A bit of a random question, but I was wondering how those of you with Nike wristbands wear it on your right arm - is it Federer style with the swoosh ending towards the elbow, or Nadal style with the swoosh ending towards the wrist?

I sort of wish they have them in the reverse swoosh (think how they're positioned on socks).

Swoosh towards the wrist.

This! It just looks weird the other way. :)

I never notice. This is truly a case where Form Follows Function.

This the best position for a logo on wristbands in terms of aesthetics and functionality IMO:

I think the swoosh is meant to be wear with end toward WRIST, so the swoosh is "good" when you're playing (with your arm being horizontal).

See example bellow : the swoosh is "wrong"...

I basically wear it like Roger does. But I had absolutely no idea he wore it like this, and that Nadal wore it the other way.

Now that I think about it, wearing it the other way makes more sense.

i just started wearing them too, and i faced it like Roger did for a day, but i changed it. Makes more sense for it to face the people watching me play then only me seeing it right. btw does anyone wear it both wrists or like Federer?

Before Nadal did the Roger's way too.

However, Roger is right handed while Rafa is left so it looks more "proper" for Rafa.

//Anw i too never notice this and just do Roger's way. Although I have to pause for a moment after looking at this thread but I think im still sticking to the old way :p

Right-handed should end the swoosh toward wrist.
Left-handed should end the swoosh toward elbow.

That makes no sense.

Federer's is upside down. Rafa's is the right way up. It has nothing to do with left hands or right hands.

All Roger has to do is turn his around so its the right way (left to right) for the people looking at him.
