    Been to Queens, took a camera, here's a sample (of some 300 pix so far).

    Sorry the quality isn't amazing.

    Nothing against Stella. Good beer, but did they have to make everything except grass bright red?

    I'd imagine that's the reason it's all red, which I think is nice considering most tournaments are all blue/green.

    Well, I like it. I think it contrasts nicely with the green of the grass.

    Man, I remeber the last time that Roddick wore an all red shirt. At the 2006 tmc. I never thought that he'd do it again. Looks great on him.

    wonderful photos --- thanks...

    Nalbandian is sporting a gut --- Roddick looking in shape.

    I usually like red but too much and you think you are in a communist party meeting, or engulfed in Turkish flags...

    I don't know. It is too high contrast to me.

    Anyway, enough about colors, great pictures though.

    interesting though. Are Pros required to wear a certain kind of set of clothes matched by the companies? Or do they come up with their own stuff?

    That red is an eyesore ... anyway, thanks for the pics, Rhino.

    Is Mahut there by any chance ? Any other frenchmen ? Simon ?

    Thanks CC. No I don't try to meet the players, I only like watching tennis and taking pics, but sometimes it's funny watching other people "meet" them.

    here are some more.....

    Rhino, these are really great, and it's very nice of you to post them for us tennisless saps. This is by far the thread of the week!! :)

    Wow, this is how to not be cool in the presence of greatness. Look at his face...it looks like the poor guy is gonna crap himself. lol.

    Ouch, very bad colour choice Tipsarevic. Black socks with white shoes - oh well, he's one of my fav's this year and he makes it work somehow.
