Did Anyone Else Like Rafael Nadal's Pants?

I personally thought that Rafael Nadal's tight, white, light capri pants were really hot! MUCH better than the traditional baggy shorts! Everyone hated the sleeveless tops for the men at first, but now they're very popular. Get with the times and celebrate form-fitting pants on men.

Were not bad on F. Lo either. :D

Didn't really like his pants... but the contents of his pants were A-OK.
It was nice for a change but if I see any of my (almost) ass-less favourites wearing them I won't be impressed ;)

You are right about that. We have a saying here in Egypt: "What is inside is the winner", something like "The singer not the song".

I think I loved them on Nadal. I will love anything on him. With his looks, body and personality, he will add to anything. Just love this kid. :inlove: ;)

It seems though they were pretty unpractical in AO when he needed to be massaged. The trainer couldn't get his hands up the pants. :D

Since the Aussie, he's gone back to regular shorts!

NOOOOO

I can appreciate that he's making a fashion statement, or just having fun with what's available to him... I just don't see the point of them really.
I'm more of a fan of shorts like Lacoste :drool: (well, the length of Lacoste shorts!) shorts that show off the legs a bit more ;) I just feel like this is something that may have been around in the 1920's.

Don't get me wrong though... I think these Spanish guys could make parachute pants look hot. They can pull off the look, and they look fine :lick: on Lopez/Nadal, but I think if (for example) the guys in my signature tried them out, they'd look so wrong :) Then again... They'd probably be the right length for Mr Popp :tape:

The shorts Nadal wears are pretty awful as well they're very skimpy!

I was loving those capri pants/shorts Rafi was sporting. My first reaction when I saw him wearing them when playing in Auckland earlier in the year was 'what is up with those shorts/pants'? I didn't really like them that much at first but they've grown me. But yeah, I can see the impraticality of them

The only bad thing of those capris was Feliciano copying Nadal

How would you know who copied whom? They both wore them at Doha in January. :)

I saw a program on Eurosport, they were shopping together in Milan I think. So maybe they got them together. :D

Simply, he´s a pathetic player

a pathetic player that happens to be ranked higher than Nadal ;)

Those skinny tight capri pants only look good on slim-ish players with thin legs.
They would look terrible on guys like Roddick or Dent. :eek:

those pants were absolutely awful and i hope they never show up on a tennis court ever again!! whoever came up with those should be shot

shorts are the better option for obvious reasons- its just a new style- it may get good.

You obviously have to have something to be able to flaunt it in those pants. Personally I would look awful in them. You also have to have a nice butt. It's like the sleeveless top, which would ALSO look awful on Roddick.

I think Andy would look just fine in sleeveless shirts, he's got the upper body for it. The capri pants won't look good on his unless they are very baggy.

I can't ever imagine Andy rocking the manpris. Which is good because he (like most men) would look trés bad in them.

I suppose they looked okay on Nadal, but I'm beyond glad this is a trend that seems to have died before it ever really lived.

I didn't like them, but I like it when players at least try to wear something a little bit different or edgy. Better to try and fail once in a while than just be boring ;)

I love the sleeveless tops though :)

I didn't like capris. In fact, I actively loathed them. Then again, I'm not a fan.

I feel that only woman should wear capris. Men look ugly in them.
