    How does a blue shirt and dark blue shorts qualify as colors of the USA? I thought the players had to wear their national colors. How can someone tell if he is representing the USA? I'm really disappointed.

    I wish NBC would show the Sharapova vs Lisicki match instead of Isner......

    Well, blue shirt, white hat, red shoelaces. Plus the Lacoste crocodile has red white and blue like the flag.

    Really? Trash? Funny, I don't see anyone named MikeyBigShot in the QF's of the Olympics. Perhaps you would like to go show him how it's done?

    Wimbledon let the non white rule drop for the Olympics, but there is still a dress code, preferably nation coloured shirt, then white shorts and socks.

    Was mentioned on tv here months ago. It makes sense as well if you look at what most are wearing. But I have looked into it more and it appears the rule had officially been scrapped so I am not sure. In most sports the team USA clothing seems to be more subtle where as us in the uk have half a flag on most of ours lol.

    What has he won?

    My job isn't playing tennis. I'm quite certain that my track record in my industry is more impressive than his track record in his occupation!


    Also, his boring play interrupted the Sharapova vs Lisicki match. Besides tennis nerds, who wants to watch Isner?

    Oh really? Out of the entire world, you're in the top 10 of your industry? Please.

    And being a janitor doesn't count.
