Anyway, as the former owner of VamosRafael.com, I want to tell you that there was no litigation between VR.com and Rafa’s management. If there was, they never told me about it.

And as for the ATP getting involved, I have no knowledge of that either.

We merged the sites when it became apparent that I couldn’t keep up the same level of quality Rafa fans had become used to. I’m hoping that RN.com will be able to do that in the future.

Vamos, Rafael!!!

I only know that everybody say it merged with the official site and I can't understand how people buy that story

VamosRafael became the most important site of Rafa on internet so when the official site was launched they realized that they couldn't fight against VamosRafael and nobody cared about the shitty official site . Then I guess they used one of the most elemental business strategies buying his competitor and making it disappear .

It was more complicated than that. However, this is between VR.com and VB.com and so there's no need to go into details here.
