US Open 2014: Best Dressed Men - Fashion Aces

We can't forget to take a look at the gentlemen's stand-out fashions at the 2014 US Open.

1. Grigor Dimitrov




GlamSpinTennis was eagerly anticipating the return of Rafael Nadal's sleeveless kit, but was horribly disappointed when Rafa withdrew from the tournament.  In Nadal's absence, Grigor's blue-on-blue kit was the king of Queens (....Queens, NY) for Nike men. 

2. Gael Monfils

2014 provided Asics with redemption after the 2013 Roland Garros fiasco. Gael Monfils looked young andfun in his matching lime green outfit. LaMonf looked good during his strong run through the tournament (notwithstanding his shocking exit after holding match points versus Roger Federer) and we hope that the Asics team and Gael can find the way to win a major title in 2015.  

3. Kei Nishikori



Kei made it all to way to the finals at the 2014 US Open, losing in straight sets to Marin Cilic. His red-white-and black Uniqlo kit stood out for its stylish fit and subtle use of stripes and piping. 

4. Tomas Berdych



H&M brought its A-game to NYC and outfitted Tomas Berdych in well-fitting duds that oozed sartorial flair. A mayor improvement for the Swedish design shop at the final major of the year.  Here's a closer look at some of H&M's previous tennis designs.     

5. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga


Two thumbs up (or rather, sideways?) for Tsonga's bold, statement-making, red-and-black outfit.

US Open 2018: Welcome Back & New Logo

Well...it's been 2 years hasn't it. That's what heading to grad school will do to a person. Sometimes the axiom, 'the more things change, the more they stay the same,' rings true. But sometimes, as with the case of the US Open's new logo, one steps away, and comes to find that things have gone completely awry.



Is this Arial font? Are these letters lower case? Really, in this political climate, lower case US? Is lower case an affront to becoming great again?

Also, is this logo actually in Arial Italics?

According to the USTA, "the logo created by renowned graphic design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, is a streamlined and modernized version of the tournament’s iconic flaming ball logo, which was first introduced in 1997."

The old logo had a solid 20-year run. This logo probably won't make it this long because it lacks pizzazz and lacks the distinction the previous logo offered. 



And here's a look at an earlier version of the US Ope…

US Open 2018: Rafael Nadal in Practice to Defend Open Chamionship Title

Rafael Nadal took an hour to work on his forehands in the new Louis Armstrong stadium at the US Open, today. 



Accompanied by his champion coach, Carlos Moya, Rafa spent the session working on down-the-line forehands and serves. 



Rafa appeared to be at ease during the practice session but tensed up during as he practiced serving.  Overall, this was one of the more aggressive practice sessions this blogger has seen and one the first times seeing a male tennis pro with male hitting partners and not other pros. I suppose this is one of the benefits of having a Grand Slam winning coach.
