    They are Kallasy ankle braces. These ankle braces are not one-size fits all.

    Roddick wears ASO ankle braces, which is apparent from the black/green ASO arrow logo on the front of his braces.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    I believe Hewitt also uses ASO braces. They are available at www.medspec.com. No ankle braces should be one size fits all, they should fit your feet and the angle of your ankle (especially the area around the bone protrusion that the braces are meant to stabilize).

    Roddick wears ASO ankle braces. I have a pair myself. Roddick is really the only tennis pro I can think of that wears this particular brand. ASO is extremely popular among NBA players. Vince Carter, Ray Allen, Chauncy Billups all wear ASO Ankle Braces. Kallassy ankle braces seem to be more popular among tennis players; Hewitt, Srichaphan, and Grosjean all wear Kallassy braces.

    which ones are more comfortable, the ASO's or the Kallassys? Or are there any other brands that you would recommend? I recently broke my ankle and i'm currently looking around for ankle braces so that it can be worn while playing tennis.
