FASHION FIX: Berdych gives Isner the beatdown, hits high style note in Nike

Tomas Berdych equaled his best performance at Roland Garros when he absolutely dominated the towering John Isner 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 to reach the fourth round. He crushed 43 winners against only 10 errors, threw down 9 aces, made 12 of 13 net approaches and won 28 of 30 points when landing his first serve. Gawdy stuff if you ask me.

Pretty Boy Berd is also working what I think is the best boy's outfit of the tourney. Here's a rundown of his latest Nike kit:

Men's Classic Back Spin Net Polo in white + flat pewter ($60)

Men's Summer Back Spin Woven Short in dark obsidian navy + white ($50)

Zoom Breathe 2K10 in black + yellow ($100)

Home and Away Reversible Doublewide Wristbands in yellow + midnight navy ($8)

At quick glance this outfit comes across as pretty straightforward. But I think the pairing of the side stripe on the shorts with the window pane design on the polo is a more successful and smart use of pattern mixing than what Nike tried with Rafael Nadal this season. Plus the pops of yellow on the Zooms and wristbands gets me all giddy inside. Classic with a tennis twist.

Oh Berdy, you're just so easy on the eyes - in all ways.

  1. This kit is spot on- clean lines, great fit, not too conservative, yet not garish in anyway. Classic, modern and youthful feel... nike have got this one right!
