Rafa Nadal’s Parents To Divorce
June 27, 2009 · Print This Article
Well, it seems like just as quick as your life can seem great, a lot of things can come crashing down just as quickly. Not only did Rafa lose early at the French, which was his first loss in four years at the event. Not only did he withdraw from Wimbledon, as the defending champ—It was released earlier this week that his parents have gone public about their pending divorce. Rumbles of the problems between the two have been heard for more than two months now, with Sebastian and Ana Maria going public about the news yesterday.
Obviously Rafa has always said how important family is to him, with the news obviously affecting his mental state. A source close to the Nadal camp said, “Rafa is devastated. All through the past couple of months he has been trying to get his tennis back on track, but his heart has been elsewhere. In public he has put on a brave face, but in private he has been hoping for a reconciliation and fervently wishing this wasn’t happening. Now he has returned home and is catching up with his family. He talked about resetting his body after withdrawing from the championships and yet he has a more difficult task.”
The scorn champion will now have to put the sad news about his beloved family on the sidelines (if possible), and begin the concentrate on regaining his world number ranking which he will likely lose after The Championships.
