    I'm jealous that Sharapova still has the Vapor S2s. Why won't Nike re-release these with XDR or something? Sharapova swears by them... I do, too!

    So can these celebrities actually play tennis or were they just messing around? Brad is a great actor, and even better if he plays tennis! ;D

    ^ I've wondered too... but that looks like a proper continental grip, right there.

    As for Bar Refaeli, well, I can care less whether she plays or not... :p :mrgreen:

    If they get paid millions of dollars to do so, I'm sure they'll wear whatever.

    We like to call it "Selling Out."

    The one on the right could go with the Rafa wimbledon crew, the swoosh looks more orange than it does pink.

    Just throw it out there: Rafa US Open Crew, good shirt, but potentially the worst design flaw ever: WHO CHOSE TO PUT THE LABELS ON THE SHOULDER?
    Seriously, drove me insane within 3minutes and tore them out. Couldn't get over it, bizarre

    There's no seams on the side where the labels usually are, so i guess that's why they chose to put it there.

    Yeah they started that with the Spring Sony Ericsson crews, it is very annoying and Nike will find that 90% of people cut them out!

    Next year's shoes will emit color-coodinated laser beams and include a halo of negative ion-producing bulbs around the midsole, which will act to deodorize the feet of the wearer and also rid the air near the shoes of harmful pollutants. Look for the Australian Open to flood Rod Laver Arena with smoke as Rafa enters the stadium for his first match, and then listen for the collective gasp of the crowd as Nadal's shoes completely clean the air by the time warmups are complete. $379.99 at select Nike retailers. Organizers at Tennis Australia, when asked about the dramatic entrance, said "Not a chance, mate."

    I found this interesting article and decided to share with you all.

    The US Open kicked off this week in Flushing Meadows, and fans of the game and fashion alike are pumped to see what their favorite players will be sporting on the court. Since the tournament overlaps with the beginning of Fashion Week, a high caliber of tennis attire has become expected, not to mention high-drama matches that keep us up until the wee hours of the morning.


    Nike — no shock here — sponsors tennis greats Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams (devastatingly out of the tournament because of injury), and Maria Sharapova, all Grand Slam winners and four of the game’s best-dressed. Once again the company has upped the ante with their players’ wardrobes, and we asked Janice Lucena, creative director of Nike Global Tennis, to answer a few questions about how the outfits come to life.




    What is the process of designing the players’ outfits?

    The process begins about 18 months before the event event starts. We look to give our athletes the latest in performance innovation, be it eliminating seams, using higher-performing materials, making the garment lighter, or eliminating distractions with cleaner methods of finishing.

    Once we’ve nailed the performance benefits, we start the creative process. One of the fun parts of the design process is that tennis is (for the most part) an individual sport, and this allows our designers to express the personalities of the different athletes through the designs they create.

    We include the athlete in the development of the design, and it’s very much a collaborative process. We also try to include any inspiration or details that they themselves may bring to the table. Understanding the personality of each athlete, their preferences, and their style of play on court also contributes to the design process.

    How does the US Open look differ from that of other tournaments?

    There is a bit more glamour and flash associated with the US Open. The stadium is bigger than Roland Garros [site of the French Open] or Wimbledon, for example, adding to the drama around the night matches that can sometimes run late into the evening. Designing around the US Open is approached with a bit more fun, a bit less tradition, as it’s the tennis “Closing Party” of the Grand Slam year. Coming off of Wimbledon, it’s always fun to return to color again, and just the energy of New York is an inspiration!

    How many different outfits do you make for the tournament?

    In New York we play up the day-match/night-match contrast — meaning we’ll offer Roger, Rafa, Maria, and Serena one look for day and a different look for night. We also offer a Team Maria look as part of her performance collection as well as a variety of different looks for the amazing athletes we work with around the Open.

    Do superstitions play a role?

    Yes! Each player definitely has his or her own likes and dislikes. Usually the superstitions are around a color they’ve won or lost in before, a fabric they particularly like, or even a silhouette preference (for example, a polo instead of a crewneck).

    What technology do we not see from the stands?

    There are a lot of performance benefits that are not visible from the stands. Roger Federer’s polo, for example, is the best expression that Nike Tennis has to offer around the idea of “zero distraction.”

    The placket is a crisp, lightweight woven fabric that is constructed with bonding [a no-sew method of garment-making], and which uses laser-cut rather than sewn buttonholes to eliminate weight. The side seams, shoulders, and armholes are bonded together, so overall we’re able to eliminate excess weight from the garment and reduce chafing where seams meet the skin.

    Rafa’s US Open crewneck top is a seamless garment, so it is knit on a machine in one continuous piece, eliminating side seams and again removing distractions. It is lightweight and as always constructed of Dri-FIT fibers to keep him cool and dry on court.

    Maria’s night dress infuses traditional craftsmanship and dressmaking details with modern performance benefits. The bodice of the dress is straddle-stitched to call attention to the corsetry-inspired seaming. There is a built in performance inner bra with Dri-FIT power mesh. The mesh skirt top layer is ultra-lightweight, and the collar detail is a crisp Dri-FIT lightweight stretch woven material, the design of which plays on a traditional lapel shape.

    Thanks for the post.

    Interesting to note that the players have a say / take an interest on colours etc. I would have expected that based on their significant sponsorship packages they would simply accept what they were sent. I suppose it makes sense that neurotic, superstitious athletes like Rafa would seek to minimise any 'distractions.'

    Babolast, thanks. That is interesting.

    I found this about Adidas' approach:

    "we find a piece of cloth, cut it to look like a shirt, and put 3 stripes on each arm."

    (ok, I made that up)

    In my opinion the new Federer Polo's fit true to size (again) not slim fit like they used to be.

    Wow. I'm half dazzled by all the technology (not to mention how she talks about it!), and half amused by the fact that they tout things like laser cut buttonholes as a weight saver. I'm sure Federer is much quicker now that he doesn't have to haul around all that nasty thread. :)

    I really like how Nike misrepresents the Lunar Lites as what Fed wears.

    Its pretty damn deceiving.

    Nike Fall 10 just got 36% cheaper in the UK / Euro market :wink:

    Finally cheap enough to justify the purchase of the solar red Vamos Lawn Crew I have been fantasising about since the summer! :razz: Wearing therma baselayers now, so will have to wait to rock it until the spring.

    Nike UK / Eur themselves. Be vigilant for two extra codes in clearance.

    Anyone know where I could find some apparel from the nike fall 2010 line (or willing to sell)? I've been able to find stuff being sold from as late as 2002 but nothing from 2010...
