Obviously, I have the intention of forming a family. I love children and I would like my children to do what they like." It has already been a busy year for Rafael, who recently came second place at the 2019 Australian Open. Although the famed tennis player advanced to the final without losing a set, he lost in the finale against Novak Djokovic.

Speaking about the loss, he told reporters: "What I need is time, I need work and I need more weeks like this one. That’s really the only thing that I hope, is to have the chance to keep practising well and to have the chance to keep playing with health conditions. I can’t be sad. It would not be fair to be sad. I played against a player that today was better than me."

The 32-year-old has kept his relationship under the wraps for a long time. He is an avid tweeter, and recently sent his best wishes to Andy Murray after he announced his retirement from tennis.
