Rafa *finally* took to the court today and, well, he's not rusty. He dropped only eight points on his serve for the match, beating Bemelmens 61 64, to notch his 60th win of the year. As if he needed more reasons to smile. Also, a friend told me he read that Rafa got $1.2M for showing up to Bangkok.
It is good to be the king.
It was, however, not good to be Fernando. He's out of Bangkok with a 64 64 loss to Becker. Becker was actually up 4-0 up in that first set. At least Fer got some Muay Thai lessons out of it.
