VIDEO VAULT: Rafa shows off new Nike kicks, sits for documentary special

Here are a couple of videos of the world's top baller, Rafael Nadal, that circulated last week that you may or may not have seen.

The first one shows the Mallorcan Matador fit-testing some of the new Nike kicks for the 2009 season.

In the video he's wearing the Men's Bold Stripe Polo Shirt from the sport brand's Holiday Collection and wear-testing the new Air Max Courtballistecs from the 2009 Spring Collection which he'll be wearing at the Aussie Open next month.


It's great to see Rafa actually wearing some of this new gear and it looks really good so far. I can't wait to see the rest of the collection on him.

The second video was taken from a 4-hour Christmas special on Rafa which featured a 1 1/2 hour interview followed by 2 1/2 documentary about his life all in Catalan. Here's the first of five videos from the special:

PS - Seriously, am I the only one out there who can't wait for the 2009 season to begin?


  1. Nope Rich, you are not the only one ; ) One thing that Im looking forward to see its the Wimbledon roof done, and no more rain suspensions during that tournament.

  2. wimby with a roof will be truly jarring but i won't miss all of the rain delays...

  3. No, Rich, you're not thee only one who can't wait for theese game to begin!! Contessa ChiChi has been patiently waiting for theese day to come; Rafa can't wait to begin the year off with a win and Contessa ChiChi will be there to cheer my Ruffie on towards victory>, too! Let's all propel rafa on to another victorious year, si!

    Ces't si Bon!

  4. Haha! Love it Contessa ChiChi and love the blog BTW. Good stuff.

    Yes, I think tennis fans everywhere are anxiously awaiting for the first balls to be struck *sigh*

  5. I can't agree with you on Rafa's new clothing, Rich. I firmly believe Mr. Nadal needs to be showing more skin, not less. It's important for the sport!


    Happy almost-new year!

  6. Libby: LOL! Hey I'm the one who's been pushing for a shirts vs. skins policy on the newly-named ATP World Tour. Whaddya think? *imagines shirtless, muddies Rafa sliding around Phillipe Chatrier and faints*

  7. You're definitely not the only one! I just posted a comment on another post (before I saw this post) saying how impatient I am for the new season to start. Still, not long to go now really, although Melbourne will probably be my best real opportunity to see any matches. Grr!

  8. Rich, you wrote, "Yes, I think tennis fans everywhere are anxiously awaiting for the first balls to be struck" and Ruffie just said "..and I hope they're not mine first off." He said one has to bee careful how one words enthusiasmy for theese game to begin.. weeth an added "ouch" just for emphaseeses, ok, now? *wink*

  9. Contessa ChiChi: Yes, one must always be wary of ball striking - even on court. 1 Ruffie, 0 RiCH

  10. I didn't like the shoes in photos, but seeing them in motion i LOVE them. I think he looks so young. :)

    I AM READY!!
