Nole‘s snarky interview aside, the Serbian gets some props for infusing some new style and color into what was becoming a very monotonous (monochromous?) men’s tennis performance collection at adidas.

He started off his 2008 U.S. Open campaign wearing the same kit he’d been sporting all summer: the Edge Theme Polo and Bermudas in Lava (orange) and Mono Sky (blue). With this, Nole beat Arnaud Clement in the first round.
He then debuted the fall Edge colors — dark maroon and and rave green — when he beat Marin Cilic in the third round. Interesting use of different colored wristbands (one white, one black) for his outfit. Also, we’re relieved to see color blocks cut up after a few seasons of practically solid tees. And yay for Duchamp-esque optical illusion print on the shirt’s right sleeve!
In his match against Tommy Robredo in the fourth (and in his loss to Roger Federer in the semis), we saw the inverted version of the Fall colors.
