fashion flashback: tennis masters cup's opening ceremonies



The opening ceremonies at this week’s Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai (which starts today) reminded me of the silk outfits the guys had to wear back in 2005.

While I’m all for using a tennis tourney to spread the host city’s culture to the world, I just didn’t find the clothes flattering on Andre Agassi and Alberto Costa at TMC 2005.

Top 8 men of 2006

In 2006 the organizers smartened up and went sleek. They put all the guys in black mandarin collar suits with boutonnières. (Blake, Davydenko, Federer in the front row; Mirnyi, the Bryans, Damm, and Leander Paes in the back)

  1. Those outfits are a hella of lot better than the cowboy hats they had to wear in Houston a few years back…Marat Safin in a cowboy hat is something I don’t ever want to see again
