Nadal Wins French Open With His Shortest Shorts Ever

Rafael Nadal, The King of Clay, just captured his record 8th French Open Title in Paris on Sunday. Does his continually shrinking shorts have anything to do with his continual dominance? You be the judge.

2009

Nadal makes significant changes to his wardrobe, and it proves costly. Fully exposed knees and the addition of short sleeves. His 10" inseam is upset in the 4th round by Robin Söderling. Are the capris the source of his power?

2010

No. He wins the title again in 2010. It appears his shorts are slightly lower than the year before, but specific measurements weren't taken. Nadal wins his first full-knee-exposed French Open.

2013

With his most risky short-raising since the 2009 loss, Nadal goes to a 8" inseam. He wins his record 8th French Open title. What will the future hold for the shorts of the greatest clay court tennis player ever?
