Wasn't surprised to see smug face with his pink laces though eughh Frown
It was the 'sweetie' shade of pink that was so bad.  I think he looks fine in his light pink shirts.  Some men think pink is a bit poofy but I've a male friend who is anything but that, and it really suits him too.

My 'ex' was the same.  He always insisted on wearing white pants and one time I did a wash with something red - and his pants came out a delicate shade of pale pink.  He wasn't impressed but carried on wearing them anyway because he was too mean to buy himself new ones. Very Happy

What baffles me is the number of teenage girls and young adults who wear a lot of black - and that at an age when they should be wearing bright, cheerful colours.  It really doesn't do anything for them - at least I don't think so, but maybe you guys find it sexy.

I did laugh it off, but he didn't.  I used to get comments like "I hope I'm not involved in an accident" ... as if anyone would care then what colour his underwear was! lol

Thought provoking article on the effects of Nadal's absence and the shape of a new Murray-Nadal-Djokovic dynamic if Rafa's come-back works.

I didn't really take much notice of what he was wearing,to be honest-but I did not like the pink on the shoes.And I hated the yellow shorts.Didn't really like the white version of the top either,come to think of it!But it was the shorts that I really objected to.Just a big no,in my opinion.

I second that.

At least the orange on Rafa's shirt is only a small band at the neck, but his shoes are orange too and the shorts, etc, are dark grey.  Sorry I can't get the link to open on here, but ... yuk

What a critical article. Basically sweepingly states that the only reason Murray achieved his success last year was because Nadal wasn't around. Gives no credit to Murray whatsoever.

If we actually recount the facts, Nadal was the first of the other big three that Murray beat in a Slam (twice), and Murray wiped the floor with him in their last encounter (Tokyo 2011). Murray's game has only improved since then, quite dramatically, and comments like, "Could Murray have claimed that much hardware with a healthy Nadal playing in those tournaments?  It's impossible to say, but history suggests no.", and "Murray has reached the finals of each Slam since Nadal went out.  Coincidence?  Highly doubtful" are incredibly ignorant and totally disrespectful. Before the USO Murray had never beaten either Djokovic or Federer in a Slam - which he has now done in successive slams. Absolutely nothing to say he wouldn't have ended his recent run against Rafa as well.
 
Of course let's ignore than Nadal also 'owns' Federer too, and 'owned' Djokovic until his noticeable improvements in 2011 and just attribute Murray's improvements completely to Nadal being injured.

How would you like to face this across the net? - And that's only him training!  I don't know when the pic was taken though.






That is scary! Also, why do I look at that pic and start thinking of the Klingons from Star Trek? Nothing personal, but it came immediately to mind.

This is probably in the realms of too much information, but when we were kids our Mum used to insist that our underwear was the same colour (i.e. the girls wearing a black bra and white knickers was a no-no) in case we went out and got hit by a bus. It was always a mystery to me as to who the hell would care what colour knickers I was wearing if I'd just got hit by a bus, but there we are lol.
