If you haven't read this anywhere yet, a series of sizzling new Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans ads, featuring Rafael Nadal (and Megan Fox), were revealed last Thursday.
Is this really Nadal? While it's impressive, I think David Beckham flaunts it better... I prefer a 'raw' version rather than this heavily photoshopped photo.
Here's another one... Nadal the Superman!
The campaign, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, will start popping up on billboards next month as part of the fashion house's Spring 2011 campaign.
According to Roberta Armani, the niece of Giorgio Armani said: "He (Nadal) always chose interesting clothes for tennis, like long trousers or long sleeves on court - he wears a lot of colour.""He is not just an amazing sportsman but also an artist. I'm so proud he is joining the family," she added.
Here are some pictures from behind the scene:
Take off that bath robes...
To me, Nadal's decision to accept the campaign doesn't come off as a surprise because even though he is well known for his shy and reserved attitude, he has appeared in many sexy mag covers and hot music video with Shakira.
To move to an on court news at the Australian Open, Nadal will play against Marin Cilic in the fourth round today.
There's a little bit of concern over Nadal's fitness as he is still not over a virus-type illness which he developed on the way to Australia. He was having problem with excessive sweating during the match against Bernard Tomic in the third round.
