It was a "unique feeling" for David and a very nice match for everyone who got to watch it. And in the end, David won 6-4, 7-6(6). But what really mattered is that everybody involved had a good time. Including little Sossie, there on David's arm during the trophy ceremony (yes, they had one).
Edit: Here's a photo from that ceremony.
Post etc coming tonight (European time).
And David and Rafa also in Unquillo, to which somewhere between another press conference and another tennis clinic (not open to the public this time) they paid a visit, as the photo above shows.
But the main part of the action today will of course happen just a little further south, in the city of Córdoba, at the Orfeo Superdomo. Which will look very different from the way it does in the photo below.
This time in the form of the free streaming site by TV Publica, the channel that broadcasts the event in Argentina.
So, what to expect from this exhibition match? I guess last night we got an idea of how unevenly matched a retiring David and the world #1 will probably be. But I'm sure this match will still be a lot of fun, for David and Rafa, as well as for David's home crowd.
To pass the time, a few impressions from the inevitable press conference today. David talks about how great it is to have Rafa in Argentina and to play these last two matches with him, Rafa talks about his long absence from the Tour and his comeback, and about how much he loves tennis, and then David gets asked again about the current Davis Cup dispute but once more he refuses to get entangled in it. - Some things have already changed.
