It is only fitting that the world's current best tennis player -- who also happens to be hot, young and Latin -- has signed on to be Armani's next sexy billboard sensation. Outstanding tennis champion and "it" boy Rafael Nadal has been announced as the latest sportsmodel for Emporio Armani Mens Underwear and Armani Jeans.

A Spanish-born, 6'1" Rafa is adorned with a body that's lean and tan enough to hit a grand slam amongst loyal Armani Underwear fans. The youngest player to hold a streak of winning 24 consecutive matches, as well as multiple wins at the French Open, WImbleton and the Olympics, Nadal is an omnipresent force on the clay.. it just so happens he has the extreme good looks to supplement. The hunky Nadal has already appeared in New York magazine, Shakira's 2010 "Gypsy" video as well as advertisements for car company Kia. Armani's decision to fill the spot held by Christiano Rinaldo and David Beckham is sure to enlighten those who are still unaware of his unforgettable muscles, er, skills.
The Rafael-ed campaign for Emporio Armani underwear and Armani Jeans are set to steam up magazine ads and billboards in February 2011. Ole!
