    If that was acting better, he truly was a classless idiot before then. Lopez seems to be a pretty decent guy. Roddick screams and yells and raised hell at the umpire when he didn't his way. Knowing me, I probably would have called him out on it had I had the pleasure of playing him. I used to coach I guy named Amit Taggert who was his big rival in the juniors. Amit said that Roddick was an absolute jerk and they nearly got into it everytime they played.

    I totally agree - tank tops look stunning on Nadal.

    There was always Agassi's XXXXS shorts which looked - and there's no other way to say this - gay.

    ^Well, he was from an earlier era where men unfortunately thought short shorts were okay...
    I mean, speaking as a teenager, Old men wearing shorts over their knee's looks really weird, and middle aged men, would look probably as ridiculous.
    Now, its definetly a lot better, but Aggasi's denim shorts were just unthinkable..

    True, but I think the era of short shorts had long passed by the time agassi wore them. Apart from Becker, his opponents never wore them.

    Actually, Agassi came onto the scene when short shorts made his denim ones look like bermuda shorts. It was bad! Shorts were pretty darn short until about 1991 or 1992. I had a bad, bad, bad experience at a major junior tournament back in 1990 where, after I split stepped coming into the net, a part of me decided to say hello to the crowd. I remember the gasp and the giggles from people watching. I was thoroughly embarrassed and longer shorts to at least mid thigh are in my tennis attire forever more.

    i don't think it's the old part that makes short shorts look unusual. can you imagine if Nadal wore Aggasi shorts lol. Men should leave short stuff for women.

    ^Lol agreed. Except for short sleeves as in tank tops which Nadal wears very well.
    I've had this really weird question for all the men here?

    Does wearing shorts over your knees make it harder to run??? Because most of the players, excepting Nadal of course, but even he keeps them high), have them higher their knees.

    It depends how far below the knees you are talking about. Nadal used to wear the bermuda shorts but they were perfectly fitted so that it didn't restrict movement. His current length shorts I find ideal when I play. Most players wear shorts that end above the knee simply out of tradition and convention or because it's what they are accustomed to.

    ^Say about, totally covering the kneecap.

    Lol, I'm glad nothing is too short for me, excepting Venus Williams' "illusion", and outfit..
    I'm actually a pretty conservative person, so my shorts usually cover like 1/4- 3/8 of my calves.

    it does for me. i like to wear them at or slightly above the knee cap just for agility purposes. when i'm chilln, my shorts will be an inch or two below the knee cap. so are you saying that when you play tennis, you wear shorts that are below then knee by 3 or 4 inches? also, guys and girls shorts are obviously different. you probably wear something tight.. and i would think that would hinder your game even more than what guy 'long' shorts would.

    i wonder if this has anything to do with Rafa's knee problem?..

    ^No, i think you misunderstood me. My shorts cover like 3/8 of my entire legs, like from hips to feet.

    I doubt wearing shorts could cause Nadal to injure himself, unless he fell down like reallt badly
