Rafael Nadal: Armani Underwear's New Face!

Rafael Nadal, the current number one tennis player in the world, will be trading in his tennis shorts for underwear as the new face of Emporio Armani Underwear!

The 24-year-old Spanish athlete will follow in the footsteps of soccer players David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, who both have modeled for Armani before.

Rafael‘s first campaign, which will also include the Armani Jeans collection, will launch this February.

    Best idea ever =)

  • Rafa fan

    I can’t wait. Rafa is classier than Beckham and Ronaldo combined.

    He’s not as cheesy as either, too.

  • Alex

    I don’t like Megan Fox in Armani campaign, prefer Irina Shayk.
    Megan is boring and too plastic, Irina is so HOT!
    Rafael Nadal is a good choice!

  • andres

    he does not have the body ….

  • andres

    yea, hes the number one tennis player, but he does not have the body thats needed to rock that underware

  • GOGO

    @Alex:

    Well, apparently Giorgio Armani fall in love with Megan Fox. And I think Megan will remove all the botox she got one day :)

  • tyry

    rafa will be awesome as was beckham

    ronaldo was awful

  • EKW

    just noticed that Giorgio always has celebrities to front his jeans/underwear lines…

  • nancy

    they got rid of ronaldo pretty quick

    i guess they didn’t like him

    cuz beckham was there for a couple years I think

  • Katie

    Rafa is so hot…such a good choice.
    Ronaldo looked terrible!!

  • laverdadduele

    Oh yeah! I’m drooling already. Rafa is hot. Latin guys are the sexiest and best lovers!

  • nete

    Beckams is handsome, but he is sooooo old!!!
    go Rafael!!!!!!

  • jean

    Ewwww???Really?I think its just a bit too trying hard of him!Sure hope that he can surpass Becham’s drawing power!If not, then i pity Armani!

  • dana

    @GOGO:

    lol….is this the best that they can do ???this looks bad!Goodluck Armani!Haha!

  • adela

    he has the body and the flair for GOOD jeans! He is PERFECT!

  • Danny

    As long as there are no skid marks on the underwear I’m cool. I mean, he picks his ass every serve!

  • Alie

    Vamos Rafa!!!!

  • Ellie

    I’m thrilled! He’s gorgeous … fights like a warrior … but is a true gentle man the rest of the time. And, contrary to the opinions of others here, there’s NOTHING wrong with his body!

  • Dasha

    Marat Safin is way hotter!!!

  • Ava

    bah no, his face and body do not fit for armani!

  • http://lmatch.net/ Angie Voit

    Has he had a taste of Paris

  • Emilly

    He’s UGLY!Armani should choose a better guy to publish their products…Not a hot guy and DEFINITELY NOT HANDSOME !!!!!!!!Prefer Beckham and Ronaldo…both are way hotter than this one

  • Deb2010

    He’s Sexy and Gorgeous!

  • Bryan

    @Angie Voit: Eh? You do know that he’s a tennis player right? And there are TWO big tennis tournaments every year in PARIS. One of which he’s won five times, so believe me, he’s been to Paris, a lot.

    Anyways, I have doubts about the underwear ads, can’t wait to see how those turn out. But he definitely has the butt for jeans, those should be AWESOME.

  • http://rafaholics.com Rafaholic

    Armani couldn’t have picked a better face for his ads. Rafa is total hotness! Cant wait for the pics!

  • missy

    How disappointing. Federer will always have more class than Nadal, and this just proves it again. Maybe Nadal should just give up tennis and become a stripper — he must be vain enough since he jumped onto this underwear deal. Mal aspecto, amigo.

  • theabroma

    @andres:

    Cher, if Rafa Nadal does NOT have the body, I’d like to know who you think does. Personally, I was hoping for Speedo as a sponsor (“Just wear a Speedo and a smile …”), but Armani jeans and skivvies will do just fine. I think it will be strictly a case of “Call an ambulance and send for the priest” effect.

  • Sue

    ARE YOU SERIOUS???? AHHHHH I CANT WAIT! LOVE LOVE LOVE RAFA!

  • Ana Antic

    THE BEST choice, great looking guy , great tennis player !

    @giovana: You have got to be blind OR insane, Roger Federer doesn’t even work out, he’s got the body of a 70 year old man. LOLOLOL maybe he could model adult diapers
