The 2017 Australian Open will be special for Rafael Nadal. It was the tournament that started his comeback to the top of the ATP rankings. Also, it was the first time he brought his then-girlfriend to Australia. Check out the hilarious thing he said when asked about this.

 

 
Rafael Nadal On His Girlfriend Coming To Australia
Rafael Nadal had just won his 4th round match against Gael Monfils. The interview started off by Rafa talking about the match and what he did to win. What we are interested in is what happened towards the end when he was asked about his girlfriend coming to Australia for the first time.

Rafa said that they both were enjoying Australia and they saw many sights in Brisbane where a Rafa played his first tournament. He said that it was nice that finally after 10 years she got a ‘wild card’ to come to Australia. Everyone in the stadium started laughing when he said this.

I am sure Xisca who was Rafa’s girlfriend then will no longer be a ‘wild card’. This is because Rafa and Xisca got married in October of 2019. Xisca is now always going to be there at every single one of Rafa’s matches no matter where it is. She won’t have to for a while because the ATP tour has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is will definitely cause tennis fans to wonder – when are we going to see tennis again? Unfortunately, there is no clear answer because the suspension was extended twice. As of now, you can expect the tour to return in July assuming the situation with the virus is under control by then.

When the tour returns then, we can expect Rafa to chase his 20th grand slam title to match his great rival – Roger Federer. When he does, we can expect Xisca to be there not as ‘wild card’.

Rafael Nadal Reflects On His First Day Of Training

The coronavirus pandemic impacted the world in many negative ways. To fight against this pandemic, Spanish superstar Rafael Nadal has directed his focus towards relief efforts for those affected by it. This took up a ton of his time, but now, he’s finally found the time to train. Check out what he said about his first day in training.

In an interview with La Voz De Galicia, Nadal revealed he had trained for the first time in a while. He also revealed that he hasn’t been training at his academy and went on to explain why. He said,

“I’ve been able to train in a private house because I’m not sure if I can go to the academy. So I preferred to avoid confusion and go train at a friend’s private country house, which has a lead and left it to me.”

Rafa also talked about some restrictions that were in place because of the pandemic and how things are actually getting better.

“Luckily it seems that little by little we are containing this disaster. Since yesterday we can go for a walk, something so simple that we always take it for granted but we enjoy it again.”

Everyone is feeling the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. People are now stuck in their homes and the worst part is that they have no tennis to keep them entertained. Hopefully, that won’t be the case for much longer since the development of a vaccine is well underway.

If a vaccine is developed, that will mean the return of the ATP Tour soon. This is something Rafael Nadal will definitely be hoping for as he wants to be the GOAT of tennis. To reach this goal, Nadal has to hold one record – the most Grand Slam titles.

Swiss maestro, Roger Federer, currently holds the record with a cool 20 Grand Slam titles. However, Rafa is just one Major away from equaling said record. The Spaniard will desperately want the opportunity to reach this goal this year and, hopefully, he will get it.
