You also have to give all those cameramans and photographers much
credit who made Rafa appear like that.

I wasn't commenting on the color combo. He has changed his
'untamed mustang' look to a more 'genteel' look of a champion.
Did you notice that his biceps don't look so intimidating now?
I doubt if he would look as menacing in sleeveless tops now.

You could have dropped off the 'for anyone bar Bjorn' part too.
I know he was pretty popular at his peak, but so is everyone.
Hairy Borg looked quite effeminate in those clothes.

Rafa's old look suited his 'young rebel challenger' image.
Now that he's the #1, he's made a good transition into
clothes befitting a champion. The hair are shorter, the
frame appears leaner and less muscular and the biceps
look less pronounced too. I like Rafa's new look.
I wish he'd switched to a different brand of underwear, though.

you think that yellow and white t-shirt is a good look?! he could look so
much better and should return to his trademark sleeveless top.

I know he was pretty popular at his peak, but so is everyone.

His old clothes were obviously getting in the way of his tennis.

I think it is mostly the sponsor calculations. Nike couldn't have been
selling a whole lot of Nadal's clothes in the past. Most normals would
look like John McEnroe in them, i.e. ridiculous.

I've seen exactly two guys in the local clubs with the Rafa attire,
including the Babolat Rafa frame and extreme Western grip. But it's
a dumb look for anybody else and you're right: I can't see anyone
with a brain in their head buying into the look.

You think that's bad we used to have guys dress up exactly the same as
Borg - now that's a fucking dumb look for anyone bar Bjorn.

How many people have you seen with other players' clothing, though? No one
in my club wears anything from the current crop. There are some with the
Reebok cross-striped shirts that Chang/Nandlikova/ASV/Sukova et al wore
back in the late 1980s. But that's about it, though there is one guy who
dresses like a cricketer, very reminiscent of the Fred Perry days.

Well, it's hard to say really. On the men's side, Rafa is the only
one who wears such a distinctive cut of pants (although Blake and
some others do the sleeveless look).

Juniors boys and girls seem to stay current in the clothing, although
neither of the two guys I saw in pirate pants was a junior. Junior
girls all seem to be trying to out-Sharapova each other, except for a
few in much more businesslike Henin attire.

The middle aged folks such as myself are much less fashion forward.

Quite a few players in my club wear fairly modern stuff which has been
worn by the top players.

I have the blue Safin AO 2005 adidas outfit which I still wear quite a
bit and I've seen that shirt worn by a few other people.

OK. I dislike advertising clothing, so all my stuff is plain sweat pants,
shorts, and polo shirts sourced from places like Land's End.

Bizarrely, shortly/right after that post by Scott, all SPS posts
became invisible to me (and they still are). It happens just on
firefox, not IE. So it might be a glitch in my firefox-only ggroups
killfile filter, even though SPS is explicitly not on my ggroups
killfile filter. I haven't uninstalled the killfile/greasemonkey
script yet to really test it out. So as it stands, I haven't been
reading any SPS posts for a while on firefox. Sometimes when I am on
IE, only then I can see the stuff he writes.

So you haven't been seeing his posts since July? I was confused because I
thought you had meant he had said it recently and since I couldn't remember
that I was wondering if my newreader was filtering something out. At any
rate, those kinds of hacks are pretty fragile and could break easily under
various conditions. You would do well to get a news service, the GG
interface makes it a nightmare to find all recent activity in threads
without a lot of backtracking.

I don't think it serves a purpose to educate Arnab on activity enhancing
equipment.

It felt bizarre a few minutes ago, but it has to be some sort of
coincidence.

Another ongoing bizarre thing is how ggroups is filtering out all
posts by SauPauloSwallow for me (this happened right after Scott
humorously mentioned in a post that SPS should be in my killfile),
even though he is explicitly not in my killfile. I have turned off the
killfile script to test it and his posts still don't show up. This
happens only on firefox, though. I can see SPS's posts on IE.

I think these are just stupid glitches.

The real odd thing is that I have been reading a lot of German stuff
for the past few days. I had been reading German materials for a few
hours straight before the change happened. So it had a sort of
supernatural feel to it. It was as if Google knew I was thinking in
German for the past few hours so it decided to change the interface. I
don't know whether my post to Wendy had any part in it. :)

Apparently Skynet became self-aware at 2:14 am EDT August 29, 1997

Fortunately it didn't want to start a full scale thermonuclear assault
on human race but got interested in tennis and chose to began posting in
tennis related newsgroups using an alias called "Whisper". It's mission
is to convince humankind that Petros Sampras is the greatest tennis
player that ever lived by constantly advocating it's genius prestige
based value system on impotance of the Grand Slam tournaments.

It is also believed that Skynet has sent one of it's terminators back in
time to make sure that Roger Federer would never win French Open during
a very weak era when there were no good fast or claycourt players.

Nope. My Gmail and Google News interfaces remained changed. I go out
for breakfast, come back and boom! It's all in German. It's just odd.
Unless I have been sleep-surfing or something.

Strange. Google Groups has just now automatically changed my interface
language to German without asking me first, and I wonder if it's
because I wrote a little German in that post above. Bizarre.
