Surprise, surprise! You would’ve never guessed Rafa’s doubles partner for IW
As we all know, Rafa loves to be in Indian Wells, he likes the weather, loves the facilities, great atmosphere, the lovely Indian Wells Tennis Garden and awesome relationship with the owner Larry Ellison.
The other reason he likes the tournament is, he can play doubles too. The top players get byes in the draw, there is always day off between singles, the weather is very reliable and you will never see singles and doubles match with the same player to be played in the same day.
What surprised many tennis fans yesterday is, the player Rafa’s chose to be his doubles partner in IW – Bernard Tomic!!
Two very different players, two absolutely opposite character, totally different personality. And while almost everyone else think that this is not a good pairing, I think that maybe we will be surprised, positively! We know how great doubles player Rafa is, but Bernard showed he can play doubles too, Olympics in Rio.
Recently Rafa had great word for Tomic. Rafa had told the Courier Mail ‘He’s a big talent and he improved a lot in terms of mentality. He has won important matches and is improving. He’s a charismatic player for the tour. He’s a great guy.‘
We will have to wait and see if they will really play and how it will go.
In the meantime, let’s remember Rafa’s reaction when he found out that Bernard will join the Indian Aces team!
