A longtime Rafael Nadal fan, LaWanda Watts, is a tennis superfan who has become famous for her selfies with the players in Indian Wells. She is also a prominent ambassador for tennis on Twitter and is always sharing her positive vibes with other fans and pleasure.

Good things come to those who wait so we were very happy to see that the L.A. native finally got a selfie with one and only Rafa on Saturday.


  1. Congratulations to Taylor!👏🏆
    And thank you, Rafa, for showing us the heart of a warrior once again.🙏
    Take rest and recover well, nothing is more important than your well being.❤️

  2. Hahaha

    Finally our ordeal is over!

    Rafa has chosen his body over another set of pain. Well done champ, great decision.

    Well done to Fritz. I did not enjoy this match. Sorry.

    Nice spending time with you Rafans as always! See you all at the clay!

    Great things ahead for our champ!

  3. A shame for Rafa and for us. But go and get some rest which no doubt is much needed. See you on the clay

  4. Depending on Rafa’s physical condition, I’m not sure that I want to see a third set…

    It’ll be sad if Rafa goes out in the final of a Masters 1000 like this, but that’s how it goes sometimes. He needs to preserve the his body for the bigger picture.

    But hey champ… Don’t get broken, and a break of Fritz serve would be nice!

    • I agree Mac. Such a shame he is injured for the final but hey I’m sure we can all live with 20-1 should Rafa lose. Just as longbye is ok for the clay!!

    • So painful watching Rafa suffer…but as always, he will give his all win or lose.
      Vamos Rafa💪❤️

  5. Fritz smells blood in the water and he’s going for this one with everything he has.

    Rafa is still limited it seems, just managing his body.

    Champ needs to hold now.

  6. One set down. Rafa definitely not himself. He would normally eat Fritz for breakfast!

    Fritz himself doing very well putting his foot on Rafa’s neck since he also had ankle troubles and was a doubt for the match.

    Yet here we are and our champ is fighting his own body again.

  7. Rafa seems lifeless out there…

    So he’s called for the Dr and physio… Hopefully it’s nothing too serious to carry forward.

  8. All commentators on prime including greg rusedski who is court side say there is something wrong with Rafa thats been kept under wraps. I really hope not

  9. Who’s here for the final?

    Let’s go Rafa! Lost serve already… What’s new?

    All the way champ!

  10. All the best today, Rafa👍🤛👏💪🍀🎾❤️Lucky LaWanda-beautiful shot by Brunskill🥰
