Apparently they decided the small bright dots on his AO shorts weren't visible enough, and now they're not taking any chances with that :lol:

The shorts in the third pic remind me of some primary school uniform. :baby: . And for some reason the blue shirt remind me of silicon valley. :o.

GOD , What on earth could 've happened to these guys and to Rafa.

Oh noooez, no wonder 'grandpa' Rafa is losing and will keep on losing, those shorts are just too hideous to wear. :help: :help:
But maybe they'll scare his opponents or make them feel sick. :o :shrug:

Nike needs to get a grip. :rolleyes:
Giving Nadal a more mature look is one thing but they're taking it to other extremes. Either, they make him look like a strawberry/lemon ice cone, an Ikea employee or a pensioner.

I do like the green color of this outfit, though:

The yellow/black he'll be wearing at the USO looks pretty cool, I reckon. His shoes are sweet too. Good to see his outfit matching his racquet, I suppose... though being a guy, I've never really cared for what he wears or doesn't wear. Saw it over on the Talk Tennis forums, similar shorts to the Aus. Open night outfits except the studs/dots are also yellow/gold... lol. All in all, better than RG this year and last year's clown shorts at Flushing Meadows.

Hate the logo idea. It will seriously piss me off if he starts having his logo plastered all over his clothing.

I don't like it much either. And these propositions all look terrible, at least seems like Rafa doesn't like the 'bull' image and logo so hopefully it'll be dropped.

That green looks good on him. The shorts have a good cut (not too baggy, not too long,...) but they could do without that pattern but all in all, it's not so bad.

There is way too much hoopla over Rafa's outfits. :zzz: FFS, the thread in GM is more about the damn outfit than the match (I didn't see the match so I can't comment on it).

CHECKERED shorts, I mean PLEEEEEEEEEEASE, the cut or length are quite irrelevant here. :o :o :o :help: :help: :help: Need to go read the match thread.
And outfits are an important part of the 'business' now. :shrug:

I like the bull logo. All the other suggestions are hideous.

We need Coratia pants and Scotland flag t-shirts in the game. Roger should play with Swiss shirts and romanians with national footbal shirts. Also, Canadiens should obliged to play with the leaf and Americans with the inscription: we are america :inlove:
Also Stepanek with american football jersey and Simon with little poussins in the sleeves.

I can understand why nike wanted to move rafa away from the sleeveless look as he becomes more mature, but couldn't their designers come up with something more cool or retro//fila inspired ...if I was in charge I would give him a body suit t-shirt with dark long collar ala Bjorn borg ...that would kick ass
