^ Rafa Open
^^ Rafa Masters
Seriously, I got goosebumps when they showed that..I mean, I know he's won 8 times before but to actually see the list! Huge, huuuuge accomplishment by Rafa..so so proud to be a fan of his! Hopefully this is the 1st of many titles to come this season!
There was actually a debate as to which streak of seven was more impressive, Novak's seven straight wins against Rafa or Rafa's seven straight titles in this tournament. I do believe Novak's is more impressive only for the reason they were wins against Rafa!
Posts in this thread are becoming more and more sparse lately. It's a good thing there is another thread about Rafa's activities.

Rafa is already in Barcelona!!
I do see the benefit in skipping Barcelona. The last time Rafa did in 2010, not only did he go on to win Roland Garros, he also proceeded to win Wimbledon and the US Open.

Nadal typically looks to hit his lefty slice serve to a right-handerís backhand to start the point, but this has proven to be a tough proposition against Djokovic, who has one of the best backhand returns in the history of the game.
Nadal served much more to Djokovicís forehand in this match and reaped the rewards of serving not where he prefers to serve but where Djokovic is not as deadly returning.
I'm soooo happy to see himm bite championship trophies again. Only the great make 8! Here's to more wins this year. Including another olympic Gold.
Nagsuot na naman ng Rafa shirt si Joey de Leon today
