    I think he is wearing them a bit shorter now, and they look pretty good. What do you reckon?

    I was told by a Nike employee that he doesn't wear the capris at Wimbledon because of the lower bounce of the ball. The capris are restricting when having to bend for low shots.

    The shorts he was wearing look a lot better than his capris, at least to this American. I still think they'd look better if they were shorter.

    Rafa and his shorts.....

    I thought he wore capris all the time, because every time he goes to serve he pulls them down like he has a wedgie or something :confused: :p

    Let the Europeans wear them. I don't want to be sweating and grabbing at my shorts every point.

    If you're self-consious in public, then definitely do not wear the capris.

    I hear they make you pick your Butt.

    A habit you might not want to copy.

    ahve you ever wondered how nadal would look in like regular pants?

    i think the capris actually fit him in terms of style.

    i just couldn't imagine seeing him showing off his amazing thighs with some actual shorts.

    just not that rugged look he reminds me of

    I have no problem bending down to hit low shots in those capris, but then again i bought them one size too big, and plus i don't have a habit of picking my butt between points.

    I own a pair of the capris and they don't cause a wedgie problem at all. They are a bit tight in the buttocks area, though.

    Maybe it's Rafa's undies that give him the wedgie.
