RAFA PLAYING GREAT IN QUARTER FINAL - CHINA OPEN 09

Apologies to those who come here for Rafa's up-to-date matches. I have been absorbed with four weeks of doing interior painting the last four weeks. So, I missed announcing the time for Rafa's match today. It was the first one, I was able to catch any of. He looked great (not his outfit, but his playing).
