It’s difficult to stay away from the media when you are dating world’s top tennis star but Xisca Perello has managed to do it over the years. Longtime girlfriend of tennis legend Rafael Nadal, Xisca prefers to stay away from the media attention as much as she can.
However, if you are a die-hard Nadal fan, it’s obvious you will be inquisitive to know about the girl in his life and here is all you need to know.
Thirty-year-old Xisca Perello aka Maria Francisca Perelló is an insurance worker and a business graduate. She also works as the project director for The Rafa Nadal Foundation, a charitable organization the tennis ace opened 10 years ago.
Apparently, the duo started dating in 2005 but they know each other for a much longer time.
Both Rafa and Xisca prefer to keep their personal life to themselves and has not announced their engagement or wedding plans yet.
It’s not a regular phenomenon for Xisca to come to watch Rafael’s matches. Talking about it in the past, Xisca told The Telegraph: “He needs his space when he is competing, and just the idea of me hanging around and waiting on his needs all day tires me out.”
“It would asphyxiate me. 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.”
Such fiercely she prefers to guard her private life that Xisca doesn’t have any social media account.
