During a media interaction, Nadal spilled the beans on his personal and professional life. He said, “One of the keys to success was to stay at home. I never had any doubts about that.”
He went on to say, “My career would have been very different if I hadn’t had my family. I am no longer a child! But it’s as if we all live in the same village. Everyone talks to each other and everyone knows each other. I am very close to my father, my mother. It is obvious when you see us together.”
Along with tennis and football, Rafael also likes to play other games like golf and poker. In April of 2014, he even played the world’s No. 1 female poker player, Vanessa Selbst, in a poker game in Monaco.
