The world's top tennis player, known for his bulging biceps and chiselled torso, has attracted camera flashes and wolf-whistles at the Australian Open where he regularly peels off his sweat-drenched shirts during changeovers.
"No, I feel fantastic," Nadal smiled when asked if girls screaming their undying love for him puts him off his game. Nadal blushed when asked about the moody black-and-white promotional photos which show him posing in his briefs sweeping back his hair and flexing his muscles. "It was a good experience," Nadal, who recently signed a lucrative deal with Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani jeans, said.
"It's always nice to know different worlds," he added, warming to the subject. "The fashion world is something that I didn't know before. It was a good photo session, a long one."
Asked by a female reporter if he thought his pictures were sexy, Nadal teased: "I'm not the right person to say. I always watch myself so-so. But what do you think? Do you like it?" Given an affirmative answer, Nadal flirted: "I’m happy if you like it!"
