shanghai: the men clean up good

david ferrer - tennis masters cup 2007

Have you seen those photos from Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai’s opening ceremonies?

Simple lapel-less dark grey suits with light blue cheongsam-cut dress shirts on David Ferrer (above), Fernando Gonzalez, Richard Gasquet, and Nikolay Davydenko; while Andy Roddick and Novak Djokovic decided to pair their shirts with tuxedo jackets… what?!? Of course, prom queens Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal stood out in their black suits.

Gone are the silk fabrics and the flowers — a marked improvement from what they wore in 2006 and 2005.

See pics of the other seven guys (and a list of seedings and predictions) after the cut.

Below’s of seedings and groupings (for round-robin play).

Roger Federer - Tennis Masters Cup 2007

Roger Federer – No. 1, Red Group

Rafael Nadal - Tennis Masters Cup 2007

Rafael Nadal – No. 2, Gold Group

Davydenko, Djokovic, and Roddick - Tennis Masters Series 2007

Novak Djokovic – No. 3, Gold Group

Kolya Davydenko – No. 4, Red Group

Andy Roddick – No. 5, Red Group

David Ferrer – No. 6, Gold Group

Fernando Gonzalez - Tennis Masters Cup 2007

Fernando Gonzalez – No. 7, Red Group

Richard Gasquet - Tennis Masters Series 2007

Richard Gasquet – No. 8, Gold Group

Brackets: The hard-hitting Gonzalez should join Federer as the two semifinalists to come out of the Red Group by week’s end, and Federer will take the Cup. The Gold Group should have Ferrer and a rested Djokovic vying for the final spot, with Nole making an appearance in the finals.

    Thank god all these long-haired spanish don’t look half bad when their hair isn’t dripping with sweat and awkwardly tucked behind bandanas. Unfortunately we mostly see them sweaty and in bandanas, so I still think most of them should think about cutting their hair.

    Seems to me that Ferrer is also wearing a tuxedo jacket which, I agree, is not a great look.

    I THINK THEY ALL LOOK GREAT HERE BUT AFTER THEY HAVE PLAYED AND THEY ARE AS ATHLETES ARE, SWEATY AND NATURAL, HOW COULD ANYONE NOT LOVE IT.

    fERRER’S JACKET MEANS HE IS A MAN WHO IS COMFORTABLE WITH HIS PERSONAL CHOICES AND I SAY, EXCELLENT.
