Q. I have to ask, do you like those Nike shorts that you've got now? They're certainly different.

RAFAEL NADAL: What do you think? You like it? (laughter)
No, no? Well, it's different. I think -- yeah, I don't know. It's more different than usual. (laughter.) That's the thing, no?
It was a little bit fashion for me, I think. Is too much, a little bit for me, but going to be for this tournament.

Q. Just for this tournament?

RAFAEL NADAL: Yeah. I change everything in Miami.

Q. Many people liked the pink shirt at Roland Garros last year. They thought it was very, very nice. But because of the result we won't see that shirt anymore?

RAFAEL NADAL: No, no, no, I'm not superstitious on that. The color of the shirt doesn't affect anything of the game. So no, we will see in the future. I don't know. I don't know.
Similar color will be this year, but not at Roland Garros.

みなさん、これは今回だけの着用のようですので、ひと安心ですねw。でも二度と見られないと思うとある意味貴重かも?? ナダルはウェアのジンクスはあまり気にしないようですね。まぁ気にしてたとしても、あんまりそういうことは口にしないかな。そういえば、ナダルはウェアのことを聞かれると、いつも「どう思う?」って聞き返しているような。
