If you have not tuned in to the Benoit Paire and Marcel Granollers match, go and treat yourself. Although I’m please to see some players wear more tailored shorts, Paire is stretching the limit a bit. Pun intended. His shorts are so tight that his pockets are puckered. Does he look good in them? No. He looks amazing. He looks a bit uncomfortable, though. Maybe he does this so that it’s easier to get balls out of his pockets? Maybe he forgot his shorts and had to improvise? Maybe housekeeping got his laundry mixed up with the Juniors tournament? Maybe we should not question out good fortune- just enjoy the view.
I really like a lot of the tennis kits I’m seeing for 2017. So far the best looking one goes to Fila, for their Heritage Collection. I love the colors and the coordination. You can see their lovely kits worn by Marin Cilic, John Isner, Sam Querrey and Andreas Seppi . Fila gets an A+.
