According to Spanish publication Marca, Rafael Nadal will return to sleevelessness for the first time in ten years when he takes the court in Melbourne next week.
Our champ was well-known for his sleeveless shirts in the early part of his career, but abandoned the look at the 2009 Australian Open.
Marca reports that his shirt will be inspired by the sunset colors and after Nike sees how it goes they will see should Rafa play sleeveless in some other tournaments this year. Did Jordi Robert ‘Tuts’ (Rafa’s assistant at Nike, responsible for designing his looks each season) really give this information to Marca? We don’t know but very soon we’ll know what Rafa will wear in Melbourne.
