Rafa:

What happened here (11 titles)… something really unbelievable. I don’t know what can happen in the future or not. I am trying my best to compete well and to give a chance to be where I am today. Now I’m gonna have tough match against Kei. So that’s my goal now. But of course, yeah, 11 here already is something really unbelievable.

Kei on playing Rafa:

It’s going to be a tough match, he’s the greatest ever clay court player.

Rafa is bidding to reach his 31st Grand Slam semifinal and equal Jimmy Connors in 3rd place on the all-time list for most Grand Slam men’s singles semifinals. He is also bidding to reach his 12th Roland Garros semifinal and extend his lead at the top of the all-time list for most Roland Garros men’s singles semifinals.

Our champ has a 90-2 win-loss record at Roland Garros, ahead of Federer (69-16), Djokovic (67-13) and Guillermo Vilas (58-17). This is Rafa’s 15th successive Roland Garros and his 56th Grand Slam overall.

The King of Clay is looking to become the 4th man in the Open Era to win 4 or more Grand Slam titles after turning 30. Federer, Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall are the only men to have won 4 or more Grand Slam titles after turning 30.

GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!

    • Third set Rafa up 4-2 starting to serve and game was suspended for fear of rain arriving! Having given Nishikori a respite the match continues tomorrow. Absolute scandal as there was enough light and rain had not started. We know that rain delays help the loosing player.
      Wamos Rafa you are the best

  4. Kei is coming off a 5 set win against Praire . He must be somewhat tired . Rafa is fresh and ready to go . I like Rafa in straight sets but still a close match . Vamos Rafa !
