The first round of the 96th Davis Cup starts on February 9. And for me, as much as this is a year-long battle of national prides, it’s also a showdown of fashion senses. Team uniforms add to the sense of team cohesion, especially because these guys are on their own for the rest of the year, each with their own individual sponsorship deals. The color palette usually follows that of the country flag — a challenge that can lead to plenty of hits and misses. In the next few weeks, I will be showing you the uniforms and outfits from the first tie.
