Tomorrow, Rafa travels to Montreal. He practiced today in Manacor – see the Storify for reports from a fan who was there.

In schedule news, Rafa will play doubles in Montreal with Fernando Verdasco (source). It was announced that Rafa will be seeded #8 in singles for Montreal. Since then, Ferrer has withdrawn due to an elbow injury, so Rafa will move up to #7.

Tickets are still available for the exhibition Rafa is doing at John McEnroe’s tennis academy the week before the US Open. You can buy them here.

Rafa has been added to the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day line up. Taking place the Saturday before the US Open, Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day benefits the USTA Foundation which helps fund the National Junior Tennis & Learning Network (NJTL), a nationwide group of more than 500 nonprofit youth-development organizations that provide free or low-cost tennis, education and life-skills programming to more than 225,000 children each year. You can buy tickets here.

Lastly, Rafa is scheduled to play in the IPTL this winter. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased here.
