What do you wear when you play tennis?

Not sure which forum does this belong to? But I realize we talk a lot about what the player wears when they play, but what about us? What about the people who are the market of all these tennis ad campaign? I'm interested to see what everyone wear when they play? Do you wear just whatever t-shirts, or do you have your favorite shirt or shorts and for the ladies, do you have a lucky tank or lucky dress that makes you feel special when you're on the court?

If you don't mind, take a picture and post it up here and share. My favorite so far is an ombre zip up jacket I got from urbanoutfitter. I'm not quite traditional when it comes to attire, but this is quite sporty but stylish at the same time.

I wear Adidas stuff. Currently I'm sporting the same shirt Verdasco wore last US Open, but in a red, not the yellow orange he had.

Re: What do you wear when you play tennis?

I wear shorts.. as long as their mesh and comfortable but I usually go with Adidas.
For a shirt, my favorite is an Under Armour shirt I have from my school. I sweat a lot and get tired fast so anything that keeps me as cool as possible is good.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: What do you wear when you play tennis?

Dry-fit Shorts and then Depending on what kind of workout I'm looking for....Either a lightweight dry fit shirt of a heavy one....... Nike's the best. though they have a basic dry-fit shirt that pretty much feels like you arent wearing anything for 15 bucks.....

I like to play and play better in just normal t-shirts, but i sweat too much and I have no desire to be that tool changing shirts every 4 games...

one armband to wipe the sweat from my forehead before serve...

Re: What do you wear when you play tennis?

To be fair, Adidas outfits worn by Ivanovic are wearable and good looking without drawing sandal or attention. No decent and morally upright woman in their right mind would wear something like the ones Maria, Serena or her sister wear.

Re: What do you wear when you play tennis?

I usually wear old t-shirts and basketball shorts.

I tried getting into dry fit shirts that is made for tennis, but I find that when you start sweating the smell becomes pretty potent. Not sure why, but in any case I avoid wearing them.

Re: What do you wear when you play tennis?

NIKE from top to bottom, but I am a proud owner of Prince jogging bottoms that I wear if it is freezing cold with my big fat Nike comfy hoodie! (It has been stupidly cold in UK and our tennis hall does not have a heating) I actually considered wearing a glove on the hand not holding tennis racket, but that was playing havoc with my ball toss...

Nike Zoom trainers, same as Maria wears. They are fab lightweight and fit like a glove on my ridiculously narrow foot. They were hard to find and now I can not find another pair anywhere

I refuse to have a sig until Maria wins a slam

Whatever's comfortable. Usually just black work out clothes.

Re: What do you wear when you play tennis?

I come from a super conservative society and my dreams of being a professional tennis player are pretty much zilch or laughed at. I play against my wall at home alot and i taught myself to play tennis. I am expected to become a lawyer or doctor or something but being a professional athlete is unheard of.
