The 2017 finalist is hoping the youthful feeling of his throwback style will give him the good health he had a decade ago. A knee injury forced the Spaniard out of Brisbane and left him with only two lead-up exhibition matches going into Melbourne.
He has been practicing frequently in sleeveless Nike tanks ahead of tournaments, with the first Slam of 2018 being no different.
The 16-time Grand Slam champion gave fans a sneak peek of his match outfit for the upcoming fortnight, practicing in a grey tank ahead of his first match on Monday.
Nadal's match on Monday took just one hour and 34 minutes.
