Why is Xisca often absent from Nadal’s tennis matches?

In one of her only interviews, Xisca Perello revealed that she chooses not to attend most of Nadal’s tennis matches in a bid to preserve their relationship.

She added that she is concerned she would disrupt her fellow Spaniard’s focus if she appeared at all events.

In an interview with The Telegraph in 2011, Xisca explained: “He needs his space when he is competing, and just the idea of me hanging around and waiting on his needs all day tires me out.

“It would asphyxiate me. And then he would have to be worrying about me… No. If I followed him everywhere, I think there’s a risk we might stop getting along.”

However, she was a more frequent visitor at the 2020 Australian Open, and watched all of Nadal’s four-set win over Nick Kyrgios.
