Novak to Lacoste

yes, it will happen at the RG17.
His contract with UNIQLO (my favorite brand) ends in June and neither side is interested to extend it.
Nike was interested.
Lacoste was faster with an attractive offer.

Interesting...

Source ? What numbers are we talking about ? Roland Garos starts in May btw.

His first tournament with Uniqlo was 2012 Roland Garros, so switching to a new sponsorship around the same time of the year sounds reasonable.

This is good news. What is the source of your info?

Would be cool to see Novak switch to Asics shoes as well but he'll never drop the barricades probably.

Actually, I think it's a pretty good fit. A touch of French arrogance! (which I can safely say, being part french myself, lol)
They are the best polo shirts, in terms of quality. I have owned a few, and they lasted years of constant wear. I prefer Fred Perry though, being an old mod and all :)

Way overpriced.
I just loaded up on the UNIQLO stuff in Tokyo for $25 per top/shorts.

Well yes and no. You cannot exclusivley buy lacoste (or Fred Perry for that matter), or else you will have to go without food for a days (or eat rice and beans for weeks).

But they ARE quality wear, that is for sure. You get what you pay for, generally, and Lacoste are quality wear. They will last, and are never really out of style.

No doubt about it.
However, I've had the uniqlo outfits since 2013, in Texas, washed it over and over, double rinse cycle, dryer, dragged them to China, Japan, Taiwan, Europe, India, etc. and they look great, almost like new.

I agree with both of you. Both Lacoste and Uniqlo are quality products. But with Lacoste you also pay for all-time classic and top tennis fashion brand. I like both but Lacoste is a different story, especially technical tennis clothes. Fred Perry also, but they make now very little real tennis stuff.

Love Uniqlo. Cheap and great quality. Simple and understated designs. Paid like $10 per Dry-Ex polo when they were on sale that I use for tennis. Even Nole's or Nishi's outfits are like $35 USD per piece only. I also use their Heattech stuff, cotton basic tees, casual shirts, underwear, socks, almost everything. lol

That's great news: there is hardly a more tennis brand out there than Lacoste (Fred Perry is very close.)
I love what Uniqlo did for Nole and it made me appreciate this Japanese clothing store quite a lot!

They should be pretty deep…they sell polo shirts that probably cost 3 bucks to make for $70 all over the world.
Yeah and Nike takes .80 cents of chemicals and turns them into $100 shirts that get redesigned every 6 weeks..........

I've had some of my RL12 classic cotton Lacoste's for 10+ years. Also not a big fan of the Lacoste technical stuff - also $$$$

I never said Nike didn't do the same thing.

I thought Djokovic and Uniqlo were a good fit, but I think Lacoste would fit him well enough; presumably he'll stay with adidas shoes.
