    Does anyone have any pictures of info on what Fed and Nad will be wearing? I dont think Nadal will top the pink outfit ever, if he was to go for something eye raising again.. unless he went back to sleeveless
    Thanks to whoever posts something useful.

    why has Nike decided to dress Nadal like a clown for the better part of 2 years now?

    Shirts look different but could never find myself wearing any of them. Nike werent really thinking about marketing on this one. On second thoughts, Nadal's is ok.

    Thanks for the pic.

    I kinda like Fed's FO shirt better that Nadal's.. Rafa's shirt looks like it was designed by an 8 year old with some crayons! I tried it on at Niketown to see what it would look like. Didn't change my mind though.

    I don't like either of them.Rafa's however is less clownish than the kitchen curtains he used to wear,so we can take this as improvement.

    Nike is making a great effort to make Rafa Nadal into a clown.

    I like Rafa's outfit. I must be part of a very small minority on here that thinks Nike is doing a pretty good job with him. I think they capture the 'spirit' of Rafa very well actually.

    Federer's outfit is rather blah, conservative and predictable. Might work for some 'purists' but it's not my cup of tea at all. Very boring.

    No, obviously that photo was taken last year since the 2010 French Open hasn't happened yet so he was still using the K90 cosmetic last year. The new 2010 shirt is just photoshopped onto last year's pic.

    I like the Fed shirt (but not at $80). Rafa's is a little much for me - getting the earlier Rush/Crush - probably the yellow.

    Got the Rafa bandana that goes with the FO shirt when I was in Rome - nice color.

    ive noticed that nadal's lucky colours are blue and green.
    when he has won grand slams and big tournaments, he has worn either blue or green vast majority of the time.
    pink and red are his unlucky colours, he has lost whenever he wore those 2 colours.

    i hope rafa can win the french open this year, will be difficult, but he will have to play his very best to win it.

    I just wish that Federer would wear a color other than freaking blue at Roland Garros. He's worn a shade of blue every year there since 2006! Mix it up man!

    They should drop this stupid logo size thing. I would love to see some retro style nike gear with the big swoosh. Whats the odd's on fed wearing black and red at the US?!

    And it seems like a growing trend for Federer, especially at the slams.

    Australian Open: He's worn a shade of light blue every year since 2007 (with the exception of the purple in 2009, which I personally loved)

    Roland Garros: As I mentioned earlier, blue every year since 2006.

    Wimbledon: Everyone has to wear white, although he wears it best! :p

    US Open: 2003 - Red
    2004-2007 - Blue
    2008/2009 - Red

    Anyone else sensing a trend here?

    He always wears tops that are a little different from retail, didnt the sleeves on his polos last year differ from retail? He is just special I guess.

    Watching Nadal's match today, I actually really liked Nadal's outfit. It looked like it suited him well, and IMO it looks much better than the photoshopped versions that we've seen on TT.

    Maybe Fed thinks blue is his lucky color, he won the French last year in blue and AO this year in blue

    The white swoosh can be seen more easily... it would be stupid from Nike to put an almost invisible blue logo on his shirt. The possible clients (people who watch the matches) wouldn't necessarily notice that Rafa Nadal's choice is NIKE and not some other brand like adidas. I have no idea why they decided to put the blue swoosh on the retail shirts, though....

    It's not really blue blue the Aussie Open was really a Teal/Marina color.

    This one is called Bluegrass, but it looks more like seafoam.
