Earlier today, Rafael Nadal took to Twitter to send a special thank you to his fans for helping him reach 10 million followers on the social media platform.
The image was simply captioned:
WE ARE 10 MILLION!
Big thanks to all of you for your incredible support!!
ALWAYS WITH RAFA! VAMOS!!
Dear Rafa: How wonderful to have 10M fans! What a tribute to you as well as your talent as one of the greatest tennis player to play the game. God’s richest blessings for your complete recovery and success to you in Rio! Just one of your true fans from Texas, USA.
Love your photo Rafa my son. Fantastic to have sooo many people love n admire u for the great player n wonderful individual u r.

Do relax n enjoy yourself with family n Maria while you can. I search Facebook daily for news of u. God Bless n I pray make u fit n well soon. Vamos Rafa. Love yr Aussie Abuela. 😇😀😊💥💥💥
Rafa it is amazing that for you there are 10,000,000 fans, who not only thoroughly enjoy your tennis, but observe characteristics in your life that they can follow as examples.
You are such a gentleman, and bring great credit to yourself, Maria, family and country.
I am praying for healing of your wrist, and great strength, so that it will be God willing possible for you to return in Toronto, then go onto the Olympics in Rio.
Love and Prayers,
So am not surprised he has so many followers on Twitter he is such an amazing tennis player and also amazing as a person I can’t get myself involved in Wimbledon this year I haven’t yet found one exciting match to watch
Without Rafa tennis is just so boring hope he comes back soon
Wimby is quite boring without Rafael, but it is great to see him enjoying himself on that beautiful

Hi Rafa, your Twitter following is very well deserved and we cannot wait until we see you back paying before us again, Wimbledon is not the same without you at all.
