    Was watching last night, Nole's first round match. What a blase first outfit by Sergio Tacchini. All black and red accents that look like fireballs around the chest area. Really nothing distinctive at all. Just blends in.

    His Adidas outfits were a lot more striking and individual last year. Hope they improve on what they've designed for him the rest of the year.

    For a guy who looked like the heat was beating him down in Melbourne last year, all black may not have been the wisest choice. Hopefully, he has an alternate.

    I was kinda surprised with the outfit, for some reason I assumed he was going to wear the retro Young line.

    I certainly expected something better from an
    Italian brand. Didn't like the outfit either...

    Even though Djokovic is playing in Tacchini, he hasn't been added to the website site yet.

    while never a big fan of adidas and their odd colors (with shoes to match . . . like prom), i have to agree and give this new tacchini stuff a big thumbs down, as well.

    joeldali hit the proverbial nail on the head . . . except for the fact that hot wheels were actually cool back in the day. this line won't even be cool in a few months when i see it at marshall's on clearance.

    Yeah, it could definitely be a little more understated, and not so "flashy". I actually liked Andreev's outfit a lot more than Djokovic's. The all black might work perhaps better with just the logo and some stripes of some sort, and then the logo in a different color than red that's still prominent. I have a hard time really making out the cool Tacchini logo with all those flames swirling around. I will say this, like Djokovic, that outfit definitely has some personality, that's for sure!

    His own "line" should be at least a bit more like this, in my opinion.

    Is this your first time to watch a tennis tournament? You know, they have day and night edition of clothing. Lighter color for the day session, darker (one he used in Rd 1) for the night session...

    He was discussing the BLACK outfit vs. AO Heat, not the pattern of the outfit...

    What is tacchini thinking? This outfit is terrible. It looks like vinyl under the lights. Bad mix of jersey shore graphics on a polo shirt.
    Andreev's kit looked great. Maybe igor can loan djoko a classic st shirt for the later rounds

    I'm watching Djoko play Chiudnelli right now. It's a pretty ugly outfit. I didn't know he was no longer with Addidas. I have two of those eagle shirts. Have they lost value now that Novak is wearing Tacchini?

    I wuld say that is anything they have gained value, because for example old sports jerseys are worth more so I think that this is a similar situation, but that my opinion.

    Designers at Sergio tried to bring Ed Hardy & Jersey Shore into tennis.

    Epic fail.

    His shorts from the Hit for Haiti expo with "Nole" on his butt made me chuckle. Do all of his shorts say that?
