Let's see if I can top these. Nice collection, again.
Nice collection. I must own at least 7 of that navy Global Control Polo you have at the top middle.
the rest of mine
This thread is amazing! Genius Supermario343! It's awesome to see other peoples awesome collections, I like to see all the different collections with all the stuff no longer available, it's cool.
haha thanks for the pros actennis i love this thread myself...i felt it was a good way of sharing what they have and being able to socialize about tennis
tumalow..do u like adidas or nike apparel better?
Ac Tennis How Did You Get Feds Vapor V's Us Open?!?!?!?!?!?!
they had them on e bay for about $400 as they were limited edition only sold at the US open. you might get lucky and find a pair if you want them bad enough. i love the roger federer is the man w/the magic racket shirt. i had the hard court specialist shirt but sold it on e bay because it shrunk too much when i washed it.
$400 wow lol...some chunk of change for such a nice shoe..its like a jordan special
I was told there were only 25 pair of them made and only sold at the us open. I saw one pair on **** it was about 8 months ago and they ended at $970, they were a size 10 like mine.
eh idk depends on which stuff comes out sometimes i like the adidas stuff better and vice versa but lately i think the adidas lines have been pretty sweet
*just posting shirts and hats for now*
I have a few more shirts i wanna post but gotta findem first.
*will post shorts and shoes later*
(the red hat is signed by bob and mike bryan and the 2 houston hats are each signed by andy roddick)
Hehe, nice collection. Just give me a few more days. I'll show you guys my stuffs when it is cooler here. Damn, global warming.
great thread! everyone that posted pics has all Nike clothes, how come no one with adidas?
I would post pics but my collection is rather small. I have 7 adidas shirts, and 2 shoes (Barricade IV and V). I also have 2 pairs of "tennis shorts", 1 from adidas and 1 from nike. no big deal...
^^^i have 2 adidas shirts in there if u look closely. and a sergio tacchini, bcg tennis, etc...
While not quite as nice as Mick's authentic, here is my replica version of "The Greatest Tennis Shirt of All-Time".
haha TB45 my collection isnt huge myself but i still posted...post what you got, its fun!
You want adidas?...I'll give you adidas:
I pretty much only wear adidas while playing. And as you can see, it is all fairly basic stuff.
^ gotta love it! its plain, simple, efficient, it works!
I would wear adidas when I want to be Ivan
Adidas Warm up Jacket with 2 Roger Federer Hats
yep. i think it's even shorter than some of today's women shorts
Wow you guys have so much i just play in whatever i got prolly just 3 tennis shirts or so and more shorts
^ i hope you wash them after your matches haha..thats just one of the reasons why i have many shirts and shorts
^ ooooo benz! lol..do u have a bmw racquet too? haha love it
nope but I have a car to match the shirt and racquet
haha damn dude! that thing is sweet..what do u do for a living
I look at the computer screen for 8 hours and then go home
This MB model is not expensive like the other MB but it's the only one I like because it can be ordered with a manual transmission. I just don't like to drive automatic transmission cars. I feel I have nothing to do.
sweet deal lol..w/e works man and that is a beautiful car im jealous
don't be. this car depreciates like crazy and the dealer charges a lot for maintenance works and it's not as trouble free as other cars.
The only cool thing about it is when I drove it to the SAP Open tournament, they directed me to the MB parking spot which was closer to the entrance
I bought a few Fila F-Box shirts when they first came out and a few more before they were sold out. The older ones have larger logos than the later ones.
left (later one) right (older one)
so did your mercedes dealer you bought the car from hook u up w/that mercedes shirt and racquet?
by the way: is this you in this tennis video mick? http://youtube.com/watch?v=0wmG2WXC7N4
i think they only gave me free floormats
Nope. I play more like a 4.0 Chrissie with a one hbh . I never meant to copy her but that's how I play
^^^not a bad gal to emulate...after all, the avg. 4.0 or even up to 5.0 guys 1st serve is about the same speed as a wta tour woman's serve...so the games must be similar too. Chrissie has a good all around game. If i played like a wta player it would have to be kuznetsova, my forehand is similar as i follow across my body but my serve looks like boris becker.
i used to copy all the top male pros but that seemed to hinder my development as a tennis player.
one day, i decided to abandon everything and hit the ball the way it came most naturally to me and that's how it came out.
so, I would only copy how some of the top male pros would dress, not how they would hit the ball
cool lets keep it going with the pics!

Dude, I envy you for having my #1 idol's gears.
Ivan was well using the Pro-T when he was wearing that apparel.. That Racquet was when he won the French in 84..
I got a Pro-T but I don't want to string it because it is brand new.
But that's okay. I have a shirt to match the GTX-Pro racquet
^^^man! that lendl racket is worth like $500 on e bay
Oh Leelord, I'm disappointed!!! :cry:
First of all, there is no comparison between a 4.0 and 5.0 guy. 5.0 guy will blow 4.0 guy off of court.
Second, NO 4.0 guy's serve is going to even come close to a WTA pro serve. You need to go see some in person if you haven't already.
I've returned a 4.0 guy's serve in mixed with no problem. Maybe he was a weak 4.0, I don't know...but there's no way I'm getting a WTA pro serve back.
I don't know how fast the average 4.0 male player can serve but Anna Kournikova's average first serve (2003) was 121 KPH (75 MPH). She was probably better than the average WTA player at that time.
^^You coudn't return my serve! Muahahahahahah
But I do agree with you. People on these boards would learn a lot from hitting with a pro/former pro. They would be in for a big shock.
You're not a 4.0 silly!!!
So, you picked the one WTA player that, other than possibly Dementieva, is known for her weak serve.
Also, 'at that time'. Now is a different time. There is a lot more power now, even as you get down in the ranks.
Again, don't take my word for it. Go watch some WTA pros. These 4.0 and 4.5 guys who think they can take a WTA pro are *dreaming*.
^^^ I know. I'm a 2.5
I am hitting tomorrow with a girl who is ranked # 4 in the nation in singles. I guarantee, she will beat about 90% of the posters on this forum, and she is nowhere near a pro. Oh, and she will take out any 4.0 and even 4.5 player. Oh, and she hits her serve around the 100 mph mark.
Same goes for the # 4 doubles player I hit with the other day. I believe you and Sup faced her when playing mixed doubles (she was playing with carlos).
i picked Kournikova because I wanted to find the average 1st serve speed of the average WTA player.
Serena Williams, Justine Henin, Maria Sharapova are not the average WTA players. They can serve as fast as some guys on the ATP tour.
Oh yeah...I remember her! Very nice lady...*incredible* player. Lol, I still have nightmares of that match, and Carlos' FH rolling away, away, away...and I run, but never catch up!
Think we've hijacked this thread sufficiently? Drak, post some shorts, quick!!!
