Default Was Rafa getting on court coaching during the final?

Simple question really, there were 3 times the camera panned onto Uncle Toni and all three times he was uttering what appeared to be advise and not the allowed "come ons" or "vamos rafa" etc.

My opinion is that it's clear cut coaching based on the length of his dialogue. What do you guys think?

I saw Toni screaming one time. Luthi was all the Nadal-Federer match screaming too.

He was talking to the people next to him. Rafa is too far to read his lips or hear anything.

However Federer was getting some coaching. The coach was telling the instructions to Fed's wife and she was the one making the signs to Federer. At one point during the match she made a sign that he should hit the ball with more elegance and beauty, but unfortunately that strategy didn't work.

You have a very poor sense of humour.

It's obvious coaching. He does it all the time as soon as Rafatito seems clueless out there.

If Toni said anything, it was for Rafa to tank the match that way when he meets Djoko at the AO, Djoko will be overconfident and won't know what hit him. Rafa will bring his real A-game at the slams.

Rafa's A game isn't efficient against a 60+% Djokovic. Nadal simply can't moonball and wait for the error like he always does. And since he has no plan B to fall on...

At the slams watch Rafa eat Nole alive and bring out the chokovik
