My bottom has been mostly glued to the sofa since early afternoon thanks to the two amazing semi finals at Roland Garros. What fabulous tennis.

We had 'youth' this afternoon, 'experience' this evening.
Sunday will be a corker!🎾

It certainly will.

I’m team Rafa tonight 🔥

NanKate Fri 11-Jun-21 20:11:19

I’m Team Rafa too and so is Bellasnana watching from Malta.

Back to the match.

I’m also rooting for Rafa. A great day of tennis viewing.

Rafa always! Amazing play

Another Rafa fan here. Not looking good, though. C’mon Rafa.

At least a Rafa win would save us from another of Novak's victory bellows we heard on Wednesday☹️

NanKate Fri 11-Jun-21 21:44:53

Oh my oh my ND won the tie break 😏. Come on Rafa 🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾.

Djokovic really is a tennis automaton isn’t he? 🎾🎾🎾

What channel are you getting this on? - I am filled with envy!

Millie22 Fri 11-Jun-21 22:08:06

I can't watch anyone as I'm really worried for Rafa now.

Come on Rafa hang on in there 🤞

Talullah Fri 11-Jun-21 22:14:48

I just can't watch. I am getting far too stressed and the dog's getting upset. So it's off for now.

ixion Fri 11-Jun-21 22:17:33

Think it's Novak's, tbh.

Luckygirl Fri 11-Jun-21 22:19:16

Woe! - there it is!! Thanks.

Grandmadinosaur Fri 11-Jun-21 22:26:39

Poor Rafa. What a fight he put up though ❤️

MiniMoon Fri 11-Jun-21 22:27:15

Doh! I didn't know it was being televised on terrestrial TV.
I've just wasted my evening watching
Star Trek! blush

Grandmadinosaur Fri 11-Jun-21 22:31:19

Oh minimoon Shame you missed it. It’s been on for 2 weeks now. Ladies final tomorrow mens on Sunday.

Grannybags Fri 11-Jun-21 22:36:38

I'm worn out after watching that! Another Rafa fan here. Disappointed but the tennis was amazing!

J52 Fri 11-Jun-21 22:46:06

What amazing tennis, sometimes so fast I couldn’t follow the ball. Those shots!
