How long are your shorts when playing tennis?
Where the "at the knee" choice?
That's where my shorts are at, I usually get the 9" shorts.

Slightly above the knees.
9" so right at the knees
below the knees
Yeah, where's at the knee.
I usually get XL shorts, and I'm 6 ft.
just below the knees for me
for me you can see the bottom of my knee, so its not under the knee. but its not above the knee either, its at the knee.
slightly above knee does it for me, although i wouldnt mind a pair of nadals 3/4 capri pants.
i wear mine just below the knees, if they are shorter u can c my tan mark
my tan line is well worse marcus, so i should put some fake tan on. lol
Slightly above the knee. Personally I find it kind of ugly when it goes below the knees as it creates that "ghetto style" that I oh so hate XD
Well, to each their own!
Shorts should not be "longs." How about some real shorts and not the knickers everybody's selling nowdays??
what u suggesting that everyone starts wearing hotpants.!!! lol
In my humble opinion this is the ideal lenght of shorts:
Though it also depends on the person wearing them. I wouldnt want to see someone with disturbingly fat and/or hairy legs using shorts of that length.
yeah, just above the knee, the 'perfect' length in my opinion.
nadal style baby!
Also slightly above the knee...no ghetto factor here
Janne, Sampras was kinda hairy...but you're right..that's the perfect length shorts..he looked really goofy when he started wearing them longer
like nadals wimbledon short?
Yeah I agree, he was quite hairy a while but then he started shaving.

Mowcopian: Can you post a picture of Nadals wimbledon shorts. I can't watch the games on TV since you need a specific channel here in Sweden which I dont have.
he was a very hairy beast.
They have to be slightly below the knee for me, if I wear anything else, my under armour shows!
next time add another option: on the knee (smack in the middle, thats usually where i wear mine, unless im feeling gay, then i wear them 2 inches from my waist... LOL jk)
what about more than a couple inche above the knees.
Below the knees doesn't look good. When I see Nadal I always have the impression he pays in his pyjama.
Agree with Sebastien.
Please tell me you're kidding about the pirate pants. Anyway, I agree. Slightly above the knee is preferred.
I second that. There seems to be many real "shorts" for women, but none for men nowadays.
lol i never knew guys buy the fake tanning stuff too
In the summer I prefer a couple inches above the knees. In the winter I will wear them just above the knee. I sweat a lot in the summer and I can't stand having a little longer shorts that are dripping wet.
slightly above the knees for tennis since they give an ease to movement and knee bending. other wise its just below the knees for casual wear and other sports for fun
I don't like having my knees exposed but I'm short and I wear crew socks so I can't wear them too long.
I also don't like having the waistband right on my waist. I like the waistband of my shorts below the waistband of my boxers.
I like em barely below my knee. I try to get as much leg in there(I'm 5'6") without showing my knees.
I hate shopping.
:shock:He must shave everyday now.
I think that depends on how tall you are because my 9" shorts are a couple of inches above my knees, where I like them.
Now here are some REAL tennis shorts:
Just at or a few centimeters below my knees.
Right at the knees.
my shorts make venus williams' shorts look like nadal pants
one or two inches longer than those and slighty looser fitting are ideal. Long shorts are a fashion no-no. It's tennis not surfing or hanging out by the pool or beach.
i like it slightly above, even tho it works only for sports, not daily life
Did know one tell you all? The shorter the better.
I can't tick any of the above - could you add an option for "nuthuggers"?
Oh God, i never ever want to see you play.
Long 13 or 15". That's why I buy Nadal's shorts.
9' for me...i hate playing in baggy/ long shorts...
haha and that reminds me. most people who wear the nadal capris say they get better movement on the court...i never understood that. why not just buy really tight shorts then?
Especially on hot days, I prefer my Shorts to be slightly above my knees.
My tennis shorts are about midway to my knees - about a 5 or 6 inch inseam. (I'm 5'7"). I hate long "shorts"!
The longer the better.
^^^But Rickson, don't you want to intimidate your opponents with your uber muscular legs?
i like the slightly above the knee ones please,,, thank,UUUUU
this reminds me of this coworker i hit with all the time
he would choose the ones shown on the picture
anyway, first time we setup a time to go hit, dude is in his late 60's, shows up with cargo shorts, a little baggy, i tought ok maybe he likes does, so i think nothing of it, because they look normal, alittle above the knee type, no big deal
i start to get my stuff out my bag with him next to me, since there was only 1 bench for that court and we had to share it, no choise,,
anyway i take my racquets out and thats when he drops trouuu, under the cargo shorts he has the small azz shorts like on the picture, white in color and all, but this guy must have bough 1 or maybe even 2 sizes too small, damm things are ridiculous short and tight,,,
well as you can imagine, thats about the time when i start walking to the other side of the court, laughing my azz off internally and trying to distance myself form him as much as possible
funny shorts and all, he is still a very good counter puncher, as are most old timers who still play,,
too bad they dont update their clothing when the times change
