    I am 6'0 130 and all my shorts are either too wide at the waist or inches above my knees. What are the best shorts for me?

    Take a look at the description on tennis warehouse and look at the length for the inseam and outer seam on the shorts.
    I'm tall and skinny. I'm a couple inches taller than you and about 30 pounds heavier. I usually buy shorts in a size medium with and inseam of 9-10 inches and an outer seam of 20-21 inches and they go down to the top of my knees.

    Tennis shorts are supposed to be above the knee, despite the capris that Nadal used to wear.

    If you get a 9" inseam short, it should be the standard look these days. If you don't like the standard look, you could try to get 10 or 11" inseam shorts in the proper waist size. I think it is going to be difficult to find the old Nadal-style shorts/capris if you totally want to cover your knees.

    Men's shorts seem slightly shorter this summer.
