    I think Polo tried to enter the tennis market and haven't done very well. Tennis needs affordable clothing manufacturers--not the pretentious country-club image.

    Either a Head/Fischer/wilson racquet sponsor, and probably Adidas clothing sponsor.

    I picked Nike. Maybe they would make me some personal gear that was never ever releaased to the public.

    Any company?

    Hmm, possibly J. Lindeberg...Maybe something like A&F.

    Tennis companies; Lacoste,Nike or K-Swiss I think.


    I know, I've not done well here :-D:-D

    What no Le Coq Sportif or Tacchini? Come on man... incomplete poll! Who wouldn't feel fly sporting the rooster? Tacchini has made some nice stuff recently...

    ...but I voted for Fila. It's pretty tight looking stuff and it's not the same ol same ol that the big two put out.

    See what I"m talkin' 'bout...

    Adidas always seem to put these 90s-looking patterns all over everything. Lacoste has been ruined in the UK by chavs. Nike all the way; smart cuts, great colourways... what more could you want?

    Stiga

    They are a table tennis brand, but their Polo Shirts are the best I have ever owned, so soft and comfortable.

    Never actually used a Stiga blade, I use a Butterfly Michael Maze and I used to use Stiga Neos Sound Rubbers glued on with Stiga Energy but since the glue ban I've had to change. Sorry, I digress :D

    Oh, the old stiga shorts were also the most comfortable shorts ever, once you remove the silly lining. If they made a longer version with bigger pockets, they would be superb tennis shorts.

    I want a full cotton tennis outfit, that would be sooo nice.

    If I was a pro, I'd only sign with adidas. I'd sign for less just to wear their gear. Really.

    Nike because they make good apparel, but Adidas because of their shoes, and because I always wear it.

    I'm going to buck the trend here...
    I would go with Champion or Starter. I simply like their designs better than any "official" tennis clothing out there.

    adidas seems to have most of the hot babes, so I'd go with them. You never know who you're gonna bump into at the company mixer...
