Maria Francisca Perello welcomes Rafael Nadal at the airport, gives him a warm hug

Rafael Nadal enjoyed an emotional embrace with his wife Maria Francisca Perello after touching down in Mallorca following the historic Australian Open triumph.

She waited for him at Palma de Mallorca airport on Wednesday to greet him with a big hug after the long journey back, and this adorable moment was captured by the paps and posted on the website of the British tabloid Sun.

I signed up for Acapulco and Indian Wells, but I have to make a decision that is in accordance with what my body allows me to do.

Acapulco is the closer one [and] I would like to be there but I have to see what is the perspective.

  1. Fedal are teaming up for Laver Cup 2022. WOWEEEE

    “Tennis superstars Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have confirmed they will be teaming up later this year for the fifth edition of the Laver Cup, to be held at The O2 in London from September 23-25, 2022.”

      • Clarification to my previous post: J.E. doesn’t know it, I don’t know it nor does anyone know it as we are not with him in his private life.

        Regardless it is irrelevant to how I feel about Rafa as a player or as a person. Whatever he is is perfectly fine by me.

      • Mark….Thank you for the clarification…

        I thought J.E. was way out of line for his post and it annoyed me….

      • Marileena,
        Yes J.E.’s comment annoyed me too. I should have capitalized the NOT in my original post which would have better conveyed my meaning. No more posting in the middle of the night for me.

      • What are you trying to say J.E? Surely the whole point of communicating with people is that they understand what you are saying? To suggest or vaguely imply something about someone that may be insulting or offensive or damaging to their reputation is the act of a coward and if the statement is also untrue it is libellous. Either have the courage of your convictions and spell out exactly what you mean and be prepared to stand by your words if challenged or keep your thoughts to yourself.

      • Ginagigi, I got it after Mark replied to JE and that’s why I said “both of you can take a hike.” I still stand by that. Already we have given them too much oxygen. How dare they!!!

      • Your implication is based on what facts? I believe you are dead wrong.
