Rafael Nadal is one of the best tennis players in the world and he’s still in his prime, which means he has a chance to go down as the greatest ever if he continues to play at a high level for the remainder of his career. He’s also has a grand slam off the court in longtime girlfriend Maria “Xisca” Perello. Seriously, there relationship unlike most involving a pro athlete. We take a look in pictures.
They’ve been a couple for almost a decade and have done a terrific job of keeping their relationship extremely private during that time.
Nadal and Xisca are the the Spaniard equivalent of high school sweethearts — they met in school in Majorca, their hometown in Spain.
Nadal didn’t go the model route with his girlfriend, although Xisca could definitely pass as one. She’s actually REALLY smart.
At Palma de Mallorca, Xisca studied business administration and then went to London to study business management.
While in London, she also learned English.
Oh, and did we mention she’s only 26?
In case you’re wondering, Nadal is 27. We know, he seems older than that.
The tennis star doesn’t discuss his girlfriend to the media, so we’re not positive on when their relationship began, but reports state they’ve been dating since December of 2005.
Similar reports state that Xisca isn’t interested in fame. She prefers her quiet, almost secret life with Nadal.
Aside from their very rare public appearances, their beach vacation pictures are really all we have to go by.
We mentioned that Xisca isn’t a model, but she could certainly get a photo shoot or two with that beach body.
We’ll go out on a limb and say that she already knows that, but just doesn’t want to expose herself to the world.
Gotta hand it to Nadal: He’s got a looker who isn’t interested in using him for fame. Must be nice.
We know what you’re thinking: “When are they going to get married?” We don’t know, but we’ll let you know when we find out.
