This article reports on the trends in tennis wear. The influence of what professional players are wearing is increasing, especially with the styles that were seen on the tennis courts in the summer of 2006. Color is becoming one of the most popular ways of moving away from the conservative style of tennis. The new garments are still created to allow the athlete to perform on the court, but they also are created with new technologies.
