Rafa on playing Botic:

“He has been playing at a high level all year, he has a very clean ball hit and very powerful shots. I think this match will give me the perspective to know what level I am at because he is already a major rival.”

The Dutchman qualified for Roland Garros and reached the second round last year as the World No. 154. Now seeded for the first time at a Grand Slam, his Friday meeting with Rafa will be his first match against a member of the Big Four.



  1. Come on Rafa
    Finish him off
    You are looking so great so far. Hoping to take our revenge in QF

  2. It’s very unusual not to see Rafael Maymo at a tournament. He’s always been in Rafa’s box. Hoping he is well.

  3. Can’t find anything about why Rafa cancelled practice sessions yesterday but he’s on court now against his first seeded player. Hope all is okay – vamos champ and good luck

  4. There were reports on Twitter that Rafa cancelled his practices today. Has anyone heard more? His doctor is with him.

  5. I look forward to this match as Rafa gets an opportunity to step up his game against an up and comer who has nothing to lose . I look forward to a straight set Rafa victory as a tuneup for acRafa victory against Nole !
