Xisca Perelló Bio (Age)
Xisca Perelló was born as Maria Francisca Perello on July 7, 1988, in Palma De Majorca. Instead of her real name, she has always been addressed by the nickname ‘Xisca’ from the time she was young. Because her parents usually worked long hours, she was left to stay all by herself growing up and this taught her to be fiercely independent.
For her higher education, Xisca Perelló enrolled into the University of the Balearic Islands in Palma, the island of Majorca, in 2006. There, she studied Administration and Business Management and graduated in 2010 with distinction. Afterward, she got a job in IMG, Barcelona Area, Spain, in September 2010 and was responsible for the organization of sporting events. By December of the same year, she left the company.
Moving on, Xisca Perelló got another job in February 2011 as an area Assistant manager in MAPFRE, a sports company which also endorsed her tennis-player-boyfriend Rafael Nadal. Sadly, her decision to work in the company turned out to be a bad one as she was faced with a lot of hostility from her co-workers who believed that she got the job because of her relationship with Rafael Nadal.
Unable to stomach the negative vibes coming from her colleagues, Xisca quit the job in August 2011 and landed another one two months later in London, United Kingdom, in an insurance company named Mapfre Assistance. She worked there for six months in the business development department quitting to join Rafael Nadal Foundation in Barcelona, in April 2012. She serves as the foundation’s project director to date and in addition to managing its daily activities, Xisca Perelló is also heavily involved in reaching out to communities and youths in need.
The Spanish beauty is the daughter of Bernat Perelló and María Pascual. Because she does not want to be a part of the celebrity world, she has kept much information about her family away from the public. Consequently, nothing is known about her parents beyond their names and it is also not known whether she has any siblings or not.

Her Recipe For A Healthy Relationship With Her Partner
Speaking with The Telegraph about her relationship with the tennis champion back in 2011, Xisca Perelló indirectly revealed that the secret of their long-term romance was being able to give him space. According to her, traveling together with the tennis star everywhere, even if she could, would not be a good idea for both of them because he needs space when he is competing.

She Doesn’t Want To Be A Part Of The Celebrity World
