Roger Federer is quite possibly the best tennis player ever, with his rival Rafael Nadal among the all-time greats himself. Rafa had dominated their matches on clay but lost an upset in the semifinals that prevented a 2008 rematch and allowed Federer to win his first French Open last year, completing his career Grand Slam. To say this is the best rivalry in tennis this past decade is a gross understatement, and it turns out that Nike is lucky enough to have both of these future hall of famers on their roster.
We’re sure the Swoosh is hoping this doesn’t turn out like MVPuppets, but they’re releasing a 2010 Roland Garros Pack that includes full outfits for both racqueteers. Nadal’s look is decidedly brighter with a polygonal Dri-Fit shirt in bright colors and a matching Nike Air Max Courtballistec 2.3. Federer goes with a simpler teal polo and white shorts that nicely compliment his white/obsidian LunarLite Vapor Tour lowtops. You’ll have to wait till next Monday to start charting these tennis giants’ progress toward an epic rematch, but the Air Max Courtballistec 2.3 and LunarLite Vapor Tour from the Roland Garros Pack are both available now on eBay. via HB
