    Can you compare their sizing against the Adidas or Nike apparels?

    sure , the shorts are tight and slim fit . this is evidenced by djokovic and the shorts he wears. i bought large, im normally an adidas medium.

    the medium polo fit fine

    well. its not official joker stuff as it doesnt say his name or the two red uni qlo logos.

    however they are selling the polos under his picture at the wimbledon store.

    actually they are selling a host of diff colour polos and shorts under his picture at the wimbledon store.

    i bought off white polo with black shorts

    If it doesn't have the red logos then it might just be the regular athletic stuff they sell at the stores. I still have yet to see any branded Uniqlo sports clothing available anywhere. I was in Taiwan in April and they didn't even have any Nishikori stuff in the Uniqlo stores I went to. I've been watching the bay as well to no avail. :-?

    With pleasure, sir.
    It's already annotated on the picture, but the top row (left to right) is:
    Australian Open 2012 'Biceps' Polo, Authentic Club Staff Practice Tee I got from Novak himself after watching him practice at Indian Wells this year. I had to profess my love for him and I asked for his racquet like in Wimbledon, but he smiled and said no. Then I asked for the shirt off his back (I was wearing the full AO Kit while talking to him) and he reluctantly said yes!! Fortunately, I have a similar structure as him (6 ft 1, skinny upper body) so it fits me perfectly and I practice in it regularly. Next is the US Open 'Nax' night polo in one of my favorite colorways ever (Navy/Coral) and I had a friend of mine from Brussels send it to me because it was nonexistent in the US of A! Unfortunately it fits terribly and feels like a cheap polyester rag.

    Bottom row (Left to Right)
    Australian Open 2012 Shorts. These fit SO amazing and light. Tacchini got it right with these. Next is the Australian Open Jacket which was quite expensive...but it fits perfectly and it honestly surpasses the Rafa and Federer jackets in quality, maybe I'm just a sucker for ribbed cuffs and stuff like that. Moving along are the French Open 2011 'Rainbow' shorts which are another of my favorite patterns ever. I just wish I had the top to match it. The shorts are long and slimmer, which is a common inconsistency throughout Tacchini's sizing. I got them off TennisExpre$$, ironically, about half a year after their release on clearance for around 15$ shipped!! Finally is the US Open 'Nim' short. These may be my favorite fitting shorts. They're extremely slim and I love how they make my legs look. They had an 'internal underwear' but I cut it out. Also, they are unlike Novak's actual ones - the retail ones had the white butt, while Novak's were all Navy, and probably a darker hue.

    Is the club staff tee made by ST also? It looked like any ordinary Abercrombie to me :confused:

    As you wish. I resized the image so it's not as ridiculous. Apologies for the large image in the previous post.

    And here's a picture of Novak wearing the shirt from google images

    If I recall correctly, there were multiple colorways of this shirt (Heather, White, Olive, Navy) and Novak and his family wore it throughout the year.
