Tennis star ‘Rafael Nadal’ will soon tie knot with his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca
17-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal seems to have found happiness outside the Tennis court despite losing the 2019 Australian Open. The tennis player is all set to marry his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca “Xisca” Perello in Autumn this year.
The pair have been together for 14 years, with Mery who has a degree in business, currently working at the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy in Mallorca. She was in Nadal’s team box at the Australian Open, only the second time she has supported him Down Under with the couple reportedly preferring to not travel together to every tournament.
‘For the wedding there is time, I will think about it after retiring from tennis” This is what Rafael Nadal said many times when he was asked about having a family like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray.
But he may have switched idea, as the Magazine reported that Nadal and his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello will get married in Autumn this year. They reportedly got engaged in May last year in Rome and in the last eight months no one – but family members and close friends – learned about the news. Nadal had earlier told Hello magazine that he would love to have children with his girlfriend. “Obviously, I have the intention of forming a family. I love children and I would like my children to do what they like,” he said then.
He will probably soon make the first step, getting married probably in late October or November, or December when the tennis off-season goes on.
Let me tell you about Nadal’s girlfriend, Maria is a 30-year-old insurance worker and business graduate. She also serves as a project director for the Rafael Nadal Foundation, the charity he founded almost ten years ago.
