    ...Nadal is wearing sleeveless shirt for his doubles match against Djokovic and there's no stream. cruel.:(

    why is there never much stream for doubles?
    Oh well. I guess fans will have to hold their anticipation for his "return" till tomorrow.

    That photo's too small to tell anything, but if he's wearing sleeveless again it should be pretty cool.

    EDIT: The photo's bigger now :)

    No capri pants, though?

    Nadal looks great in shirts with no sleeves. :D

    Sleveless is a bad look for Nadal. It shows arrogance from Nike. Rafael Nadal never wore sleveless until Nike told him to. Rafael Nadal is a classy person, but that sleeveless look makes him look like a thug.

    that's everyone else, but all your threads have nothing to do with tennis. just what nadal is wearing, how he looks, blah blah blah.

    I'd prefer that he did it by winning his first singles match. Isn't he trying to reduce his time on court.

  29. Right. Because wearing sleeveless shirts are for children. Athletes, or muscular people should never wear sleeveless.

    Here I'll turn it around.

    "Man he's wearing polos again? I really thought he would ditch the arrogant snob gear..."

    Do you see the problem with these kinds of statements?

    Pathetic that he is playing doubles.. it really is.. guy has injury to his knees, states that he not sure whether his knees will hold, and he comes back playing singles and doubles..

    The next Nadal fan that brings up the fact that Nadal is tired or couldn't move well because of his knees, better realize that it is not the ATP's fault.. it's Nadal's own stupid fault.

    OT:
    I never liked the sleeveless shirts. Hate them, think they are pathetic. Nadal looks very classy with his shirts with sleeves. At least he is not wearing those ridiculous capris. Sleeveless and capris.. now that's an outfit that has nothing to do with tennis.

    aww well sorry to disapoint you but even though you aren't correct, (not all of the threads I start are about what he is wearing and he looks and blah blah) I don't always feel like opening threads like all the others here just so it could end up with he's the goat, he's doing drugs, ban, buttpicker, 15 slams, blah blah blah. After reading all the other threads around here that consist of that, sometimes I feel like something on a lighter note. :)

    anyways...

    translated by google.

    Thanks for the article. Google translation is always hilarious. "The Spanish Duo were imposed on Serbia."

    I once posted here that sleeveless shirt offers better freedom of movement for Nadal in his topspin action. He started having problems once he went to conventional shirts.

    It's settled. Unless Nadal goes back to sleeveless, all of Federer's slams are tainted.

    I like the sleeves-I think they make him look more mature.

    Come on guys. Nadal is wearing polos because he wants to wear polos. Nike is not the bad guy, it's Nadal's decision. It's not like they put a gun to his head and said "Wear these or else."

    Quite pimp, I enjoyed Nadal's sleeveless look anyways. He looked very badass. The sleeves look just kinda frightened me
