Whether we're discussing the playing styles or the clothing they wear on-court, I like Federer's more so than Nadal's.

Fed... I didn't really like the whole stripe ordeal the last two seasons (winter/spring), but 2006 Wimby/US Open were clean... From the looks of things, Fed's clothes for this year's Wimby will look hawt, especially with the Gold V4's...

Nadal has a horrible sense of fashion, I would never wear the things he wears, I mean, he looks like a ****ing pirate. I choose death over capris.

Well, so far it's 29 to 2 in favor of Federer. I guess that speaks volumes about how people feel about the sleeveless shirts and capri pants.

Lloyd Barcenilla im adding ur signature to mine, i love that quote. Fed's classic polo look is kool. But i do like the sleevless Nadal Look. Its so funny how nadal and federer are oposite in so many ways.

Although I prefer Nadal's playing style and I have a certain affinity for Spanish people, since I had my coming of age in their beautiful country, Nadal's style is terrible. That being said, the "bull fighter's pants" fit his image in a novel way--like the Spanish character in Mike Tyson's Punch Out--but it wouldn't be too far of a stretch of the imagination to picture him wearing one of those outfits with Teva's and a fanny pack when he's not on the court.

Fed's style would be better if he got a haircut and didn't wear those ******y bandanas.

Nadal.

This year I find Feds clothing is abit boreing.

Hopefully that changes in 08.

Wow! If you think those long board surfer shorts that Federer wears are "short" then what must you think of the shorts that Edberg wore not all that long ago? :confused: :-o

They call them shorts for a reason. Get a tan, do some leg extensions, and wear some real shorts.

well, i would definitely choose federer over nadal. i HATE that capris.

federer - clean and classic

-that goes for both his game and clothes

I still believe pro players should wear collar shirts and have sleeves. Of course, I guess I'm old fashioned at age 33. It would keep our beloved sport from looking like other sports where sportwear and gold teeth and grilles go hand in hand.

Nadal's look seems to me ridiculous, especially when he uses a bandana to cover his head entirely. And his game style doesn't help aesthetically.
Federe's look try to be elegant, but there's often some detail that prevent Nike from completing the task: shoes' shape; colors... And Federer's face and hairstyle don't help a lot :-) However, he's a very gentle and polite person And Nadal too.

I wear capris and sleveless for all sports for many years (before Rafa came in). +bandana and sweatbands for tennis. That's cool look for recreation, but not for tour.

lethalfang
06-30-2007, 02:29 AM
Definitely Federer.
I don't need flamboyant clothing just to get attention. Getting attention by wearing outrageous clothing is undeserved attention, thus unflattering attention.

If I had guns like Nadal's, I'd wear sleeveless shirts.

Even though not a fan ,I like Nadals style of play because of the physicality and intensity that he brings to the court each and every point.

Federer is the best out there now in terms of variety and simplicity but I relate a little better to Nadals game.

Federer.

They both have bad style, but Nadal's capri/pajama pants give Roger the automatic win.

I'll admit that Federer is one of the greats, and his play is nearly impeccable, but Nadal is so much more exciting. The energy he brings on to the court makes every shot better.

federer may very well be the best dressed tennis player playing. he has class and style. his clothes fit and he uses good color schemes. he reminds me of tiger on the golf course. looks better than every other competitor out there.

During Wimbledon, Federer would more likely be on the cover of GQ or other magazines, sporting the white blazer and long pants. Nadal already appeals to the younger players. I'll take Federer's style at Wimbledon, but I'll take Nadal's everywhere else.

When it comes to clothes, Nadal. He looks like he will chew you apart with his capri pants!!

But, when it comes to tjeir techniques, I have to give it to Fed. He plays with finesse

Federer, few people can pull of the sleeveless, and the shorts/pants are just plain ugly. Playing, though, I'm all for Rafa. I play similarly to him, so thats why.
