FASHION FIX: Rafa returns with win, debuts new Nike design

Rafael Nadal, like Federer, played his first match since his Wimbledon triumph at the Rogers Masters but this one, unlike Federer's, went according to plan.

The 5-time Grand Slammer started slowly against American Jesse Levine, going down 1-4 in the opening set, but got his game in gear and took a easy 6-4, 6-2 decision.

Rafa also debuted a new Nike Dri-Fit Power Sleeveless design in cobalt blue that features something resembling claw marks (are those yours Fed?) on the front. For shorts, the Spaniard is still working his lucky Longer Length Short in white which he wore during his run to the Wimby title.

Nice change up - solid blue color - not trying too hard. I like!

  1. Me likey! LOVE that color of blue. Now if he'd only wear short shorts...

  2. I don't like the claw marks, but I love the blue.

    I vote for short shorts for the final! :D

  3. one day rafa should bust out full-on soccer gear a la ReRe at the French in ' what he wore in the ITF Olympic book with the pulled up socks and the shorty-shorts.


  4. (Lurker anon): So those are CLAW MARKS! I never understood the design hahaha. They look misplaced, like they should have been at the back and positioned in the opposite direction, like wings. AH DUNNO hahaha. I'd have preferred a plain blue top.
