Today, I’m featuring Spanish tennis player, Raphael Nadal, currently ranked no. 2 in the world. Nadal has been in the spotlight ever since the summer of 2005 when he won the French Open. Since then, he’s been a regular at not just Roland Garros but at all four majors. He has an amazing game and was the guy who grabbed the no. 1 ranking from Roger Federer who had been ranked no. 1 an astounding 237 weeks.

Today, I’m featuring Spanish tennis player, Fernando Verdasco, a former Top 10 player and a force to be reckoned with especially on clay.
Verdasco made it to the third round of the US Open where he lost to Jo Wilfred Tsonga – a tough competitor from France who is still in the tournament. As you can see Fernando has a killer smile to match his abs. He’s yet another tennis player I wish they would let play without a shirt. I’m fairly certain the ratings would go through the roof.
The US Open started last week, and despite the rain, the tournament continues (albeit in fits and starts). To celebrate the Open I’ve been posting a handsome male tennis player each day there is play.
Today, I’m featuring Argentinian tennis player, David Nalbandian, a player who just a few years ago was ranked as high as 3 in the world, but in recent years has seen his ranking drop and is currently 76 in the world.
This year David made it to the third round of the US Open where he lost to Raphael Nadal – last year’s US Open Champion. Nalbandian is now 29 and doesn’t have the same game he did a few years ago, but he’s still an excellent competitor who has a career to be proud of for certain.

Today, I’m featuring Spanish tennis player, David Ferrer, who is currently playing yesterday’s “Tennis Tease”, Andy Roddick. David is currently ranked 5 in the world and has a game to back up that ranking.
Although Ferrer is definitely more at home on clay courts (lets be frank all the Spaniards are), David’s game is so strong you cannot count him out. However, whoever wins today’s match will have a short lived victory as I fully expect Raphael Nadal to pull through and meet that player in the quarter finals.
Today, I’m featuring American tennis player, Andy Roddick, who will be playing David Ferrer later today. Roddick is a former Top 10 player and won the US Open back in 2003. However, he’s 29 now and his game has slipped in recent years. Despite that fact, I can’t help but pull for Andy and hope he can beat Ferrer (the second highest ranked Spaniard). You can cheer on Andy tonight 7PM ET on ESPN2.
Today, I’m featuring a Bulgarian player named Grigor Dimitrov. Currently ranked 57, Grigor lost in the first round to the extremely physical Frenchman, Gael Monfils. However, he’s still quite young at only 20 years of age and he has time to improve his game. Time will tell if he can, but in the interim, I enjoy watching this young man play.
Today, I’m featuring French player Arnaud Clement, a former top 10 player. Arnaud is one of the older players on the tour now that he’s in his early 30s and in recent years he’s had more success playing doubles although he and Lukas Dlouhy unfortunately lost in the Open’s first round this year.
