When I started this website in March this year, I believed that it might become the right place for many Rafael Nadal fans all over the world to get the latest news on our champion. From day to day the number of you were increasing, looking for more Rafa news, photos and videos, and as this site grew I asked you to join me so that we can become not just bigger, but also better.
Many people sent me messages from around the world and some stuck around. WE became a team who updated you all these hours, days and months with honest love for Rafa. We met some wonderful people, enjoyed your comments, laughed with you and shared with you one of the best years ever, thanks to Rafa’s game and his moves on and off the tennis courts. To all of you that visit our website and social media, here is a big THANK YOU!
Our success is due on a a very large part to our contributors, who helped us along the way and guided us when we needed advice. Simply, thank you for being there for us. We will forever be grateful.
On behalf of the Rafael Nadal Fans Team, a special thanks goes out to our contributors. CLICK HERE to see the full list.
We have a lot more thanks to give! In the past nine months, we have grown by leaps and bounds. Did we make mistakes? YES, WE DID, but we are not professionals and we’ve always believed in the good intentions of others, sometimes to our detriment. Each time we apologized and tried to correct it, even though sometimes it was perhaps too late. This is not our job; we do it in our free time, for the love of tennis and Rafa.
People came and went from our team, but just like life goes on, things change and we all find some other priorities in life. The loudest people were Rafans who criticized us and who came to this site and our social media, not to enjoy Rafa’s success, but to find mistakes, falsely accuse us of plagiarism and say how much they hate us and what we do. Why? To discredit us and perhaps to support their own groups or, as one of them said, because they enjoyed it. To those people we say thank you as well, you make us stronger every time you challenge us.
The number of clicks, likes, retweets, and followers does not make us any better than anyone else, nor do we strive to prove that to be the case. We’re here to share an amazing experience that will only last a definite amount of time. Let’s share it with the happiness that it deserves.
Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy 2014! Looking forward to a smashing tennis season. VAMOS RAFA!
