  1. Goffin… Istomin… whoever! Bring them one by one and Rafa should do the needful:)

    I see Mouratoglu was talking crap about Rafa. That guy needs to shut up- anyway Carlos Moya put him in his place.

  2. Play like you did today and a win is assured against Goffin . Looking forward to Rafa vs Alcarez but 1 match at a time .

  3. Viva Rafa!
    Collect more trophies and after declaring champion in Madrid Open hopefully.. you’ll be in good shape for the Roland Garos to collect 22nd Grand Slam after w/c you’ll be declared GOAT.

  4. Super to see Rafa back with a win. Wishing him the best v David Goffin. ☘️☘️

  5. What a fabulous day to watch Rafa on clay! Yay! (I just made that little rhyme up – LOL) So happy to see you play and WIN. So happy I’m watching the replay right now. Go get Goffin tomorrow! Vamos and stay healthy!
