“It’s always a fun challenge when I work with Nike Tennis to create looks and clothing that let me express myself and my unique style while respecting the tournament. What I wear on-court is a key part of my advantage out there, so we focus on making my dress lightweight and allowing for full movement while not compromising on style.”
“The goal for my footwear and apparel is always lightness, comfort and style. What I’m wearing has to look good, be as breathable as possible and let me be faster to the ball. “You can see in what I’m wearing for London that we’ve honored the tradition and elegance of this tournament, but that there is still real innovation in the fabrics and tailoring of my apparel that reflects my personal style and gives me the best chance of winning.”
14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal will compete in London wearing the 2014 Premier Rafa Crew, redesigned Nike Premier Rafa Jacket, and the Nike Gladiator Premier 7-inch Shorts.

It reminds me of the Hawaiian shorts Pat Rafter wore in the 90’s. Do you like Tomas’ outfit?
He made a really wise business decision to part with Nike, he’s not just another Nike sponsored athlete anymore: he is H&M first tennis ambassador, collaborates with the company design team to develop the collection, and makes a name for himself.
Prior to Roland Garros tournament, Tomas visited the H&M Champs Elysees store in Paris to meet fans and celebrate the launch of his updated tennis collection. Check out the collection on H&M website.
