Who wore what? Style Points breaks down the latest collabs, kits and fashion statements from around the tennis world.
This past Sunday in Paris, 36-year-old Rafael Nadal triumphed once again on Court Philippe-Chatrier, clinching an astonishing 14th Roland Garros title. The win also extended his lead in the Grand Slam race by two, with an Open Era record 22nd major title.
As if to drive home just how massive of a feat it was, Nadal’s victory took place 17 years to the day and on the same courts as his very first Grand Slam win back in 2005.
Back then, that scrappy teenager from Mallorca took the world by storm—not just with his world-beating tennis, but with a head-turning, swashbuckling Nike outfit that would quickly become his signature look.
But nearly two decades later, that kid is all grown up—and so is his on-court style.
In honor of Nadal’s victory, Style Points breaks down his Roland Garros-winning style: from the first in 2005, all the way to the 14th in 2022.
