Not long ago, Nadal had spoken to the British newspaper Sun about children: “I would like to have them: boys and girls. But I also tell you that the reality is that the years continue to pass, I would like to start doing all this when my life sport will allow me. I don’t know if traveling all year and having children is ideal. If children come, there will be a change. It’s something that will probably happen in the future because we both want it. ” (HANDLE).
