Who is dating nadal
Two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal has gotten engaged to his girlfriend of 14 years, Mery Perelló.

Interestingly, athletics was not too far from his family as he has an uncle who used to play professional football named Miguel Ángel Nadal, as well as another named Toni Nadal, who played tennis and was even instrumental to bringing Rafael into the sports when he was just three.
Not so long after he began playing as a child, it became apparent that he was cut out for the sports and he would grow to dominate despite the fact that he was playing both football and tennis.

He stands at 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in) above the ground and has a body weight of 85 kg (188 lbs).
From the 23, he won 16, losing 3 to Roger Federer, 3 to Novak Djokovic, and 1 to Stan Wawrinka.
Interestingly, he got to beat Federer 6 times and only got the last laugh against Djokovic three times.
He would go on to take the ATP Newcomer of the Year Award in 2003, continue to rise until he reaches the World’s number one spot for the first time on 8 August 2008.
Having won his first Grand Slam title in 2005, he would go on to appear in 23 by the end of 2017.
In Wimbledon Open 2018, Djokovic defeated Nadal 6-4, 3-6, 7-6, 3-6, 10-8 following one of the longest semi-finals in a major tennis tournament.
