Seeing pink

It’s the US Open Men’s Championship.   Djokovic is playing Federer.  All is right with the world.

rogerfederHave you spied Roger’s gear for this year’s tourney?  His tennis whites are outlined in bright poppy pink.

Even his tennis shoes are dyed this neon bright color.

The hot pink is an unusual choice, and I’m wondering if it was psychological. Did Roger’s team hope that the color would have its rumored effect of sapping his opponent’s strength?

Stan Wawrinka wore a similar hue in his triumphant run earlier this year at the French Open — in plaid shorts, no less.

Hmmm….
