Rafael Nadal spent a relaxing day on the beach in Cozumel, Mexico with girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello on February 23rd, 2013, taking time out from matches at the Mexican Open. The 26-year-old tennis star showed off his shirtless ab-tastic body while walking along with his childhood sweetheart. He wore a pair of sky blue swimming trunks with his mop of brown hair slicked back after a dip in the water. Meanwhile, Maria Francisca flaunted her beach-ready figure in a strapless olive green bikini, looking happy and relaxed in the sun. Later in the day, the beauty changed into an eye-catching pink string bikini, wandering around with a loose-fitting white T-shirt and a pair of short denim shorts thrown over the top. The long-term couple spent much time lounging around on the white sands with their arms wrapped around each other, treating themselves to an indulgent break. They were also spotted getting massages, riding wave runners, and kissing in the sunshine. Rafael Nadal recently marked his return to pro tennis after taking seven months off for a knee injury by defeating David Ferrer to win this year’s Mexican Open.
