    Cute! But what does Venus actually say?

    *it must be love, love, love…* Indeed.

    I think she says “it gets really gruelling out there”.
    Rafa looks sweet. And the end shot of him doing the celebratory jump with the fireworks in the background is a glimpse of the future when he wins the US Open 09.

      Thanks!

      Oh, I hope you are right about Rafa and US Open 09. And I hope I’m wrong when I say it will take him longer to come back. I so hope you’re right, I so hope I’m wrong…

        Keep faith!! Remember, NO DOOPTS!!!! I have a feeling that Rafa when he comes back will be unstoppable after this break. I don’t remember when but I remember an interview probably last year when he said that you never know what might happen, so he always tries to win everything. I can’t wait for the US Open. I’m watching wimbleton but it seems like all the spark, all the excitement is missing!!!!

          Don’t feel bad naaz, It’s hard when our numero uno man is not on the scene. Wimby is definitely not the same without him. Could you imagine how he must be feeling. I hope he is distracting himself to the enth degree! I’m an aussie and happy that Lleyton is through to the quarters! He has a great cheering squad. Except they are wonderfully roudy which pleases the english crowd(NOT). They may get kicked out tonight. Go Lleyton, Go Juan and especially Karlovic or anyone that can beat Federer!!!!

    Oh wow that image of Rafa rejoicing and the fireworks is just gorgeous! Really, was that when he officially got his number 1?? I miss Rafa sooooo much it’s not funny :(

    He looks beautiful in the little clip where he says he loves the competition. Rafa oh Rafa I hope you’re coping fine and practising hard, and resting well. And I really really hope we see you Rafa at the start of the US hardcourt season. *Besos to Rafa*

    Hey love this site, its nice to see such a plethora of Rafa lovers! I feel the same about Wimbly, not any spark, the only one will be if Fed loses as He can’t take back No. 1 position. Rafa worked 2 hard to attain, and Fed may have won the French but he didn’t do it by beating Rafa, same would hold true now.
    Anytime Rafa has won a Grand Slam it was against the no.1 Fed at the time until AO 09!!! That’s the true
    G.O.A.T!!!! Rafael will be back and we all can breathe a little easier.
