    Hey there,

    I'd like to know the fit of this top, the purple one, compared with, for example, the black 2012 US open crew.

    Thanks!

    Body fits about the same. Fabric is a little thicker in the front and then mesh-y in the back.

    Thanks!

    I'm going to Brasil Open to watch Nadal play and was thinking of wear the right suit for the occasion. Needed to know the right size first, tough!

    Rafa definitely has a share of fanatics who are a cause of amusement and curiosity to others.

    Seemed a little more fitted than the other Nadal crews, ever so slightly.

    Length is about the same as the prior Nadal crews.

    Mike Lupica back when he was writing in World Tennis in the late 70s had a great quote about this - he said " I will never understand why tennis fans show up all decked out in full tennis gear looking ready to play......I never had the desire to show up at a Jets or Giants game in full pads and cleats."

    TW's Facebook page was trumpeting Rafa's earth-shattering shorter shorts...I wonder if this will prove to be a seismic moment for 'Nadboiz who will now flock to "normal" length shorts:

    The more things change, the more things stay the same etc?
