The smitten couple is set to get married next Autumn in the beautiful city of Mallorca, a part of the Balearic Islands located in the Meditteranean region of Spain and which is also the tennis star's hometown.

Rafael's wife-to-be, Mary - a 30-year-old insurance worker holding a business degree - rarely attends his games as she believes that it helps preserve their relationship.

In a post-match interview, he professed excitement in having Mary accompany him to Australia. Previously, in an interview with Hola, the 32-year-old asserted his intention to start a family.
