Oh well he plays Tommy Haas next. And as much as I have loved Tommy for years his body is in way worse shape than Rafa's plus he is much older so Rafa should be all right through the 2nd Rd.

Pretty good start I think. Can't argue with 40+ winners, 14 errors, 9 aces and the BH landing in the court.

Yeah but that won't cut it vs Federina or Nole I'm afraid.

6-4 6-3 6-4, Tommy played really well, got tired at the end. Rafa broken twice - still no bueno. But let's hope he can improve with every match. Vamos!

That is sadly so true And I know it was a straight set win, but I honestly thought Rafa would do better than that against Tommy

Match time 2 hours 29 minutes, Foxy won't be happy.
At least he SAID the knee was fine at the on-court interview after the match, but we have no idea what's really going on with the knee, still the same bandage.

Mae, Tommy got a nice farewell on RLA at least.

WTF, Rafa vs Lukas Lacko first on RLA! But whatever, I won't bother to stay awake, he has to manage without me.
