He's still the world number 1, Papagena, and who knows what happens in the French. He may arrive to Wimbledon as the FO champion.

I don't mind seeing a fancy Wimby attire this year, as well. He's going for the record, after all.

Maybe indeed. But are you really counting on it? Not me...

'Fancy' is okay... over-the-top is NOT.

Re: *****************Clay Court Season Photos***********************

Have we all forgotten last year when he lost RG final not playing very well, then skipped Halle. Certainly went into W with a ? if he could pull it off again. Roger lives for W, plays his best tennis there. My guess is Nike will come up with something special, maybe similar to what he had last year. He is defending champ after all and is going for 6 in a row.

Re: *****************Clay Court Season Photos***********************

^^ I can also well remember how very, VERY close he was to losing last year, and remember myself thinking, "IF he loses, how ridiculous will he look?"

I just don't know what to think of it this year...

Re: *****************Clay Court Season Photos***********************

I don't see the connection between what he wears and how tough the loss will be to deal with.

Last years Wimbledon outfit was a throw back. It was classy, that's Roger's image. I don't think it's going to go away or dissipate or make him look like a fool if he loses a final dressed that way.

If you don't like how he dresses with Nike then you don't like it, if you do you do. Win or lose.

It might just be me, but I don't get it.

I wouldn't be too worried about Wimbledon guys, his game has gotten much stronger the last month and grass mostly Wimbledon are his favorite times of the year. After all the talk, and doubt I don't think he'll be leaving Wimbledon with anything less than another title.

Re: *****************Clay Court Season Photos***********************

^^ I can tell you what will happen if he loses at Wimbly all dressed up as the GOAT, but I don't think you want to know.
Keeping a slighly lower profile might not be such a bad idea this year.

Re: *****************Clay Court Season Photos***********************

Worse case scenerio last year, he could have just not put the pants on and go to the ceremony with the shorts.

Yep - that's what I meant with the difference between being 'fancy' and 'over-the-top'. I LOVED the jacket, in both 2006 and 2007, but I wouldn't be all too happy to see those pants appear in 2008 again - let alone that 'man purse',

Re: *****************Clay Court Season Photos***********************

For Wimbledon this year he should just stick to the vest and pants. That's way classy and won't look over the top. The jacket should come only after he wins the title, and the sixth something (I forgot. racket?) along with it.

I disagree. He's still #1 in the rankings and I want him to act as such. Not to give into the media 'spin' that he's a has been who's time has come and gone.
