Despite being the 2015 French Open champion, Swiss tennis player Stan Wawrinka seems like a pretty humble fella. For the ESPN magazine "Body Issue," he strips down but explains that he's not about showing off his physique.

"My body is for my tennis, it's for my sport. I'm not a model at all. I don't work out to go to the beach, I work out to play well and to do well on the court."

He's up against plenty of competition at Wimbledon this month, but the guy seems to enjoy the challenge. 

"For me, motivation is easy. I enjoy what I'm doing and I'm lucky to play tennis. I enjoy the suffering. It's something quite natural for me to go on the court and suffer, and to go in the gym and to suffer, and to know the only way to get better is to work out — that's what I like."

OK, even though we're not fans of the knee-length tennis shorts. The D.HEDRAL undies aren't so bad. Plus, it seems the tennis rivalry will continue off-court as Wawrinka will be going head-to-head against Rafael Nadal — who is fronting the underwear campaign for Tommy Hilfiger.
