    I remember an old stat about Rafa that he had never once defended a hard court title. Was that still true? Is this his first time? Kind of astonishing.

    Not just hard court. Any non-clay title. (Although, he did win two Wimbledons that he played in a row, with a withdrawal in the middle.)

    I think people forget how frequently he would miss 4-6 months. He might be the "healthiest" he's ever been, in terms of not missing a chunk of the year. He's also on a fantastic run of almost always reaching the semifinals.
