Remarks on the first round of play in Australia.
I’m feeling confident that Roger Federer will win the Australian Open, but who will he beat in the final?
A quick preview of the Australian Open men’s draw.
Fernando Verdasco will take a page from Nadal’s technicolor style book at this year’s Australian Open adding a blast of oh-so-trendy pink to his on-courtdrobe.* Verdasco’s look is from adidas’ adizero collection which blends the performance and comfort adidas fans crave.
The adizero line is made of super lightweight fabric designed to keep you from overheating (a must in the scorching Australian heat). A smooth waistband on the shorts provides better fit and feel. I never thought about it myself but a flat band would of course be more comfortable than a cinched drawstring — unless of course you are working a bit of a joe.
Verdasco, will play in this fresh pink crew with a white based version as an alternative. The design is a sublimated off center brushstroke style x accented with intense green, yellow and black. I’m thinking the pink is going to be a young-guns look only; fits with Nando’s fresh mohawk (not pictured) for sure. The polo style in the group offered in green, black and white is a good alternative for terminally pinkophobic men. Jo Wilfried Tsonga will wear the green polo version (not saying he doesn’t like pink).
Verdasco’s tennis shoes are the feather pink and black adizero Feather, lightweight, all-court in an athletic frame that offers good stability as well as heel cushioning. “I need a shoe that can get me through matches that can sometimes last up to four hours,” said Verdasco. “The longer I’m on court the lighter I need my shoe to be so I don’t get tired out…[T]he adizero Feather is the perfect solution.”
