Crazy, isn't it? Posting those pics of Andy in his bad outfits made me nostalgic for the one guy who raised bad fashion to an art form: young Andre! He deserves his own picture thread don't you think? :devil:

Compare that first pic above to this one and tell me what's changed. (hint: it's not Petey) :eek: :lol:

The last time the US won the Davis Cup was in 1995 when Sampras and Agassi played. Hopefully, Fish/Roddick/Blake/Bryan Twins will do it again for us soon!

This was taken in 1999. Andre shows that, when it comes to style, he is clearly the trendsetter in men's tennis fashions!

I just love how everything about him at that time just pissed off the tennis establishment! He got away with a lot of crap that lesser players would've been fined or disqualified for.

And to see how much he's grown and matured and become one of the most respected players on tour. It says a lot about his character. Andre is very much a self-made man. :worship:

I figured Andre deserved his own crazy picture thread. His styles were just too classic not to post and share with the world.

If there's any such thing as a "new" Andre fan, they'll be in for a shock when they get a load of these pics. Tee hee! :rolls:

MisterQ
02-18-2004, 04:09 AM
Hey, thanks for checking out the pics, Billabong! Yeah, Andre has changed a lot over the years. Not just his clothes and hair, either! I watched some older matches of his recently, and his game was also different. He had the same great strokes, but not the same rigorous approach. He was much more likely to go for crazy far-out shots. Some of those shots were AMAZING! He was more "improvisational" back then.

MisterQ

And the best one of all---a neat little bookend to their career rivalry---a young Pete and Andre meet for the first time at USO 1990 where Pete won his first slam title. Twelve years later, a more mature Pete and Andre would meet at USO again, where Pete would win his final slam before reitiring, 2002. :worship: :hearts: :worship: :hearts: :worship: :hearts:
