Ah, the awful life of being Rafael Nadal. Nadal might not be No. 1 but the Spaniard is still getting it done off the court. The latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue features Nadal with his hands all over Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli. And can you blame him? Absolutely not.
Nadal and Refaeli, the 2009 cover girl, are part of a model-athlete section in the new issue which hits newsstands on Tuesday, aka Valentine’s Day.
Andy Roddick’s wife and 2011 cover babe Brooklyn Decker is not in the issue this year.
Nadal and the 26-year-old Refaeli have “hooked up” before in 2010 at the US Open.
“I’m so happy he’s doing it,” Refaeli said. “Love Rafael. I Love tennis. I think he can be a great be a great model.”
Said Nadal, “It was a new experience for me, I enjoyed it a lot.”
