Re: Rafa's bullcap released!

I like it. Although I would put the symbol more central and not aside as they've done.

Re: Rafa's bullcap released!

In one of his interviews Rafa declined to answer when he was asked about the bullfights (so maybe he doesn't really like or approve them) and didn't he write in some blog or smth that he wasn't too thrilled about the bull logo stuff/didn't want to use it? I know I am old and my memory is all gone sadly. Maybe some younger one can dig it up?

Oh thanks, yes it was the Q & A. And no need to be at all!

I understand it's an obvious (bullfighter) and somewhat cliché image Nike has created for Rafa opposite to Fed and I don't have anything against it really as Rafa is still young but I wonder how Rafa himself feels about it. Maybe they could come up with something better.

Re: Rafa's bullcap released!

I'm not particularly keen on personalized clothing for top players no matter if it's a symbol, the full name or the initials, though.

Last year in Monte Carlo, Rafa was wearing a similar cap but with the bull horns symbol in the middle of the cap, in blue and without the Nike symbol on it. A friend of mine asked Benito if those caps will be for sale and Benito then answered that they were thinking of several designs and the proceeds would go to Rafa's foundation but they hadn't yet decided whether they would go ahead with it.

Re: Rafa's bullcap released!

i luv it, i want one.

rafa doesn't talk of contentious non-tennis matters, bullfighting is a highly such one. chances are he doesn't give a f*ck since it isn't a popular thing in Mallorca however, he isn't associated by those symbols to bullfighting but to bulls, the cultural significance of which for all mediterranean people, specially kept in Iberia, go well beyond "bullfighting" as such.

Re: Rafa's bullcap released!

Yeah I get that bullfiighting is not that popular in Mallorca and Rafa probably doesn't care much /as a nice person he is doesn't want to create any controversy (with the animal rights activists or whomever).
But Rafa as a bull.... may be but don't like it much. Then Fed should have the ballerina logo or smth. j/k j/k

That's a great idea.

Re: Rafa's bullcap released!

I remember reading quite some time ago (when specifically asked about it) that he doesn't like bullfighting. I can't remember what he said exactly but he added something about knowing that it's part of Spain's heritage and such but he doesn't like watching it.
