    Mine are the '06 Wimby and USO shirts Fed wore (white and blue). Had the very unique venting in the back. Own 1 of each.

    One of my favourites is Andy Roddick's 2003 US open top. Wish I'd gotten one :(

    My problem is I always tend to like the lines after they're gone. Like the YOC, Djoker is wearing. I also wasn't as much into tennis apparel as I am now.

    Thanks Bezs for placing that name with the shirt above.

    Do you know anything about why Hrbaty wore that? I wonder if it was for publicity or if it was for some functional reason of his, like staying cooler in the heat??

    See wikipedia on him:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominik_Hrbatý

    Looks like he retired in 2009 and I didn't realize that he was Roger Federer's good friend and former doubles partner.

    He did reach the QF of the US Open in 2004 and it looks like he was a very good doubles player.

    No problem, good work finding that one and thanks for the reminder of it. He and Stepanek do have some physical similarities for sure..

    Have a medium of the one above. I also have the 09 AU colorway you like but in the vneck (Large).

    Not necessarily as a standalone shirt, but as part of a package deal ... always loved the Darth Federer kit.

    I keep hearing that the Med fits a bit like the L. Is it kinda loose? I would really like the Polo over the vneck for the AO 09.

    I went to the gym today and wore this bad boy. Felt a little like a tool wearing a tennis polo to the gym, but damn if I didn't look good! BTW, the shirt was ultra comfortable, breathed nicely, and didn't show off sweat too badly.

    The Vilas one from around this time, the cream-colored one with the navy shoulders and the red stripes on the sides, was even better. [​IMG] The classic adidas one from the Seventies, the white or light blue or yellow with the three stripes on the shoulders, were brilliant as well.

    [​IMG] Here's one you don't often see, but I loved this one - and, of course, Rocket wore it, so that makes it even cooler. I must have looked everywhere for this shirt (and the cool belted shorts, 30 years before Federer's), but I could never find them - stupid Puritan Sportswear.

    Adidas owns Reebok, so technically they didn't steal. Adidas just reused it in a new line.

    Was that sarcasm? I can't really tell in the written word. :confused: I didn't either. I actually found out the same way you did. Someone posted the same pic and what you said and then another poster answered. From there I went to the trusty Wikipedia and found out some interesting stuff.

    I had no idea Adi-das was from Germany and that Puma was founded by his older brother. Adolf ("Adi") Dassler = Adidas and (RuDa, then renamed) Puma = Rudolf Dassler

    It's just that since us Americans pronounce this soo far off, that we get confused where it originated from. I hear it said Adee-duhs. So yeah, go figure.

    ^^No, I honestly didnt know adidas owned Reebok. Thanks for schooling me on that.

    I knew about the Adi Dassler thing, not about Puma though.

    Europeans say it the ''right'' way, pr adi-das not adee-das but we get a lot of stuff wrong!
