    Like Nadal's long shorts (not the piratas). Anyone know what name they're marketed under?

    i got a pair at wimbledon, and love them, they are made from a softer nike material, and they are really light,
    nadals at wimbledon were slightly different though, his shorts seemed more like the down the line short from the australian open days,
    on the retail version the black design on the shorts is much thicker compared to his, the wimbledon officials probably thought there was too much black on them and had to be toned down

    if you get a pair you wont be dissopointed, all i can say is they come up a little bit big, but not much to worry about.
    all i can say is...
    you will like them!

    Do they require constant seat adjustment like Nadal's?

    no but the material is just as good as the nadal shorts, the down the line shorts are still my fav's.
    the material is quite stretchy and really cool to play in.
    hope this helps

    That used to be my club as well but it was a bit of a drive to get there so me and my family changed to Next Generation in Gidea Park. Played a tournament at David Llyod a few months ago tho....

    They have to be more comfortable than those capri pants. Is it just me but Nadal seem to be picking his ass a lot less than previous showings.

    that is pretty weird, David lloyds club is good though there are plenty of different surfaces to play on, and you can get a court pretty much anytime, im glad i joined, only been going for since january and ive just started getting coaching at dlloyds, but everything is being put on hold at the moment, as i broke my arm last tuesday and am in plaster at the moment, so i miss the best part of the tennis years calander (summer), least david lloyds have got a roof though, so i can have a proper winter season!

    I would say that the coaching at NG is a little better than DLlyod but i do remember the store there being very good. Too bad about your broken arm!
