Rafael Nadal is now part of ESPN’s popular “This is Sportscenter” ad campaign which features the greatest stars in sports playing themselves in often hilarious skits at the network’s headquarters.

Before his US Open title run, Nadal visited the Bristol campus to film two new spots.

From an ESPN release:

During the 30-second ad, named “Candy Dish,” SportsCenter anchors John Anderson and Bram Weinstein speculate about what makes the Spanish player so popular in the office. Turns out Nadal’s exotic accent, great tan and dashing looks are not necessarily what is driving all the foot traffic to his cube. It might instead have something to do with what he keeps in the US Open Trophy on his desk. ESPN Deportes’ SportsCenter anchors Alvaro Morales, Jorge Eduardo Sánchez and Carolina Padrón appear in the Spanish-language version.

Here’s the U.S. version:

Here’s the Desportes version:

How does Rafa’s compare to the one Roger Federer shot in 2008?
