Why Rafael Needed Time Off after Oz

Super Star Rafa and Super Model Refeali hook up for SI Swim suit Issue

February 15, 2012 | 08:18 PM

To rest his body? Yes - next to Israeli supermodel Bar Refeali in the SI annual Swimsuit Issue featuring athletes, models, and even the occasional swimsuit, though the bikini top is missing in a number of shots, including some with her top covered by - would you believe? - a tennis racquet...

Perhaps worried that he doesn't have the body to continue as #1, Rafa's developing a new talent with it that can outlast his mastery on clay.

Meanwhile, Roger is back at work in Rotterdam where he won his 1st round 6-4, 6-4 over Nicolas Mahut. Rog hasn't played here in 7 years, and his doing so now on the heels of the Davis Cup tie last weekend may signal how serious he is about giving himself plenty of match play and accruing points to stay ahead of Andy. We may see a more competitive Roger at Indian Wells than we've seen in the last few years, when he appeared to be there not so much to win as to get in some play. Fed will finish this month in Doha.
