    Towards the end of the tennis season while Nadal was wearing the green polo he was apparently wearing different types of green.

    You can tell with the headband, it's the same green.

    Guys, that's just the different color profiles of the digital SLR's used to take the picture. You wouldn't say Nadal was wearing a gray shirt if the picture was in black and white, would you? Same thing.

    Yes that is true, but as I was watching throughout all the tournaments he was actually wearing different shades of green.

    The YEC shirt actually looked much brighter to me than the others.. But that's probably just because of the very special lighting used in London

    As mentioned correctly, it is a combination of a color-space mismatch of different cameras and different white balance values on each camera under different lighting conditions.

    No conspirancy theory.
