Oh Bobby Sod, you do know how to pull a “yoke”.

UPDATE: Oh, Rafa won’t like this, but fans will.

As for the Fed’s FO garb, I’m couci-couça on the yet-another-blue and the French-inspired stripe accents on the sleeves, but I’m surely digging the slightly funky shoes if only because the fading teal is a lot more dramatic than the boring old color blocks that we saw on the previous grand slams.

This year’s ensemble is a huge improvement from last year’s, but I hope the performance brings the same results as 2009’s. However, given TMF’s early exists from the tournaments that followed the Australian Open, I’m setting my expectations a little low for Roland Garros.
