A new report has surfaced on Rafael Nadal and Maria Francisca Perello’s wedding details. Has the date been revealed? Find out, here.

According to Ultima Hora, Rafa and Mery will get married in Puerto Pollensa on October 19. The lovely couple will say “I do” on a property near La Fortalesa.

It is expected that this will be one of the biggest social events of this year, with well-known faces from the world of sport – the presence of, among others, tennis players Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco. King Juan Carlos, with whom Rafa has an excellent relationship and whom we have seen this summer with the tennis player and his fiancée, will also attend. Pau Gasol and Iker Casillas might be there too with other 500 guests, El Pais reported.

Very little has been revealed about the details of the wedding and the couple have declined to comment on their plans to the press so far.

  5. Margo,
    You are so right. It must be brutal playing on hot concrete on some days.
    Steph Myles,who herself plays and has been a journalist attending all the important tourneys for decades,believes that in a few years the Oz Open will be an indoor tourney due to the weather. I truly hope the us open will close the roof more often in similar conditions for player health and fan comfort.

  6. It seems that Rafa arrived in NYC last night. They’re having scorching weather apparently so hoping his first practice session goes well. So eager for a good draw on Thursday.

    • RR…. We are not having scorching weather… Yesterday was rather warm but today is in the mid 80’s, quite nice… Weather forecast calls for some rain during the week.but next weeks forecast starting on Monday for the opening of the US Open is mid to upper 70’s for the week… Obviously that can change but anything like that is better than the brutal weather during last years Open where the players and spectators were dropping like flies…. myself included….
      I know you are concerned for a “good draw” for Rafa but I’m not worried at all…
      It is amazing how inconsistent the next Gen has become… Zverev, Tsis, Kach, … even Nishikori… So right now Medvedev is on a roll… but Rafa schooled him, big time … Danill is ranked 5 because all of the next Gen were crumbling in the early rounds of the past few tournaments leaving the door wide open for him to come up in the rankings…….. I’m not taking anything away from Medvedev but right now, I just don’t consider him a threat…
      I honestly feel Rafa will have a tremendous tournament and between his amazing play and his smart thinking when faced with adversity, our boy should prevail…

      7 more days and counting till I see Rafa’s backwards hat during the day at practice . and that black sleeveless shirt at night…

      VAMOS RAFA!!!!

      • By a good draw I mean that it would be preferable that he doesn’t have to face the odious N.K. Not that there’s any doubt that he will beat him but we can do without the drama.
        The weather channel said that with the humidex this afternoon it will feel like 95. To a Canadian that sounds scorching! LOL.
        Have a great time next week.

      • RR, 95 is high but it also depends on the humidity level which actually causes such oppressive conditions. Right now the humidity level is 93% which is a dangerous level and coupled with a dew percent of 72% makes for extremely poor conditions especially if you’re on a tennis court practicing.

        I hope Rafa keeps his practice to early mornings. Alex Zverev and Roger were out practicing early on Sunday morning probably trying to avoid the heat onslaught. I’ve been receiving NYC weather advisories since Saturday advising caution. With a lack of wind it’s even worse. I did not leave the house yesterday but may venture out today.

        I hope the humidity level drops next week otherwise it may be a repeat of last year.


      • Yes, thanks for sharing the funny story about Nick Kyrgios, Marileena 🙏 I wonder why he doesn’t hire a coach……🤔😅

        I know as long as Rafa is healthy and competitive, he has a good chance of winning the US Open but I am a worrywart😬

        Good luck🍀 Vamos RAFA💪❤️

    • How excited, Rafa is in NYC!!! ❤️ Have a wonderful time Marileena🤗
      RR, me too, a good draw will be nice. I hope the big hitters stay away from Rafa, especially the bad boy🤞

      • Thanks so much RR and Mimi….

        And you guys… For me it is so much fun to watch Rafa kick Nick’s a– …. And honestly the way things are going for Nick I don’t see him getting passed the second or 3rd round at most… He’s spiraling downward … Talk about needing a therapist…

        I remember a few years ago at the Miami Open, I went to watch Nick’s practice … I’m sitting on the bench and there is no one sitting to my left except a woman 2 seats over… It was Nicks mom… So he comes out volleys for about 2 minutes …goes to the sideline…grabs a chair and brings it to the baseline and sits down… He then tells the guy on the other side…”come on” . And there he is wanting to practice from a sitting position as he reaches out to hit the ball back… This went on for about a minute while everyone just started to laugh at his antics…Talk about lazy… I couldn’t help but turn my head to look at his mothers reaction and all of a sudden I hear … “Cut it out Nick!!” He looks left to where the sound came and he continues from the sitting position… and again I hear “Cut it out!!” … and he looks over and gets up and says looking right in his moms direction “Ok Ok” ..He then proceeds to hit wildly during his practice in which one of his shots went so high and over the court that it landed on a near court where a game was in play… And I’m thinking…what the h-ll is wrong with this guy! lol

        At the end of the day… I don’t worry about who Rafa will face… He knows his ability … He’s in great shape and he has the “years” of experience behind him… That’s our boy alright!

        VAMOS RAFA!!!

      • Thanks for sharing, Marileena. Hope to hear many more fun stories at US Open from you. 🙂

    • Yes, good arrival, it is only 1 and a half hours flight from Montréal to New York. Good training session Monday 😀 I am going to Majorca end August so, as last year will not
      yet know when he will return home. Good news about the wedding date ☺ Sat 19 th Oct. I hope To stay until then but would not go to Pollenca that peninsula will probably be closed to the public. They may have célébrations and décorations in Manacor, his home town. ☺ Obviously he will forget atp Basel for a honeymoon as he has done the past couplé of years but what about Bejing and Shanghai Sept. 30 to Oct 13 ? China is on the calendar, it is possible to go but cutting it a bit fine. 😯 Fiona in Paris

      • Fiona,
        Rafa arrived in NYC after spending the week at a private club in the Bahamas as per his instagram.
        He practiced on Ashe yesterday with Verdasco and today was scheduled to be with Cuevas. Enjoy your trip to Mallorca.

  7. I don’t think Novak’s elbow was the cause of his loss to Medvedev. Having watched the match, i saw that in the first set N was running M raged from side to side at the back of the court. It was M who needed the trainer. Then in the second and third set M played casino tennis going for his shots and hitting every second serve like a first. Insanely good. N just didn’t have the answer and was stunned.

    Now, Medvedev is able to beat Novak because he said they have similar playing styles and he can read Novak’s game. Not so with Rafa, as Rafa is a quirky lefty player (his demolition of Medvedev in the Montreal final is a case in point). So it’s all about match ups.

    Rafa could learn something from Medvedev’s win against Novak and that is to attack Novak’s second serve at every opportunity because it has much less pace and maintain an element of surprise to keep him guessing and out of his comfort zone. Easier said than done should Rafa and Novak get to the final of theUS Open, but possible.

    • Well said Lorna👏

      I actually turned off my TV when Daniil Medvedev lost the first set but I am glad I turned it back on a few minutes later and witnessed the come back of Medvedev against the world no1!

      Watching the final now, it looks like he will win his first Masters 1000 title……

  8. Mimi Lau and Margo
    With all the talk of Rafa never before defending a hard court title-has Roger ever defended a clay court title? It doesn’t get mentioned does it?

    • RR,

      I don’t think so🤔 I think Roger is one of the best clay court players, he has made five finals between 2006 to 2011, won in 2009 but lost the other four to Rafa……

    • RR, Talk is cheap. The bottom line is that Rafa defended his title [I don’t care if it was hard or grass or clay], he won another Masters 1000, is still the leader in Masters wins, and is now No. 1 in the Race to London. I’ve never compared him to Roger or Djokovic and that suits me fine. Each of these three players are champions in their own right. My concern is for Rafa only.


      • With all due respect you do often talk about many players other than Rafa. Will take you at you word that you don’t compare them to him. Not trying to start anything. I share Rafa’s attitude in that I don’t like to fight with people. Peace.

      • RR, re “talk is cheap” I was referring to whomever was saying Rafa never defended a hard court title but they don’t mention the same about Roger on clay. Certainly not you and sorry I was not clear. Agree, peace.

      • Margo.
        Therein lies the problem of posting online. Without hearing the inflection in the voice or seeing the facial expressions comments can easily be misunderstood. What is written can come off sounding the opposite of what was intended. Has happened to me several times on this site where I neglected to say something was meant as tongue in cheek or didn’t fully flesh out an idea.
        The bottom line is that we are die hard Rafa fans to the end. 👍👏🌞

      • I agree and that’s why I don’t take offense. I hope others are reading your pitfalls of posting with no reference points. 👍👏🤗


  9. Cincy [mini] recap:

    Andy lost to Gasquet in R1, 4-6, 4-6. Not too shabby considering his recent hip surgery. He has decided to play challenger event Winston-Salem and won’t play the US Open. He will be working toward getting singles ready.

    Roger lost to Rublev 3-6, 4-6, in R3 in 62 minutes; the fastest loss in 16 years at Cincy.

    Djokovic lost to Medvedev in his semifinal match 6-3, 3-6, 3-6. There are rumors that he is experiencing elbow problems again.

    The final will be contested between Goffin and Medvedev.

      • Should clarify that it was referring to this current swing. Of course does not include I.W. and Miami.

      • Yes, I was thrilled that Rafa defended his Coupe Rogers’ title and I didn’t include him in the “Cincy recap” because he didn’t play there. Initially I thought Roger or Djokovic would win but when I read that Djokovic was having elbow problems I had a hunch he could lose. Some thought it was a given that Djokovic would win.

        And Rafa holds the record for most Masters 1000 titles.


      • Congratulations to Rafa👏😁

        Looking forward to today’s final between Goffin and Medvedev, not Federer or Djoker, both lost to a Russian player😉

        All the best to Rafa❤️

    • CORRECTION: The Winston-Salem Open is an ATP Tour 250 event not a Challenger.

      Andy may play a singles Challenger event during the US Open.

  10. Much love and happiness to a couple making their union official in the sanctity of marriage. Mary has been a part of the Nadal clan for fourteen years now and I bet all are excitedly awaiting for the pitter-patter of tiny feet. I know I am.
