Rafa's last tournament was Wimbledon. If you missed any of the action then take a look at the Info, Pics and Videos on our message board.
Rafa is practising at home in Mallorca.
Rafa has only ever done well at Wimbledon when he has reached the quarter finals of Queens a couple of weeks before. So when he pulled out of this year's tournament, I wasn't hopeful.
It looked like I was wrong to be worried, though, when he started week one with pretty emphatic victories over John Millman 6-1, 6-3, 6-2,
Donald Young 6-4, 6-2, 7-5
and Karen Khachanov (6-1, 6-4, 7-6(3)).
It was even more distressing, therefore, when Gilles Muller beat him, 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 13-15. Don't get me started on how sick I am of hearing the phrase "he played the match of his life" when applied to opponents who beat Rafa. I wouldn't mind quite so much if any of them could ever do this against other top players. Or even, heaven forfend, if they could actually go on and win their next match. Sigh.
So that's the grass courts done with for another year. We now have the joy of about 8 months of hard court tournaments to look forward to. I will therefore end this with a few choice pics of Rafa in various amounts of white.
