RafaLint: June 26th
Inés sends in a link to this lengthy article on Rafa (mangle). From the mangle, it seems to indicate it’s a new interview, and yet I feel like I’ve heard all the quotes before. The article’s sidebar includes links to an interview with Benito (mangle) and a short blurb about Rafa’s family (mangle).

- As a lot of people pointed out to me, Marca is saying that Rafa won’t play DC in Austin (mangle). Hardly surprising news which, contrary to what a lot of people seem to think, doesn’t make me suicidal. I figured chances of him playing were pretty low when I bought my tickets, and I still get to see DC being played in my home town! The atmosphere and the tennis will still be so much fun.
