China Open, Beijing 2015
by MAC

Although Rafa didn't win this tournament, it was an excellent result for him to reach his first final since winning the bet-at-home open in Hamburg in July. To get to the final he beat Wu Di, 6-4, 6-4...

...took on Vasek Pospisil for the first time and beat him,7-6(3), 6-4...

...came back from a set down to beat Jack Sock, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3...


...and, most importantly, got his revenge against Fabio Fognini, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.



It's a shame that his opponent in the final was Novak Djokovic since I'm fairly confident that he could have beaten anyone else on the day. Still, he fought harder than the scoreline suggests before losing 2-6, 2-6.




Siempre contigo, Rafa
