    No, but all I see is men wearing clothes that match sherbet. I used to love Nike clothes but so much has too much on it or it is some pastel color. Stuff looks great on girls but on men...

    I'm not sure because Fed will be in some crazy designs for Fall and Winter plus bold blue and red shorts. I'm hoping Fed will be in something crazy for Spring 14.

    I agree about Rafa in orange as he has not been in that colour for a long time.

    Yes, but one of Nadal's AO 2013 colours was orange. Despite the fact he pulled off the tournament, but when the AO was ongoing, Nike section at TW was filled with orange. IIRC, it was purple shirt with orange accents, navy shorts with orange accents and orange CBs 4.3. So I dunno...

    True, I just think Rafa's due to wear orange as a primary colour soon and that this might be the tournament we see it. What colours do you see him wearing?

    Nadal US Open day shirt was blue and volt. He obviously did not wear it but it was made nonetheless. Also he is wearing blue and volt again when the holiday collection comes out.

    Things I haven't seen him wearing for quite a while. His RG 2013 gear also has orange accents: orange and grey shoes, orange (reddish orange though) shorts, orange accents on the T-Shirt, stuff like this. Federer also had his orange outfit this year. Maybe green, red, white or black. I don't fancy fluo colours, find them too flashy on court, and Nike goes overboard with it especially with Volt Yellow. It was nice the first time(s), but it's getting redundant. But Nadal does fancy those colours. I'd like some apple green to be honest. Not the darker green Federer was wearing (light purple in RG), but some light, candy apple green with white shorts. Haven't seen green for a while, and suddenly it appears in 2013; why not for Nadal?

    As for Federer... Well we know what his USO polos look like, as well as WTF. Don't remember him wearing red in AO, but he wore pink this year. He also said he wanted to do a year all in white in 2014, so wait and see for him.

    Would love to see Rafa in the green you describe, and agree that Volt has been overused lately and so needs a break. Doubt Fed will wear all white, but it's possible I guess so like you say we'll have to wait and see.

    I'm with you. Too risky to have 1 primary color for a Fed or Nadal for the whole year. Especially white.

    Got the platinum I'd called for a year or two ago. Still hoping for silver or gold for Fed.

    You mean main gold, or gold accents? Because if it's gold accents, he's going to have it this year.

    Crazy designs and colourful graphics ended, I think, by the late 1990s/early 2000s. The solid, mono-colour shirts you (and I) are so sick of will never change IMO. We will never see a return to the colourful ranges of yesteryear like Agassi Challenge Court, Courier Supreme Court et. al from Nike. Actually we will, but probably marketed as some ironic retro p!55take, like a lava and volt Dri-Fit shirt.

    It seems all Fedal apparel sold these days is deliberately designed to be anodyne and stylistically inoffensive so as to appeal to tennis gear sheeple with more money than sense. I'm often amazed by the ejaculatory excitement among fanboys whenever a new apparel range is released each and every sales quarter, like clockwork. The amount of hypoplexy generated by a shock new colourway or collar trim is amusing. Admittedly I used to feel the same way but then I had to wait at least a whole year, sometimes two before seeing what new designs adidas created for Lendl or Edberg.

    Well we know the stuff for Federer USO and WTF, but not Nadal, Del Potro or other Nike endorsees though. Hard to find indeed. :(

    Wow, the colorways definitely came out of nowhere. Nike is taking quite an unexpected turn for 2014.

    This doesn't add to the discussion but I have a friend who works at a European football store and they get these catalogues well in advance of future football boots and I get to see boots that won't come out for a year. Does anyone here know someone that works in the department of a store that stocks Nike tennis gear? They would have access to a catalogue which might have pics of 2014 in it.

    This mint was as good as it gets. Hope you enjoyed it in Madrid and Rome. Fed won't be wearing dark green at the retirement home in Dubai either.
