Wow. I'd almost forgotten how hideous these shirts were. Almost.
For some reason I dug this crew on Federer:
If anyone has an L... pm me.
This shirt is one that I wanted so badly when I was a kid - Laver wore it in red, green, and this navy blue. I searched high and low for it, and for the belted shorts...but, sadly, Puritan had no interest in selling me one. Bah!
I'd use this tracktop for the warm-up and post match interview.
And maybe this top during the game?
I recall there being a line of Rod Laver tennis clothes in the late 70s - early 80s. I believe it was lower end stuff sold in department stores...not a high end brand. This would have been after Laver retired so he probably didn't wear it in any major matches. Anyone else remember this?
I snagged the Federer AO 2005 shirt off ****, but it's white, and I had to size up one. I am willing to pay a lot for the blue one in medium. Beautiful shirt, though it fits strangely – sleeves ending at the elbows and all
I agree entirely. That jacket really gets me going; would be a wonderful Christmas present for max.
Thanks so much BHBH. Time to dust off the Ncodes!
This is the best one I've seen:
It is Boris Becker.
rafas 2009 ao daytime
next match, i am going to show up as borg
Was he complaining about something again?
It looks like a robot threw up all over his shirt.
Oh my:shock: If you really want to hurt me even more, please don't post up the Fila -Vilas line
The best tennis shirt ever....come to think of it, maybe the best shirt ever in the history of clothing. But I'd pass on the shorts, I'll take the longer modern ones.
And Mick, make sure you show up with your midsize wooden Donnay.
haha. i've got to use one of the standard size donnays so that everything matches!
last time i used it, one guy commented that i showed up to a tennis match with a ping pong racquet
no worries, i don't have any fila vilas stuff
Sorry, had to pick 3.
I have one. I love the shirt.
I have 2 of these shirts one in blue and one in white. i wish they still made shirts of this material. It's more cotton like which makes me feel more comfortable wearing it casually.
I still have this shirt and still wear it occasionally.
I still get wear out of that shirt. One of my favs.
Great Fila/Donnay pics above Mic and Capt. Willie. Now how about the Diadora shoes? Here's another vintage Borg shirt that go great with the red Diadoras. This is probably from the 1978 FO, where he lost 32 games the whole tournament.
i only have a light blue diadora
my hair is a little bit longer than his hair in that picture.
that shirt and shorts were from the US Open
this looks like the french open shirt.
Yes, Laver did some kind of deal with a Japanese company after his Puritan deal ended; pretty cheap stuff. I had a pair of the shorts, and they were weak quality-wise; the logo was glued onto the leg of the shorts.
Haydn Lewis from Barbados wore this shirt in qualies of the Houston ATP tourney in April this year
I am absolutely in love with this one
What year and tourny is this from?
These are the midsize, right? And as I recall you have some midsize Kramer's as well. You need to take a pic of yourself playing while decked out in the Borg gear.
Thank you! I'm glad someone remembered. I was starting to think maybe I was confused. Yeah, I thought it was pretty crappy stuff.
I think I have this shirt except it is all white w/ black stripes and logo. It has a zipper and is cut very large. The date in mine is 01/03....so I think mine was from the 2003 Australian Open. I'm guessing the one in this pick is from the 2003 French.
Actually, as I think about it, the "January 2003" date in mine is probably when it was manufactured. So it might be from a tournament later in the year....maybe Wimbledon given that it is all white. Hopefully someone else here knows.
actually, no those are standard size 65 sq in donnays
last week i showed up to the tennis court with a standard size 65 sq. in jack kramer and one of the guys asked me "john mcenroe's?" I responded "no, tracy austin's" (tracy austin used a jack kramer to win her first US open)
in the fila borg gear, they thought i was going for the johnny depp look :shock:
I got that Roddick hat. Drop me an email if you want to buy it from me. email@example.com
I got the Nadal crew. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I got this Federer crew in white in size L along with the matching black cool motion shorts. Email me email@example.com
Hey, I got this shirt in Black in size L. Email me if you're interested firstname.lastname@example.org
Feds shirt from the 05 Masters Cup in China. I dont remember what the tech was for the stuff on the back, but it was killer. Really light and dried insanely fast. Not to mention that the cut fit me absolutely perfectly. I bought this shirt in the white/blue colorway when it came out, my absolute favorite shirt of all time. If I could go back now I woulda bought at least one of every color.
Love this one too. IMO 2005 was by far Nike's best year for clothing in the 8-9 years that I've been involved in tennis.
the adidas edge from like 2009 in olive green. anyone have a new one for sale???
That's awesome you posted the 1988 - 1991 reebok shirt. I just got this one:
...to add to the exhisting collection.
damn straight. i'd pay serious money for a vintage one of those in good shape.
FYI for anyone interested in this shirt - A size large just popped up on the big auction site... Item ID : http://cgi.****.com/260724845040
I'd put those shorts in my top five list. But I'll pass on the shirt.
