Rafa nadal dating shakira

10 Oct

Let us have a look at the beginning of their love affair.

Most of us would remember the Waka Waka song which aired during the 2010 Football World Cup in Africa. Shakira and Pique met during the filming of this video and the two apparently hit off instantly.

Shakira watched Nadal beat Nikolay Davydenko in Abu Dhabi in December 2008 after doing a concert there.

They also cozied up last March when she watched him qualify for the fourth round of the Miami Master Series.

Shakira earlier this month celebrated her 33rd birthday with longtime fiancé Antonio De La Rua, while Nadal has been dating high school sweetheart Maria Francisca Perello, aka Xisca, for nearly four years.

An eyewitness told us of the Barcelona encounter, “There was just the two of them at the table together. It definitely looked like they are more than just friends.

His allure owes much, of course, to his muscled 6'1" physique, inscrut­ably inky eyes, and artic­ulated cheekbones.

I mention this by way of saying that Nadal, at 24, is not simply the top tennis ­player in the world and, ­according to a ­recent poll, the most ­admired man in Spain by an overwhelming margin; he is also that rare, delectable hybrid, the sports icon as international rock star—a role similarly ­occupied by Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham, the soccer greats whom Nadal has just succeeded as the face and body of Emporio Armani underwear.

Recently, there were seen together in Festa De L'esport Català 2016 awards in Barcelona, where Shakira was together with her partner, as he was presented with the Best Catalan Sportsperson award.

It The story of how these two met and fell in love is also something very interesting.

Several gossip magazines published photographs of the couple holding hands together and kissing in Barcelona.

Talking with Rafael Nadal, I once reached out and touched his arm.
