FASHION FIX: Nadal gets the (Nike) blues

Change up: Our philanthropic friend, Rafael Nadal, is the top seed at this week's wordiest tourney: the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament 2008 (are all those words really necessary?) Anyways, the World No. 2 moved into the second round after defeating Russian Dmitry Tursunov 6-4, 6-4 in their first-ever meeting. He'll take on Italian Andreas Seppi in the next round.

Now, if you recall I wrote in length about how much I disliked Rafa's Aussie Open Nike gear - something about 'roadkill'. But I'm def liking this version - it's still the Global Power Sleeveless top and Global 3/4 pant, but the shades of blue mixed with white + grey are much more appealing than the orange-red + grey disaster from earlier in the season. I'd still love to see a more interesting, innovative design on the shirt than the tire track mess, but all in all much better.
