Bad times for Rafael Nadal. Not only did he lose his first match ever at the French Open, he also couldn't defend his Wimbledon title, as he was forced to withdraw with an ongoing knee injury, bu none of this might hurt Nadal as much as this one - his parents are getting a divorce.

The rumour about his parents' divorce was flying around in the media for some time already, but now Sebastian and Ana Maria made it official.

Rafa's parents

“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. Now he has returned home and is catching up with his family. He talked about resetting his body after withdrawing from the championships and yet he has a more difficult task.” - said a source close to Nadal's camp.

Take Cara, Rafa!
