    Rafa leaves with 2 plates. Still a great accomplishment I believe. He struggled to get back in the swing of things, played to the best of his ability for first week back. I think he did great, many positives as he has said; learning more about himself and his desire and determination.

    A good man.

    Alright, i think my favourite is #6 (Unf!) – but there are a lot of great photo’s here – i like a lot of the action ones, especially, #6 akimbo, #17 volley, #3 eeehn, #10 down to b’hand & #15 full stretch.

    Of course the whacky-face award goes to #13. Best caption to #20 “they don’t suspect…”, with a special mention to #11 (ass approach).

    I love 23, he almost looks happy ust to have the plate (rare occurance) as with 25 & maybe 27. Rest as per normal! Hmmmm i like 21 as well.

    Well done Rafa. Great first tourney back. Much to improve for next week!

    I was feeling rather gloomy this morning till I came to this page and read the captions on #20 and #21. Now I am smiling again. He did have a good week in Chile, reaching 2 finals has to be seen as a positive thing. Can’t wait for world domination to start hahaha!

    Beautiful. But..but..but…in #6 his treasure trail is clearly missing. We must find it. Why, Rafa, why?

    By the way, pics distracted me and I forgot to say what a good sport he is, always the gentleman. But we all know that, don’t we?!!!
