  2. Was sooo happy to watch you play so well in Rome!! Your ball placement was amazing against Tsitsipas and the 6-0 first set against Joker was a dream come true for me to watch.
    I will be coming to Paris from California to watch The French Open and have tickets for June 5th. Can’t wait. Never been the French Open. Vamos Rafa!

  6. Commentators were talking about Novak probably being tired etc. But one of them said that Novak has won despite that in the past. Also referred to the AO a number of times talking of how superbly he played against Rafa etc. Well yes Novak played very well but in the other hand Rafa played differently and miserably giving Novak a lot of opportunity to play that way. No one thinks like that – these people always make excuses for Novak and Roger.
    Here I don’t think Novak played badly at all Rafa was just better!!!!

    VAMOS Rafa!!!!!!!!!!!

    Keep working on mental fitness and belief especially where Novak is concerned. He didn’t hand over the match to you even though the commentator kept saying N’s Level gone down (rubbish) Rafa just didn’t let him. Rafa anyway gave away the 2nd set. He must be careful not to do that. The 1st and 3rd sets were πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ.
    Keep it up Rafa, tennis champion on all surfaces!!!!

  8. So sad I missed the game. Very happy you won , We are not Jerkavic fans at all. He has a big inflated ego. I love your tennis abilities and you truly are a humble man. Love to you Raffa. Congratulations to you on the upcoming nuptials. Good luck for the future games ahead . When you play late I stay up all night to watch.
