Does anyone know when the printable draw will be ready to print?
Hi – it’s already up on the RG site: http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/index.html
A really good draw for Rafa. Keeping that #2 ranking helped to ensure not having to play Nole until the finals, and its good to see Federer is in Nole’s half as well. A seemingly less than 100% Murray is in Rafa’s half, and Murray’s quarter is unquestionably the most difficult.
Man, to see Rafa possibly ascend to not winning RG, and then perhaps going on and maybe winning another major this year, with the confidence he is gaining, and then maybe ascending back to #1 for the third time, i think it would be one of the most inspirational stories in the history of sports, much less tennis. Vamos Rafa!
That last pic…looks like an ad. Sponsors (Rafa’s or otherwise) all lined up, great subdued-action shot, great legs-shot (always important)and tennis ball-flowers background. Lovely.
This is what it’s all about for Rafa…going to the draw with taped fingers (all ready) to leave the event before the men’s draw to practice during his appointed time. More than anything, his commitment inspires me; the matches excite me and the victories are just cherries.
Rafa’s hair is so curly during practice! As if he had out curlers through them ;p Hope he’ll have a very very very good tournament. Getting my nails done in Rafa colors now! Vamos!
