Nadal's parents back together

Report: Nadal's parents back together
Ticker - Wednesday, June 22, 2011

According to Tennis Canada website lovemeansnothing.ca, which cites an "impeccable source," Rafael Nadal's parents, Ana Maria and Sebastian, have reunited. The two divorced prior to the 2009 French Open but were spotted next to each other in the Royal Box for Rafa's first-round match Monday, a straight-sets win over Michael Russell.

Re: Nadal's parents back together

watching one of their son's matches at the same box isn't being "back together".

If you read it carefully you'll see that they quote a reliable source for saying they're back together, them sitting at the royal box is just an anecdote... but who knows, it could be false.

Re: Nadal's parents back together

some website called "lovemeansnothing.ca" refers to "a reliable source"... doesn't seem very credible if you ask me.

That's the Tennis Canada site.

I dunno. I've seen this story picked up by other news organizations. We'll see if it's really true.

Re: Nadal's parents back together

I hope so

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Report: Rafael Nadal’s parents are back together after separation

By Chris Chase


A report on the official website of Tennis Canada says Rafael Nadal's parents, Ana Maria and Sebastian, have reunited after separating two years ago. Ordinarily, this sort of thing wouldn't merit mention, except that Nadal has admitted that the family trouble played a big role in his struggles on the court in 2009.

Nadal's stunning loss to Robin Soderling at the French Open that year, still his only defeat at the tournament, came in the weeks after his parents announced their separation. At the time, a source told London's Daily Mail:

'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.

Tennis.com's Peter Bodo speculated about what it meant:

"The rumors that Nadal's parents are about to divorce keep popping up in the gutter press and in my inbox via emails from acquaintances and sources, and I bring it up for this reason only: there's a parallel to be drawn between how domestic turmoil might affect an obedient son who's never questioned the impermeability of the familial cocoon, and how losing dominion over a patch of earth where he has known only spectacular success might affect a young and still not fully formed tennis player."

And later in the year, Nadal reflected on how the divorce affected him:

"My parents' divorce made an important change in my life. It affected me. After that, when I can't play Wimbledon, it was tough. For one month I was outside the world."

"I am OK now but you need time to accept. And it's more difficult to accept when you are outside home and don't know what's happening. At least the injury gave me time to be with my friends and family."

"I played with less calm [at Roland Garros]. One of the reasons was the pain in the knees. And I was down because of the divorce. Soderling played really well and he beat me. But I wasn't ready, mentally or physically, this year."

After his first-round victory on Monday, Nadal spoke about his parents being in attendance (without confirming or denying the rumors and possibly making it seem like he was talking about their seats):

"Too many beautiful things to see my mom and my dad in the Royal Box. I think for them (it) was a great experience. So, everything in general was very, very nice today."

Nice.

rafa nadal's motto: stay humble, stay hungry

(Each athlete has a bio with their picture, and Rafa's mentions last year's Roland Garros, Wimbledon, US Open and this year's Roland Garros. Seems to be covering June 2010 to June 2011)
