    it looks totally goofy and stupid. he wears regular 7" short with XXL shirt that look really weird. not to mention scheme is also worst.

    he shouldve stick with reebook.

    1. he wore the same sizes with RBK.
    2. That's his preference.

    because it's what comfortable for him? I doubt he wears XXL as a fasion statement. Personally i like a well fitting shirt. Not tight, but just lose enough so it's not flapping around like a parachute.

    I think it is bc of his habbit. You know how he always likes to take both ends of the sleeves before he serves and pops them up?

    maybe he likes to have free movement and as was stated before he is a "large person" it is hard for him to do that with a smaller sized shirt. that would explain the sleeve popping as well, IMO.

    His wife is a model who sucks at doing the laundry and keeps shrinking his shirts. He has to buy them huge.

    He actually wears XL not XXL, at least during his Reebok days. I like my shirts baggy too but not as baggy as ARod!:)

    Some guys just don't like tight shirts. A slightly baggy shirt actually dries faster when it is soaking wet compared to a super tight one.

    Some puppeteer hides inside the shirt moving a-rod around the court.

    The only thing bigger than Roddicks shirts is his ego.

    You all hate baggy I guess. I hate Rafa and Fed in their creepy boy's medium shirts!

    Yeah, Roddick's shirts are way too big on him.

    I prefer the fitted shirts that Federer wears.

    Much classier look, IMO. :)

    nobody says Roger is wearing tight shirt or whatever so Rafa...

    I think it suits Roddick, imo.
    Besides, if everyone dressed the same it'd be pretty...awkward.

    This thread is humorous. I'm sure Roddick doesn't give a damn if we approve of his apparel. lol

    he's quite a sweater that Roddick. I never seen anyone sweat through a cap like he does.

    Probably because most Americans are overweight so would look terrible in fitted shirts. :(

    Yeah, you really hate to place a whole grouping of people into one category, but I can somewhat agree with this statement. More people would wear nicer fitting clothes if they did not have a gut to get in the way.

    However, more young people (I'm 25, so I'm thinking junior high and high school kids) are wearing tighter fitting clothes, fit or not. Styles have been changing, I guess more people need to notice.
