  1. YOU GOT THIS Rafa!
    Kick his butt to the curb, LOL
    VAMOS xox
    Bring that trophy home 🙂

    • No it’s not! We all want him to be Knackered as well. The only problem is Novak plays possum! We have all seen him stagger around like he’s going to fall from exhaustion only to get a reinsertion of energy and polish off the match. I believe it’s a game he plays.He’s a gnarly, strategic, player
      who is chasing the GOAT. Rafa is also a very methodical player but he is not fake! I’m hoping on clay Rafa will have the advantage.It’s been hard for Novak because he doesn’t have the love of the fans like Rafa and Roger have! 💜💜Rafa!

      • Tévedés! Novák szereti a rajongókat! Novák nem szereti a gyülölködő közönséget!
        A rajongók nem egyenlő a gyűlölködőkkel!

  2. I think Rafa has Upper hand tomorrow as always on clay but both are hungry….It will also spice up the debate of Year end no.1 once our Rafa wins tomorrow
