    Just curious....why Murray and Djokovic were both wearing mismatched wristbands (one yellow and one white) when starting their match yesterday. Is that coincidence or some sort of planned thing? Thought it was odd both did that.

    Because it matched the colors of their outfits?

    Djokovic has been doing that for years now, ever since he started wearing on both sides - 2007 season. He rarely (mostly at Wimbledon or in some exhibition matches) wears matched ones. No idea about Murray though, it appears he does it quite often too. So just coincidence, I guess.

    Murray's adidas ones come in a pack of one white and one yellow.

    Some sweatbands are reversible, and i'm not talking about this particular case.

    It's called marketing........it's just different. adidas has been doing it for almost 2 years now. And if you want 2 yellow or 2 white of the current ones you need to purchase 2 sets!!!!!! Tada! adidas has you buying 2 sets at $10 each vs only 1.

    Murray is actually colourblind so may not have picked up the correct ones...



















    Probably.
