You're right, the answer to the Rios question is simply weird. In fact, I'm still trying to figure out what he was on about and whether something got lost in translation. When I first read the transcript I thought a question was missing.
Rafa also seems to have forgotten his "one match at a time" mantra.
Looks like he got a little carried away, especially with Blake still in the draw (I've noticed many people have high hopes for Blake all of a sudden
BTW, is Rafa's forum closed?
