    Now I'm really not expecting anyone to be able to answer this but....

    At the 2009 Wimbledon final, Sampras showed up wearing these bomb ass Nike sunglasses:

    I remember looking online at the time and in shops everywhere (Nike shop included) and I could never find them:(

    Then yesterday's final made me think of it again as I do need a new pair at the moment.

    If anyone anyone could tell me the model number/name of them I'd be really grateful :) Its just one of those things that's annoyed me for ages!

    Where did he get all that extra hair--that's what I want to know.

    Oh oopsy, that's from 2009, I see.

    These really look awful with a suit.

    I'm pretty sure he wore them just so he could have something Nike on him for the cameras.

    Perhaps he was just trying to hide his bloodshot eyes after hoping on a plane in California to be there for the finals the next morning? If memory serves he was also late to the All England Club because he had just flown into Heathrow.

    Probably more likely, don't you reckon?

    Those glasses so do not belong there. Plus they are ugly as hell :)

    Holy Monkey, I didn't even recognize him in those things... He looks like a hybrid of 50% a drunk Bruce Willis + 50% drunk Mel Gibson. (For the record, I like both of them.)
    But those sunglasses are definitely not for Pete.
