Show your colors: “Tennis Tricolore” is alive and well in Tokyo this weekend, where Japan is hosting France in a World Group First-Round Tie. Japan’s roster: Yoshihito Nishioka, Taro Daniel, Yuichi Sugita, Yasutaka Uchiyama. France’s roster: Gilles Simon, Richard Gasquet, Pierre-Hugues Herbert, Nicolas Mahut.
As expected, the Frenchies remembered to pack stylish Davis Cup kits for their 6,000-mile journey to the Far East, with the doubles tandem of Herbert/Mahut displaying country pride with a tri-color croc on their Lacoste polos, while Le Coq Sportif – through that 1HBH on Gasquet – comes to the table with a tri-color logo and left sleeve.
And then there was Gilles in adidas.
