    I was noticing that a lot of the European players were using clothing that had a kangeroo on it and it looked like "Auztralia" or " "Auztralian" name on it. does anyone know anything about this clothing or where you can purchase it. Thanks.

    I think it's Kangarucci that had the kangaroo on it. As far as I know, Kangarucci isn't an Aussie brand. We DID have brand down here some years ago called Simpson that also had a kangaroo- I believe John Fitzgerald was a sponsored player for awhile - but I'm pretty sure you've seen the Kangarucci logo. Haven't seen Simpson gear in years.

    Australian is an italian brand, the owner is Giordano Maioli a former Davis cup player, they endorsed guys like Ivanisevic and Ivan Lendl.

    Quite popular in italy, in the mid 90's they got a raquets line too, a perfect clones of Wilson pro staff, Prince graphite,Head prestige and so on.

    They got the same paint scheme but with different colors (for example, the pro staff replica was black/blue/red and not black/yellow and red)

    Tha Australian 401, the pro staff classic clone , was much better than the original one for me (I liked the balance more).
