RafaLint: January 6th

Looks like the Australian Open is going to do its usual wonderful job on social media. They are putting out a lot of fun little videos. Like:

Rafa picking up his credential:

And Rafa having a hit with Verdasco:

(Although, maybe they need to concentrate more on the players and less on the chairs.)

Davis Cup?
Marca is reporting that Rafa will not play Davis Cup in the first round tie against Germany. While I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t (due to the tight schedule and surface changes), it’s not like Marca has a good track record in making statements about Rafa’s schedule. So, let’s just wait and see what’s going to happen.

    Is it a mangle thing (or my lack of reading comprehension), or does Roig actually say, that Rafa is obsessed with catching up with Federer’s number of majors? Of course he would want to win as many as possible, but actually obsessing about it sounds very unlike Rafa.

    Rafa never forgets his balls… he checks they are there regularly!! Silly Nike.

    rafa might NOT be obsessing with overtaking roger but I am :)

    I’m pretty sure at the back of his mind Rafa thinks about that, and if that will keep him motivated for many years to come then may it would be good for him to think about it. But the only difference is, he does not talk about it at all.
