What did he do that was so outrageous after the AO match? Do you remember Rafa's reaction after winning the semi of the Olympics in a very difficult match against Djoko in 2008? Maybe you need to have your memory refreshed. I can guarantee you that it was not subdued and nor should it have been. A major victory calls for an explosive reaction sometimes, it calls for joyful release and nothing wrong with that.
