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.”

ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. he is hideous.

he really does look like the geico caveman.

NOOOO
FERNANDO GONZALEZ ‘s(L) rafael nadal strongest rival!
I mean….nadal is better than him but FERNANDO IS HOTTER AND ALMOST WON FOR CHILE!! GO CHILE :D HE WON THE SILVER FINALLY.

For those wondering why Nadal is on the cover of this magazine and not Phelps- it is because the article is for New York magazine and in preparation of the US Open- which will start in a week.

While Nadal does not really photograph well (imo) and does not look his best on the court, having seen him in person I think he is quite attractive and has a very notable presence. He has an interesting look about him. His cheekbones are more pronounced in real life and, conversely, his brow is not as pronounced as it appears i pictures. He actually has an interesting cat-like look about him which is surprisingly very appealing. Plus- he really has a glorious smile.

And as others have said- he is a real sweetie.

Spain has 3 gold metals for the moment in these Olympic Games, one of them from Nadal.

Please change the wrong information!

Viva España!
Viva Nadal!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so I don’t see the point in whining about others finding something or somebody ugly or beautiful and even less so insulting people in who find somebody attractive. Jealous much?

I saw Rafa in real life and his pictures don’t do him justice. He may not have perfect good looks but he does have a certain quality about him. Charisma.
He has a gorgeous smile for starters and he seems to be a very friendly and nice man.

Good choice as a cover!

The caveman comments in here: rather lame, don’t you think?
Is he not WASP enough for you perhaps?

Nadal is the best!!!!! xdxd

numero 1 ole ole y ole!!!!!!!!!!

:):):)

are you kidding?
Spain have today 3 gold medals in Beijing Olympic Games (and wait for more!), not the first Spanish who won a gold medal at an Olympic Game!
and Roger Federer lost at quarter finals… Rafael Nadal played the final vs. Fernando Gonzalez, from Chile!
Please, read more!
Please watch tv!
Please listen to radio!
Please search on internet!

Oh Yeah! Vamos Rafa!!!!!

who cares which one is uglier than the other??? it’s not a beauty contest…they’re sportsmen and should be judged by that…

hes so ugly .. he looks like a monkey
GO ROGER FERERER <33

Rafael i love you. I watch wimbledon and i was so happy when he won. Spanish men are so sexy. :D xx

My God what am I reading here! Nadal, ugly? I think most of the people who wrote those comments are either jealous men or have seen Nadal only a couple of times verrrry far from the tv. Now look at these pics:

If he’s not handsome then who is? And for those who say girls like only his body, they are not pics of his body or muscles at all. He is very handsome and everybody knows that. They have even written articles abt him being a great player and good-looking too. You may like him or not but please be objective.
I don’t like Federer but I’m not saying he isn’t handsome coz objectively he is, though I’m not attracted too him at all
Of course the way they play remains the most imp thing abt them

that made my day, thanks jared!

Hot and Beautiful

What was it that Joe Dallesandro used to say when asked if he thought that Mick Jagger looked good? “I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers.” I’m certain that both Nadal and Phelps can be more selective than most of the people who want to comment on their looks.

Rafa looks great and If I were him I wouldn’t give a flying toaster about all the guys who think he looks ugly. Plenty of women drool over him and he’s on top of the world now. Plus he’s a truly nice guy and excellent role model. Vamos Rafa!!!

He may not be dreadfully ugly, but rafael nadal is certainly not good-looking. Actually looks very rat-like. Also, the fact that he routinely picks his ass on court (it’s true, pay attention next time) doesn’t help. But of course, now everybody thinks he’s gorgeous, because, once again, the masses have been spoon-fed.

gorgeoussssssss.
he’s like perfect. hahah.

and he’s an amazing tennis player.
:)
