Grand Slam leader Rafael Nadal doesn’t only hold the title of being the best men's tennis player of all time, but he and his wife Xisca Perello are expecting their first child, where now he will be doing his best to earn the title of best dad in the world. Place a bet on who will win the 22/23 U.S Open at any Ohio Online Casinos such as BetMGM, FanDuel and DraftKings.

The news came to light almost immediately after Nadal’s 14th French Open victory, taking him two clear of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic with 22 Grand Slams.

Xisca and Rafa were together for 14 years before deciding to tie the knot in 2019 and have kept their marriage private, which is close to impossible when you are one of the most achieved athletes in the world.

His wife doesn't usually attend the matches, sharing that Nadal’s hyper-focus during competition can lead the couple to fight. “He needs his space when he is competing,” she said in 2011. “And just the idea of me hanging around and waiting on his needs all day tires me out.

According to Spanish Magazine Hola, the couple are ready for the next stage in their relationship with Xisca pregnant. After 17 years together maintaining a high level of privacy, it’s no surprise the couple have yet to formally announce the news.
