Rafael Nadal Does Vogue June 2009

  • Pin it

Vogue’s June/July 2009 issue might look light on the outside, but behold! There’s a heavy Feature Story to it!

Rafael Nadal photos by Bruce Weber spice up an interview with the tennis champ. (don’t get your hopes up, there’s almost nothing personal disclosed in the interview, it’s mainly tennis!) Now, can someone tell me why would Anna choose to take on Rafael Nadal and not highlight her official tennis crush, protégé Roger Federer? That’s a summer mystery to me! Is she playing both camps? (more pictures after the jump!) (via 1, 2)

Kpriss, even Anna is just a woman? I don’t know much about tennis but I never mind to watch a bit of a tennis game when Rafa plays.

Excuse my gush but Rafa is my guy!
I adore him, I have for a while and he such a great tennis player and athlete! It is of no surprise to me why Anna would have an article on Rafa, he is handsome, young and he is now number 1! Roger is no longer the golden boy of tennis (nothing against Roger or his fans).
Also have you ever watched him play? He is deliciously masculine!
I was going to skip this issue but now I HAVE TO GET IT!

End of gush. : )

oh, ladies! I intended this as a short, quick link article. But then my husband got a glimpse of it and convinced me to do a normal one, with larger pictures. (because, he said, you’ll love it! And right he was!)

When I look at Rafael Nadal, I have a feeling he’s misplaced in time. He should have been born in another era, when being a gentleman really meant something. That’s my take on him – a young gentleman in tennis. But then again, I only saw him play once or twice (you know, that TV-not kingdom in my house) so I could be judging too fast…

Anyway, I’m so happy you liked it! (and yes, he should have covered June’s Vogue)

Kpriss, you lucky woman, your husband knows what women wants lol!
Anyway, the great Anna Wintour, who’s mad about tennis, desires apparantly only the right fashion because the cover doesn’t even mentioned him on the cover!
