This is for my cousin Cat who has also been training for the Boston Marathon after qualifying last year in under 3 and a half hours HOLY SH-T. Just 3 more weeks, right? And then you promised - take it easy!

Anyway, Cat loves Rafa. Which means she’ll be watching him this weekend at the Sony Ericsson Open. Here he is during his doubles match; tonight he’s playing Santiago Giraldo on the singles side. Last week’s loss to Federer at BNP Paribas was pretty underwhelming as far as meetings between those two go. Roland Garros starts in 8 weeks. Maybe a lull right now isn’t a bad idea before building towards Paris.
