The sporting world is thrilled beyond belief that one of the greatest athletes of all time is officially off the market!
On January 30, 2019, news broke that the great tennis legend, Rafael Nadal, popped the question to his longtime love, Mery Perello, or as she’s best know as “Xisca.” This certainly came as quite a shock because of the couple’s longstanding relationship.
They have officially been together over 14 years and fans have wondered for over a decade just when we would be hearing wedding bells. One of the biggest shocks of all is just how long the news of the engagement has been under wraps.
According to Hello!, the couple has been officially engaged for at least eight months now! Now that the media has caught wind of this thrilling turn of events, fans just want to know every single detail about their engagement and wedding.
From what we’ve been told, the couple is set to tie the knot sometime in the fall of this year in their stunning hometown of Mallorca, Spain.
According to The Knot, Xisca briefly elaborated on her romantic relationship with the tennis legend back in 2011. “He needs his space when he is competing, and just the idea of me hanging around waiting on his needs all day wears me out. It would asphyxiate me.”
She continued: “And then he would have to be worrying about me...No. If I followed him everywhere, I think there’s a risk we might stop getting along.” It’s safe to say that eight years later, they just might have found the key to balancing their work/personal life quite well.
We are so excited to know that they are officially on their way down the aisle together! We wish them nothing but a lifetime of joy and happiness as they embark upon a new journey together as husband and wife.
