Rafael Nadal Slams Reporter for 'Bullsh-t' Question Over If His Marriage Is a Distraction to Tennis

Rafael Nadal suffered a devastating loss at the ATP Finals to Alexander Zverev on Monday (November 11), and he lost his cool at his post-match press conference.

Rafael, who is ranked number one in the world, was married to his longtime love Xisca Perello on October 12. A reporter at the post-game press conference suggested that perhaps his marriage caused him to become distracted.

“Honestly, are you asking me this?” Rafael responded upon hearing the question. “Is this a serious question or is it a joke?

“It’s a big surprise you’re asking me this after being with the same girl for 15 years, having a very stable and normal life. It doesn’t matter if you put a ring on your finger or not,” he continued.

“How many years have you been with your (partner)?” Rafael asked the reporter.

Rafael concluded the line of questioning by calling the question “bullsh*t.”
