I’m playing on dirt? Okay, I’ll wear white!


(BTW, I’m sad Juan Monaco hasn’t quite rebounded from that ankle injury that derailed his clay streak; I hope he gets it together in time for the French!)

Andy Roddick finally sheds the grey color block and has some pinstripes do the talking in this short-sleeved Lacoste polo ($95; lacoste.com). And in case you’re wondering, the orange in their palette is named “Gladiolus”; the grey is “She-Wolf”.

Andy took out Mardy Fish in the second round of the Rome Masters and is battling Simone Bolelli as I type. Whodathunk the American would make it deeper into a clay tournament than Rafa Nadal?

Speaking of the hot Italian, Simone opts for the White/Grey version of the Lotto Kontact Polo ($42.99; TW). I still prefer the maroon accents on Juanqui‘s version.

Meanwhile, Andy Murray keeps his outfits low-key (he’s letting his hot head do all the talking) in this white Fred Perry kit.

The 16th seed lost to Stanlislas Wawrinka 6-2, 7-6 (7-5) — this after Juan Martin del Potro retired with a back injury to give Andy a spot in that second round match against the Swiss No. 2.

Filippo Volandri lost in the first round to Nicolas Lapentti 7-6 (8-6), 2-6, 6-2. He wore a white and blue shirt from EA7.

And mainstay Carlos Moya couldn’t keep up with Fernando Verdasco, losing in straight sets in the first round. For his kit, Nike moves Carlos away from Rafa’s blue Global Power Tank and dresses him in white ($55; TW.com).

    I, too am a huge Juan Monaco fan! Don’t you just want to be dancing with him in a Buenos Aires disco, like NOW? And if Laureus had a “sexiest newcomer” award, it would have to go to Simone B.
