  1. In a couple of months, I am hoping to see the name Rafael Nadal amongst the other tennis players as part of the official 2024 Australian Open Draw

  2. Rafa is an Instagram king as well as a tennis king. I’m very optimistic about his return and counting down the days until he’s back on court.

  3. I’m a massive Nadal fan, but there’s uncertainty how competitive Nadal will be when he returns to tennis. He’ll reach the age of 38 in 2024, and he has struggled with injuries in recent years.

  4. Hello everybody Rafa fans, I’m new here. As everybody says, can’t wait to see him back on court next year. I’ve been following him obsessively since 2008 and I miss him so much…hope 2024 will be a great year for him and he’ll decide to keep playing some more!

  5. Missing Rafa so much. How I wish he gets a new rejuvenated body so he can play for multiple years more! Vamos Rafa

  6. Dear Rafa.
