As Rafael Nadal prepares for his comeback at the Australian open, he scores another grand slam…for his modelling career. This time, he’ll be dropping his pants for Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2015 Underwear and Tailored Collections.

“Rafael Nadal has been a longtime personal friend and supporter of our brand, and I’m continuously inspired by his dedication and passion for his sport,” said Hilfiger. “This exclusive partnership brings one of the greatest athletes of this generation into our Tommy family. Rafael embodies an effortless sense of style that exemplifies and reflects our brand spirit – he’s confident, fun and cool.” 

The 28-year-old tennis star, who has signed a two-year agreement with Hilfiger, will be photographed in Spain early next year. This is the second underwear modelling gig that Nadal has landed with a major fashion brand. He appeared with Megan Fox in steamy ads for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans in 2011. If those are anything to go by, we can expect the Hilfiger campaign to be smokin’ (in a nerdy kind of way).
