tommy robredo keeps it classic

May 28, 2009

Spaniard Tommy Robredo is through to the third round after straight-set wins over Adrian Mannarino and countryman Daniel Gimeno-Traver. Robredo’s keeping things simple this week, playing in plain Sergio Tacchini polos (accessorized with a TW Steel watch). He next faces Maximo Gonzalez and will likely fall in the fourth round to the winner of Djokovic/JC Ferrero.

the aussie open in greyscale

January 19, 2009

At this year’s Australian Open, players are celebrating the Australian summer with bright kits in shades of blue, green, orange, yellow. But there are some who have chosen a cleaner black-and-white slate, leaving their tennis games to do the talkin’.

Don’t adjust your screen: Spaniard Tommy Robredo defeated Bobby Reynolds 6-2, 7-5, 6-1 in the first round. Robredo wore a simple Sergio Tacchini polo to complete his look. Compatriot Feli Lopez disappointed us with his anemic Joma kit. The 27th seed lost to Gilles Muller 6-3, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 4-6, 16-14.

Meanwhile, Andy Roddick couldn’t care less if he played in a potato sack (as long as he wins another Grand Slam!), so it’s no surprise to see another ho-hum shirt from Lacoste. His first round scalp was Bjorn Rehnquist, whom he beat by dropping only four games.

And top marks go to the sponsorless Australian Casey Dellacqua, whose wardrobe — with its moving Target bullseye — has shown us that black and white can be used to spice up many a tennis outfit; she’s had a few good ones since the beginning of this year. Who makes her clothes, anyway? Eh, it won’t really matter anymore this week. Dani Hantuchova took her out 7-6 (11), 6-4.

olivier rochus wears turquoise tacchini

Olivier Rochus - Sergio Tacchini - Indian Wells

That turquoise makes yet another appearance, this time in the battle of the shorties, aka Olivier Rochus d. Arnaud Clement 6-4, 6-4 in the first round of the Masters Series Indian Wells. (Nono doesn’t care — he’s in love!)

Rochus’ polo from Sergio Tacchini has the Italian company’s staple — horizontal stripes. Clement, meanwhile stayed in white Lacoste. (What do you think of Olivier’s shirt? Tell us!)

Tommy in the Dexter polo and Drey shorts from Sergio Tacchini

I had such high hopes for Spaniard Tommy Robredo after I saw him wear this Sergio Tacchini ensemble at the Australian Open in January. He took in the style from the halcyon days of Borg, McEnroe, Vilas — everything from the tight shirts, to the bandana, to the feathered hair — and made it work for 2007.

What do you think of this look? Tell us!

Unfortunately, Tommy’s Tacchini look has stagnated since, and even included a Nike-style misstep at Roland Garros which found him and Italian Filippo Volandri playing against each other in the same orange polo.

On the flip side, the fashionable Volandri has taken matters into his own hands, partnering with Dolce & Gabanna for Wimbledon and Emporio Armani at the U.S. Open.

What happened, Tommy?

a top 10 player to be stripped of his clothes?

August 27, 2007


Will adidas make a monkey out of Gonzalez?

The blind item mill churneth and its latest product is this: a current top-10 player will be dumped by his clothing company “when his contract runs out at the end of the year”.

So who will be mired in a fashion mess in a few months? Here’s the current list of sponsors, players (and their ranking):

Nike: Roger Federer (1), Rafa Nadal (2), Blake (6), Berdych (9)
adidas: Nole (3), Fernando Gonzalez (7)
Airness: Davydenko (4)
Lacoste: Roddick (5)
Sergio Tacchini: Tommy Robredo (8)
Limited: Tommy Haas (10)

It’s not Rafa, Roger, or Blake — who all have crazy-high Q ratings right now. Lacoste is still getting mileage out of Roddick. And adidas would be stupid to drop Nole. Even though he strips after every title win, the clothes stay on during matches.

So my picks are the inconsistent Fernando Gonzalez (finals of Aussie Open and Masters Series Rome but early exits everywhere else), Tomas Berdych, and Tommy Robredo. Robredo should really be with Fila anyway. Perhaps this’ll be his chance to do so?

fashion: a case for variety

June 3, 2007

Surely this Sergio Tacchini ensemble, worn by Tommy Robredo against Filippo Volandri, came in a color other than orange:

They should have given one of them another shirt, so we could tell the difference between the two players while they were battling on the clay. Oh well, there’s always next time.

(Robredo won the fourth round match 6-2, 7-5. 6-1.)
