    I know that the drifit is in the other place for Rafa, but it also seams that the colour of the stripe is a little diffrent than Rafa's shirt or is that because it's on picture or because it gets more blue when he sweats

    It's probably a fake, some guy was selling the blue/pink color and had lots of them on the bay, not sure how you'd still have multiple new shirts in every size, years later.

    No it's real. i had one 3 years ago, exact same colour, it's not fake but every Rafa 2009 AO shirt serms to have another colour or that's because Rafa sweats in it, it becomes more blue. I remember when I played an 3 hour match in the same shirt, but the one I bought 3 years ago, the only time the colour was exactly the same. But if you look at Rafa's shirt before his match it is almost or exactly because of the lighting there not sure whether exactly.
    PS: the guy that is selling them on the bay is my friend, he gets them from the nike stockist, I've been there with him once, i ordered the shirt and his USO one from the official nike stockist so the aren't fake. i even tried different sizes before I actually bought them

    01: RN nike photo is photoshopped
    02: Man, have you ever sweated on the shirt and see the colour it gets?

    simply it's a different shirt. Nadal one was a PE and the retail was a printed PJ

    Anyway, don't get fooled by what you see on pictures or TV : sometimes the camera lense altered colors a bit.
    The best example I can tell is the 2012 Green abyss color (Federer's Indian Wells 2012 polo and Miami white/abyss crew) : on most of the pictures (try Google), and even on TV you can see it blue. I bought them and it's clearly a green shade (kind of turquoise green).

    Here is an image of my crew:
    on the left (and the left part of the swoosh) is what my camera took. On the right, I tried to photoshopped what you really see in person.

    Very different, isn't it ? :shock:
