Rafael Nadal Named One Of Sports Illustrated’s ‘Most Fit Male Athletes In Sports’

Sports Illustrated put together a list of the 50 fittest men in sports and world no. 1 Rafael Nadal made the list at No. 23.

Strength, speed, agility, flexibility and power were taken into account in the making of the list, which was topped by Real Madrid’s football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Here’s what SI had to say about Rafa:

Back at the top of the rankings for the first time since 2014, 31-year-old Nadal is known for his workman-like, grinding style of play, something instilled in him under the tutelage of his uncle Toni. Despite a 2016 wrist injury, Nadal toiled his way back—arguably returning stronger and more physically fit than his younger self—and won a historic 10th French Open and third U.S. Open title, bringing him to 16 career Grand Slams. And he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
