Rafael Nadal is not meshing private life with public life. He keeps his personal life private, even his wedding as well. In 2019, Spaniard tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello in a quiet ceremony in a seaside fortress in Majorca. Guests were requested to lock up their phones before entering the venue.
How Did Maria Francisca Perello Become The Wife Of Rafael Nadal
According to reports, Maria Francisca was a friend of Nadal’s younger sister, Maribel. Both of them met each other in 2005. Since the beginning of their relationship, Maria has attended several of Rafa’s matches but does not appear in many press conferences. And she has barely revealed her relationship with a Spanish stalwart and prefers to keep herself away from social media.
“Even if my family asks me about Rafael, I prefer not to say much. The fact is that I just don’t feel comfortable talking about these things, even in private. It’s what works for me and what works for Rafael and me as a couple. We wouldn’t have it any other way,” Maria said in an interview.
Each other couple made their farewell for their more than a dozen years of love life a couple of years ago. The media calls her Xisca, but Rafael Nadal calls his wife, Mary.
