I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU RAFA ~ SMILING AND SLEEVELESS IN MONTREAL doubles


I am only doing this post because I saw Rafa wearing sleeveless in Montreal.
I am sick and should be elsewhere right now in a lateral position.

We can only hope for the singles match to bare the Rafa arms, as well. But, word is that we will be disappointed.

Fans worldwide are gleeful at the sight of Rafa on court

AND

Rafa Sleeveless in Montreal

I can tell Rafa is back because of the number of hits on my blog posts with Rafa as the subject over the last day and a half.
