Hydrogen Tennis at Roland Garros
Hydrogen. [hahy-druh-juh n] (noun) a colorless, odorless, flammable gas that combines chemically with oxygen to form water: the lightest of the known elements. Symbol: H; atomic weight: 1.00797; atomic number: 1; density: 0.0899 g/l at 0°C and 760 mm pressure.
OK, that’s the technical definition. That’s also the name of hands down the wildest gear in tennis. Hailing from Italy circa 2003, it’s the line with a big ol’ honkin’ skull on it. Their pro tour players include Simone Bolelli, Illya Marchenko, Filippo Volandri, Adrian Unger, Edoardo Eremin, Corinna Dentoni, and Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff (below.)
Household names? No, but Andre Agassi wasn’t a household name when he started wearing his unconventional attire back in the day, either. And you can bet had Hydrogen existed back then, AA would have been the perfect choice. To say this line is flashy is an understatement. Check them out at Tennis Warehouse!
