I was filling up again today (quelle surprise!) looking at the reaction of Rafa's family on yesterday's result.
I mean ... we feel their agony, don't we? As fans, we get the bitter disappointment of what those final defeats might have meant, but these people really have to feel it ... to live it.
I just remember Miguel-Angel in Melbourne on that 30-15 point that Rafa curled out. He first thought he'd got it in, and then had to be muted and told otherwise. How he wanted that win for his nephew.
So to see him in particular standing on the boarding and all but throw himself over the family is just fabulous.
And how proud is Dad? Awesome scenes ...
