The GQ Most Stylish Player award is presented to players that embody the perfect balance of style, elegance, and sportsmanship. This is the second year that GQ has partnered with the Tennis Federation. As per the magazine, tennis was chosen because it represents the ideal mix of  “concentration, precision, physical beauty, power, speed, and intelligence*”.

GQ states that style does not mean clothing alone, but rather, it embodies the passion and energy for the game, and also the humbleness of a true sportsman. “Tennis has always been synonymous with a strong personality, given the balance between special athletic power, physical resilience and pure instinct…”* they state.

Is it any wonder that Rafa Nadal has won this award? One should think not. A wonderful recognition; congratulations Rafa!
