    The guy Mardy Fish beat in the second round of the US Open, Malek Jaziri, was wearing some colorful Puma crews, did anyone catch this? I was assuming they would pop up for sale by now, but they haven't. Anybody see these for sale anywhere?

    Yeah I thought so, but why is Puma dragging on these?

    Jokinla,
    I have no idea. I try to wear at least one piece of Puma gear while playing. Mostly sock. I wish Puma would have more of a present in tennis again.

    I have said this before, although not about Puma, but I don't understand why these manufacturers dress people in their clothes, on big stages, but then don't put those clothes on the market. Do they think that just putting out anything with their label on it will suffice. Puma must have known one of their players was playing on a show court at the US Open, against an American player, thus millions would be watching, so why would you not want to immediately sell the shirts the guy was wearing. If Puma would have had a booth at the Open, I guarantee plenty of those shirts would have immediately sold.

    Where can I buy Jaziri's Outfits and which racket and string tension does he use?

    Thanks

    I have the opposite problem, I never understand who would buy all these flashy pro shirts. I never see anyone at the local club playing in these, never see anyone playing the local courts wearing this stuff. Maybe some juniors... maybe.
    But honestly, if you're not in the top 100, is it really wise to be playing tennis in showy gear like that?

    Didn't see his stuff from today, good luck finding it though, never saw the US Open stuff.

    I like to think the other way. If you like something, than what's wrong with wearing it?

    His pic on his player page on the FO site has him in a bright yellow shirt, another one that would be of interest, but of course it's not available.
