fashion focus: tacchini designs with nole’s shoulder in mind

by

Free-swingin’: Top seed Novak Djokovic is still in the running for the 2011 U.S. Open — he faces Roger Federer in the semis — and he’s going through the draw in surprisingly plain gear from Sergio Tacchini. (Did they peak too early?)

Recycling: The orange piping from his spring hardcourt run — one of our fave looks for the year — returns along with some white stripes to decorate his navy blue evening kit; the day polo gets navy piping. Of note is the single-panel, all-mesh construction under the sleeves that continues seamlessly down the side of the shirt — a result of careful ergonomic studies into how Novak moves his shoulder. Everyone’s worried about that part of his body, eh?

Buy: ST Men’s Nax Tennis Polo, $85, tennisexpress.com.

    I usually like Tacchini on other players. But I’m not a fan of Djokovic’s outfits. The fit doesn’t look very athletic and they look like uniforms.
