    In the past I would have said Nike. I can not stand their latest lines. Now I would have to go with Adidas.
     
  5. Nike for sure, theyre making wonderful tennis-clothes.

    I like where your head's at. I'm a big fan of all three of those brands but isn't it sad that none of them are as adventurous with their designs as they were back in the day. I'm thinking Borg's Fila gear for example - no-one makes stuff like that anymore. Everything seems to be pretty conservative these days.

    I'd say Le Coq Sportif <that's my current sponsor> but it's official the new owners will dismiss tennis/technical lines to go "fashion" all the way :p

    Then i'll go with Lotto...or maybe TF with Adidas or Head shoes...Nike <literally..it's a well known problem..> stinks.

    Ah...and Head PT57A frames w/Prestige current PJ, and TF or OneStrings strings... :D

    Yeah, Adidas. Basically because I've rocking Adidas gear for some years now. Though I find Nike produces cooler looking lines (No AdiPUN intended). But Adidas has a few great lines coming out. Shirts with 'tattoo-looking graphics and perforations on the back of the shirts. Their SLVR line (casual wear) is great. Just like the Lacoste casual gear.

    Prince....I play with the Warrior now and love the T22 shoe. It is hands down the best shoe I've ever worn. I wish they'd bring their clothing line back now so I could be a "playa" ;) (tongue firmly planted in cheek on the playa comment I really like the Nike "Agassi" short and wear whatever dry fit shirt I have, my current favs are the Pacific ones that TW used to sell for $23 but sadly no longer has)

    Whichever one doesn't use sweatshop labour to make their stuff. It's my only knock on Federer that he is so closely linked with Nike which has such a dodgy history with regard to how it treats its workers.

    Voted for Fila (if only because of the vintage-wear potential), though the majority of the actual tennis-specific clothes I own are K-Swiss. Love their boardshorts.

    Adidas or Nike as they pay the most. Pay being equal, would probably take Lotto or Lacoste as they're nice quality and a little more rare.
