Hi Rafa, What do you think is more important in one sudden death, have a very strong or have nerves of steel? Thank you and good luck. Niamh in Ireland ….
I think the two at a time is ideal, but if you do not have nerves of steel you will also improve the serve.
So, I’m guessing this means: which is more important in a tie-break: nerves of steel or a very good serve. And the answer is…both.
Hi Rafa I am Camila from Argentina, a big fan of yours and I congratulate you for the great start of season you’re having. My question is: How do you stay focused and calm throughout the match, especially when things do not go as you expect? It is admirable that you put the claw on each encounter.
Is important because tennis is a very mental sport. For me the important thing is to think about each point. It helps to be concentrated and then think of the time. What has been done, right or wrong, is part of the past and we must play the next point.
So much easier said than done. Hell, I spend half of most days regretting what I had for breakfast.
Because the media has gone from being a great tennis player to an idol of the masses, how you’ve lived through that change? Must find it difficult to relate with people you do not know or know anything about you. Did you spent, what you feel in such cases?
It’s what plays when you’re at a high level in a sport like tennis, which has a lot of arrival. The issue is that many people about and treat you in a way that almost makes you feel different. The important thing is not to lose and know where north is at every moment.
I can’t imagine being impervious to the constant admiration. I hope Rafa can be one of the few exceptions to the rule. He’s done pretty good so far.
Hi Rafa, thanks for the example you give to athletes Spaniards. What Would percentage in tennis: 1-mentality and attitude. 2-Tech. 3-Strategy “, a greeting, and the fate… next game is always the most important …
I think everything is important. Minded attitude and you can enjoy more of the art and can also carry out a strategy and studied. But that is not only because it also depends on the reverse.
Thanks to the Spanish article, I finally understand why he pronounces attitude like he does! The Spanish is “actitud”.
Hi Rafa! The first thing to say that I love your new dress every day and play better (partidazo go with Djokovic in Madrid, I was at the Magic Box and it was great). Here is my question: When you face as a tournament of Roland Garros, are you going to believe a party or party
is inevitable to think about your possible clashes in subsequent rounds (quarters, semis) and think a strategy?
Thinking I’m going to party party. Another thing would be a mistake, really.
Okay, here’s my take on this one: Rafa’s partied in a new dress and anything else would be a mistake. What, that’s not right?
Hola Rafa. We are all behind animándote. A question about the balls. Why not take a player repeats the same ball you just get? When you do a second service repetís or if you have just desecháis the ball to use. ¡¡Gracias y ánimo!.
Thank you very much. Depends on the type of service you want to do.Sometimes we want to find new ball speed, a fast and remove others that are seeking more beads used to make the change and get slower.
Balls seek beads?
Hola Rafa! How is everything? Did you see the final of the Champions?What is your opinion of the final? All my support from Venezuela. Pierina. Pierina.
I think the boat was much higher and showed that it is the best team today. Very good.
Hola Rafa, after seeing your second-round match on Suzanne Lenglen was reflected as follows: it is widely known that the French do not like to see win at Roland Garros in Spanish, and always feel that the French public relies heavily on your opponents. My question is whether the notes by the same organization. Good luck and thanks.
No, I do not think so. When I entered the field I always give a standing ovation important.
