Former world number one, Rafael Nadal, has revealed why he has no kids of his own just like some of his colleagues.
Nadal is in a committed relationship but is yet to tie the knot or start a family. However, this is the case not because he doesn’t want to nor is it because he doesn’t like children, but because he does not think he can give his kids enough time as his “sporting life” takes up most of the year.
“I would love to have children — boys, girls — I’m a person who loves kids and I’m a family guy,” Nadal said.
“But also I tell you that the reality is the years keep passing. I would like to start to do all of this when my sporting life determines it.
“I think it’s also above all about looking after the kids. I don’t know if it (traveling the whole year round and playing tennis) is ideal,” the 31-year-old added.
