My thoughts on Rafa’s comeback and prospects at Roland Garros 2013.
Huge thanks goes to @bluemathilde for allowing me to share her wonderful photos of Rafa in this article.
I love writing about tennis, especially about Rafa, so I was completely stoked when @RafaelNadalFC asked me to contribute to their article on Bloggers and Writers Agree: The French Open Trophy is Rafael Nadal’s to Win.
The contribution was about my thoughts of Rafael Nadal’s comeback and prospects at RG13.
Here it is:
I love tennis and I love the tennis world; attending tournaments, watching on TV, talking about players, reading tennis blogs and hanging with fans on Twitter.
For me, and I know for a lot of other fans, Rafa makes the tennis world even better.
Being from Melbourne, the Australian Open is my home slam. And although the 2013 event was fabulous, the truth is that every single day of the tournament fans and organisers felt the gaping hole left by Rafa’s absence.
But what a comeback he’s made since then!
Now, just seeing Rafa walk on to a tennis court makes me happy.
And knowing he’s in such great form makes me ecstatic.
Eight is a lucky number.
Can the streak of eights continue with Rafa surpassing last year’s record breaking seventh Roland Garros title?
Yes. I’m confident it can.
But regardless of the result, I’m grateful that Rafa will be back in action in a grand slam.
And not just any grand slam.
Roland Garros; where the King of Clay reigns.
Until next time
