Serena can wear a minging bathing suit or whatever the hell that thing was, but Tommy Haas can't wear a sleeveless shirt?

Uhm, HELLO?!

He should follow the rules. It's nice that the guy has to follow the rules for once in an effing eclipse. Go chicks!!!

But girls should have no rules?

Personally it's more offensive to me to see Serena's boobs and ass hanging out than to see Tommy's arms?

That was an outrage. Why can't he show off his beautiful biceps. :drool: I couldn't believe they made him change lol. In my humble opinion, Tommy should be the one wearing something tight around his perfectly shaped ass, not Serena. Although I had no problem with Serena's outfit. I just think it would look better on Tommy that's all. :D

The rule should be changed. The men have so little choice in variety of clothing. What's the big deal if Tommy shows some arm? People complaing that the men are all alike but then they aren't even allowed to express their personal fashion tastes. Personally, I think John McEnroe had a good idea: shirts and skins - or even better, skins and skins:D

I'm sorry but, Who Cares!!!!!! We all know Tommy has bigger dramas in his life.

I just think this is all funny as if this is some big controversial thing that would emotionally upset people. LOL!

Where is the picture of him and his girlfriend that you're talking about?

I have always noticed Tommy hated the sleeves cos he always pull them you know..

I thought you were obliged to wear those tennis shirts, polo thingies and that t-shirts for example were forbidden? Apparently they changed the rules.

Then you have Courier's point of view: the polos are "appropriate tennis clothing" and anything less is downright horrible--he almost had a cow over allowing T-shirts, LOL!

But even Jim thinks Serena is going too far with the outifit.

Dang - the rules suck

as a male player of this great game I do get jealous of the lack of variety of mens tennis clothing - basically you are limited to shirt + shorts - the only variety is in the colours and materials ------>

If Serena is allowed to wear something that advertises to the world that her BUTT is almost as large as her EGO and quite frankly belongs in the

"TENNIS OUTFITS HALL OF SHAME"

then for sure the male players should be able to wear shirts with smaller or no sleeves!!!!!

One of the other reasons i think the women are allowed to wear these outfits is this:

Womens tennis is esssentially about standing at the baseline and pummelling the ball as hard as possible down the middle of the court until one player messes it up - it is about as interesting as watching paint dry !!! the only thing that can make the womens game more interesting it seems is the ridiculous outfits.

The men's game on the other hand is already interesting enough so different outfits would not create more interest merely enhance what is already there.

GREAT COME BACK TOMMY - GOOD LUCK - AND TIM ........ SWEET MATE, JUST GET THAT BIG FIRST SERVE WORKING AGAIN !!!!:bounce:

thanks for posting the pic of Tommy! I first saw that about a year ago, and lost it from my comp some how! I've been looking for it forever, and even tried the NY post today but couldn't find it! So thanks!! I love that pic of HOT Tommy!!! :drool:!

This is so stupid. Neither of them was naked. So let them play. :rolleyes:
Serena was making a fool out of herself, at the most. So, its only HER problem.
As for sleeveless shirts pffff. I hate the sleeves myself, and always pull them up as well. Its just stupid to make someone change for that. :rolleyes:

"I just think this is all funny as if this is some big controversial thing that would emotionally upset people. LOL!"

Pffffffff.

The guy doesn't like sleeves. he rolls them up half the time anyway. Unless they produce some sort of "sleeves have to be worn and also have to be at least 5 inches long" rule, I vote he tries keep them rolled up and fixed in place with a clip or something.

I'd like to see Tommy play in a sleeveless shirt!!! No, wait a minute...the more shirts with sleeves he sweats up the more he'll have to change during a match. I just wish they'd show the shirt change on the air!!!;)

I actually attended a match of his live and when he changed his shirt, you couldn't stop me from drooling...:drool::hearts:
