I bought a couple pairs of Mediums.

And am swimming in them.

Fortunately I only bought them for casual wear so it doesn't matter.

the new collection (ie wimby and us open) have gotten smaller - should be more true to size fit

I don't generally like the Nadal stuff, so I had no past experience, but the L Fed shorts are too big on me, so I got M in these.

Just put them on, and it was like WTF?

I am a 27 year old 6'3" grown man, and I need Sz. Extra Small?

They do fit a little big.. or just loose. Still a nice short. For play or casual wear.

There should be no other size for tennis shorts.

I have the white FO shorts, and i had to get XS.

The shorts are still the best i have ever owned, very comfy and super light.

i would normally get M, but these ones were huuge on me.

i then tried S, still a bit loose.

Soo then XS, and the fit was snug. ;)

Hmmm....interesting. What's weird is that the Nadal shirts are WAY TOO tight. I tried on one of those crew neck shirts that he wore at the AO in Large and it fit more like an Extra Small. I usually wear a Medium or Large in shirts and this shirt was nowhere close to being a true Large.

Strange that Nike would make the shirts too small but the shorts too big. I think most people would look awful wearing a super tight and small shirt on top of huge shorts that are too big.

Where can I get XS sizes for the nike shorts? I know nike makes this size but TW does not order this size. You live in london, so can you recommend some european websites that carry this size?

Thank you...

IMO, the stuff Nike is making this year (at least for Nadal) is bad quality. I've bought some of it and I am really unhappy. I strongly advice anyone to avoid buying the Nike top motion shirt or any shirt with a colored stripe across it. The stripe is poorly made and it starts to crack after wearing the shirt only a few times. I hope that their next season (2010) is much better.

As for the shorts, I do own them and I agree they are very big in the hip area. All in all they're not bad but the Nike Nadal board shorts from 2007 are far better. IMO best shorts Nike has ever made.

We talking about these?

I just bought them at a nike outlet, I usually wear large, I bought large.

They did seem a little big but nothing that will stop me from playing in them. My friend had to buy a small and he usually wears medium though, i have large hips that keep clothes on me.
