No. 18: Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal is the world’s top-ranked tennis player, and one of the best to play the sport in history — he has even been nicknamed the ‘King of Clay’ for his dominance on the soft surface. He has monster endorsement deals with Nike, Armani, Bacardi, and Kia Motors, among others. He’s rich, athletic, and super successful — that’s not a bad combination at all. Nadal is our 18th hottest male in sports for 2013.
