Default Green in Grand Slams = DOMINATION! Rafa at the Aussie Open 2012

Last time Rafa wore green in a Grand Slam was Roland Garros 2008, hopefully he can replicate that form and bring home his second Australian Open.

VAMOOS!

Put me down for WIN.

Sorry X, there's not going to be MIT this year.
Anyway, cheer for Rafa as much as you can and have fun at the AO!

Don't know about winning, there were positive signs in Doha but the other top 3 are too strong right now I'm afraid. If he could make it to the semis would be nice already. At least I'm more positive than at the end of last year.

I wish Feds is in Rafa's half. It's all what's needed. Murray and Djokovic will kill each other in the other half. 5 sets, 7 hours!

Because Metis said so, she's not around that often any more to organize it.
And no-one else has stepped up to replace her.

I love this, if only this would come true!! At least we know can only meet Djoko if he reaches the final!

I'm totally for Rafa to surprise the world and WIN AO 2012!!! But my mind tells me that is pretty naive and ultra optimistic! I can only pray and hope...but I think the way Rafa is making us feel, it seems like a SF result would already be good!! Reaching the Final would just be the best...but I think I'd rather he lose earlier than to lose another final against Djoko so early in the year!!! If Rafa doesn't win, I can only hope for Fed to deliver!!! No more Djoko dominance please and don't bring Murray into the mix...3 GS contenders are enough!!!
__________________
My ideal ranking:
No.1 Rafa - he is my god beyond GOAT!
No.2 Fed - only cos his success make Rafa's even better
No.3 Delpo - he is my true no.2!!

I am not enjoying Nole's dominance and I am a Brit who doesn't support Murray!
I also love most lefties and Spainish players

Ok, guys, I'll do it :-D

Let's rename it for RIT (close enough to RIP my friends )

Remember: Deadline = Rafa's first match.

My RIT: Semis
