Spanish men are handsome and what better example of this than our very own tennis champion Rafael Nadal. The world No. 2 player, who was born in the Manacor, Balearic Islands, Spain, is known to get hearts racing with his enigmatic smile and charming personality. But do you know what we absolutely cannot ignore? Nadal’s chiselled body that screams H-O-T even in the dull and gloomy European winter.
Nadal’s popularity has only increased with his wins and even though his game has hundreds of fans, there are many who simply watch tennis to watch the tennis player in his element. Guilty as charged.
Clearly, we are fans and we’ve been stalking the sportsman on social media just to get a good glimpse of him. And while we were quite pleased with what we saw, we thought of doing some social service and sharing the joy. If you are Nadal fan too, scroll down to see more.
1. Just look at that gorgeous smile tugging at our hearts.
2. Seriously having trouble deciding which one is better – the gorgeous blue sea or Rafael’s chiselled bod. I think we’ll go with the later.
3. Then there’s this picture of the big boy with his old man and we are just amazed. Those dimples though!
4. Rafael just sitting down and relaxing after a gruelling practice session is all of us after a hectic workday. So real and relatable. But then again that half smile kind of made all the difference.
5. The sports star casually cooking his meal and showing it off to his 6.1 million followers on Instagram. No sweat really. Just casual cooking and making us take-out fans feel a little bit ashamed maybe.
6. Rafael posing against a red wall in white tennis clothes is like Christmas coming early albeit with a big grin! *We love*
P.S: This was during the US open series in Toronto earlier this year, which obviously Rafael won.
7. The man in action is like a Spanish God at work – Know it all, do it all! The dominance on the field is oh so admirable we can’t take our eyes off him!
8. Rafael being touristy in Paris with long-time girlfriend Xisca Perelló reminds us of his humility even as a sports sensation and commitment towards his lady love. Now, that’s something we look up to.
9. The 32-year-old giggling like a 20-year-old will brighten up anyone’s day. ANYONE. Enough said!
10. Rafael meeting fans graciously proves how much he respects the admiration and makes us crush on him some more.
11. And finally, Rafael holding onto his trophy and never letting go is all of us secretly wishing it was us with Rafael in our arms. Also, don’t miss that chiselled, topless body! Oh… if only all wishes would come true!
