Nadal to become father for the first time, expecting wife Maria: Report
Rafa Nadal’s 2022 season just got better. The 22-time Grand Slam champion, who is unbeaten in two majors held so far – winning both the Australian and French Open titles – is set to become a father for the first time. Nadal and his wife Maria Francisca Perello are expecting their first child, according to Spanish magazine ‘Hola’. Recent photos of Maria from their vacation on a yacht confirm the rumour, although the couple has yet to make the news public.
Rafa and Maria have been together since they were teenagers and they got married three years ago. Nadal has repeatedly said that he would love to have children, and now we will see him in the new role of father at the age of 36. His most important rivals, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, have successfully accepted paternity and remain competitive on the tennis circuit. ,
Nadal was seen enjoying a well-deserved break with his family and friends on his beautiful yacht, although he started training for the upcoming Wimbledon this month, hoping to play it if his leg allows him .

Let’s go back to this day in 2008 and @RafaelNadal won his first grass court title at @QueensTennis
Remember what happened after @wimbledon?
Nadal, who has been battling a left leg injury, once again overcame his physical problems and started the new season on a grand note. Rafa has won both Major titles this year, winning the Australian Open and Roland Garros in the same season for the first time in his career. At 36 years old, Nadal is a comfortable leader of the ATP race, thanks to those points in the Majors and four ATP titles.
The Spaniards will give their best to prepare for Wimbledon and try to secure their first title in 12 years in London. A rib fracture forced Rafa to miss the start of the clay swing at Monte Carlo and Barcelona. He returned to Madrid and Rome with only two wins, struggling with his foot and gathering dark clouds over his Roland Garros preparation.
Nadal traveled to Paris with his doctor, and he needed an injection into his leg before every match in order to eliminate the pain and endure a best-effort five-set. As before, Rafa was the loser at Roland Garros, claiming his 14th title in 18 trips to Paris.
