Rafa's practiced with Casper Ruud.
Rafa says that it's obvious he'd love to win a title. Now comes a time that, although the tournaments are difficult, if he's in good shape he expects to give himself some chances. But what really makes him happy is to feel he's competitive in every tournament he plays.
When you have been very successful in a tournament, the memories are there & the tournament becomes particularly special for you.
Regarding reaching the top4, Rafa says that being top-4 right now is, not impossible, but quite unlikely. However, if we're talking about ending the year as top-4, he thinks that if he has a good clay season, he'll have chances. Asked about RG, Rafa says it's not a question of dreaming of winning or not. The real thing is that if he plays well he'll have chances to fight for all the clay tournaments and if he plays badly, he won't.
About his start of the season, Rafa says of course it could be better but it could also be worse. He's pleased w/his game & also the results.
He's been quite consistent & played very few bad matches.
