Our champ  is trying to make the fourth round at the Australian Open for the third straight year.

Rafa is bidding to become the first man in the Open Era to win each Grand Slam twice – and just the third in the sport’s history after Rod Laver and Roy Emerson competed the feat in parts during the amateur era.



  1. Rafa congratulation well don champ vamosssss all the way 🎾👍❤️😘🎾👍❤️❤️

  2. With Serena out, Naomi out, Tsitsipas out and Roger having teetered on the brink, what next? Judging by the way Raonic dispatched Tsitsipas in straight sets with his booming serve, i reckon that he has the best chance of eliminating Djokovic before the final.

    Meanwhile Rafa, take care of things against PCB tomorrow in quick time please.
