Rafa has qualified for the World Tour Final for the 11th consecutive year. In other words, a so-called sucky year for him is one that every player on the tour (minus 7 other guys) would love to have.

Happy to have qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals in London. Special tournament & special city. See you in London!
