Rafael Nadal is Shirtless

Rafael Nadal is Shirtless

Spain’s Rafael Nadal takes the Fall Fashion 2008 cover of NY Magazine wearing next to nothing. Great fashion!

On Sunday, the 22-year-old tennis champ swept past Roger Federer to seize the world No. 1 tennis ranking. The Beijing gold medalist also became the only Spaniard to win a gold medal at the Olympics Games.

“For the sportsman, the Olympic Games are more important than anything,” he said. “Nowhere in my best dreams I can imagine something like what I did this year. I am playing an unbelievable season, no doubt. The feeling for sure is very happy for being No. 1, but the feeling doesn’t change too much because the last years I did very well, too.”

To see the shirtless slideshow of Nadal‘s latest photoshoot, visit NYMag.com.

    Phelps and Rafa actually admire each other and have offered their respective congratulations for each of their triumphs in this summer’s games. And Michael said in a presser that he really enjoys watching Rafa play. Oh and both have rockin’ bods that deserve to be on magazine covers. *droolage being wiped here*

    are something that rafa dont win this year??¿?…i think NOT!

  • Prt

    It’s not true that Nadal is the only Spaniard to win a gold medal at this Olympics Games.

    Until the moment Spain has gotten three gold medals: Samuel Sánchez in cycling in the category of road race; Joan Llaneras in cycling in the category of points race and Nadal on tennis.

  • dixex

    I want Iker casillass! I love Rafael, amazing player

  • lori

    all I can say is “wowser, wowser!!” Who would keep complaining about Phelps not being on the cover? Well, Phelps looks okay if his ears are hid and his mouth is kept shut (sorry to be mean, but besides a great physique, Phelps is no cover boy)…Rafa is not the most gorgeous athlete, but the man wins me over with those arms, stomach and smile…he’s such a sweet guy…how can you not appreciate his accomplishments on the court and his humble personality off? There is nothing gay about these pics…he looks hot!!

    :P I LOVE NADAL!

  • jessie

    his close up picture looks like one of the cavemen from the geico commercials.

  • naty

    #8 phelp has the ugliest face I have ever seen, and nadal I don’t know if is it me but he reminds me of goofy. I think that is his face.

  • Gallego

    #25 do us a favour , learn to write , please.

    And they are right , Rafa is the only Spaniard to win a gold medal at the Olympics Games IN TENNIS. In Tennis Spaniards have only silver or bronze.

    By the way , Phelps has more covers than Rafa , so… what’s the problem? Rafa is the new #1 at ATP Rankings , he deserved a cover.

    Congratulations , Rafa!

  • Layla

    I love Rafa. The jealous dudes on the board are just that: jealous. PRT, I don’t think the article means he’s the first Spaniard to win gold, just that he’s the first Spaniard to win gold in Tennis.

    Phelps is weird-looking. He looks overgrown or something. His features are exaggerated to the point where they look deformed.

  • sweeny

    ugly

  • http://www.kwanzoo.com Supernetuser

    Nadal is a great tennis player, and Phelps is a great swimmer who has 8 Olympic gold medals. That probably matters more than looks because they achieved something that the people who call them both ugly on this board will never achieve in their lives, which is a gold medal or anything else for that matter.

  • N

    I think what justjared meant is that Nadal won the only gold medal in tenis

  • lova girl

    so hot !!!! just awesome !!!!
    I love him <3

  • Gracie

    I love this guy. And to who said ‘whoever fancies him must be ugly’ – get a clue. Loads of ‘ugly’ guys score beautiful women, it’s called TASTE. Not everyone finds the same people attractive, thank god.

    Plus this guy isn’t even ugly. He’s an adorable person inside and out.

  • malita

    omg.. between him and michael phelps i cant choose the fuglier one.

  • Go

    “The Beijing gold medalist also became the only Spaniard to win a gold medal at the Olympics Games.”

    False

  • scottdavis0676

    Regardless of how you assess Rafa’s appearance, he and his uncle are class incarnate. Never will you hear them utter a profane word about anyone. Their comments are always fair and uplifting. Rafa has paid his dues for a LONG TIME and deserves to be number one! I am more of a Federer fan myself, but I appreciate his greatness and vigor. He is a great ambassador for the game with his winsome smile and self-effacing demeanor. Congrats Rafa on your banner year! Phelps is talented no doubt, but to me, he looks like he has down syndrome. Rafa is much better looking IMO.

  • dannyc

    scottdavis0676

    you said it succintly. thanks.

  • naty

    i agree with you valerie
    i love fernando gonzalez!!!

  • Cachuli
  • Halli

    Tennis fan here. Roger Federer is the hotness to me. But some like Nadal, I think they’re blinded by his biceps (which is rare to find in tennis players, but is still nothing special).

    I sometimes think that girls who find Nadal good looking must be sex starved or something. The boy has a good body, but he isn’t good looking. I mean, let’s be real here. His head is also really small for his body.

  • Fernando

    Disgusting guy. His left arm is so much stronger than the right one. He looks like Mogli the cartoon. Women are so sick.

  • Gi.Kodaly

    If you guys really think that the guy’s ugly than why comment in his post?? Get a life! Go say that someone is hot, not ugly, it will only bring bad things to yourself!
    And I BET that these people that are saying that he’s ugly must be fugliest thing!

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com/2008/08/18/rafael-nadal-shirtless/#comments elle

    MORE RAFA PLEASE!!!!!!!

  • shut up

    Gi.Kodaly or whatever you call yourself – that’s what this site is for, to post whatever the f*ck you feel like – good or bad – get over it.
