Tennis Identity

Skull and bones society.

Dredded German Dustin Brown is one of the latest tennis athletes to join the roster at Hydrogen, an Italian brand that’s quickly identifiable on the courts by its skull logo.


Brown, who had previously worn Topspin and Under Armour tweeted out a photo of his sleeveless kit at the Bergamo Challenger.

Other players on the Hydrogen team are Simone Bolleli (the first player they signed) and Filippo Volandri – both of whom were present at Italy’s winning Davis Cup tie against Argentina two weekends ago.

Also in Hydrogen is 21-year-old melting pot Taro Daniel. The Japanese player – born in New York, based in Valencia, who loves classic rock– just won his first tour-level match in Vina del Mar after advancing through qualifying. (More: ATP’s Daniel Profile)
