    Maybe the Clothin sponsor for witzerland is Nike? For Belgium it's Adidas, for Denmark it seems Vero Moda?

    And all of the RF fans here wait in anguish to hear what their hero will be wearing. Lord help some of them if he has to wear a top made by someone else other than Nike.

    I am sure this has all been worked out with the companies. You don't really think the Olympics just sprang a surprise on what everyone is going to be wearing do you.

    and is legal in any size):

    I assume you are referring to Rafael Nadal. The same Rafael Nadal who's not playing in this year's Olympics correct?

    So, does this mean they will all be playing with blacked out racquets and no stencils on the strings?

    The question is just that anyone knows why they wear a shirt with the country sponsor, and the shorts from their own brand. ;)
