I continue to be surprised at how few on-tour tennis athletes wear eye protection on-court in the blazing sun. Janko Tipsarevic is one who very smartly does. Pictured above at the US Open he wears prescription photochromic Oakley Fast Jackets. Switchlock technology allows you to quickly switch lenses with changing light; a great option for a long match outdoors. They start at $220 USD without prescription. 

The Serb is also wearing the new and classically styled Fila Heritage Crew and short in New York. Both are $45 USD. The polished looking set reflects past signature red white and blue Fila styles (how fitting at the USO) while meeting today's performance needs. The 100% poly fabrics are loose fitting, UV protective and wicking. Built in mesh panels insure breathability. If you're not a bright's guy, the shirt comes in a few other colors including white.  

Wishing Janko luck vs friend and fellow Serb Novak Djokovic in the next round. Whatever happens, Janko will do it in style, intelligent tattoos included.

Find it at Oakley, Fila, Tennis Warehouse and tennis retailers worldwide.
