Rafa is out

Not to be.  A combination of this awful bug that he just can't seem to shake and a thigh/groin injury that was first picked up against Cilic has put Rafa's quest to hold all 4 slams to the sword.

Credit must go to David for battling on when it was most obvious that Rafa was not 100%.  He kept his nerve when needed and fought out the win and will now play against Andy Murray for a place in the Australian Open final.

I will wait until i have read/seen Rafa's press conference before commenting further.  Once i see the press conference i will post it here.

  1. Thanks. Rafa's loss came as a real shocker. I knew he was in for a difficult match but never thought he would get injured (this, I think, is the more troubling of this situation more than the loss of the AusOpen title). I hope the injury is not too serious and Rafa can recover and be in his top form again soon.
