You know you're grabbing more global fame when the media is hawking on your supposedly "secret" girlfriend Rafael Nadal
Thanks to DtL!
for tipping me off to the new stories
out on Maria Francisca "Xisca" Perello
, his beautiful girlfriend of three years. She comes from the same town and attends university in Manacor
Uncle Toni Nadal
outed the couple to The Daily Mail
this week saying,
It was a well-kept secret but actually his girlfriend is waiting for him in Majorca.
According to friend Pedro Hernadez
the couple prefers a low-key existence in their home town:
Raf and Xisca are both very shy and ordinary people who like to live simply. They are not at all interested in a celebrity lifestyle. They get together when the tournaments are over. That’s how Raf winds down.
I think most hardcore tennis fans knew the Spaniard had a girlfriend but now we're getting to know more about her. In any case, they seem like a good match to me...
