Tomas Berdych Wears Soccer Jersey at Aussie Open

Tomas Berdych is taking the court again today to play his second round match at the Australian Open. Also taking the court is his new get-up from H&M.  Berdych signed with H&M in January 2013. The first outfits were boring and plain.

Then they got a little more creative and added some graphics to the shorts.

But now they’ve come out with something that can only be described as a “creation.” (Let’s not forget here, that Frankenstein was also a creation)

Where to begin? The fact that the shorts don’t go with the top? Or the fact that the top is just bad? ESPN analyst Darren Cahill said it looked like he was playing soccer for the Argentine national team. True. But a better comparison is German soccer team Hertha Berlin.

Take away the Nike check, DB, and Hertha Berlin logo and you have Berdych’s shirt.

I was seriously disappointed when Berdych stopped wearing Nike because they have an affinity for light blue and he always seemed to wear those items. And that color always brought out his eyes–the most beautiful eyes on the tour, possibly the planet. So I got my wish for him to wear blue. I guess it’s true what they say; be careful what you wish for. Sometimes it doesn’t always work out.

Seriously, look at those eyes
