We could very well see a reformed Rafa, but this guy needs to take a good rest for the next 3 weeks.
He is playing exho in Abu Dhabi with Roger, Nole, Tsonga, Pics and Gael from 29th to 31st December. Abu Dhabi exho
It pretty much depends if Rafa can get himself out of the mental block he currently has against Nole, and whether a new year will change things. Will be interesting, as a fan, I'm definitely hoping 2012 will be better than 2011.
Also, he needs to work on his serve and the backhand.
