I am in my hotel and drove by the courts. Got in slightly after Rafa got done practicing. We have good tickets for tomorrows practice but it looks like rain in the morning. I hope he still does the evening practice session if the weather is clear. So excited to finally see Rafa!!!

Does anyone know if they allow cameras in the Citi Open? I will try and call and find out if nobody knows.:)

we got to see Rafa for 15 minutes or so and the rain started! Just glad I got to see him! I have good pictures I will upload later. The rain has stopped but I’m not sure if he will come back out. I hope!
Glad to hear you're getting to see Rafa practice. Do you live in DC or just came for the tournament?

Nole won fair and square…Let’s focus on present and future - he looks fresh and positive :)
Rafa says he could not touch a racket for 20 days. Everybody saw him limping and during the match there was concern on his movement. What is so fair and square about an injury?
Here's what a Rafan says
Of course all of us are looking forward... but no need to disregard the past .

True, all true but feel it is feeding other fans and their whole ‘Rafa is always injured when loses’ type comments....I believe everything Rafa says....Anyway I can’t wait to see him plan in 3 days :)

I saw the live on fb but didn't see the limp. Hope it was not the case, Rafa's had a lot of injuries already...

His bh and serve seem to be much improved, his return could be better though. He made some df and ues too but it's just practice afterall. (they were playing points like they would in a real match)
