Rafa gets beat by Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open marathon for his third straight Grand Slam loss and then Cristiano Ronaldo bests him at tennis using only his Mercurial Vapor shoes. What's he supposed to do to win?
If the message is that the Mercurial Vapour VIII can switch on mad soccer skills just by wearing them they could not do better than Nadal. The world no. 2 was a soccer standout in his days, a nephew of Miguel Angel Nadal, aka "The Beast of Barcelona", for his fearsome physical presence in midfield and the back four.
The Mercurial Vapour VIII was released to the public yesterday and should set customers back by $200. No guarantees you will play like Cristiano Ronaldo. But with Leo Messi around, does anyone want to? Just being cheeky.
