    Had a meeting with some Lotto folks this week and they claim that LOTTO is the number 1 brand at the open this year.

    Saying that 38 or 39% ( i don't remember the exact number as we were polishing off wine bottle number 2) of the players competing are decked out in it.
    Funny issue is that most all players didn't get their stuff until just the other day at the VERY last min.....stuff was super late and some execs back in bella Italia were going nuts!!!!

    I have seen a lot of Lotto sneaks out there. The red ones are pretty sweet.

    My thought as well but they are claiming that 30+whatever percent of the pros on court are wearing lotto.........I'm curious if that includes all of the players in qualies as well or just main draws?

    Hope to run into one of the lotto reps later this week to get exactly what numbers they are using.

    BUT tons of players are wearing Lotto goods and they like Asics have been super aggressive getting players stuff.

    Maybe he slipped a decimal point...that sort of coverage would be overkill, anyway, I'd imagine.

    Nike and Adidas aren't going to freak out. Let's wait until the 2nd weekend to see what's on TV for the big viewer numbers....

    Lotto still had to copy a 3 yr old design touch of Nike's - the strip at the bottom of the neck.

    Yeah, and I won't be surprised if he doesn't make it to the SF.

    It's nice that there are choices (and I wish TW US got all the Lotto shirts - I'd get a few); but tennis is still a Nike/Adidas world.
