FASHION FIX: Rafa crushes Kolya while stylish evolution begins - can you handle it?


Okay Rafanatics - brace yourselves.

The evolution of Rafael Nadal's style is officially beginning but isn't complete just yet. He's still working the Nike Cages (which will be replaced with the new-fangled Air Max Courtballistecs - so exciting!) but he's finally broken out the Bold Stripe Polo Shirt from their Holiday Collection and the Longer Length Short in white on-court (which we saw him practice in recently.)

It seems the top baller's trademark sleeveless and capri shorts have been sent to pasture (or eBay) for good. Can you stand it?


(Hello headlights!)
Oh yeah, the match: Rafa will be facing Brit baller Andy Murray in the final of the Abu Dhabi exo after he crushed Nikolay Davydenko 6-2, 6-3 and Andy outlasted a facetious Roger Federer earlier in the day.

Great start to the year boys!

PS - Here's a post-match interview from today. CHECK IT:

I agree. Rafa in a collar is just not right. It's like an El Camino, trying to be both a car and a truck but ends up being less than each.

yeah he will be...this is from Nike's holiday collection out now while the crew necks are from spring '09 which he's supposed to be wearing at the aussie open.

can't give it all away too soon!

I thought Rafa was going to wear the crew necks. I don't like Nadal with a collar on the court.
