According to HOLA! Magazine, Rafael Nadal is officially off the market after proposing to his girlfriend Maria Francisca "Xisca" Perello eight months ago in Rome.


That would place the engagement in the month of May, perhaps around the time when Nadal won his eighth Rome ATP Masters 1000 title.

The 32-year-old has actually been off the market for a long time—he's been dating Perello for 14 years. They started dating in 2005, which is the same year that Nadal started dominating Roland Garros. He has since won 11 French Open titles and six other Grand Slams.

The world No. 2 just lost in the final of the Australian Open, in straight sets to Novak Djokovic. Perello was in Melbourne supporting Nadal, having made the trip Down Under for the first time in 2017 when Nadal referred to her as a "wild card" entry.


Nadal will no longer be the only member of the Big 3 (and Big 4) to not have a wedding ring on his finger. Roger Federer got married in 2009, Novak Djokovic wed in 2014 and Andy Murray tied the knot in 2015.

Nadal and Perello's wedding is scheduled for the fall in Mallorca, though no details have been revealed.
