Rome: Scrappy Start

5/11/2011Rafaholics ™



Rafa took on qualifier Paolo Lorenzi from Italy in his second round match, having never played before, Rafa seemed to be quite not into the match, it seemed to me that Rafa's mental & physical game was off, not at all what we expect [demand]  from Rafa. Still Rafa out of sort managed to find a victory.

He’s through 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-0 and will face the winner of Feli/Kohlschreiber next.

Rafa had this to say in his presser:

"It was a really tough match for me, I played poorly and not at my level, I really thought in the second set that I was heading home.
"I'm not feeling good at all with my tennis after Madrid. I really need some more matches to find my groove again after such a final defeat."


Vamos Rafa! Hang in there!!!
