        Yeah, I’m not at all a violent person, but watching the frustration from Rafa on court last night, I was almost hoping for Marat Safin to turn up and let Rafa have a fist fight with him. Just to let off some steam.

        Actually, that would be very MacEnroe-esque…YCNBS was his saying.

    By the look in his eyes you can tell that he’s got back the fire in his tummy 100%. *flove* his eyes!
    ( but thats no “new”, hehe )

    And the tape on that yummy tummy… Well, CC, you almost are going to have to talk a few words with Maymo!

    CC & An you are wicked but rightfully so!

    Loving pics 2 and 6, his looking more and more handsome and huggable!
    I love how intense he looks in these pics, those sharp brown eyes just burn through you, there were plenty of snarls and gritting his teeth last night on court, love watching this side of Rafa! I mean business side!

    He looked so happy out there last night!
    “Keep it going Rafa!” xxx
