    This is awesome. Seeing it photo-montaged helps people see how it looks in different surfaces, seasons. i.e. clay season US Open etc. etc. It's perfect.

    On your Instagram are you going to add photo options? IMO they look great.

    Pretty much every shoe colourway you have done is better than the ones Nike has done in the last few years. I like that there are some options where the shoe is majority white or black with some pops of colour.

    Also, Nike where they have patterns on their shoes always looks ugly, whereas you have done some texture / pattern designs where it looks great. Nike designers should take note.

    Thanks Guy ! ;)

    The choice of colors is really personal. What pleases me or pleases you will not necessarily please the others... That's like that. But I try to do my best with these designs. Thanks for your encouragement !

    Oh Hell !! It was a disaster in my world when Agassi has signed with Adidas, and i don't want to live that once again ! :))
    But actually Adidas is sometimes pretty good, but my heart is on Nike side ;)

    When is the last time Nike had Rafa in red with also a red pirata? Seems like it is a long time. That look would also be incredible for sure at AO and also USO against the blue backgrounds.

    Thanks for the compliment ;) Not planned at this time but why not ?!

    Thanks ! It could be better with more shadows and reflects, but this work is too long ! ;)

    Last time in total red was in FO 2012 I think... AO 2014 red blue and gray...

    like the above poster said, last time i recall was french open 2012, but this version looks even better, i actually preferred that outfit when rafa wore it in halle that year because he was using the red matching bandana and not the anthracite one, looked much stronger

    Hi Dude, For me, the important thing is to achieve a color balance between the shirt, the short, the shoes, and accessories (Head band, Wristband and socks).

    If you look at the actual outfit of Rafa (Monte-Carlo Clay), something is wrong, no ?
    The shirt, purple and orange is ok (same colors as the FO 1991 ;) ), Eventually Orange shoes (could have been better), but why White short, and black socks head and wristband ?!!
    Bad choice really, really...o_O

    Imagine you keep the shirt and the short, It could be better if the Head and wristband were Purple with orange swoosh, the socks orange with white swoosh, and just changing color of the swoosh on short (it works with purple and orange).
    Black color is not essential in this case.
    I don't understanding NIKE this time...

    yes man i have been scratching my head this week when i watch him play, it looks weird overall because of all those colors trying to catch eachother, white short and black bandana and also black socks, all those thing should be same color i think otherwise it seems like alot, kind of like in 2015 when fed played indian wells i think he had a different color everything from top to bottom

    Monte Carlo - Yes, Yes, Yes!! I especially like the way the colours all come together in the shoes, which gives the outfit synchronicity/homogeneity, unlike what we've been seeing from Nike themselves lately. Probably prefer a Roman numeral 'X' for 'la decima', instead of '10', on the shoes, but whatever.

    Looking for tennis ball in the foliage
    A little bit of plagiarism with the Fed Aussie 2014 kit. But still, many more fun colour combos.

    Allez Greg!

    ^^^^^^^^ That looks sweet. Classic, basic colors that never go out of style.

    Now, take that black and trim it out with gray (Raiders Colors) and I am buying multiple sets of the entire kit!!
