    This year the spring and summer collections were not avaiable to the public in USA.

    Next year Del Potro will use crews. The same as Nadal.

    Monfis went to K-swiss

    What you think??????

    They should keep doing them, if I were a pro player playing in the heat they do every week I would wear them no doubt

    I love sleeveless shirt, especially on a hot summers day so this is a bummer.

    There is no actual proof here that Nike will stop making them. I mean about 7/8 years ago when it was pretty much Ginepri and Moya wearing them they still made them, then when nadal started to use them around 04 they put a lot in to them. Where has the info came from that Delpo is wearing crews next year?

    really disappointing, i'd love to see rafa back to the pirate look or at least back to the sleeveless again. i think nike was trying to make him into the "elegant" #1 that they dressed roger up to be. but i felt rafa's pirate look was more a grinder, muscle-er style much like rafa vs. roger's more fluid style of play.

    enough of that, nike needs more sleeveless because i love them! i just like the way sleeveless shirts feel when i play compared to crews and polos, plus then we can fistpump like nadal and intimidate our opponents. :)

    With all due respect that could be word of mouth and nothing more. However you normally hear the right things so probs true. The main point is I cant see Nike not making sleeveless tops, maybe they wont have many players wearing them but they will still make them.

    I guess we will have to wait a week or so until the Spring 2011 pics start to leak.

    Its strange that Nike are not selling the sleeveless tops in the US because I would have thought that the US was the biggest market for it, seeing as you have a lot more people than we do and a better climate. Just strange.

    I don't mind the pros wearing sleveless so much. They are in good shape. It's the 40-year-old weekend warriors that wear them that make me wince. Good riddance to them.

    Try 40-year-old fat guys wearing speedos and 60-year-old women at the topless beaches. lol.

    People can wear a sleeveless whenever the they like. At least they're still playing tennis.

    BTW, the Nike Spring Sleevelesses are on NikeTennisStore.com.
