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.
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)
Charlie’s Angels: Robredo, Davydenko, Federer.
