    They look as stupid as Serena's outfits on the women's side.

    Yes, they are ugly. And they can not be considered as tennis shorts, they prevent movement, tennis shorts must be short !

    Nadal looks like a fisherman with those pants...I believe they should even be quite unconfortable to move easily on the court...also..long pants are not the best to wear in the Australian hot summer!!

    haha, these shorts are equivalent to the puffy shirt from Seinfeld! Maybe Nadal got wrongly obligated to wear the shorts by a deaf Nike marketing agent?

    It's all about personal taste, this is a bit more extreme in fashion sense than the sleeveless shirts. Sleeveless shirts veer toward a more masculine look while these capri shorts express a bundled up femininity from within. Hey, if it feels good, do it.

    Well, long and baggy is more masculine, but long and tighter are what the ladies wear.

    I think they look cool and wonder if they are heading tennis back to the days of long white trousers and dress shirts of the lawn tennis bygone era ?

    I don't care who wears them and how cool everyone thinks they are, I will never wear one of those things. :)

    now i wish they weren't 45 bucks, i would def wear those to tryouts on feb 1st for school. maybe they might take it easy on me cuz it looks like im an idiot who has no idea where i am.

    but.... they actually do look comfy..... =D

    but yes, as some did recall, its like serena's outfit, just stupid. but if i was paid, i think i could sport those capris.
    whats nike thinking marketing these players like this?
