Rafa is bidding to win Roland Garros and Wimbledon in the same year for the 3rd time and equal Bjorn Borg’s all-time record of 3 back-to-back titles in Paris and London. Borg achieved the feat in 3 consecutive years (1978-80), while our champ won Roland Garros and Wimbledon back-to-back in 2008 and 2010.

  1. Rafa Nadal is one man that can win the tittle if he is injury free, i would love for him to win it becase he plays so hard and works so hard giving his all to the Sport he loves . Vamoose Rafa

    • You have to give the advantage to Novak as Fed and Rafa may have
      to play each other.

      Today’s match is huge as it one Rafa could 𝙻𝙾𝚂𝙴.

      However a big win today could be just what Rafa needs to propel him to his third Wimbledon!

      • Any way you cut it, the stench is still there [Rafa having to beat both Fed+Djokovic].

        But before we even get to a Fedal let’s get rid of Kyrgios. He was spotted with friends yesterday drinking in some pub. I hope he has a hell of a hangover. BUT, that could have been just a show guessing someone would write about it. He’s a schnook.

        In any event, I hope Rafa rips him to smitherines.

        RAFA FOR THE WIN

        SIEMPRE CONTIGO

        RAFA ROCKS

  2. I would like to see Rafa beat Krygios and get a measure of revenge . That match , if played should propel him to further victories . Federer vs Nadal would be a classic and should Rafa prevail , watch out Nole . Tough draw but definetly a fun won ! Vamos Rafa and please play aggressively from the baseline !

  3. By the grace of the Almighty God , Rafa can overcome all his opponents!!! We pray for his victory, beforehand!!!If God is with him no one can be against him! Keep up Our Champion!!!!Be a winner, and long live!!!

  4. Do you know what “literally” means? And does “it” refer to the seeding or the draw? What I did say was that this rule was agreed in the 90s, so I am aware it was in place long before Rafa and Federer’s time, and never suggested that it was done to decrease Rafa’s chances, I’m not a conspiracy theorist, as you seem to think. He can beat anyone. I said I wished he occasionally got some of the breaks

    Does anyone remember this juggling of the rankings happening before? I have a clear memory of them bumping Rafa down once before, but I can’t remember what year it was.

  5. Of course, they are afraid that Rafa will obliterate him…..

  6. It is a tough draw. I don’t think its fair that Rogers’s draw is easy. But our champ Rafa can do it.. injury free. Vamos Rafa

  7. 2nd round could be krygios, 3rd round shapo or Tsonga, 4th round cilic , quarter thiem , semis Federer and final Djokovic ! are u kidding me or what ☹️. This is probably the toughest draw I’ve seen in a long time. All of them are good on grass except maybe Thiem but he is also a tough opponent any day. The path to Victory is difficult but if their is one guy who can make it possible is RAFAEL NADAL
