i know it's not super practical . . . but then, neither are clamdiggers. or picking your panties out of your *sscrack after every point. long pants, with some give in them . . . doesn't sound too unreasonable. hehe

The amount of leeway that he gets is just insane. I never seen any one more relaxed infront of the media. He simply gets to do whatever he wants. insane.

On grass, he is.He is paying tradition to wimbledon.Its a classy jacket, something Nadal will never wear.

the real question is about the white pants...

are they made of nylon/polyester/cotton, or drifit? ...and do they come with "stain-defender technology"? ;)

At least he's not wearing a sleeveless shirt at Wimbledon. That's disgusting. I'm pretty sure even Moya and Blake wear something with sleeves at Wimbledon, but I could be wrong.

I thought he looked very classy. The pants were a bit much, at first I thought he was going to play in them. I was so glad when he unzipped those things and took them off.

Did anyone see the post-match interview with Roger? The last question he got was about the picture of him that went with how many challenges he had left. The reporter was telling him that the picture was rather unflattering.

The guy comes to the courts dressed formally and gets no respect?

What is this big-spinning-rock coming too.

Personally, I thought it looked refreshingly different, and the vest looked damn classy too. Seeing the aerial shot of wimbledon with the green and white-lined courts and all of the players dressed in white... it just looked great.

I liked the jacket last year, thought it was unique and it suited him.

But this get up today...plaleese! Its just all too much. The pants, the gold, and he has a white purse! he is a retrometro.
And with the roof gone and the tv screens, the outfit doesn't suit center court anymore...looks just like any other stadium.

Nope, Moya wore a sleeveless today. Remember when Haas wasn't allowed to wear one at the US Open?

I like fed, but that Jacket did not look cool today... the first thought that came to my mind was... Who's that, the Milkman...

it's an hommage (homage), people. yeesh!

the guy wears a white jacket and long pants at the grand old lawn tennis championships . . . and some of you get your panties in a twist. two weeks out of the year to show a little respect for our great game . . . and ya'll gotta criticize. i know it's hard for some of you to believe, but tennis actually existed before graphite racquets and sleeveless shirts. and before any of us.

Federer has got the classic look down. All he is missing is a 65 sq inch wood racquet like those used by the people in that picture :)

His opponent came out in pants as well. The look fits Federer, I'm sorry if people have a problem with that. He's won the tournament four times in a row, he can do as he pleases.

federer came out today in pure class....i saw some highlights and federer served a kicker out wide on the ad-court,...and it really kicked up...is this an unusual bounce on grass or my dreaded thoughts that they slowed the courts down even more this year....

why is he so obsessed with appearing classy and reserved?
how insecure is that?
I don't think he is obssesed with it necessarily, he just dresses in a classic style, and doesn't air all his dirty laundry to the media. To me it seems more mature and well adjusted than insecure, but that's just my opinion.

People criticizing him have no respect or knowledge of the history of the game.

If you asked me, it'd be great if he played in the trousers, presuming they're flexible enough.

And if you asked me, they ought to require players to play in long trousers and a shirt. Ban sleeveless shirts. And require players to use wood rackets at Wimbledon (actually, I think they ought to ban these modern rackets all-around in pro-tennis, just like in baseball players can't use metal bats).

I think that overall, Agassi became a great and respectful person, and a great champion. But what he did at Wimbledon was complete BS. Freedom of expression? Bull. That's leftist whining. You don't have the "freedom of expression" on someone else's property -- socialist punks don't respect private property rights.

I would love to see Roger play with a wooden racquet, it would be interesting, thats for sure.I still think he would do well with one.
