Although he’s been sick all week, Rafa was looking particularly bad off out there today against Kolya. He was sweating buckets and looked lethargic. He called the trainers but they told him they couldn’t do anything for him. Most players would have thrown in the towel and retired. Rafa? Nope. He was going to make Davydenko earn the win.
On a bright note, Kolya’s form seems to be back to where it was, um, this time last year. All hail, Playstation Kolya!
On a not so bright note, Rafa went right back out there with Marc to play the doubles final.
Seriously, why didn’t Xisca lace his water bottles with horse tranquilizers?! Seems that’s the only way kiddo is going to get any rest. This better not affect your Australian Open performance…idiota!
