Saw the Nadal Volt shirt in person at the Toronto event - can't believe how bright it is.
On the TWE, there's just a scarlet red bandana and no wristbands. I guess the wristbands will be red/white, not red/black as the ones currently on TW. Hopefully, they'll get available soon.
Found the answer to my question :
Both black and anthracite shorts are US releases only.
Fed is always wearing the "RF" shorts.
2 "RF" shorts are released for Fall (Europe availability only) :
- white with obsidian/red stripes
- obsidian with red/white stripes
Curiously, I can't find the blue with red/white stripes, just a blue with grey/white ones.
I see the obsidian RF shorts, but on TWE, I just find a white pull on short, no RF one. Do you have the link? Maybe I just can't see it.
Blue (obsidian) with red/white is here on TW US (no "RF"): http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Nike_Mens_Fall_Hard_Court_Pull_On_Short/descpageMANIKE-NMFHCPS.html#
here is white "RF" on TWE : http://www.tenniswarehouse-europe.com/descpage-NMRFTS-FR.html
I think TWE just updated their website because there are two pairs of shorts.
They also have obsidian/university red wristbands so I'm expecting premiers at the Open.
Thank you for your links, I just didn't realize that the white RF one was underneath the blue on since there was no sign of it in the picture.
As far as the pull-ons arte concerned, you wrote in your first post
I see all of them, except for the last one. Is that just a mistake? I see the obisidan one with red/white and a blue one with white/gery stripes, but no pull on short which is blue (not obsidian) and has red/white stripes.
I find the additional pair of RF shorts and there is also a new pair of red wristbands with white swoosh on TWE, but I can't find the obsidian/red articles on TW or TWE yet.
Another question: What is Fed wearing in his day session at USO exactly?
I know about the light blue crew and the white shorts with the red/obisidan stripes. Also, according to Babolast, red wristband and bandana.
But what about shoes and jacket? Does he use also the obsidian/red shoes and the obsidian/red jacket in his day sessions or does he use something different?
I think he's going to be using the obsidian/university blue/white vapors. As for the jacket, it will probably be the Wolf Grey/Obsidian navy one. But then again this is just speculating...
well it IS nike's arguably brightest color, so thats probably expected haha
did you think his shirt feels more like those nike running shirt material rather than his typical material? just felt a bit different to me, almost felt a bit cheaper..
also, does anyone know if the polo version of the rf hard court crew is going to be on tennis warehouse? I saw teh other day at sports chalet a polo with same color and crewneck area detail as the rf crew, but in the polo version, almost like rf's night sessioh polo
These are very nice looking polos, and a lot cheaper than Roger's crew and polo.
My mistake, I wrote "red" instead of "grey".
Definitely (light)blue + grey/white !
I've just edited my posts...
I'd say 'thinner', not cheaper. I have a few of Nike's running shirts - except for people who really follow tennis no one knows they aren't part of Nike's tennis line. And they are the same quality but made to be even lighter.
I'm sure this has probably been asked before but...
why aren't Roger's shorts available in North America anymore? Like seriously, they're so much nicer than those pull on shorts. I have rogers 2009 and 2010 Miami shorts, and they are awesome. I find it very annoying that I'll have to use proxies to get a pair of tennis shorts...
lol, I'm used to that haha
Don't know why it's only sold in Europe!
I just use RF shorts. They are soft, comfortable, and the zip+button stuff is just cool !!!! I wonder if the pull-on are the same material or cheaper ? Are they as comfy ??
Sometimes it's frustrating to have interesting pull-on colorway that is not available in "RF version
Any difference in fit between the two? Can always order off TWE.
Is there any difference between these 2 shirts other than the monogram, color, and welded seems? I dont see any other difference between these....
roger federer hard court polo
Nike UV hard court polo
Although the content seems the same? I'm not doubting you but its hard to compare unless you have both.
I once had both version of the red "London 10" polo, so I can compare and tell about that :
- "RF" monogram
- hard collar (better, cause it stands a bit more)
- hard and quality button placket
- no seems
- shorter sleeves
- softer material
- "Nike Tennis" logo
- soft collar
- soft button placket
- longer sleeves
- rougher material
Just noticed a small detail on RF vs Pull On shorts :
The obsidian/red stripe is inverted
I believe some trainspotters here (like I am) would appreciate this.
Bring back the damn RF shorts!
Is this the shirt that Rafa is supposed to wear in Cincinnati?
Same style... but Cinci shirt is supposed to be BLUE GLOW (which don't seems to be the case on your picture), with VOLT accent (not grey) :
Maybe a "Nike running" or "Nike training" shirt. I did a reserach but found nothing.
Yes but different colour.
Where did you find this pic?
Isn't that one of the pictures somebody posted from Rafas training sessions lately?
Side note, for once Berdych attire isn't boring. He's sporting this shirt, which is pretty awesome.
It's from Cincinnati last year, during practice.
Since its from last year, its probably an early production sample.
Oh okay, then I am mistaken. I just saw some other training pics in another thread a while ago from other practice sessions. Sorry...
Good point !
Maybe we could soon see Nadal or Fed training with some 2013 gear then !
And only just seen this but ductrung...why exactly have I been lumped in with the likes of 1-3-0 on your ignore list? (if he sees this message)
Somehow I forgot to add you so I did see. Of course you're better than them, but I just dont wanna see a fellow ******* arguing with other trolls and root against other players so passionately
Anyone bought RF gear already ?
How the obsidian SHORT color looks like ??? Is it the same shade as the obsidian Fall 11 short (Paris Masters) or different ?
It's only available in Europe right?
I will post pic of the polo within few days. Still not sure if I will buy the blue crew or not...
Oops, sorry !! By "RF" gear I meant Federer's gear, i.e. obsidian short (no matter if pull-on or RF : I just want to compare color)
If you have the obsidian London 11 polo, I'd like a picture of both side by side, to check if it's the same shade or not. Thanks
No need to sorry haha, I know what you meant.
Too bad I dont have the '11 WTF. *Almost* bought it, but I decided to take the recent Madrid over it
Man, I haven't bought an RF shirt in years. I think my last one might have been the 09 french open polo. Also have the 09 miami polo from that same line. However, I think I'll have to get this polo. The beauty of it justifies the price.
Has anyone got any clothing from the Fall 12 line yet, so so could you post some pics?
Thanks in advance.
Wow those are some see thru shorts!
I got the whole RF night kit (shorts, shoes, polo, jacket, bandana, wristband) - do you want pictures from that?
does people really buy these new line of clothing ? i just wear cheap T-shirts i can get from TW warehouse on sale. Like TW has some nice looking T-shirts for like $5. so i don't really feel like spending $45 for new line of shirts unless i am a pro or something and is going to be on TV
I kind of like playing in an outfit and since it's a bit of a hobby, I allow myself tzo buy such things now and then - yes.
But it's a matter of taste if you want to spend that money on clothes or sth. else. I guess everybody spends some money on sth which others find kind of strange.
looks like rafa wont be wearing these at all now that he pulled out of both =\
Did he also pull out of the other Masters??
