05-07-2004, 02:11 AM
I'd buy it, I'd wear it, it would be my favorite shirt, but I don't buy things off the internet, especially if I gotta pay extra because I live in Canada:(

Those only went up this year - he still *could* wear them at some point. I like them, I'd like to see him wear them, but I wouldn't wear it myself.

They better bring him good luck.;)

05-07-2004, 08:19 PM
Skyler, he's wearing these clothes now:lol: HE should have a fresh batch of new clothes come hardcourt time after Wimbledon. IF Venus plays before Andy does and she has on new gear post Wimbledon, then Andy will have new gear and it should be the same color as hers. They should play mixed doubles together, they would actualy match with their outfits:lol:

Yes. Andy can cover the forehand side, and Venus the backhand. Venus can cover the net and Andy can power at the baseline. ;) Perfect combo.

05-07-2004, 08:21 PM
Skyler, he's been wearing those for a long time (he wore them in both Scottsdale, which was early March) and also in Houston, plus in between.... He wore a red version as early as the AO didn't he? I like it, assuming the shorts are coordinated.

05-07-2004, 08:24 PM
the red version was slightly different. These outfits the white is the minority and the color dominates the shirt. his red version, it was the white which was the dominant "color" and the red was the minority. and yes he wore that at the AO, and I think also in Dubai if i'm not mistaken. Andy should have a green version of these shirts he had previously worn this year. they would look awesome....

Now that's something I may wear.

05-07-2004, 08:28 PM
Idk if I am in love with all his Reebok stuff this season. It seems to have a very Gilbertian infulence.

Would you wear the Jacket? http://av.tennis-warehouse.com/ProductImages/RMRRJ.JPG

05-07-2004, 08:30 PM
If you wear the jacket you have to wear these with it!!http://av.tennis-warehouse.com/big/RMRRP-big.jpg Any body ever see Andy wearing the warm-ups?

05-07-2004, 08:41 PM
I already stated that i :hearts: the jacket. I would buy that in an instant, and of course I would have to buy the pants as well:banana: but never the two of them together, just a rule that I follow;) I've seen Andy in both the jacket and the warm-up pants, but never together:p I'm sure someone can dig up a pic of Andy with the pants on

05-07-2004, 08:53 PM
I'd actually wear that jacket lol

05-07-2004, 08:55 PM
I have no Reebook clothes at home for the moment only Nike. But when I buy some tennis clothes, it's always Nike (most of the time) or Reebook.

Why does Andy and many other tennis players tug on his shirt?
Harold Kulungian

As a medical man who has studied and practiced and taught natural healing through Macrobiotics for thirty years, I take a special interest in clothing, since good quality natural fabrics are the most critical factor that determines how well we digest our food.

My observation is that the quality of tennis clothing has steadily gone down hil with increasing speed in the last few yearsl, with some players now wearing 100% petroleum-based synthetic garments.

With this background, why are Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, David Nalbandian, and many others, constantly seen tugging his shirt up close to his neck on either side? The facial gesture clearly indicates that the player is trying to relieve some discomfort by bringing his shirt into closer contact with his skin.

My observation is that since tennis players no longer wear a sleeveless athletic shirt as their first garment, they are without an undershirt that would make constant contact with their spine and their whole chest. The traditional cotton undershirt was of the knit type, adhering to the skin and absorbing and dispelling perspiration as fast as one sweated.

The technical physiological term for this biological function of clothing is TRANSPIRATION, "breathing out from the skin". With the current tennis fashions, players have very little TRANSPIRATION working for them. So they become drenched in their own sweat, and sometimes will change shirts 2 or 3 times during a match.

Nevertheless, no matter how many fresh shirts they put on, they cannot solve the problem of trying to keep their skin dry and clean. Nothing is more inimical to health than strenuous activity while drenched in perspiration, which is a toxic waste product from digestion and elimination.

Thus so many health problems plaguing today's players in synthetic clothing, which did not plague tennis players when they wore all cotton flannels: cramping, inflammation of joints, fatigue, inability to move quickly, etc. An example: 2004 French Open, first round Andre Aggassi comes out in paper-thin black polyester shorts, rippling in the breeze. His opponent is a French qualifier, but dressed in traditional white heavy-weight flannels. Who will win? Just as I fully expected, Aggassi doesn't have the energy to even move when the ball is hit on either side of the court: he stands there completely flat-footed, watching the ball go by. Did Andre ever figure out what was his problem that sad day he was ousted from a major in the opening round? I rather doubt it.

Why do I doubt it? Because the top tennis players are all being paid big bucks, around fifty grand a year, to be walking clothes-horses for name-brand tennis clothes which are mainly junk petroleum-based garments. Try to imagine the tennis greats of former years donning such absurdly poor quality non-absorbent clothing! Impossible!

Conclusion: Tennis players should put their clothing suppliers on notice to supply 100% natural clothing that can absorb and dissipate their sweat, keep their skin dry, and insulate their body warmth--or else they will break the contract. Can it be worth 50 grand a year to risk putting one's health and one's performance in constant jeopardy?
Wouldn't it be wiser to forego the clothing contract and be able to clothe oneself in the very best quality natural fabrics, thereby safeguarding one's health and performing and winning matches much more assuredly?

Incidentally (final point), it is a pure myth that the so-called "miracle fabrics" "wick away the moisture". If you want proof, buy an oil lamp with a polyester wick and see if it will draw up the oil and burn. It won't; I've tried it. A fabric made of oil certainly cannot absorb oil or water or anything else.

Isn't it about time that professional tennis players liberated themselves from the spurious commercial propaganda of "wicking away the moisture"?http://www.andyroddick.com/forum/index.php?topic=2562.0
