Ok, so the photo might be a little blurry, but you get the picture. Take a look at the guy’s pants (the one on the right). When Rafa Nadal gets tired with wearing his yoga pants on the court, perhaps we can offer this as an alternative.

It looks so fabulous with those Chuck Taylor-esque shoes. I wonder what kind of ankle support you get with it (probably not a lot), so it makes things a little iffy. Especially with Nadal’s grinding style, he’ll need all the support he can get.

florida memory project: chris evert

As a countdown to the Sony Ericsson Open next week, I’m posting some pictures from the Florida Photographic Collection. Today’s photo is of Chris Evert.

Someone needs to bring that look back. I’m thinking this is something for Maria Sharapova or Daniela Hantuchova. Thoughts?

In honor of the upcoming Sony Ericsson Tournament in Miami (March 21-April 1), I’m unearthing some photos from the Florida Memory Project. Here’s one with a sexy Ilie Nastase.

I know tennis bags aren’t made like that any more (for orthopedic reasons, I’m sure), but someone — Tommy Robredo, are you reading this? — can raid a vintage store or two and put these back on the style map!
