Congratulations to Stanislas Wawrinka for winning both the Australian Open AND a spot on Swoonworthy’s radar screen at the same exact time!

The Swiss tennis star took his first-ever major title on Sunday, beating Rafael Nadal in an upset. The Stanimal is not only pretty good at his chosen sport (obvs), he’s also quite spectacular at posting photos on his social media accounts. We like the shirtless ones the best (obvs), so we thought you would, too. Enjoy! 8 Stanislas Wawrinka Shirtless Shots:

Novak Djokovic Owns the US Open Already

He’s played, like, one match in the tournament so far, but as far as we’re concerned returning champ Novak Djokovic already owns this year’s US Open.

He gamely made a spectacle of himself singing and dancing to “Call Me Maybe” during Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day, but topped even himself for coolness — and he’s been very cool for a long time — by responding to a young boy’s marriage proposal with a quick tennis lesson and a hug. LOVE HIM!!!

The 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition includes a bit of counterprogramming for the ladies and the gays, with supermodel Bar Refaeli posing with tennis stud Rafael Nadal, basketball star Chris Paul and swim hunk Michael Phelps. Beautiful pics, really — but get out of the way, woman!

Rafael Nadal Stars in My Favorite New Movie

Evidence that all movies should be made by Armani: It’s exciting, it’s less than a minute long and it’s hot young star does exactly what you hope he will (until the last couple of seconds anyway).

Check out a few of my favorite stills below:
