  2. Rafa has been looking so relaxed and confident on court and I really like the way he’s moving He’s also coming to the net more often to finish off points. I have good feelings about him at this Wimbledon. This is his time!

  3. Enhorabuena!!! Cada partido k juegas lo haces mejor…estás genial…siempre contigo…adelante!!!

  4. Rafa is too cute. In his presser he said he would be VERY excited to play Roger in the final if he makes it that far. Reaching the final would show that he is playing well.

    Rafa has always maintained to be the best you have to play the best. Yes, he wants to win Wimby but he said it would be easier if he could play a different opponent.

    I still think Rafa will win, with or without Roger on the opposite side of the net.

    RAFA ROCKS

  5. Best match so far. So happy for you after all the tough years in Wimbledon. Good luck for the next round. Vamos Rafa <3
