Rafael Nadal was defeated in the quarter-finals of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters tournament, but we thankfully got to see him in those tight pink shorts one more time!
The 34-year-old tennis star has been getting a lot of attention on social media for the shorts and how good he looks in them. Make sure to check out the one specific photo that has gone viral online.
“Nike needs a Nobel peace prize for these shorts, my man is on fiiiiire,” the fan who posted the photo said. And we agree!
Rafael was defeated on Friday (April 16) while playing against Russian tennis star Andrey Rublev.
“For some reason I had problems with my serve,” Rafa said in a post-match interview. “I don’t understand why, because I was not having problems in the practices at all. But today, was one of those days that my serve was a disaster. Serving like this, the serve creates an impact on the rest of the game. When you serve with no confidence, you are just focusing on trying to serve, not thinking about how you want to [hit] the ball. You just think about what you have to do with the serve to put the ball in. When you face great player like him and you don’t play well, you should lose. That’s easy to analyze.”
Rafael will next be playing at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell in Spain.
