Rafa has fallen before the quarterfinals at Melbourne Park just once since 2007 and holds a 2-0 record against the Frenchman.

Mannarino is playing great. I think the match against Hubert [was] a surprise. He was playing at I think a very high level. To win against a player like Hubert in straight sets with that result is because you did a lot of things well. I saw a little bit of that match, he was playing well.

The 2009 champion is bidding to reach the quarterfinals here for the 14th time and equal John Newcombe in 2nd place on the all-time list for mostAustralian Open men’s singles quarterfinal appearances.

  1. 13 aces from Rafa. Wow!

    Champ is in cruise mode now it seems.

    Second set is secured!

    Meanwhile it seems Zverev’s team might be looking into flights out of Australia:)

      • You are right.👍 Looking good…Denis is two sets and a break up in the third set right now. No guarantee, but it’s better Rafa plays Denis next over Alex.😉

        Congratulations to Rafa.👏 Hope A. Mannarino doesn’t have anything serious.🙏

  2. Let’s go Rafa, good luck for next match!!. One more step, slowly slowly. Another round before to face the most dangerous players (first 10 seeds), but of course always with the respect you have for everyone.
    Vamos Rafa!! 💪🏻💪🏻✨💥🌊🌈🔥💚
    Keep clearing ‘your Path’ 😉. The Glory is waiting for you…

  3. Keep the faith and shoot for the best!! Your course is set, the map is correct, the goal in sight!Sail on……vamos!

    • As he reached Quarter Finals last year, its 360. If he defeat Mannarino, he will protect those points. Hopefully, our Rafa will keep going till the end.

    • Hi Rafa 😍 my mom and I have been watching you play solid 😝you are the most amazing athlete and I think you have the Edwards genes.moms 90 and played high school basketball and my dad also and my brother was wanted by Wofford college and dad NC state 😟 sorry to say my dad took other paths. My brother has is own company here in Spartanburg S.C. Brother is going to kill me😮 his legs and total is so much like the Fantastic Rafa Nadal !!! Had to tell my story and we will always watch you bring the fire !!! Gosh my mom love to hear a word from you. She has your poster on your door !!! We Love you 😍 ❤️😍❤️

  5. Very happy with Rafa’s results but I think people are getting ahead of themselves. Like Rafa I just take a ball, a game, a set and a match at a time. Not being negative. Of course I’m hoping for the very best but the road is not that easy. There are young top class players in the way.
    I pray and hope that that everything goes his way. That he plays fantastic and also has a good share of luck and remains physically intact.

    All the best Champ!!!



  6. Always with Rafa and wishing him another win.

    Adding Marc Lopez to his team may be just what he needed at this time in his career. I read the excellent article by the ATP Tour and it sheds a lot of light on their relationship. According to the article it was Carlos Moyá who was instrumental in getting Marc on board.


    • I also read the same article last night. Congratulations to Marc and his wife, parents of a baby girl.👧

      Good luck to Rafa🍀 Vamos💪❤️
