Sigh. This may sound condescending, but trust me, it's not. Let me educate you, because you're clearly not up to speed with this after so many years of watching tennis.

(1) Most of the time, the player does not come up with those fashion accessories. The company, in this case, Nike, does.
(2) All of the time, the player does not care about the kind of reaction. The company, in this case, Nike, does.

On TV they show players working together with the company's fashion designers. They show people talking about their fashion. Maybe, this misleads you, I'm not sure. It is usually a sham, just more publicity. They say it and they forget about it. You should, too.
