Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal now has 10 million followers on Twitter.

The Spanish 14-time Grand Slam winner took to the micro-blogging site on Wednesday to send a special thank you message to his fans for helping him reach the magic mark.

His post saw him making the sign of ten. The left arm was in a strap.

The 30-year-old joined the social media platform on July 2011.

He was forced to miss Wimbledon this year due to a wrist injury, which he sustained during the French Open.

It's been a disappointing year for Nadal on the court. Injury has seen him miss a lot of action and he was even forced to pull out of the French Open earlier this month due to the injury.

Nadal had reached the second round of the clay court Grand Slam when he had to withdraw.
