World No 2 Rafael Nadal is making the most of his enforced coronavirus pandemic isolation - by scoring points with his new wife in the kitchen.

The 19-time Grand Slam winner - looking somewhat unshaven - took to social media on Tuesday to post pictures of him whipping up a culinary delight on the stove.

Nadal, 33, married long-time partner Xisca Perelló in October 2019.

Nadal, one Slam title shy of great rival Roger Federer's 20-mark, may have to wait until September to draw level after the French Open, originally scheduled for May, was postponed until later in the year due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Nadal is a 12-time winner in Paris.

In his post (translated into English from Spanish), Nadal wrote: "Today it's time to cook for my wife and I ... I hope you are all well and taking care of yourselves at home. Strength and lots of encouragement
