So, it is that Rafa is having a rough patch on the court. But, we Rafa fans are fans through it all. Win or lose on the court, Rafa's heart is what makes him a winner in our hearts. And we just hang in there and support him every time he steps onto a court.

We love the Rafa smile and hope he is able to flash us one at the end of winning match.

Rafa's Blog: It hurts to lose ... I am sorry to all my fans in London


Hi everyone,

I suppose that the question today to me that isn't shown here is why did I lose? Well, it is simple. I didn't play the way I had to play, the way I know how to play and that it is taking me to have it back.

I felt without that confidence in the right moments, I felt a bit lack on that concentration in those points and that was it.

I came back to the locker room and there was Toni and the rest of the team waiting for me. Those are sad moments, believe me. We are down, not much talking in the locker room, serious faces... Then Toni starts analyzing points and the game and well... it is not the end of the World!. He is right. But it hurts to lose!

And I am also sad for all those fans who want me to win...

One more thing!

Forgot to say that at least I got a prize today!!!. Raul Zurutuza, the Tournament Director of the Acapulco event gave me the trophy I'd lost back in 2005 when going to the airport!. Here's the picture!.


Thanks to that lovely tournament for this. I got this trophy twice having only won it once! smile.gif
