FASHION FIX: Incredibly hulking Rafa goes green in Nike

Rafael Nadal finally completed his first round match defeating Thomaz Bellucci 7-5, 6-3, 6-1. Though the 20-year old Brazilian showed glimpses of brilliance, he was no match for the talent of the 3-time defending champion.

Rafa also debuted his new Nike duds for the occasion which I previewed earlier in the season. The "incredibly hulking" Spaniard looked intimidating in the Global Power Sleeveless in light green spark, the Global 3/4 Tennis Pant in olive khaki, and the Air Max Breathe Cage II in classic green, white, and zinc.

Good luck to all pretenders this fortnight.

  1. I'm a bigger fan of the blues that he wears. I like the green, but it makes me think of mint chocolate chip ice cream with those chocolate colored capris. White would have been a better choice for him to roll around in the clay with. Oh well, who am I kidding? He looks great in anything/everything/etc.

  2. i like that it's a bright green - he really stands out on the court

    the blues are good but nike went way over board using it at the end of last year then in the beginning of this one with the boys all wearing the same style - remember? drove me batty.

  3. I love mint chocolate chip ice creams ;) Love Nadal's gear. Stunning and he definitely looks like a winner.
