That was it.
The last singles match of David's career.
This time Rafa prevailed 6-3, 6-4.
Not that it really matters.
The doubles with Nole and Pico wasn't broadcasted/streamed, unfortunately.
So this was really it...
All about David's farewell tomorrow.

For the last few years, this was how every post about David's next match began here on Vamos David
- with matching pics of him and his respective opponent. Today, I decided to make another set.
For old times' sake and because it's the last opportunity I'll get...
Today, David bids farewell.
To the Argentine crowd, to his fans, to his fellow players and to his career as a tennis player that has shaped his life so far.
These last few days, during the press conferences David often talked about how there are different stages in everyone's life.
And for him, a new one will begin tomorrow. But today, one last time he'll walk onto the court. To play a last match against Rafa and then also a bit of doubles with Nole and Pico.
Only then will this stage, this chapter of his life be closed.
And hopefully, it's going to be the big party David wants.
The event itself is scheduled to begin at 4pm local. TV coverage already starts at 3.30pm local (as you can see on the poster).
But while we got lucky with the official streams for the last two events, this time we'll have to rely on 'unofficial' ones.
Therefore: If you find a stream please link it in the comments.
Edit: So far, we have three working streams, links in the sidebar.
P.S. The stadium at La Rural 2 days ago:
Edit: And this is what it looks like today:
