Some of the replies on this thread are depressingly familiar. No wonder half the planet is on the downlow, you're not SUPPOSED to spot it if you're only ever looking for guys that go shopping 24/7, hang out with interior decorators or are photographed with their mothers and toy poodles. My feeling is that he's simply shy almost bordering on autism (and this is not meant in any negative sense) and completely focused on tennis.No male gay tennis players (bullshit), he doesn't "ping" so he can't be gay (bullshit), he likes straight things so he must be straight (bullshit! God forbid a gay man might like playing football or attending a bike rally with a group of friends, fixing his car or camping, etc. There were some rumours of him and Ana Ivanovic having a fling.She has a naturally chubby face even when she's slimmer.All the big tennis pros have agents who handle their publicity.Every male that steps onto a tennis court has a huge gay following.Nadal and his family have a big compound in Mallorca.I think it is the only sport where 100% of the male players are straight.However it also read that at least 60% of female players are out lesbians.
Nadal does seem straight to me, but Anna Wintour's best bud, Fed, is creeping up on my gay suspect list. I think the speculation is becausue there is really no proof of heterosexuality either - never had a girlfriend and is really religious thus has an excuse not to have a girlfriend because he wants to be "pure."He may have a girlfriend now, I don't know.That actually makes a lot of sense to me, and has the ring of truth to it. That's what the girlfriends do, they just sit there. Very few gay men in professional tennis, although there are supposed to be a few according to an article in Tennis Magazine several years ago. European sports stars are not like American sports stars.Nadal is in an extremely close-knit family and it really seems right that he would gravitate toward an old childhood friend whom he has known for years. I think the gays ones were Jan Michael Gambill (sp? It has only been recent that many of them have gotten on the American public's radar. He loves too much typical straight stuff, even for a Spaniard. And they are all friends."European sports stars are not like American sports stars.It seems like a very insular place(no not imbred) and the girlfriend lives there. As the article states he says he doesnt have a girlfriend, but he does.Seriously, it is hard to get a woman to hang out with you all year on tour. Enough of a tennis nerd to post often on tennis message boards.I'm guessing he's incredibly sexually repressed with a small dick so isn't acting either way.But, plenty of rich guys with small dicks get pussy, so that really shouldn't be a problem.It has only been recent that many of them have gotten on the American public's radar."Boris Becker was better known in America than either Fed or Nadal.That may change if they have more thrilling finals.But there is no superstar girlfriend hogging the headlines.His partner, 20-year-old Francisca Perello, declines the chance to travel the world to support her fella, instead staying in Manacor to complete a business and administration degree.
