    I just knew this question would come up eventually :)

    I like how Nike - whether purposely or not - provides Mr Sharapova with the "Not-Fed" and "Not-Rafa" apparel ranges. We saw this with his elegant Monte Carlo shirt that sparked a multi-page thread and a worldwide search by some obsessives.

    I like it too. I think Nike could and should use Grigor as the poster boy for a tennis-inspired line of NSW Sportswear.

    Likely a PE. Strange, because it's one of the best tennis tops of 2013.

    People like this because it looks good, but doesnt bear the silly logos of the top pros. Dimitrov could verywell be the perfect person for this. He has taken Berdych's spot as the high fashion, no logo Nike sponsor

    Looks like he is using 4G in the top pics and possibly BB in the other?

    Come on guys let's stay on topic.

    Maybe this henley is out in Brazil or something like his Monte Carlo polo?

    Is it an EU-only release? There are several other options besides TWE so maybe it can be found at other EU stockists.

    I like the hidden placket and colourblocking. It also looks way thicker than regular shirts, from the pictures. Another Dri-Fit I'm guessing.

    If this shirt isn't a public release in the next winter lineup, I'm gonna be irritated.

    Awesome shirt (although I liked it better when I saw it on TV and thought they were all solid sections). Not on TWE either.

    I guess we'll find out Nov 1. I can't believe Dimitrov is going to start getting shirts that never go on sale to the public. Patience.

    I checked all the online retailers that stock nike tennis that I know; couldn't find it. I really do hope it's a Nov 1st release but I have my doubts.

    This is the kind of interest Nike can generate when they decide to do something that isn't a piece of mono-coloured blandwear with just a Swoosh on the front.

    We've all been bored into submission by non-descript Nike shirt after Nike shirt that any interesting design seen on a Nike pro instantly gets our attention.

    Hate to say but I don't see it in the SP2014 or SU2014 line-up (or the 2nd release of HO2013). At least not in the tennis section anyway
    Of course not everything that Nike releases is in the retail catalogs so there's still a chance it may release

    What are all you guys talking about? This shirt is not nice. It looks like a onesie you would put on a Pampers-wearing baby boy cutting his first tooth. All it is missing is an embroidered teddy bear.

    Maybe you can find a sweet matching terrycloth bib with the swoosh logo to go with it though. Keep your henley protected from all your drool.

    I like 'em when guys who have the arms for it wear them. Rafa looked smashing. Delpo, with his skinny-fat arms, not so much.

    In fact, I wish Rafa would break out the sleeveless shirts now and again. That look was too good to retire completely. And on him, it's a classic.

    Definitely one of Nike's most unique tops for this season. If only I could find one. They don't seem to be in any Nike stores.

    No, you're not. All it needs is a ball, a ducky, or a choo-choo on it to make the infantile picture complete.

    I wonder if Dimitrov now having worn non-tennis line shirts a couple of times in a row is more to do with him not liking synthetic material and preferring cotton. Both of the recent polos he's worn were both cotton.

    This previous one I saw in a few places which were non sports stores and more casual/street style.

    The polo that he wore here is a tennis polo.
    I believe it is 85% polyester, 15% cotton

    Wow, in that case they're getting good with polyester. I tried one of these one and it felt like a classic cotton polo. I didn't buy it as wasn't really into the colours.

    Yes it is : 85 / 15.

    By the way, it seems the Federer's polos for spring 2014 will be the same material.

    I've been looking for this shirt everywhere.
    Hopefully it comes out tomorrow.
    I couldn't understand why'd they wouldn't release it to the public, that'd be a mistake on their part.
