Even if I wasn’t posting here, I’ve been following Rafa’s plays in both ATP events in Monte Carlo and Barcelona. I was very satisfied with his performance that, even if he lost two consecutive titles to Novak Djokovic earlier this year, he bounced back by winning the Monte Carlo and Barcelona titles.
Then came the ATP in Madrid, we all know what happened. You are still my champion, Rafa. You may have lost to Novak Djokovic in the ATP Madrid finals last Sunday – yes, in your favourite clay court and in your home turf – but this is one of the greatest shots I’ve seen from you recently. Even the Spanish tennis legend Manolo Santana jumped out of his seat to applaud the crazy shot!
Opening of second set, at 0-30 and second serve for Djoko. A “tweener” lob winner from Rafa! WTH? It became 0-40. With a forehand winner down the line, Rafa breaks at love to start set 2.
I LOLed at this tweet from tennis lust:
tennislust: But of course we don’t expect anything less from whatever comes between Rafa’s legs.
Aye, aye. I so agree!
Now, the ATP tourney is now on in Rome, and Rafa is through to the QFs. I just hope his fever is gone and he’s feeling better to be able to play against Marin Cilic tonight. Winning this means the whole world to Rafa, if he is to keep his number one ranking.
Yo estoy con Rafa. Vamos, Rafa!
