Tomeu Nadal: Rafael Nadal’s brother?! Mystery solved!

This afternoon (CET) Facebook and Twitter were on fire as soon as our champion posted a photo of himself with his ‘brother’ Tomeu Nadal. The question on everyone’s mind was: Does Rafael Nadal really have a brother?

We all know he has a sister Isabel, but we’ve never heard of a brother. Thanks to Neil Harmon, reporter from The Times, we found out that this photo is connected with a promotion for one of his sponsors, Poker Stars: “For those confused about Rafa’s brother, it is a promotion for a Poker Challenge. And brilliant it is too by the way.” Rafa’s PR agency, B1PR, said via twitter that we will find out more tomorrow about Rafa’s brother: “Mañana mas sobre el HERMANO de @RafaelNadal ;)

So the answer to all your questions is very simple: World No. 1 Rafael Nadal doesn’t have a brother and as always it was a good stunt for all who believed it. Funny Rafa :)

  1. I always knew it was a prank….anyway his supposed to be bro never even came close to Rafa…..coz Rafa is unique..


  2. The photo above with the two of them together looks like it could be Isabel wearing a wig!


  3. He kind of looks like Xisca? Maybe it’s more of a defacto brother-in-law situation. I mean, she’s the head of the social integration for RNF.


  4. They have a strong resemblance, maybe he need to ask his parents some questions (hehe :D.)


  5. He really looks like Rafa,oh my, what a similarity😱😱😱, I still ❤️ My Champ😊
