Citrusy Federer & Nadal in Miami

Down in Miami for the Sony Ericsson Open, Nike brought out the citrusy fashion for their two top tennis players. Rafael Nadal is lemony in yellow complete with blue accessories and yellow/white plaid shorts. Roger Federer breaks out of his usual blue/red/black preferences to give us a refreshing orange collarless shirt offset by white.

Huge thumbs up from me on both kits especially following their less than exciting choices in Indian Wells last week. For a reminder, Federer wore a nice, but drab red/gray combination while Nadal was half awesome/half awful with his candy inspired shirt and tacky inspired shorts...

Here's to hoping better fashion means better results. Last week, Federer lost to Marcos Baghdatis in the third round and while Nadal reached the semifinals, he has been title-less since Madrid last year. Both made it through their first match this week, something last year's finalists Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray can't say.

Will we finally get a Federer-Nadal final since May of last year? It's felt much longer than that, that's for sure.
