Rafael Nadal Nike Roland Garros Paris Open
And suddenly we are in Paris…well almost but here's what Nike has planned for Rafael Nadal this year at Roland Garros. The guy loves color and comfort. He also appears to like a little creative edge given the graphics that are appearing on his shirts in surprising ways. Makes him all the more intriguing.

Nadal's shirt, the Tierra crew ($65 USD), is a beautiful photo blue that will be stunning against clay. It's a Dri-Fit striped jacquard crew (stripe is woven in) with a slight v-neck. ¡Vamos Rafa! is imprinted in white on the inside of the neck. The Nadal bull insignia is centered within a Moorish style print on the lower back which breaks out to drift up the back .

The shorts (Summer Woven, $65) are pretty classic in cut with a zipper, hook and bar clasp and velcro closure. Nothing's coming undone here no matter how hard you play. Rafa prefers a longer short. These are 12".

Everything is super lightweight and fast drying. Ventilation panels in key places allow a release of heat. Seams are bonded, not sewn, to prevent chafing. 

Rafael Nadal Tennis Shoes Roland Garros Rafa's tennis shoes are the newest version of the Nike Air Max Courtballistic 3.3, $125, more durable than ever. They are designed for the power player that's seriously rough on shoes.
