Nadal appears in steamy Shakira video

Tennis fans may do a double-take when Shakira's latest music video debuts in April.

That's because Rafael Nadal stars opposite the Colombian songstress in the steamy vid for her upcoming single "Gypsy."

Nadal and Shakira filmed the video last month in Barcelona, sparking tabloid rumblings about a possible romance -- rumors that a spokesperson for Nadal denied last week.

The 31-year-old Shakira is engaged to Antonio de la Rúa, the son of former President of Argentina Fernando de la Rúa. Nadal, 23, is currently in a relationship with high school sweetheart Maria Francisca Perello.

A sneak peek of the video was released Thursday on the Web:
