Oh dear, oh dear. As if there weren’t enough fashion disasters at the US Open this year already, on Sunday morning my favourite tennis player Rafael Nadal took to the court wearing… fluorescent green! Immediate reactions from family and via text messages from concerned friends:
“What’s wrong with him?”
“He needs a stylist, now!”
I couldn’t agree more. Take a look:
My eyes, my eyes!
Check out an an earlier match in the Grand Slam in which Rafael wore an all-black outfit, with flashes of the same neon green.
Here’s a close-up of his shoes, perfectly coordinated with both his tees, but way too bright.
Meanwhile, Rafa sent his opponent (cute French monsieur Gilles Simon) packing in straight sets. I wonder how much of Rafael Nadal’s victory was to do with him blinding Simon, and how much due to his on-court prowess. But as a Rafa fangirl, I believe it’s mostly the latter. 🙂
Meanwhile, check out last year’s US Open fashion report.
PS—More US Open fashion disasters to come! Stay tuned.
