Rafael Nadal has stacked up some impressive hardware during his amazing tennis career. Saturday, he'll add a new piece to his collection - a wedding ring.

Nadal, according to multiple reports, is set to marry his childhood sweetheart Maria Francisca Perello in Majorca, Spain on Saturday afternoon.

Nadal's wedding will take place at La Fortaleza and the guest list is reportedly 350 people. Unfortunately, Roger Federer, Nadal's rival, will not be in attendance.

The couple got engaged last May. They had dated for 14 years before Nadal popped the question.

Nadal, 33, is the second-most decorated male tennis player in history - behind Federer. He's won 19 Grand Slam singles titles - including the French Open a whopping 12 times.

Many believe that Nadal, who is five years younger than Federer, will eventually pass him on the all-time list. That remains to be seen.

Congratulations to the happy couple.
