When Rafael met Refaeli: Rafael Nadal in Sports Illustrated
I bet you have already seen the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, featuring world No. 2 Rafael Nadal, supermodel Bar Refaeli, as well as LA Clippers guard Chris Paul, and Olympic Swimming Champion Michael Phelps, but here are some more pics.
I really felt the chemistry between Bar Refaeli and Michael Phelps, and that between her and Chris Paul, but when I saw the pics of the Spaniard 10-times Grand Slam champion, I felt the opposite way.
Maybe it’s just for me, but Rafa is a bit too glossy and not natural in these photos. Nadal is very handsome man, but it’s not the first shoot where I clearly see that he is just not into these “sexual” pics, whereas he looks absolutely gorgeous when shooted imitating playing tennis.
