As a Rafa fan, I don't care much what he wears as long as he has something on lol. I have fond memories with him being sleeveless and also not so fond memories of him losing in sleeveless. I believe he has his reasons WHY he doesn't like sleeves, I'm ok with it. We know how hot and humid it gets in Flushing (believe me I don't live far from there, it's about to get hot again tomorrow).

He was riding that beat like a damn horse! It's ridiculous. (and as iconic as that verse is, he's done much better ones lyrically) which is just astounding and epic.
Was this that verse in his 2003 song (Lose yourself) where he barely seemed to take a breath and was rapping at a really high tempo?

That kit was electric under the lights



One of the best I have seen in a very long time.
NO NO NO NO. As much as i love Rafa...all players should wear all white.

Whats wrong with tradition (apart from the luvvies at SW19 and the clowns in royal box..and queueing..)..

No more games, I'm a change what you call rage
Tear this motherfuckin' roof off like two dogs caged
I was playin' in the beginnin', the mood all changed
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin' and stepwritin' the next cipher
Best believe somebody's payin' the pied piper
All the pain inside amplified by the
Fact that I can't get by with my nine to
Five and I can't provide the right type of
Life for my family 'cause man, these God damn food stamps don't buy diapers
And its no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer
This is my life and these times are so hard
And it's getting even harder tryin' to feed and water my seed, plus
Teeter-Totter caught up between bein' a father and a prima-donna
Baby mama drama screamin' on and too much
For me to want to stay in one spot, another day of monotony’s
gotten
me to the point, I'm like a snail I've got
To formulate a plot fore I end up in jail or shot
Success is my only motherfuckin' option, failures not
Mom, I love you, but this trailer's got to go, I cannot grow old in Salem's lot
So here I go it's my shot
Feet fail me not.... this maybe the only opportunity that I got you bettaaaa


:whistle:
FTFY btw

But Rafa likes sleeveless. He says he feels his movement is more free. He's only ever wore sleeves because Nike wanted him to iirc.

Yes. During his on-court interview with John McEnroe at the 2019 Australian Open, Rafa explained why he is back to wear sleeveless shirts. When he is playing in very warm conditions and hits a buggy whip forehand, the right sleeve is rubbing his arm. That's why he likes to wear sleeveless shirts in hot conditions.
