Rafael Nadal Fans was first created on May 25th, 2010 when we started a new account on Twitter (@RafaelNadalFC) to help support Rafa and his foundation and to meet and connect with other fans. After thinking about it for a long time where and how to start our first ever website, RafaelNadalFans.com opened on March 10th, 2013. We wanted Rafa’s fans to have a fun site to visit that will provide them with all the news, information, photos, videos, and everything related to him. We have been a phenomenal success, getting readers from over 200 countries around the world.

Running a website is a lot of work, definitely not easy, but we love doing it. Now, just like day one, this all-volunteer not-for-income generating site, manned 24 hours, is here because of love for Rafa and true fan dedication. We appreciate everyone visiting the site, and we hope that everyone loves it and continues to return on a regular basis. Thank you all for a very successful first year and we hope you will continue to celebrate with us for many more to follow. VAMOS RAFA!

  2. Hi Rafa, I’m so proud to say I’ve been a fan of yours, since you went “Pro”. I was intrgued by your passion and style for the game. It is never a dull match when you are on the court. I’m having Rafa withdrawals right now while you are not playing. After being hit “head on” on the interstate, I wasn’t expected to make it alive (by helicopter) to hospital. (fatalities involved) I have been through 48 reconstructive surgeries, while healing I would watch you play and it would inspire me a little more every time – to fight to overcome this horrific thing that happened to me. Before accident, I was a “fitness trainer” at a health club, where I live, I set a goal and that wAs to make it to 1 US OPEN to see you play. Since then I’ve lost everything making my dream out of reach. I still haven’t given up all hope. I still hope one day, I’ll find a way to meet my mentor in life- Rafa! Thank you for inspiring me to never give up, not to make excuses and to not look back. One of your best heart felt fans, Debby. Vamos Rafa, Vamos!!!
