  2. I can’t see Rafa’s name on the match schedule for today. Sadly, it looks like he’s withdrawn. Get well soon, Rafa.

  6. I watched a little of Rafa’s practice. He was smiling, but he did not hit very hard. It was nothing like his usual practice, but he has tomorrow too. It was definitely a good sign. The stands were packed with fans. I saw him walking to or from practice and it was like a rock star was there. Wait, Rafa is a rock star!

  8. Was really looking forward to Rafa’s presser. I am even more worried now that he canceled it. Be well Rafa.

    • Hmmn, It ‘d appear that Rafa is set to withdraw…….The field is too loaded for him to take on…Fognini, Thiem, Roger and ofcourse, Djokovic….It is better to fight another day

      But, as always, we’d see……..cheers

      Rocking Rafa

      • Maria, please just zip it 🤐. He is not due to play until mañana so he may have waited until today to make an assessment on his readiness.

        Rafa said his enemy is the “fear of losing”. I hope this enemy has not decided to make an appearance during Rafa’s most prolific time of year.

        Hopefully no news is good news. I am still hopeful so your pronouncements of doom will not dampen my positivity.

        RAFA ROCKS
