Tennis Identity

Bringing back Rafa’s biceps.

Rafa-Nadal-US-OPEN-2014-NikeRafa’s biceps are back! After remaining under cover since late 2008, it looks like Nike plans to free the buff beauties from short sleeve captivity. That last link shows the first time Rafa wore short sleeves (Jan. 2009).

This is a style we love on Nadal and I’m sure he’s been pushing to bring it back.

We’ll talk more about the tennis apparel later (the look left is expected for the U.S. Open) but damn I’m smiling.

Check out a couple of other players that rock the sleeveless look nicely: Dustin Brown and Gael Monfils.
