2015 marks ten years since Rafael Nadal took the world by storm and won his first ever Grand Slam. Nadal has continued to dominate the tennis world along with Federer. However, in this ten-year span his fashion has changed tremendously.
At the 2015 Australian Open, Nadal will debut a 7-inch short. A stark contrast to the three quarter Capri pants he wore to win his first Roland Garros title. Nike has gone for a retro look with a modern twist in its Nadal spring collection. The white short shorts will be paired with a neon pink crew neck that brings back a hint of the 80’s disco scene colors.
Nike has designed an ensemble for Roger Federer that celebrates the colors of Australian sport. He will be donning a neon yellow crew with a green fade on both the front and back of the shirt. Federer will also be sporting the daring 7-inch shorts in a gray tone with green stripes down the side.
