No time for Rafa to go to EuroDisney this year. A lovely bridge with the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop will have to do.

Another slam final and it’s Rafa and Nole. This is getting to be a habit. Rafa came out on fire, but that didn’t last too long. What followed was best described by sharlatee on twitter as “all kinds of wow and weird”. Each guy would play amazing points alternating with odd errors and nervous looking shots. One guy would step up and start playing well just as the other would turn into an error making machine. It was not pretty.
Lots of frustrated reports on a frustrating partial match, frustrated tennis players, and very frustrating weather – today’s lint.

Interview (in Spanish and French) for the French TV station Stade 2 – hope it’s not blocked for anyone! Rafa looks relaxed and smiling. (It’s dated yesterday.)
Rafa and Djokovic’s Roland Garros final will continue tomorrow. Play for today is officially suspended due to the weather. They will be back tomorrow at 1pm local time. The even worse news is that the weather forecast for tomorrow doesn’t look good. At all.
Current score: 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 1-2 – Rafa down a break in the 4th.
