New Shirt for 2004

Out of all new tennis shirts, I think Sergio Tachinni (worn by Escude, Robredo) and Reebok (Andy Roddick) is among the best and the worst is of course worn by LLeyton Hewitt in the Hopman Cup (maybe some of FILA designers have been employed in Nike).

The weird thing is that Tim Henman gets to wear the latest Adidas tennis shirt, usually Safin will wear them first (he is still wearing the old ugly green black shirt).

Another weird thing is that all FILA sponsored players ~ Phillippoussis and Schuettler wore blue outfits. Where are those ugly red colour?

Grosjean is still wearing those one colour Lacoste polo but the shoes he is wearing is ugly ~ a red and black nike Breathe.

What do u guys think?

Re: New Shirt for 2004

I think I would like to see a six month ban on the color blue in men's tennis clothes (adidas is the worst at this). How about some green, red, purple? Anything but blue. And could adidas please get over the idea that all of their shirts and all of their shorts have to have three stripes on them? It really limits their options.

On the other hand, 3 of the adidas players look better without any shirt at all, so maybe they could just put a temporary tattoo of the flower logo on the biceps of Gambill, Kiefer and Safin from now on. Ratings would definitely improve...

Re: New Shirt for 2004

I agree about the new Reebok shirt. I saw Andy wearing the black version of the shirt during his Charity Season in December, and I think it looks nice.

I'm wondering if the reason Marat is not wearing the new Adidas shirt is because he prefers shirts without collars (more of a t-shirt, than a polo), and Tim does not.

I'm not sure if anyone has seen the new photos of Lleyton's last Hopman Cup match, but he's wearing a red shirt, with black accents. I think it looks fairly decent, although it really reminds me of Schuettler before Fila went with this new style of shirt.

Just a note that Mikhail Youhzny is also wearing the new Fila shirt, as is Wayne Ferreira. Also, Joshua Eagle (Pat Rafter's doubles partner) is wearing the new Nike outfit that Lleyton wore yesterday (the white with red accent shirt). And Patrick Rafter is wearing an all-white Reebok outfit that is the same style as Roddick's new shirt, but all one color.

"And lastly, it was great once again to savour the atmosphere of playing in my favourite event. Although it may be getting harder with each passing year to achieve my goal of winning this event it won’t stop me trying."
-Tim Henman on Wimbledon

Good Luck to: Malisse, Hewitt, Roddick, Blake, Fish, Vliegen, Gaudio, Bryan & Bryan, Oliver, Ginepri, Labadze, Berdych, Tipsarevic, Kendrick.

People I miss: Henman, Safin, Oliver.

Re: New Shirt for 2004

Andy, Lleyton and Rainer look hideous. Marat's shirt is old and ugly, Tim is nice. I love blue, especially the one juanqui wore in 2001

Andy- classic and very nice
Marat- same old boring crap (wake up adidas )
Tim- boring as well (adidas sucks ass)
Lleyton- tolerable
Rainer- just a color change wow the blue looks like its metalic, the red version was much nicer

Re: New Shirt for 2004

but t-shirts are much better than sleeveless shirts...more tasteful i think...

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: New Shirt for 2004

I hope Marat's one can be different for the upcoming tournaments...

I quite like Rainier's one, I like Fila, specially in men.

Roddick's and Hewitt's ones are ok, not that attractive, but are not ugly. I think they're just OK for tennis at least, though I'd prefer Roddick's one.

I don't like Tim's's boring, can Adidas please wake up as Naldo said! I'm tired of the 3 stripes classic styles, or those boring colours, take risks. I think Adidas is much better for women, than for men.

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

The pix are too small to give a good opinion but I saw Marat, Roger and Hewitt's shirts before. Marat's will probably have a new design when AO arrives and I don't like Hewitt and Roger new outfit.

The blue version of Fila shirt will take a little while to get used to but like the red one, I think it's great. I saw the shirt worn by Misha and it also looks great on him. But I think Rainer will be better with the red one.

Re: New Shirt for 2004

I like the Reebok shirt worn by Henman. I also like Hewitt's red shirt with the balck accents (not exactly loving the white with red stripes, though). You guys MUST admit that this new Nike shirt is 10,567 times better than their hideous shirts last year.

Re: New Shirt for 2004

OMG, did Nike run out of things for Lleyton to wear??? His outfit was disgusting! And Safin should move onto a new design, his current outfit is just too out-dated... oh and andy and tim looked nice.

They're all ok...except for Lleyton's shirt.
