Rafa in IW 2008 - SF and 2 good wins :yeah:
 
It's been a ...great season so far for Rafa :lol: and the best is yet to come! In other words it's time to stop horsing around and get to work to defend all those valuable points :armed:


So what do you all think? In which round will Rafa lose in this tournament (if he is to lose)?
Those to guess correctly will get... well nothing really, just the satisfaction of telling everyone else "I told you so :ras:"


:shrug:

Ah, new tournament, new hope, new thread! :D

As for this quiz - I don't think it's reasonable to think that he will be able to defend all his points here (nor in Miami) - but if he makes it to the quarters I'll be okay with that. Should he get ever further, even better!

A lot depends on the draw, of course. We'll have to wait and see before making any predictions...

Let me bold and wildly optimistic for no reason at all and say he will reach the semi's here.

Second round if he meets some 234 ranked player

Do you mean QFs? Or SFs because the seeded players have a bye in the first round?

I was joking, Genci.

As for the draw, you're right. I didn't know that it's a 128 draw with 32 seeds. :o
