davis cup: Great Britain vs. the Netherlands


This tie produced some high-quality tennis and some great storylines (including Greg Rusedski‘s retirement and the continued success of the Murray brothers in doubles), but the uniforms left something to be desired.

I wonder why the Brits decided to go with a muted black and white for their outfits, especially since their warm-ups had so much potential. At least they coordinated?

The Dutch didn’t dress any better, though I see potential with the blue and orange/gold. (See Robin Haase‘s shirt, middle photo.) Their homework for next year: take inspiration from the Netherlands’ coat of arms.

Dutch MVP: Robin Haase
British MVP: no MVP
Winner: The Brits wore the same colors — a de facto uniform — but the Dutch showed some color. It’s a draw.
