  1. Photoshop much? I love Rafa but they've done some serious photogenic sculpting of that jaw line. I'm not complaining, mind you. Just sayin. . .

  4. I wish another underwear designer would hire Djokovic as their model.

  6. Yikes! I think this guy is gorgeous, but these pics make him look weird.

  7. Terrible photos - he's a great-looking guy, and these are just bad. Weird lighting and way too much Photoshop.

    I think Steven Klein mustn't really like Rafa !

  8. Rafa is a great guy, but I was never into his looks. I like the Djokovic idea!!!

  10. Never got his appeal, i always thought he was a bit ugly.

  11. Nadal is a great player, but good looking he just AIN'T. Hence the photoshop. And even with it, he's just slighty average.

  12. he doesn't look right. what happened?

  13. I don't get these pics. Anyone can take a good pic from guy like RN. The second pic is so asexual. What did they do to the real RN?

  14. I have to agree; Rafael has a great body, but he has not been blessed with a face, and all his pouty posing only makes him look ridiculous. This isn't going to bring about a rush on Armini, because nobody wants to look like that. His manager should just forget about dubious "sex appeal" and encourage him to cultivate a public "personality," rather than a "look."

  15. I blame the photographer. Rafael is hot, these pictures are not.

  16. He's got the package of a Ken doll, wtf? haha

  17. UMM...some of the people commenting in this post are blind in one eye and can't see out of the other. RAFA is NOT ugly at all. These pics are photoshopped to hell and back. Get over yourselves please.

  18. I thought tennis players had fuzzy balls...

  19. The photographer is either straight or hates Nadal.

  20. No wonder muscular guys can't find interesting underwear/trunks in a size to fit them when the designers insist on using emaciated twinks as models and size their wares accordingly. ARe body builders and bears supposed to be satisfied with plain white briefs from WalMart?

    Posted by: RML | Aug 26, 2011 6:32:34 PM

  21. I think that Rafael needs a pair of socks, and not on his feet...

  22. We want Novak! We want Novak! We want Novak! We want Novak!
