I'm as delighted as the rest of his fans who post throughout the year here will no doubt be, re. No.1! Finally sane again, well to a point at least. I've been calmer watching Rafa play major finals than I was today! I was the male version of Britney'07 this afternoon.
2nd set Rafa 3-1 30-30 - Why no challenge? One of the best shots of the week, & one of tennis' most difficult to pull off. Rafa was robbed big time. Three balls weren't challenged by both players 2-1 Rafa-Stan, all three called incorrectly. Players should go with their gut instincts instead of what their support boxes think.
Rafa did a studio interview & gave post match insight after his match yesterday & today on sky, UK. It's all kinds of awesome watching Rafa, watching Rafa on a screen no more than a metre from it, & a bit surreal. His accent is tremendous.
Great stuff Rafa!
