Prints are in for men when it comes to shorts this season. Notable pros to step out in printed shorts at the start of this season include Roger Federer and Juan Martin Del Potro. Here are my top five printed men’s tennis shorts.
Plaid shorts have been around the courts for ages. Everyone has done them, Nike, adidas, Fila, the list goes on. But no one has done it better than newcomer to the tennis scene Travis Mathew. Looking at the Curtis Short from a distance, you’d think this is a casual cotton short. Up close, you realize that this is a performance stretch woven short.
I don’t know about you, but to me, 2013 seemed like it was only about 3 months long. One minute everyone was doing the Harlem Shake and the next, they moved on to something called twerking. It felt like just yesterday that I was writing my 2012 year in review. Weren’t we just talking about Rafael Nadal’s comeback? But here we are, at the end of the 2013, less than 1 month away from the 2014 Australian Open. And Rafa’s knee, much like Miley Cyrus, appears to be alive and well.
These past 12 months can be summed up in 2 words: Rafa, Serena. Both had spectacular seasons and both went into 2013 with question marks. Rafa with his knee and Serena with her age (which, at 32, is considered “over the hill” in tennis years). And yes, let’s not forget that this was the year Andy Murray got the monkey, well, more like Godzilla, off his back by winning Wimbledon.
