Sounds like he has agreed to at least try Nike and Bausch and Lomb's new "MaxSight" contact lens product.

Some revolutionary contact lens that is supposed to improve sight.
Has had some success in MLB (Brian Robers, Orioles). Griffey is supposedly giving them a try also. In baseball it's supposed to help batters pick up the seams (is that possible on a 90 mph fastball?).

That article in the link is the biggest fluff piece I've ever read. Pure advertisement. I'd give these "sun glasses" a pass until they're proven to acutally do something.

If Federer starts winning everything, as in every tournament he plays in, I might get some. No, better yet, if lets say Michael Youzhny tries em and wins every tournament he plays in, beating Federer and everybody, THEN I will get me some.

I read a brief article a few months back that eye damage was a major problem among pro tennis players. I assumed the damage came from having to serve even when the service toss aligns with the sun. If these protect the eyes, while improving visual acuity (along the lines of the Bolle Vigilantes), they could become a hot item.

Fed is always looking for something to dominate his counterparts even more embarassingly, eh?

Looking at his feet problem so far, I won't be putting anything from Nike into my eyes if I were him.

Would it be possible to equip tennis umpires and linesfolk with the lenses and forego electronic line calling?
