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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

:lol: I actually like the mint green color. It sure beats the boring all-white clothes certain players have been wearing. :zzz:

Of coarse!

Ferrero wasn't in Nike, but even he had to stick some peppermint on his head. Almost as if he didn't want to feel left out.

I loved just the headband, it seemed darker so it was nice, but the light colour is HORRIBLE

I think its a nice change. But the mint green looks far better paired with white like with Serena's ensemble and Federers shirt, than mint green like with Davenports dress. Didn't look that great.

I really like the green - it is cool and fresh looking. I particularly liked the shade of Serena Williams' dress today - thought it really suited her.
