Rafael Nadal poses with supermodel Bar Refaeli in sexy new Sports Illustrated shoot
Ladies, feast your eyes on this! In the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, tennis champion and Spanish stud, Rafael Nadal, strikes a seductive pose alongside Israeli model Bar Refaeli.
In a series of about 10 photos, Nadal, wearing just swimming trunks, holds Refaeli while she lies in front of him in a revealing bra and underwear set. Another image shows the model covering her exposed breasts with her arms while Nadal embraces her.
The shoot was part of a special edition photo collection called “Bar and the Boys,” in which the supermodel also poses with swimmer Michael Phelps and basketball player Chris Paul. Other Olympian athletes spotlighted in the same issue included swimming star Natalie Coughlin and soccer idol Alex Morgan.
Refaeli told Sports Illustrated that she was thrilled to have to the chance to pose with Nadal and that the tennis pro made a great model. In response, Nadal said that though the type of shoot was a “new experience” for him, he “enjoyed it a lot."
And this isn’t the only reason Nadal is making headlines! Besides being featured in the magazine, he was recently honored by the Prime Minister of Spain, Mariano Rajoy, for his athletic efforts.

Sounds like a busy guy! I’m happy to see that Latinos were represented in the magazine, although I wish that they had included more since there are so many great Hispanic athletes. Still, it’s great that he’s representing the community… and looking good while doing it!
What do you think of the photo shoot?
