She is sometimes seen sitted courtside at Nadal’s matches. In an interview she explained that it was an understanding they had come to as a couple. She went on to say that there is the risk of falling out should she follow him around everywhere.

“It's [the celebrity world] not a world I want to be part of, nor do I think Rafa would have chosen to be with a woman who looked for that in life," she said referring to the fact that she hardly attends events with her fiancé.
