Smile :~: Rafa in Valencia :~:

i wasn't sure if Rafa would pull out of this tournament or not. (personally i think he should because otherwise he might tire before the more important clay tournies like Monaco and Barcelona), but for the moment it looks like he's going. The singles draw has come out, he's seeded 3 and he plays....JC FERRERO!
He's in the third quarter of the draw...here it is:

(7) Andreev, I. (RUS)
(WC) Vicente, F.

Starace, P. (ITA)
Calatrava, A. (ESP)

Kohlschreiber, P. (GER)
Garcia-Lopez, G. (ESP)

Ferrero, JC. (ESP)
(3) Nadal, R. (ESP)

the number 2 seed is Gonzalez and he could meet him in the semi.

VAMOS RAFA!!

Re: :~: Rafa in Valencia :~:

Yeah I agree he should pull out, what's the point in playing Valencia with a jet lag and after playing loads of matches in Miami? And like Susan from VR.com says, most of his ranking points are from optional events. The only way his ranking will rise dramatically is if he does well in required events...

So Rafa honey, go back to Mallorca, lie on the beach for a few days!

Re: :~: Rafa in Valencia :~:

A bad draw, but the confidence level of the two is totally different. Rafa is on fire as of late, despite his loss today. I don't think Ferrero will know what hit him.

Too bad these are my #2 and #3 faves. (Nadal being #2 )

Re: :~: Rafa in Valencia :~:

his first round match is on Wednesday, which lowers the possibility of Rafael pulling out of the tourney.

...............My heart tells me I should cheer for JC :*(



+ NADAL + GASQUET +
+ ANCIC + KIEFER + MATHIEU + GULBIS + FEDERER + ANDREEV + FERRER +
+ KARLOVIC + LLODRA + BENNETEAU + BERDYCH + ZIMONJIC +

Re: :~: Rafa in Valencia :~:

I'm hoping for JC too - Rafa needs a rest!

Didn't think he would pull out because it is in Spain - anywhere else, I think he would have, but definitely not there.

I also think he should re-think doubles a the bigger tournaments. Maybe one of the reasons he tired out yesterday was because he was playing doubles too...who knows...but it is a thought.

Re: :~: Rafa in Valencia :~:

I thought Rafa will pull out of Valencia after the Miami final...
anyway Good luck!!!

Tommy Haas: "Rafael is a great player. It's amazing how strong, how successful he plays at this age..."
¡Vamos Rafa!

Good luck also to:
