    I know next to nothing about which wristbands were worn by specific people. I have these, and wonder if they are tennis-specific (as far as marketing goes), or a general Nike product. Thanks!

    Definitely not from 2010, more like 2005 or 2006, can't remember. They were worn by Nadal and Blake at the US Open that year. Fed wore the white with blue stripe. They are very rare. Good find.

    Cheers!
