In an interview to AS Rafael Nadal commented on the rumours about him getting married to his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello in June after the French Open. “I do not want to get involved in this circus. So I get married in June? Where does this come from? The reality is that you get tired and you disconnect.
They say many false things and then you correct, so you do not even to put attention on that. Every day a new history comes. I tried to keep my personal life in private and live it my way. I cannot look at false things”, said Nadal, who will probably get married in October.
Asked if he would have preferred a tougher first round against Yannick Hanfmann, Nadal replied: “There is nothing written on this aspect, there is not a big influence. There were bad and good experiences in both ways. At the end of the day, the main thing is to be doing well enough to win matches every day, and there are some where you have to do something extra.
If you reach the rounds where there are opponents who make you give the best, you have to equal them or overcome them to win. Hanfmann did not play bad, but it worked and now there is Yannick Maden who won four matches here including qualies Opponents always want you to win.
I try not to lose the perspective that every day is a challenge and a test.” Nadal will face Yannick Maden on Wednesday.
