    It's that time of the year where we discuss our hopes and predictions for the new year of tennis clothing and shoes.

    WHAT WE KNOW

    - New Vapor
    - New Lunar Ballistec
    - Nadal WON'T be in blue for the Australian Open.

    HOPES
    - Fed in white polo/green shorts for day AUS matches
    - Fed in Green polo/Black shorts for night matches
    - Nadal in mock neck with a actually DESIGN on this shirt.
    - Return of Capri pants
    - Bandanas with design on them
    - Aqua to be featured in the line
    - Shirts will BOLD designs

    PREDICTIONS
    - Fed in boring Red polo with white shorts
    - Rafa in Orange shirt with no design on the shirt.
    - The colours will consist of Red, Orange and Blue.

    Would love to hear your "Hopes and Predictions"

    Spring 2014? Not even Fall (USO)/Winter (indoors fast hard) 2013 first? As I already mentioned, Federer in black shorts, mainly white and yellow shirt for this end year or 2014. EDIT: the collar is yellow mainly and white near the neck. Very Del Potro-like colourway.

    I agree that Federer will be in a dull red polo, really want to see him in black and green though. Rafa I think will wear yellow for the AO, hopefully with some form of design.

    When will you get to see the line? And how come Nadal definitely won't be wearing blue in Melbourne?

    Rafa will be wearing two shades of blue for Winter 13. No chance he wears blue again for Spring.

    Based on what has been posted in the past, will the new Vapor use Lunarlon instead of Zoom Air? If so, I think I am going to stock up on the current design given what happen when the Vapor 6s were great then they switched the material on us with the 7s.

    I'm really curious about how the Vapor 10 will be received by current Vapor 9 people.

    i recently burned through my stock of Vapor 8 and finally got into some Vapor 9, and they are quite amazing.

    If it ain't broke, don't mess with it.

    I don't think it will change too much, maybe a little bit more toe protection. It's designed to be comfortable and lightweight for performance, not durability.

    What did you expect? You start next year thread before summer and fall of this year. Don't want to be harsh, but do things in the right order man.

    My dear Babolast - I think Nike design team might actually read your threads from time to time , How long has it been that you have asked to put Fed in neon-green T ? Look at madrid , just when we all have accpeted that fed is old & collared-polo's suit him , Nike just this once hears You.

    I think I'd like to see Aqua Nadala or Fed , like really soothing Aqua with bright neon-yellow blast design or something.

    The only confirmed new shoes for 2014 are the replacement for the CB 4.3.

    dude.. you're averaging 23 posts a day haha..

    Vapors 10s are almost a no brainer for 2014- You don't keep a signature shoe un-updated that long.

    I'm not saying it won't happen. I'm saying it wasn't confirmed.
    Commenting matches in the Match Result section kinda helps. :)

    I hope they don't mess up a good thing like they did when the Vapor 6s were good and they screwed it up by releasing the Vapor 7s and 8s.

    Just increase the durability of the shoe and you got the GSOAT!

    But I think intention wasn't bad, my feet are kinda wide and 7 & 8 suited pretty well. Vapor 6s were very supportive and best design I agree, but they were too narrow on my feet...:cry:

    Just a bit of more durability will help great deal~!

    I really liked the teal that Nadal was in for spring this year at Indian Wells. I hope that color comes back next year.

    Yes, Atomic Teal is a beautiful colour.

    Hope we get some shades of Aqua's, Teals and Seafoam Green.

    I was hoping they would bring back men's clothes that a man would wear. I would like less metrosexual stuff.

    Agreed. Pretty sure he's trolling too since there's a ton of plain blue/grey/white/black Nike tops, Nadal line included.

    Babolast- thanks for the clarification.

    If Nike insist on having Federer in blue and/or red then I hope they do that at IW and Dubai. But sadly I think it will be one of those for AO, the other for post AO.

    Must have changed my mind for Nadal about 5 times, but I think he'll rock a bit of orange in Melbourne and yellow in IW.
