A number of well known tennis players, male and female, have been photographed in the nude, on their volition or otherwise. This week, we take a look at the Top 5 nude men.
Rafael Nadal – This series of surreptitiously snapped photos were in 2008 on…that’s right a boat. But not just any old boat. This king of clay was riding high on a Princess V45 – a half of a million dollar speed boat.
Tommy Robredo- One of the many tennis-playing Spaniards to take their clothes off before a stroll in front of the camera, Robredo, like his fellow Spaniards, posed for a good cause. In his case, this photo was published in Cosmopolitan UK to fund prostate cancer research and the Everyman campaign.
Patrick Rafter - The Australian, former No. 1 posed in socks – and nothing else for the Bond clothing company. He can still be seen as the face for the company, posing in hoodies, underwear and what have you.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – This Frenchman also posed in Cosmo UK in support of the Everyman campaign and testicular and prostate cancer awareness. Tsonga is quoted as saying “My favorite part of my body is my buttocks, but I don’t like my feet. On a woman, I love beautiful eyes. As for no bedroom action the night before a big match, that depends on who’s in my bed! I could never choose between sex and tennis; I’d have to say both, as long as you enjoy it.”
James Blake – One of the only American men to voluntarily disrobe, Blake took part in a rather strange Evian water marketing campaign involving a bathtub filled with the premium Alp water. He was reportedly going to take place in the 2009 edition of the ESPN body issue, alongside Serena Williams, but dropped out.
