Don't look now but Rafa's famous clam diggers seem to be creeping upward. Pete, a Nadal apologist, says the guy does his own laundry and simply left the pants in the dryer too long. I say he's finally come to his senses and is going to stop dressing like a peasant boy.
I do dig the pewter pants and tennis-ball yellow shirt. But, as Pete points out, the color could be a distinct advantage, distorting your opponent's view of the ball. In fact, Leyton Hewitt even onced lodged a complaint along those lines, but we all know his history on issues of color.
Maria Sharapova isn't the only woman in red. Check out Justine Henin. If she grows a couple feet, she'll look just like Maria.
