    Rafa, tú sabes que eres un jugador super talentoso todo y te felicito. Cómo soy tu fan te digo que esa indumentaria que estás usando ahorita no me gusta en lo absoluto. Me repugna cuando estás sacando o jugando ver esos bellos negros debajo de tus brazos. Con esto me arruinaste el momento y me da mucho asco ver un selva de color negro. Me extraña que tu tío o tu entrenador monte digan nada.Ponte tus camisas de antes perdóname pero te vez tan corriente y ojalá ese ritual que haces nos pone peor. Créeme que estoy perdiendo las ganas de verte jugar y te admiro y mucho pero el tenis es algo muy especial. A tus fans, me vale lo que me digan. Es la verdad.

    Being an ardent fan of Nadal I am keeping my fingers crossed for him to defend his title at U S Open.Nadal would win I feel in my heart.Let us all, Nadal die _hard fans pray for his success.

    Rafa. Muchas felicidades por todo lo que has hecho con el tennis. Para mí eres un ejemplo a seguir. No me regañen tu y tus fans, pero lo único que no me gusta es la camiseta sin mangas. Creo que debes volver a usar la camisa con mangas. Lo mejor para ti y a seguir ganando.

    Good to see Rafa this type of dress, but, I disappointed to ur Wimbledon semi finals, that’s ur match but you missed, no problem, another things your confidence level was less, compare to clay court session, so this us open is yours, so good play all the best Rafa vamous, no one stop to you

    Nadalito: You have enriched my life and love of tennis to the bitter end,,

    You exemplify the very best of what sports competition is all about.

    “cha quin fum fa”…says it all; you are a smoking live wire…

    Abrazos , Juanito

    My mom is a huge Rafael fan since he started. She has three kids and theres more pictures of him than us. Tough going for her now but she never misses his games

      Although my family are all adults they feel the same way yours do. I am a big fan of Nadal’s and will stay up all night if necessary to see him play live. Result is I am tired for the rest of the day.

    I had tickets to Miami two years ago and became ill and watched from my bed at home and you won that match. I am so proud to be your fan forever. Thank you for all you have done for tennis and also setting the example of manners and humbleness you show. No breaking rackets and throwing tantrums. You are a wonderful example for the young and the old. Congratulations on the French No 11. Vamos! ❤️

    I want to see you play so bad just once. I know Cincinnati is not your favorite place but I will be able to come because it is close and not as expensive as the U.S. Open. If you don’t play there I promise to see you in Miami next year no matter what it takes. I have waited to see you since you were a young teenager so whenever you decide if your coming to Cincinnati I would like to know. I own a Westgate timeshare and now I know they have one in New York. But I don’t think I can raise the money in time for tickets. I loved watching you win the French Open for the 11 th time. I hope some day to give you pictures you probably already have but they are shots off the tv screen and your father in the stands smiling at you etc…
    You are a true inspiration young man.
