I don't know about it being a good marketing move, but it sure would help my eyes when I open a magazine.

But of course I still have to see all the WTA players sleeveless, and often with their bra straps showing. Unless Nike plans to make them wear sleeves, I as a female viewer feel I'm being discriminated against. Nike, if you're listening, many of us get great pleasure out of looking at Rafa's hot bod, and particularly those arms. Women like to look at men as much as men like to look at women. Wake up, Nike. Sex sells goes for BOTH genders.
Bring back the short shorts, Nike!

Re: Indoor outfit 2008..

My only real fashion problems with the outfit are these: The colors are spring/summer colors, and the top and the shorts don't go together very well.

Speaking seriously, the tennis is more important than the clothes, and god knows I've watched my favorite players wear truly hideous clothing many, many times. I've gotten to the point that all I pray for is clothing that isn't insanely outsized.

Only thing is, he doesn't have to be a pirate anymore. All the ships have been conquered. He's trying to stuff himself into someone else's royal boots and crowns. Not easy.

I hope he realises he's at best a pirate.

Xristos, add a poll. Its time we have a consensus on how many Rafatards like watching him wear sleeveless and how many can swallow this new nike propaganda without going pukesy.

He's best a pirate all the same. The piratas and sleeveless lend the best support to his persona.

Re: Indoor outfit 2008..

Boy, there's a lot of strong reactions in here over an outfit. Wasn't he supposed to wear a top with sleeves at USO but at the last minute he decided not to? He only wore it for Arthur Ashe Kids Day. It was a nice change for a day but the pirate outfit is so uniquely his that I can't really see him changing his style. Comfort is the name of the game.

I won't be able to watch Rafa anymore without getting annoyed thinking about the good old days before Nike screwed it up.

"I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Indoor outfit 2008..

Looks like Rafa is debuting his new look at the end of season masters.

In November 2008, at the Shanghai Masters Cup, Rafael Nadal will unveil his new image. Leaving his trademark sleeveless tops behind, from November he will be wearing this new surf-inspired kit. UK exclusive to pwp.com

Re: Indoor outfit 2008..

Looks like our complaints about the possible awful wardrobe change have been heard!

Surfers are shirtless!



Sure beats those ugly polo shirts Nike wanted to put Rafa in!

Save Rafa!
Just say NO to plaid shorts
