself away from the agony of defeat.

        Between June 4 and tomorrow, July 7, de Minaur will have played 16 matches. He lost 11 days ago vs Kukushkin at Eastbourne 6-1, 6-2 in R1. I see a Rafa win and it may not be as difficult as Roig and Rafa make it out to be.

        This is only round three but there are many other players in addition to Rafa who are looking very good if you look at their match scores.

        It is rare to hear from Roig so I am excited to see exactly what Rafa is working on in order to get ahead of the crowd.
