    He's been with Fila for about a week. Nike dropped him or the other way around.

    Wow! There goes the theory that Nike would keep creating some wilder stuff - like Rafa used to wear - and let Blake wear it.

    Blake dropped........

    It was official last week as Blake dropped Nike for the offer that Fila made him when Nike did not counter.

    Good move by JB for his future. If this is done right it could be great news for Fila as well.

    Cheers, TennezSport :cool:

    the hat on his shaved head looks way better than a headband, IMHO.

    Agree but i think he is wearing the hat cause the blazing sun in australia. you need to protect against UV rays on the bald head to protect against possible skin cancer.

    ah i see. i hope he would abandon the headband for the hat though.
    I have never been a fan of the sleeveless shirts, so I approve of his new fila short sleeve shirt too :)

    THe shorts look wrinkled. That outfit looks boring. And as you said, JB has worn a hat in Oz before - the sun is pretty tough down there - and I think they have some holes in their ozone...

    Its only a practice outfit. This is a good move from Fila.

    Yes, usually FILA makes a Fashion statement. I love those BORG outfits.

    In front of my computer, obviously

    Not really, there are two threads on this subject in the Pro Gear section (where clothes and racquets are usually discussed) and there was a story on Tennis Week as well.
