The evidence mounts each day that Rafa is loving New York in a way that he hasn’t before.
For starters, he’s playing better than he ever has here. He’s beginning to look like a favorite. He finished at 1:16 a.m. last night and didn’t complain about late night Open tennis like he has in the past. And, apparently, he’s even loving the music on the JumboTron.
Yup, that’s Rafa, mouthing the words to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” during the last change over in his thrasing of Feliciano Lopez in the fourth round last night. The evidenece is even clearer from ESPN’s broadcast last night. Either way, he’s loving it, and I’m loving it too.
