IS NIKE'S COOLMINT GREEN THE NEW BLACK?

Is every player sponsored by Nike required to wear their ugly green gear under penalty of 3 years work in an Asian sweat shop?
Even Roger looks like Peppermint Patty.
I am so glad Nadal did not show - he would have been just too unbearably cute in his cool green crapi pants.

Re: IS NIKE'S COOLMINT GREEN THE NEW BLACK?

agreed. The sea green seemed putrid to me at the beginning of the week but the repetition is already beginning to bludgeon me into submision, much like the band keane.

Team Rafa or Team Roger? Team Nole or Team Berdych? Declare Yourself Now!

I also love the typo, but I have a feeling it might have been intentional

I hate sea foam green. It looks stupid on the men and the women.

I think the Yellow and Blue fed wore for the open was much cooler.

I like the pale green. I think it looks very summery and cool.

It could be worse. They could've been wearing pink

The mint green looks good on some, and hideous on others.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Couldn't agree more. I think Fed looks best in blue or red.

Re: IS NIKE'S COOLMINT GREEN THE NEW BLACK?

I'am glad James Blake didn't wear this colour (at least in his second match). He looked much better in white/blue than rest of nike guys in this silly green colour. I like Nike clothes but some of them are horrible. I hated that tops with grey back (nadal at montreal, federer at cincinattii,) But I liked Federer UsOpen clothes and AO Nike collection last year this year I looked at Tennis Warehouse and they didn't have anything special
