it’s a gas!: put some neon in your spring

March 28, 2011

Rafa‘s back in graphic print at this week’s Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. The design’s nothing to write home about — another nod to that rebel/youth market that Nike‘s had since Agassi — but we paid attention to the green and yellow meshy overlay on the Courtballistecs. Still, there are some who want tenis a la Nadal, so here you go: Nike Rafa Tennis Crew, $85; Courtballistec 3.3, $125; Rafa Tennis Jacket, $90.

Spanish brawl: Rafa took care of Kei Nishikori and will next face fellow Spaniard Feli Lopez for a spot in the Round of 16. (See the SEO draws.)

Browse: That green and yellow has us thinking about how to spruce up our spring with colors of the Hi-liter rainbow — read on!

flashback: rafa and roger take miami

March 28, 2011

Remember these fellas? This was Roger and Rafa‘s second meeting ever, a year after Rafa had beaten Rog 3 and 3 in the third round at Miami. Nadal led this final two sets to love only to fall 2-6, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-1. Nadal would win their next five encounters before falling to Federer in the 2006 Wimbledon final.
