Reports from Marca also suggest Pique visited Stamford Bridge, where he purchased Chelsea shirts for his two sons.
Pique was keen not to be on the spotlight during his time in England, as he passed as just a regular fan recording Nadal during practice.
Afterwards, he afforded a short conversation with the tennis star.
From a business perspective, it was important for Pique to watch Nadal as the Barcelona star is the president of Kosmos that owns the rights to the Davis Cup (the tennis equivalent of the World Cup).
It was interesting to see Pique with his two sons as his visit to Wimbledon came amid rumours that he declined his ex partner Shakira’s attempts to have the children travel to the US.
Televisión Española's journalist Laura Fa, quoted on Marca, reported that Shakira wanted the ex-couple’s children, who are on school break, to spend two months in Florida, but Pique was not in agreement.
The pair recently announced their separation on social media, amid claims that Pique cheated on the Waka Waka hitmaker.
Last week, Barcelona president passionately defended Gerard Pique amid the player’s personal woes.
Laporta backed the player as he shed light on his current situation.
"Pique is suffering. As much as we imagine, we have in our imagination players with fame, money and everything we like, but they are people and Pique is a great person. Laporta said.
