The 2011 U.S. Open is set to kick off next Monday, August 29th, and Nike Tennis athlete Rafael Nadal is prepped for the final leg of the 2011 Grand Slam with his Nike Air Max Courtballistec 3.3. Rafa will certainly look to repeat as U.S. Open champion in 2011, but this time, he won’t have the #1 ranking; he relinquished that top spot to Novak Djokovic, but Nadal, who is now ranked #2, will surely meet him in the Championship round for a match-up of epic proportions. The Air Max Courtballistec 3.3 boasts a wide array of top-flight Nike tech, like springy yet responsive Lunarlon cushioning, Max Air heel comfort, and lock-down fit thanks to the off-center lacing, so expect Nadal to be in good hands when he takes the court next week. Nikestore has a number of colorways of the Air Max Courtballistec 3.3. available now so head there to get yours and let us know if you Nadal has what it takes to regain the #1 spot and repeat as U.S. Open champ!
