Congratulations 🎉🎈🎊🍾 Rafa
This a master class on Tennis. How on Earth he returned that serve while actually going the wrong way ! Amazing Rafa
Rafa on a mission tonight
HAHA… no crystal ball Navdeep, just hoping for the best from our champ. And he delivers!
Mmm what’s this? A break to start the 3rd set? Rafa please go on to win this AO… it’ll be a dream start to the year!
Yay keep it up rafa
Stay patient Rafa… you’ll get break chances soon enough!
Aaaaand…. BOOM! Wrap it up with no drama now Rafa!
Dude u have a crystal ball or what lol. Come on Rafa
Keep fighting. All the best. No one is mentally stronger than Rafael Nadal when he is in the zone.💪👊👍👏🍀❤️
Well done Rafa! Be aggressive but patient. Keep up the intensity and don’t let him in.
Awesome first set but I don’t know why something is not looking right. No vamos no jumping or anything from Rafa.Even xisca looked tense a bit or maybe I am just over thinking. Keep got Rafa
HAHA dont go jinxing anything there Navdeep:)
I’m sure these guys know that Stefanos put out Federer, so they’re still not home and dry. I think Fed won the first set in that contest too. Rafa looking crisp though! Everything looks right from where I sit:)
How’s your leg?
It’s completely healed now . Thanks for asking btw I know I am thinking a bit too much but Rafa’s history here makes me nervous Everytime. I just want to see him holding Norman Brooks aloft
Looks like clock is stressing Rafa
WOW! Wrap this up in under 2 hours Rafa, to save energy for Novak.
Yay first set in the pocket💪💪💪
You’re doing well champ!! Keep up that intensity and smother him!
Yup… so far so good!
Those 2 consecutive double faults though. Nerves for Tsitsipas? Well, when you’re playing Nadal…
So far so good
Go for it. We are all with you. Vamos Rafa <3
The roof was closed for the women’s semis, but just heard that they’re opening it for the men’s. Yes! Thank goodness!
Rafa – wish you every bit of luck.
Be aggressive and confident. Don’t stand too far back for his serve if possible. He’s going to take your shots early especially because of the spin. Mouratoglu has definitely given him all kinds of tips how to play you.
Hope You and Carlos have a good strategy against him. Also hope the roof is open but even if not please don’t let it bother you. Be as and more mentally strong and determined as he is.
Really, really praying that you beat him!!!!!
VAMOS VAMOS VAMOS
You have beaten Tsitsipas already three times even before you attained yoour current level. Please set your mind on defeating him in 3 sets by not even leaving him a set.
Wamos Rafa, you are the best.
Hoping they open the roof
Head down. just play like you have done. he is very quick on court so you will have to be as well. Good luck. Will be the wind beneath your wings. Vamos Rafa.
Best of luck Rafa! Tons of positive energy on your way. Vamos💪💪💪
