LOL, Thiem is 0-9 in sets played vs Rafa at Roland Garros.
Rafa has dropped a total of ONE set in the last 2 years.....Its never been more certain :)
I'm not even sure if Rafa will drop a set in 2021!


It is impossible for Federer to keep the record if Federer is done willing slams, that's for certain :)
Rafa gets to 20+ with the French Open alone, and given that he couldn't even train properly at the AO and still won 18 sets in a row......you know Rafa can still win hardcourt slams.
Heck, Rafa is clearly good enough to win Wimbledon too based on last year, and he looks a lot better this year than he did last year.
I wish I was that confident. I certainly bullieve, but im not handing him any titles till he's 2 sets up in the finals.

Rafa Nadal Foundation

April 6, 2019

The Rafa Nadal Foundation (RNF), in cooperation with the Palma city government, organized the third edition of the soldarity run called "Millor Junts" (in English: "Better Together") in Palma, the capital of Mallorca. The participants run through the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods in Palma. The run started from the Palma Convention Centre (Palau de Congressos de Palma) and finished near the RNF Centre. About 500 people, kids & adults, took part in the event. The money raised by the event will go to the Rafa Nadal Foundation Centre (RNF Centre) located in Palma.
The RNF Centre helps socially vulnerable children and youngsters in the Nou Llevant and La Soledat neighbourhoods in Palma, both of which are particularly disadvantaged areas with a lack of resources. Since 2014, the RNF Centre has run an educational programme that complements formal school education and provides support in three areas which are vital for children's personal and social development: social education, education through sport and psychotherapy About 200 kids (between 6 and 17) from socially disadvantaged backgrounds are currently participating in the RNF Centre project.

Rafa's mother (the President of the RNF) and his girlfriend Maria Francisca (aka Xisca, the Director of Strategy and Institutional Relations of the RNF) were actively involved in organizing the event and attended it (from 0:15 - 0:20 in the video below).

Ben Vanderick, originally from Belgium, captures faces with a great accuracy, as an architect will do to build his model:

Does Monte Carlo change their trophy this year? I still prefer the old design though.
