I was pleased to see how well Rafa played against Lleyton...I really thought he was going to win. He showed he can play with the best. I am excited to see him play again.

Do you think he has a good shot to make it far at Roland Garros? The Spainish players ( Moya, Nadal, Rebredo, Ferrero) are tough on clay.

What I admire most about him though, is how strong he is mentally :worship: Marat could learn some things from him :lol:

tell me about it...I was at the match and he played just incredibly...such a shame he couldn't win the first set cos then he could have beaten Lleyton in straight sets! next time!

he will definitely go far at the Slams in future, especially RG

i saw his match against Hewitt on TV. i was impressed, but he needs to work on his backhand and serve.

I think he could get really far, but I don't want to be too optimistic. I know that's maybe to soon for that 'cause it's almost 5 months :sad: and we don't know anything yet but what do you think. How far can he go?? You think it'll be more than 4th round??
:bigclap: Rafa is back in 50. Good job :yeah:
Vamos Rafa :bounce: You can get higher!!!

Mmm... I never like to make predictions like that. I mean, look what happened to Carlos at the AO :eek: I think Rafa has the potential to go far at RG... but it depends on so many things!

Yeah Eruwen I guess you're right we must wait and see. I guess you never know waht will happen, it's just sport. Everyone can have bad day or something. It can be always suprise.

I think he has a great shot to make it far. But as he himself said, let's hope everything goes well until then so he can be in Roland Garros. ("My plans for Roland Garros is to be in Roland Garros." - Rafa)
