Tennis Fashion: Beneath our radiant Southern Cross

Roger’s AO jacket




Rafa’s AO jacket




For folks in the lesser half of the world known as the Northern Hemisphere, the stars symbolise the Southern Cross, the constellation on Australia’s flag, or what was formerly known as “Spencer Street train station”.

If you’re Australian and did not recognise the stars or the song that this post title came from, perhaps it is you, and not the immigrants seeking naturalisation, who should be sitting those goddamn citizenship tests.

My politics aside, this whole “Roger gets blue and Rafa gets orange/sorbet colors” thing is getting old. But nice touch with the stars.

    Is that not an RF jacket? Why is Nadal wearing an RF jacket?!

  2. Tashi says :

    I have a serious, deep rooted ,passionate hatred for blue.

  3. Noel says :

    Actually i like the blue one though Fed has already wore too much of it.

  4. SJ says :

    As long as Roger wins, I don’t care what he wears. He looks nice in blue though but he does wear it too much.

  5. breadstix says :

    Something other than blue would be nice. At least it’s a dark blue, but I still stand by my belief that they should put Roger in something bright for once. A colour that’s not red or blue or purple or black. :/
    The stars are a good idea though…

    Aussie open in blue is a strict no no,he should stick to variations of white.

  7. JFK says :

    Not bad I guess. I’m sure I’ll love it when I see Roger wearing it of course. Maybe he’s not getting sick of the blue and maybe it’s his favorite color.

    LMAO A+ reference to Spencer Street. I go pass Southern Cross station every day and I STILL call it Spencer Street.

    These are nice jackets though!
