Left is the Nike Men's Spring 2 Premier RF Polo in deep royal blue with accents of total orange and white, $90. Sooooo handsome. It also comes in total orange with white, a bit of a tough color for paler complexions. If Rog wears it, it will be the first tournament bright for him in years. His shorts are Spring 2 Twill 10" in white for $65, and shoes, Zoom Vapor 9 Tour in white/team orange and platinum, $130. Other cool items in the collection: This 100% cotton tee, $40, or RF hat at $26. Find it at Nike.com, Tennis-Warehouse and Nike tennis retailers worldwide.
