Male Gaze: Rafael Nadal When He’s Off the Court

122205365TH026_RAFAEL_NADAL

When Rafael Nadal prowls onto a tennis court with his wavy locks held back by his special Nike bandanas, he transforms into a tennis beast. His enormous muscles are on display, and he snarls, roars, and never fails to surprise viewers with his face contortions. But before Rafa heads into Wimbledon and shines in all of his sweat-drenched tennis glory, we wanted to take a moment to focus on off-court Rafa — the softer side to the athlete who once modeled for Armani. How can your heart not melt? He also eats tennis-ball-shaped objects for dessert. Please note the suggestive caption.
