So, it's a been a couple of days now and we've all seen some matches. Any kits worth talking about? The pickings look . . . slim. Lets have it. Give us the good, the bad, and the fugly.

Did anyone catch Rublev's kit? Black and grey. He looked like a pretty normal dude at the gym. Nike has really been mailing it in recently (not across the board, but things have been SO boring since USO last year).

That shirt was actually obsidian. I actually prefer the sleeveless that Tiafoe (wore) and Alcaraz is currently wearing. Makes sense that those are PE cause sleeveless sales unfortunately doesn’t cut it.

uniqlo- kei's kit is the standout of rg


Lacoste noel: rg colors are getting predictable but kit as a whole is good


Lacoste Medvedev: didn't blow me away but tasteful


le coq- colors are predictable & pattern isn't mind blowing but id take this over the blandness of Adidas + nike


asics- looks like they copied le coq


fila- yikes


NB- Raonic kits are usually decent but these are atrocious

I’m not usually a fan of K-Swiss gear but they have a nice kit that Norrie is wearing with the shirt bottom blending into the shorts color. The shirt pattern on chest and back is not outlandishly busy but still gives off a well thought out design. The back reminds me somewhat of the Nike ‘05 fedr mock zip crew, back in the day when Nike had a crack crew of designers.

He was also wearing a white version while he played doubles.

Is it with the lime green tones fading to white on the shirt? TW has that shirt/shorts combo listed as well as the lime green to dark transition that isn’t quite as appealing to my eye.

I ain't afraid of color . . . but there are a lot here. And I ain't even saying they don't look good. Blue, green, white combo is alright. But I think I'd have to do the shirt or the shorts, not both. Funny, those shorts remind me of my younger days when my boxers always seemed to be longer than my tennis shorts and they always showed. :D

Cool grey on the orange clay has to be the drabbest colour I've seen in a while. ZZzzzzz

How does Adidas not see that most of their clothes within the last 3 years have made their atheletes look as if they were drenched in sweat from the first second of their matches?
I don't think I mind the purple. I might actually like it. But I'm not sure. It may be too shiny for me.

You right though. Tsitsi looks like he sat in a bucket of water.

Yeah, that tie-dye part of the shorts is very strange to me.

I don't think I could get away with the shirt, either. Schwartman is small. I'm a big guy. I'd feel like a big ball of cotton candy. :p

Think I agree on the shorts. I ordered it but could also quite easily see myself sending the shorts back and wearing the shirt with some plain grey shorts.

I love the Nike dresses this year. Very tasteful.
On the opposite side of the spectrum is Serena once again. That woman's sense of fashion makes me lose faith in humanity.
Strange company, Nike. They can come up with something simple and flattering for one star . . .


and something so complicated and unflattering for another.

I’m sure both were involved w/ the design. If I remember correctly, Serena had like 4 different styles.

So, you're telling me that Serena looked at herself in this and said, "I look super cute in this!" Yikes.



That's when you call in a friend for a second opinion.

My vote for best outfit goes to Serena (high street all over) and Roger (everything looks good on him) ...

Can Lacoste stop "milking" this stupid design and come up with something new ... ?

The trouble is that Lacoste's Djokovic outfit is still the most tasteful of the ones put up so far.

If you're young and want to make a statement, however, I'd go with Fognini and swap-out the shoes.
