RAFAEL NADAL COVERS VANITY FAIR SPAIN’S 5TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE
Fresh off his 13th Grand Slam win, Rafael Nadal transitioned from the tennis scene to the fashion scene. He swapped out his Nike threads in favor of a tuxedo and a slicked back hairdo. Together with model Clara Alonso, he covers the latest issue of Vanity Fair Spain, which celebrates the publications’s 5th Anniversary. Nadal had also appeared in the magazine’s debut issue, in 2008.
In celebration of the anniversary, the October issue celebrates Spanish talent like Nadal, who has “achieved success with sacrifice, perseverance and passion.” Vanity Fair Spain interviewed tennis star in New York, prior to the U.S. Open. For the full interview, read on here.
