Blue is a many splendored speedo



The blue of the water,
the blue of the sky,
the blue of the speedo,
so good for my eye.



Rafael Nadal Parera


Rafael Nadal from the official site:

New York, August 27 2009

Earlier today Nike blocked off Broadway between 22nd and 23rd Streets and constructed a pop-up tennis court, where three of the sport's top players — Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Serena Williams — showed off their new U.S. Open ensembles and hit some balls with a few lucky kids from four different inner-city programs.


The reigning Australian Open champ, sported a exotic yellow polo shirt, matching wristbands and cool a fluro-blue head piece at the Nike event where he got to mentor/coach kids from the New York Junior Tennis League, Athletes for Charity, Mentoring USA and the New York City Parks Foundation, which each received $10,000 donations from Nike. Needless to say, the kids were psyched about their encounters with the gracious, and brightly dressed, tennis legends — not to mention all the free Nike gear.


After the event, Rafa said he felt "more prepared" than he expected to be for the U.S. Open, which begins next Monday.


"I think I came to New York much better than expected. I am very happy to be back competing in this city and will train [the best I can] so that I can [start the tournament] with the best possible preparations, then we'll see what happens."

"I am No.3 in the world. And the No.3 in the world should have a chance to win, no?" said Rafa, "But I don't know if I arrived in my best condition."


"After an injury, sure, you think about it a little bit," he continued,"But I am much better, I feel."


"It's a very special tournament. I've won the other three [Grand Slams], so if I win this one it's going to be a complete cycle," he said. "It [would] be amazing."
