rafael nadal is the incredible hulk

June 1, 2008

Bulging biceps. Bright green. An unstoppable force.

Rafael Nadal builds on his reputation as The Incredible Hulk of Roland Garros with another straight-set win at the clay court slam. He beat an ailing Fernando Verdasco (leg injury) 6-1, 6-0, 6-2.

A close-up of the special Air Max Breathe Cage II that Nike made for Rafa. It has three logos representing the three French Open singles titles he has in the bag. Colors are zinc (metallic) and green.

His white and green hoodie.

A closer look at his pirate pants and wristbands.

The designers at Nike have stepped up the graphic detail on the back of the Power tank. Kudos to them.

Buy: Wristbands, spark green, $10; bandana, spark green/zinc, $12; Air Max Breathe Cage II, white/black/zinc/green, $115; Summer Global 3/4 pant, olive/spark green, $55; Global Power Sleeveless Top, spark green, $55.
