    Yes, of course, I said to Rafa myself in Spanish when I saw him in his Academy in Manacor on Friday 9th Nov. I am sorry about atp Paris as I live in Paris but I did not go back yet, I would not have missed him. I spent two months in Majorca and as he did not go to another one after US Open and spent more time there we had more chance to see him during six weeks. He was often training in the inside court to prepare for Paris Bercy and we saw him come out, I was lucky to get my book Rafa signed and my first selfie with him, a lovely photo taken by Carlos Moya. I told Carlos he was a good photgrapher ! Shame for him that the end of the season was a wash out but praying for him in the next year. Saw in Twittter that yesterday he was training outside in the Central Court in the Aca, it means a step in the right direction. Fiona in Paris
