Yesterday, we posted an old photo of Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova that quickly became one of the most popular posts on our page to date. It wasn’t the photo itself that got the attention from fans, however, but rather the caption underneath it. Maria participated in a live Facebook Q&A session with her fans two days ago in Stuttgart, where she is currently playing in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. A fan posed the following question: If Rafael Nadal asked you on a date, would you accept it or not? Maria’s answer? “Not my type.”
Many fans were upset by her answer. Some stated that Rafa would never ask her out, because she is not HIS type. Others stated that she does not measure up to Rafa’s girlfriend, Maria Xisca Parello, and yet others said that she just doesn’t like men like Rafa. Some went too far and insulted her.
So what is your opinion, Rafa fans? Was she right to be honest and speak her mind? Should she choose her words more tactfully and answer more thoughtfully, or should we just calm down and stop taking it so seriously? What do you think? Share your opinions with us here on our website.
