Sportrait: Rafael Nadal


Looking particularly hot, Spain's Rafael Nadal beat fellow Spaniard Tommy Robredo to win his 47th straight match on clay Sunday, besting Bjorn Borg's streak of 46 wins. He'll have to win seven more matches to beat Guillermo Vilas' all-time record of 53.


After handily beating Robredo to take the 2006 Open Seat Godo, the rivals gave each other a drenching Champagne shower. Perhaps a better use for the bubbly than drinking it.

  1. Kudos to Rafa! Nadal seems to have stepped into the void created by Andy Roddick's mojo.

  2. He's a hot kid, but Robredo is a handsome man himself too... and according to a US Open locker room attendant, allegedly, he's hung like a donkey. I want that job...
