That will be the last victory of Rafa for quite some time.. With his joke mentality and pathetic game, I hope the disgusting player loses every single match next season. He's disgraceful. He should just retire. He's a joke.
It will be tough to recover. He lost 61 60 to Olaso.
I dont think its a good idea to get wild cards to these challenger events right now. Maybe futures or junior events is all he should aim for until the end of the year. He hasnt played enough tennis over the last year to play in challengers and losing badly will diminish confidence.
Getting back to form. He won a match in a future event in Italy first round against Falgheri. Playing F. Piccari in 2nd round, will probably lose, think it was today so trying to find the result somewhere.
I found the result. Not good news. Miccini lost 63 64, but I suppose not a disgraceful result for him. He is finally starting to match up well against guys much older than him again and its good experience.
