Okayy... here's for all of you gossip lovers :devil: ... he has a girlfriend. His uncle admited it. I just read in in VamosRafael.com

Toni Nadal: "Rafa's Attached"
11/10/05

Rafa is in Shanghai preparing for the Masters Cup, which begins on Sunday. The news of the draw, and of his new haircut, are now overshadowed by even bigger news on our Messageboard: Rafa has a girlfriend.

Speaking to the Chinese press, Rafa's coach, Uncle Toni, explained, "He always said he’s single, to the media, also kept me in the dark. However, there’s nothing I wouldn’t know about this kid. He always thought this is a well-kept secret, actually his girlfriend’s waiting for him back in Mallorca.”

Toni stressed Rafa has not changed since winning Roland Garros. "He's still dating the same girl. His girlfriend’s a fellow Mallorcan, I guess they met long ago," said Toni, and added, "But I guess a lot of girls will be terribly upset after knowing the truth.”
In Shanghai news, Rafa is in the Gold Group, which also includes Agassi, Nikolay Davydenko and Gaston Gaudio. The Red Group includes Roger Federer, Guillermo Coria, Ivan Ljubicic and David Nalbandian. Rafa is scheduled to play Gaudio on Monday evening. They are 2-3, with Rafa winning their last two matches on clay this year.

He has started practicing with his good friend Tomeu Salva. Uncle Toni and his agent, Carlos Costa, also are in Shanghai, and more friends and family will be joining them this weekend. We, too, will be on the scene reporting live. Look for Susan's Shanghai Travel blog, starting Friday. More. . .

Wow- Ron.

Really nice to start insulting a teenaged girl. I know you like to call Rafa Piggy and I don't really mind that at all since we have a zoo of ducks, weasels, penguins (okay that's my own name for Agassi) - that’s one thing. But to start slagging on and insulting a girl sight unseen? I think that is pretty darned mean and could be seen as being rather hateful.

But at least Miss Piggy is cool-anyone who can combine her great grooming with mad karate skillz has it going on.

I don't get it.

Why is Rafa keeping all this supposed secrecy about a damn girlfriend? What does she have--the Da Vinci Code?

I have yet to figure out when Nadal himself or his people thought the world cared if he managed a girlfriend.

I see this here in Hollywood a lot. C-list actors ducking in and out of bistros thinking they are going to end up in US Weekly or the paparazzi is going to snap a picture, when, in reality, no one gives a damn about them...

Pathetic.

Why would he want to make everything about his life common knowledge? :shrug:

Besides, if she is "normal" and, by that I mean she isn't a celebrity or anything, then he could e doing the honourable thing in protecting her from the press etc. Nadal is a superstar and she would be dragged into the limelight with him.

I'm not saying he should make everything in his life common knowledge, for fuck's sake--but, I mean come on. The only thing she will have to endure is a couple of cameras pointed at her during his matches. Nadal is a tennis player, he's not Brad Pitt. I'm not saying he has to say her full name or drag her to all his exhibitions and promotions. Leave her ass at home, see if I care. :rolleyes: But pretending your single when your, "a superstar," does you no good now does it? The press now knows. Did it get him anywhere? What harm would it have done to say, "yeah, I date. I'm seeing someone now, what's it to ya?" We probably still wouldn't have known who she was, and that's great. But it was just a matter of time. All were waiting for now is one of those big mouths from Spain to snap a picture and it's game over--but that won't happen, you see, because as big of, "a superstar," he may be, he doesn't warrant such attention. Mary Kate Olsen doesn't either, but that's a different story for a different time. :lol: :lol: :lol:

He is actually a huge star in Spain. They always have snippets of him on TV going to and from the airport, and at the MC one channel even sent a TV crew to follow him 24-7 at the Master's Cup (Nadal doesn't seem to like it that much as they are following him to even his hotel room, etc.) So the girlfriend could have to endure more than just a couple of pictures taken of her at matches.

If you ever read his interviews, he does not seem to be big headed at all, and actually seems to be really down to earth. But he does like to keep his private life private. I don't think he was trying to "get anywhere" by not talking about his private life.) And when I was in college around Nadal's age I used to keep mum about a couple of my relationships to my parents. Not because I thought I was a superstar or was bigheaded. But just because I wanted to keep my relationship between me and my boyfriend without my folks pestering me with questions or my mom always telling me to "be safe!" :lol:

I see where your coming from. But I will say this--if he is as big of a star in Spain as you say, and I, for all aspects believe you, he would be quite stupid to think that he could keep this chick secret forever. Just because you, "like" to keep your private life, PRIVATE, doesn't mean it WILL be private--this is certain if your a, "superstar" in Spain--or anywhere else for that matter. But it wasn't the press who outed the girlfriend--apparently the Uncle did. So if this blows completely out of proportion, which I don't think it will--look at who were dealing with here, then Nadal knows who to blame.

Great Reply, Clara.

Did he expressly represent that he was single and didn't have a girlfriend? Unless he did that then he isn't guilty of anything, and I admire his ability to keep certain things well under wraps ;)

Besides, Rafa is not exactly getting the thrill of a challenge on court, at least not on a clay court.

I guess maybe he gets a more thrilling challenge in his bedroom, and doesn't want to let on to anyone that maybe he has met his match :lol:

i cannot imagine toni saying stuff like this before a big tournament, knowing the stir it would cause.

the asian media is notorious for inventing gossip and blowing things out of proportion, especially when it comes to girlfriends.

He's a young, super-star, grand slam winning tennis player with money, fame and girls at his fingertips. I would be shocked to hear he doesn't have a girlfriend.

You are a stinker trying to start rumors, aren't ya. :p

He did not have his arm around Tomeu Salva (his childhood friend from Mallorca who is also a tennis player and is his sparring partner). He had his arm on the railing behind their chairs. That is not quite the same. ;) My husband does that as well when we are at baseball games, etc. and will put his arm on the railing if we are at the end of a section, regardless of who is sitting next to him (male or female)- he is just a loungey fellow.
