Rafa Nadal Debuts New Look in Monte Carlo Title Run
It was a surprise to no one, but Rafa Nadal’s dominance at the 2018 Monte Carlo Masters still has to be admired. He raced through all five of his matches without dropping a set, eventually defeating Kei Nishikori in the final, by a score of 6-3 6-2. Equally striking was Nadal’s new on-court look, which will surely be regarded as one of the most iconic fashion pieces he has worn in his career. With the Men’s Rafa Court Aeroreact Tennis Top, Nike has crafted a winning look for Nadal and his fans.
Rafa’s clay-court tennis top for 2018 boasts the style and performance we’ve all come to expect from Nike. Aeroreact technology responds to your body to keep you cool and dry on the court. But what really struck me about Rafa’s shirt was its color; the laser orange looks great against the slightly darker tones of the red clay. It also matches well with his red-and-yellow Babolat Decima Pure Aero racquet, blending the colors of the Spanish flag together to create a cool three-tone scheme. Nadal has abandoned the sleeveless look that he sported early in his career and revived during his championship run at the 2017 U.S. Open. He’s replaced it with a simple, classic match crew that’s just as uniquely Rafa, thanks to its tight fit and large Nike swoosh at the center of the chest.
You can picture yourself winning a few Grand Slams in this, can’t you?
Will Rafa Nadal hoist yet another French Open trophy this year? He has quite a few matches to play in the meantime, but early signs suggest he’ll be just as dominant on clay this year as he was in 2017, when he went 24-1 on the surface. However Nadal’s clay season unfolds, you’ll want to make sure you get your hands on his gear, so you can look equally sharp on the court.
