    So my blindly-purchased short that Nadal is wearing recently arrived today and guess what? The usual hook was not there anymore! Only two tiny velcro piece are there to keep the short from falling down. And it doesn't help that it's wider fitting than the RF short as well. Try them on and feel like that I have to redo them like after every service if i don't wanna look like a stripper on the court.

    Hell yeah I know that it's mostly my fault too, but I really wonder what Nike was thinking that make them design this type of closure for a short??? No button, no drawcord, no hook, 2 pieces of velcro yes...

    So you're talking about the 2012 line. Right ?
    It's interesting as I plan to buy a GREY Nadal short soon, and I hesitate between Winter 2011 and Summer 2012...
    If the 2012 line has no hook, it's just no good :(

    Did you try it then? Is it efficient enough ?
    I guess Nadal wear the same model (I doubt he wear a custom one with hook) and he doesn't seem to have any trouble with it.

    If you think this will not hold, sew a hook and eye onto it. Not too hard; even a guy should be able to sew that much!

    I just realised that USA don't have shorts with zip closure for Federer and Nadal, like we have in Europe !
