In a close and tense match, Rafa lost to Murray 4-6 7-5 3-6 in the finals of the Capitala World Tennis Championship today. This was a tight and well-played match as neither player appeared to care this was an exhibition with no tour points on the line. I’m not exactly going out on a limb here, but I’ve got a feeling we are going to see a lot of tight and exciting matches between these two this year. Links to match analysis and coverage to follow.
