Re: Rafa at the WTF 2011

They are on serve in the early in the 2nd Set. And there are 500 posters in GM

3-3 2nd Set. And now the posters in GM are up to 513! I wonder what the biggest crowd was in GM ever?

Re: Rafa at the WTF 2011

That it wasn't the end of the world (his defeat by Federer) and that he was going to keep fighting! So many of Rafa's fans seem to have written him off, but clearly Rafa hasn't written himself off!

Re: Rafa at the WTF 2011

Whenever he loses a match he says the same things nothing new. We've heard those words a thousand times. So what?
And about Rafa not writing himself off what are you expecting, him - one of the most popular tennis players with multi-millions £ contracts - to come to a PC and say "I am done. I am finished and thinking about retirement". Of course he will insist he is "working hard" and "fighting hard" but I prefer believing my eyes than my ears.

Re: Rafa at the WTF 2011

This is not the best conditions for him to play in plus he has been sick. He could have withdrawn from the Tournament due to illness, but he won't do that. So yes he is still fighting as far as I'm concerned.

Tsonga just broke Rafa in the 3rd Set and leads 2-1.

Re: Rafa at the WTF 2011

Now 3-1 Tsonga. This may be over now. And I can't really say I would mind for him to get out of London and back to Spain and his red clay!
