After her success we may have to keep her for GS.

Re: Bangkok 2010 - More a Vacation than a Tournament

Since when does Rafa play any tournament like it's a vacation?

Re: Bangkok 2010 - More a Vacation than a Tournament

No idea what to expect here. Rafa shouldn't be losing to anyone in this draw, but then again he's never the same in MM tournaments, especially on HC. I'll say WIN.

14.

Hmm, what to pick. I don't think "win". I'll go with SF.

He's vacationing before the tournament. I was just trying to put something interesting in the thread title

Tokyo - though some people are speculating that he might pull out so he doesn't have to play 3 weeks in a row. But I don't think he'll pull out.

Unless he gets seriously injured in Bangkok there's no reason to pull out from Tokyo, it's not like he'll fly back to Mallorca and then again to Shanghai, so might as well check out Tokyo and gather some dough but hopefully he'll be smart enough to tank in Tokyo in order to avoid any complications with the knees (which I hugly doubt though).

It doesn't matter anyway because Rafa does everything with the same fervor and energy.



In any case after seeing those photos Evita posted, I think Rafa's motives for traveling to Thailand this time, have to do with a different issue altogether.
