In an interview to El Pais, Rafael Nadal was asked if the rumours about his future wedding with his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello influenced him. According to the Hola Magazine, Nadal will get married this fall.
"It personally did not hurt me. What happens is that you speak a lot about all those things. I red that I was very angry and I was not. We try to keep those things private. If something gets published, it's okay. Everything becomes a circus, we are used to the social media and that media share things that are not true", said the world No.
2. On the Spanish politics, Nadal concluded: "We are in a controversial situation because there were several elections over a short time. I think you should need some consistency, which lacked. Now we voted and there was a winner.
In Spain and the Spaniards think about the personal benefits of their own. You need to be respectful and tollerant towards what the others say. We are in a country where there are different cultures and languages, and so that everything works we have to love us as as a country, with our different ways to live and understand things.
We are in a world where everything tends to the union, more than splitting." Meanwhile Pat Cash commented on the WTA Tour: "In women it's a different story. The 75 percent of times, who wins the first set wins the match.
It's about intensity and focus. There is so much balance and everyone can win. I still coach Coco Vandeweghe on a part time basis, she is recovering from a knee injury. Now I go to Stuttgart because Alexei Popyrin reached the main draw. He is solid mentally and he is still 20 years old."
