Tennis hunks

(Not about language.)

Having gotten off onto shirtless abs-displaying hunks in acting and modeling (Kellan Lutz, Josh Duhamel, Taylor Lautner), I pulled up shirtless tennis hunks, including two recent favorites and perennial rivals, with different body types: the very muscular Rafael Nadal and the very lean Novak Djokovic. Both wonderful to watch in play, each in his own way. Paired shirtless shots of Rafa and Djoker:

(#1 Rafa)

(#2 Djoker)

The Wikipedia articles are tremendously heavy on tennis history. The minimal stories:

Rafael “Rafa” Nadal Parera (… born 3 June 1986) is a Spanish professional tennis player and a former world No. 1… His success on clay has earned him the nickname “King of Clay” and has led many sports journalists and commentators, as well as former and current players, to regard him as the greatest clay court player in history.

Novak Djokovic (… born 22 May 1987) is a Serbian professional tennis player… He is considered to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time. (link)

Both men are proud of their bodies and happy to exhibit them, Rafa perhaps more than Djoker. Steamy photos of Rafa, front and rear:



And (in less carefully posed photos) Djoker flashing his torso and sporting a notable moose knuckle:



On to the court!

    #6 is more than just a “moose knuckle” to my mind; I’d say that the idea of tennis — or whatever he’s about to be up to — really, um, interests him.

    Wow! I missed this first time around. Of course Djokovic is just about my favorite tennis player of all time (and I’m not a johnny-come-lately, previous favorites Boris Becker & Andy Roddick). Thanks for #6!
