Shirtless Rafael Nadal Doesn't Seem Too Upset by His Wimbledon Loss

Jul 8 2014 - 11:20am

Rafael Nadal may have lost his Wimbledon [1] match against Canadian Milos Raonic last week, but it looks like he still has plenty to smile about. The athlete traded his tennis whites for a bright pink bathing suit while vacationing in Ibiza with friends on Tuesday — check out more sports stars showing skin in the sun [2]. Rafael's early exit from Wimbledon made time for his getaway, but before he headed to Spain, he shared a sweet message with his fans on Facebook: "We're leaving Wimbledon. I want to thank your incredible support, both when things work out and when they don't." It's not the first time he's escaped to his home country after the famed tennis tournament; he traveled to Formentera [3] after his Wimbledon loss in 2011 and to Mallorca following his victory over Roger Federer in 2008.

Rafael will have another chance at winning big on July 16, since he's up for the best international athlete [4] prize at the ESPYs, which will be hosted by Drake.
