    Just out of curiosity, does anybody know how many sets of clothes do players get for a tournament.

    I know that sometimes they wear the same thing the whole tournament, or in bigger tournaments they have a couple different sets, but do they get multiple sets of the same shirts, shorts, shoes, etc?

    I would imagine that the lower ranked guys get their stuff shipped at the start of the season and they bring however many pairs of clothes they'll need. If they need more im sure they can contact their rep to send them more. i think?

    Above post is pretty correct for the lower-ranked.

    Top 5 or 10? They'd rarely, if ever, wear something twice. They get photographed so so often that it's more than worth it to the sponsors to provide them with unlimited new clothing.

    Top players can often get through 2-3 shirts a match, all of which are brand new, often still wrapped, so you do the maths!
