His love life has also been pretty steady with long time love, Xisca Perello.
Perello and Nadal have been a thing for over a decade. How long must a woman wait for her guy to propose? Though there’s no specific time frame, 10 years seems like a lot!
Though Xisca is very private about her relationship with her tennis star boyfriend, one thins is for sure, she is a very patient woman.
Perello was born Maria Francisca Perello on May 8, 1988. The Spaniard is not your typical athlete wag. Time has proven she is not interested in fame or the spotlight.
Xisca is a natural beauty and she’s never seen wearing a lot of make-up.
Her partner may be worth millions but she is also a career woman herself. Xisca studied business administration in London and she is known to be extremely smart and driven.
Perello also has a degree in English and had previously studied business administration in Palma de Mallorca, so is clear to see she keeps busy, reason why she’s rarely seen attending matches to cheer for her man. However, the times she has, the couple has shown to be very affectionate to each other.
Several reports on the highly private, Miss Perello agree that another reason she doesn’t attend many of his matches is because she doesn’t want to distract him while he is kicking but on the court.
Perello used to work for Mapfre, a Spanish company endorsing Nadal. In 2012 she was named Director for Social Integration of the Rafael Nadal Foundation.
The couple met while growing up in Palma de Majorca, island off the coast of Spain. Where they both attended the same high school, is also where their families still reside. They officially began dating in December 2005.
