    I think both lack imagination and are underwhelming. Federer's is a little better.

    Federer has a better logo but I wouldn't want any of their logos on my shirt or pants or whatever
    also Nadal's looks like one of those stupid celtic tattoos

    Nadal is not lucky to have a logo, the logo is lucky to have Nadal.

    They're both pretty bad, but I'd say Federer's is better.

    I'd say Fed's. His logo is a perfect example of great logo design. It's distinctive, instantly recognizable, communicates exactly what's intended, and it's styling is classically aligned rather than ostentatious which often quickly fades as a fad.

    Rafa's bull logo is a good logo but only if one knows Rafa. Just by looking at the logo, for one who doesn't know Rafa, it's hard to "capture" what the logo is trying to say. I guess the best way I can explain the difference is that Nike created a brand with Roger's logo but only created fans with Rafa's.

    Indeed =/ I've only just realised that is his logo, after seeing this thread. So.... Roger's :p

    I dunno I've never been into stylistic lettering; letters are letters. The bull is better imagery and representation, but I really think the design could have been much better. I still have to go for the bull, i'm not into wearing someone else's initials.

    what if your initials were Robert Fernandez, huh? lol

    I say Fed's just because I don't like the way they designed the bull (even though it's the sign of my patron saint)

    Haha you clever boy. Then wear it I shall!
    and about the bull, it's a little skinny right? reminds me of some energy drink or something. Not red bull maybe a green monster energy drink

    The reason I like Nadal's logo is because it is much more manly. It says "I'm here to kick @$$ and take names".

    Roger's logo is good for off court wear, ie just casual wear. To me Roger's logo says "I am here to look cool first win second".

  13. Nadal's by leaps and bounds. It's an actual image with a modern design that has meaning beyond being self absorbed. Monogrammed initials are corny as heck.

    I thought a saw this on some of his stuff, wasn't sure if it was his logo or not. Is it supposed to resemble like bull horns or something?

    I think both are kinda uninspiring TBH. Fed's use of his initials are tacky and Nadal's bull logo seems as mentioned above, underwhelming. Then again, the more aesthetically pleasing logo is Rog's.

    I know why I am disappointed with Rafas! It looks like a cross between Powerade and Power Rangers!

    But still like it over RF. why would you wear his initials unless you're going steady.

    I go with Rafa's. I don't like the idea of initials, to me that's seems like too much self-absorbtion for others to walk around bearing your name. I'd go with the bull because it signifies strength and qualities that anyone can acquire as opposed to saying I want to be like Rafa. I feel the same way about Calvin Klein, and other designers. No free marketing here. The only name I'll ever wear will be my own.

    Both are good in their own right and reflect the personalities of Roger and Rafa (and ones who prefer the brands) well.

    That's what branding is about.

    I like both logos. The RF logo is very classy and I think really represents Federer. The Nadal logo is pretty cool too, its very aggressive, its a bull, and yet also his initials as well. I think it was cool they were able to fit all that.

    Well both logos have definately improved.
    They looked quite different in the beginning of their careers.
    I like them both by now.

    Thats what they looked like back in 2007:

    Do they own their logo?

    Or is both totally owned by Nike (and therefore will never be printed/stamped on the players' other non-nike items)?

    I'm torn. But I'd never even seen Nadal's before, so if he doesn't use it enough it doesn't count.

    Federer has a nicer, more distinct mark. It's very classic and understated and it works well. I think it fits him very well.

    Nadal's is nice aesthetically, but is a little vague in connection to him. I do like the energetic lines, fitting for Nadal's powerful style of play. I think maybe it needs to grow and establish itself.

    Also Roger's logo is a bit self absorbed where as Rafa's logo represents a universal name given to him by fans.

    Looks like most people didnt realize. actually the logos are switched.

    what you see as Nadal's bulls logo is actually Roger's and vice versa. The initials are not RF but RP (Rafael Perera) made to look like RF. The bull isnt actually a bull but its federer pose when he strikes a forehand, made to look like bull.



    The reasons
    1) mutual respect (and such other crap)
    2) Roger is a ******* and Nadal is a *******.
    3) whats the point in putting a logo on one's own shirt that is hard to see. have an opponent wear them and you have a sense of pride.
    4)..... well, if you still believe me, let me know. i will post more.
