Before heading off to Denmark, Rafa attended a Real Mallorca game where they had a moment of silence to honor his grandfather.
There’s a little bit of Rafa in the current September 14 issue of People Magazine (in the US). You might want to look for a copy.

Watching him lose a two-set lead against Fognini, fight to come back in the fifth, and lose it again in the end, I was reminded of Hewitt’s struggles in recent years—Rafa doesn’t want to go down that road. He used to be a master at winning the points he needed to win. He couldn’t come up with any of them against Fognini. C+
