You will be beat by Roger in Wimbeldon. Roger will win the Wimbeldon 2012 and he will be NO1 again. Remember that when you will play in tour.

I really admire and respect Rafa BUT why is he allowed to take so long between points. If there is a rule, then there is a rule and if he continually breaks it he should be given a warning and then a point deduction, otherwise don't have the rule then.

Norma and Milton Novie

We are a group of Americans who want to tell Rafa that to us HE WAS THE WiNNer Last Night at the Australian Open. He is worthy of admiration for the way he conducts himself on the court and for his excellent tennis performance.
We will always hold him in the higest esteem and wish him a future win at the US Open.

I doubt about Nadal's knees. He should have finished the match against Murray at AO! He had to do it! He ain't my hero any more.

Well, Nadal, devil (church) doesn't like you. But people do. Once in chess there was a devil favoured- Kasparov, here in tennis this Federer. Let them win (Fed,Murray,Sod/Mats,Djoky), but we will prefer pure people like you and Davydenko.

Nadal.... love it....love it when u fight!... keep on fighting !
