    Aaawww, so cute.

    Good for Rafa that he ducked.. Safin didn’t play the ball verry hard now but had Rafa kept standing on his feet there he could have killed him..

      That ball didn’t go anywhere near Rafa, Safin went straight down the line. I think Rafa was just being equal parts prudent and silly.

    Of course, the reason I watch Rafa’s matches is for the joy of seeing his tennis. But the “Rafa-duck and Smile” video has the moments I wanted to see again from today’s match because they capture the Rafa we adore as a person. Thanks for finding them!

    The kid in the stands was so cute. Also nice to see Rafa smile on the sidelines – he usually seems to detach himself from what is going on, so he can concentrate I guess. Also the dive to the floor was funny.
