I’ll be watching n praying for you. God bless you n Team Spain. Vamos Rafa n Team Spain! If I win the lottery, I will be inMelbourne to see you play!? Your Aussie Abuela Nan Shirley. 🐂🏆🏆🏆👑👑👑🍷🎊🎊🎊

  2. VAMOS SWEETHEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) FOLLOW YOUR GUT AND DO WHAT YOU DO BEST AND THAT IS PUTTING ALL THE BACKGROUND BS ASIDE…..AND ENJOY PLAYING YOUR NEXT PRECIOUS POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: ) AS WE SEE, N IS SOME PLAYER WHO USED TO BE TOLD OVER AND OVER AGAIN BY HIS COACHES THAT NO ONE CAN BEAT HI…… AND SO HE EVENTUALLY KEPT TELLING HIMSELF THAT NO ONE CAN BEAT HIM WHEN IN FACT HE KNOWS VERY WELL IT IS NOT THE CASE . OF COURSE FOR SURE ANY ANY TOP PLAYER CAN BEAT HIM AS WE HAVE SEEN OVER AND OVER AGAIN. BUT HE CHOSE TO KEEP TELLING HIMSELF EVEN WHEN HE KNOWS IT IS NOT TRUE. IT LOOKED LIKE IT HELPED HIM TO WALK ONTO THE COURT WITH THESE EMPTY WORDS , TRUE OR NOT TRUE, SUCH WORDS HELPED HIM CREATE THIS BS IMPRESSION ABOUT HIS ABILITY. THIS STATE OF MIND DID NOT HELP HIM ALL THE TIME, BUT HELPED HIM SOME. WE KNOW FOR A FACT THAT OF COURSE HE IS BEATABLE. OF COURSE OTHER PLAYERS TOOK HIM TO THE CLEANERS. OF COURSE HIS PUFFED UP ATTITUDE CAN ONLY TAKE HIM SO FAR. WE ALSO KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THAT HIS ENDURANCE IS LACKING BEHIND MANY TOP PLAYERS. WE ALSO KNOW THAT HE HAS LIMITED BREATHING ABILITY AND OFTEN HE RUNS OUT OF BREATH RIGHT THERE ON COURT, WHERE HE HAS TO LEAN FORWARD AND TAKE BREAKS FOR BREATHING, AND THIS OFTEN HAPPENS BY THE END OF THE 1ST SET. WE ALSO KNOW HE HAS LIMITED TENNIS INSTINCTS….HE IS NOT SPONTENUOUSELY CREATIVE WHEN CONFRONTED BY OTHER STRONG AND CREATIVE PLAYERS. SO IN FACT, HE WALKS ONTO THE COURT LIKE A BLOWN UP BALLOON FILLED WITH AIR AND WITH THESE WORDS IN MIND….NO ONE CAN BEAT ME….WHEN IN REALITY, WE SEE OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT OF COURSE FOR SURE THERE ARE MANY UP COMING PLAYERS WHO ARE STRONGER, BETTER, MORE FIT AND MORE TALENTED THEN HIM AND OF COURSE THEY BEAT HIM. SO SWEETHEART I THINK IT IS EASY TO SEE THAT N IS NOT AS STRONG AS HE TRY TO MAKE EVERYONE BELIEVE. IT IS SUCH A FALSE ATTITUDE AND THAT IS WHY CROWDS ARE NOT GOING FOR HIM BECAUSE HE HAS THIS AIRED BLOWN ATTITUDE NOT BASED ON REALITY AND NOT GIVING OTHER PLAYERS THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE. THAT IS WHY HIS POPULARITY OVER THE YEARS WAS ALWAYS LACKING TO SOME EXTENT. SO IF IT HELPS N ITO BE FILLED WITH EMPTY AIR WIN MATCHES, T CAN CERTAINLY HELP ANY STRONGER AND BETTER PLAYERS THAN HIM. I THINK IT HELPED HIM AND I AM HAPPY FOR HIM BUT HIS AIRED ATTITUDE AND MECHANICAL PLAY IS NO FUN TO WATCH. VAMOS SWEETHEART AND GO RAFA GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : )
    WE ALL LOVE YOU SWEETHEART BECAUSE YOU ARE THE REAL DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU ARE THE OE WITH THE GENUINE SKILLED GOODS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU ARE THE ONE WHO HAS WHAT IT TAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU KEEP UP EVOLVING….DEVELOPING…..PROGRESSING AND ENRICHING YOUR BRIGHT BRILLIANT TENNIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOUR PRACTICES ARE UNLIMITED IN THEIR STRENGTH AND SCOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU ARE THE ONE WITH IMPACABLE SPORTSMANSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) WHAT IS OBVIOUS IS THAT OVER THE YEARS, YOU HAVE EARNED THE ULTIMATE STRONGEST POWER OF FIGHTING….POWER OF PASSION…..POWER OF DRIVE AND POWER OF UP KEEPING BEING RELEVANT AND SUCCESSFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU AE A BRILLIANT LIGHT IN THE TENNIS WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) THE ULTIMATE GOAT OF ALL GOATS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) NOT A PLAYER WAITING FOR THE ATP TO ASSIST YOU WITH FAVORABLE BENEFITS……..OR FAVORED OVER OTHER PLAYERS, BUT YOU RAFA NADAL IS A TRUE LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) A PRECIOUS GENUINE CHAMPION WHO ALWAYS HAS TO FIGHT FOR YOUR TITLES WITH YOUR REAL SWEAT…..REAL INSTINCTS…….REAL GOD GIVEN NATURAL TALENT, REAL EXCEPTIONAL HARD WORK AND PASSIONATE EFFORTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) TRADITIONALLY, SPORT IS ALL ABOUT TALENT AND THAT IS WHY YOU ARE NUMBER ONE BEST TENNIS PLAYER IN THE WORLD, AND HAVE BEEN CROWNED NUMBER ONE FOR THREE DECADES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU HAVE MILLIONS OF GLOBAL AVID TENNIS FANS ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO RESPECT YOU, APPRECIATE YOU AND WAKE UP AT 2 AM…..3 AM…..4 AM TO WATCH YOUR MAGIC LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) WE LOVE YOU SWEETHEART AND GO RAFA GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) KEEP GOING SWEETHEART DOING EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU ARE THE ULTIMATE TENNIS GENIUS PROFESSOR WE ALL LOOK UP TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) VAMOS SWEETHEART AND ENJOY EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) GO OUT THERE AND HAVE FUN…..THAT’S ALL……NO PRESSURE……NO NOTHING…….NO BIG DEAL…… BUT SIMPLY ENJOY PLAYING YOUR BEAUTIFUL TENNIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) WE LOVE YOU DEAR RAFA NADAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXXOXOX

  3. Rafa must serve well and limit his unforced errors and play alot better than his last 2 matches against Goffin and DeMinaur . Beating Nole in this match would be amazing for Rafa and Team Spain . Vamos and please get this win !

  4. Rafa you have played Nole so many times. You know HIS weaknesses and you need to put them into play. Don’t play the way he knows how you play . put forth your new tactics and diverse play . I know your Coach Carlos Moya has been working with you on that. What ever you do in your game make it a surprise that Nole won’t see coming and be AGGRESSIVE and take CONTROL of the match right off. Don’t give an inch to him. Remember you are the Matador he is the Bull and in that instance who always win it’s not the Bull it’s the Matador . Believe in your self and rise to the occasion for not only you but for your Country. You are the Best and don’t forget it. Play dominant,mean and clean and let him know you are going to win no an if’s about it. Your #1 for a reason. Dominate the Match and walk away a Hero for your Country and a Winner for us all.
    your fan forever

    p.s I’m going to get up at 4am eastern time to watch . you can do it I know you can

  5. Yes Lorna, it’s unfortunate that Rafa doesn’t seem to believe that he can beat Novak. I know he can but there seems to be a block especially when I think of the way he played against him in the AO finals last year. All the matches Rafa played before the finals we could see that he was aggressive and had made some changes in his game. But I’m the finals he went into the defensive and was playing more in his ‘old’ style which many players especially Novak knew how to attack and deal with.

    Anyway …….. I want Rafa to believe in himself no matter who the player is and with a win against Novak (most of all) and even Federer (of late) it would be fabulous!!!

    I can only hope and pray …..

  6. I thought Rafa looked tired and seemed rather downbeat in his presser today, but I know he’ll try his best tomorrow and I’ll be cheering for him and the rest of Team Spain.

    I hope Roberto wins. He gave up his chace to defend his points from winning Doha and has now lost his place in the top 10 to Goffin, who got there by beating Rafa. Roberto will get it back if he beats Lajovic and I think he deserves that, he’s been a rock for his team this week.

    • Yes, 140. He has 250 in total from this tournament and 10235 in total. To reach 10000 is great, I’m very happy about that. Although Djokovic has narrowed the gap and may well narrow it further tomorrow, Rafa will keep the #1 at least until AO. Djokovic has withdrawn from the tournament he was scheduled to play next week.

      • va4favre, I think updated ranking releases on Monday, Jan. 13 should include points from this tournament. Rafa can add 250 more for a total of 500 if he beats Djoker tomorrow🤞 Vamos Rafa💪❤️

  7. Rafa fab 1, you are spot on with your comments and I couldn’t agree more. Rafa has had to endure a six year drought in regard to wins against Novak on hard courts.

    When speaking of his match tomorrow with Novak, Rafa said ” I need something else and I am looking for it”. This is a cause for concern as it tells me that Rafa isn’t confident about the match up and still searching for top form. He can’t afford to come out sluggish against Novak as he did today, because his arch rival is known taking full advantage of being on the front foot.

    Good luck Rafa . I hope that the ball hits the sweet spot of your racquet consistently and you find the formula that you’re searching for.

  8. Congrats team Spain. I was very nervous during Rafa’s match and I can’t than God and all the deities for helping him. BUT he needs even more protection and greater savvy against Novak who is playing very well, is rested enough and lives thaw courts and conditions. He’s also someone who has bothered Rafa the most in recent years. Winning against Novak is imperative not only to win the atp cup but for Rafa’s confidence. It’ll be sooo good for Rafa.

    Rafa and RBA don’t be too good and kind. Be aggressive like never before.

    Good luck for tomorrow. May your tennis and the love and positive wishes from tennis fans (not just your fans) carry you and team Spain over the finish line and to the trophy.

    VAMOS VAMOS VAMOS

    🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀👍👍👍👍👍💪💪💪💪💪🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞😘😘😘😘😘

  9. Rafa good luck tomorrow you can do it love you vamossssssssss champ 👍🇺🇸🎾❤️😘👍🇺🇸🎾❤️😘👍🇺🇸🎾❤️😘🎾

  10. As Captain Francisco commented after the match between Rafa and Alex, problem-solving by Rafa himself by experimenting with different shots/court positions saved the evening for Team Spain.

    Needless to say Roberto’s game was impeccable. Shots were crisp. At no time during his match with Kyrgios did I feel nervous or apprehensive on behalf of the Team.

    But with Rafa I was calling on all the tennis deities and was grateful for the momentum shift at the end of the second set and voila, in the third set Rafa’s usual brilliance was back! I attributed this too to the fact that Rafa stayed calm even when the going was tough.

    Thank God! And thank you to all the members of Team Spain as well as all the fans worldwide. Sending positive vibrations across the miles helped Team Spain’s cause.

    • I’m sure Rafa would have preferred meeting Medveedev instead of Djokovic. Rafa’s body language has been negative since Serbia won against Russia.
      If it were an entirely different scenario like the grand slams or ATP 500 or 1000, Rafa would have played to lose today against De Minaur. But he was helpless today as he very well knows that the outcome of the doubles match (had he played to lose against De Minaur) was out of his control. Poor Rafa!
      As it is, Novak has got him this time and there’s no hiding. But I still believe Spain would win AAIF AND ONLY IF Batista-Agut beats Susan Lajovic.

      But as for Nole vs Rafa, I predict a 6-0, 6-4 result. But Team Spain would triumph eventually, as the ensuing Doubles Rubber would save Rafa.

      But as always, we go day by day, hour by hour….. cheers.
