this is what rafa needs now more than anything else: win ONE tournament!!! it has been too long...when he wins a tournament again, then his confidence will be back, for now, it is all still a work in progress.
but rafa is a champion, and u can never count him out, he has proven that in the past, and as a fan, i have belief in him that he will bounce back, there are two tennis players that u should never ever count out: rafa, and roger federer!!!
wait until after french open and wimbledon- i think rafa will be in a good position to be #2 or hopefully #1 if he can win both those slams.
