    For me?:confused: :p

    Seriously though, this could be titled "Look for the two Forza signs in this picture".

    Wonder when we are going to see some of the guys do the same?

    In one of my gyms, it was so hot, we would sometimes take off the T-shirt (still keep the shorts on). We got shouted at for being indecent!!

    Running shorts don't seem to be popular here for playing badminton, though it seems quite acceptable for runners..:confused:

    One of the reasons why I enjoy badminton is because the clothing is decent. Imagine if we have to wear clothes like some tennis players... no thank you!

    me too! Now, who wouldn't watch tennis after seeing Anna Kournikova dressed like this?! I don't even like the game, but I'd go along if I knew she was playing.
    I think the caption read: 'Hot!' I hope this isn't verging on the obscene :eek: .

    Isn't it strange how there are some very attractive female pro tennis-players (even though they are hardly world class) and virtually no attractive female badminton players? I've also noticed this at the badminton clubs I play at; but perhaps that's a good thing, as I wouldn't be able to concentrate if there were.

    Try Carola Bott of Germany, but you'd have to up sticks and move to be in the same club.

    Maybe asians are too conservative in using tennis type of attire in badminton. :)

    The current Yonex skirt thingy looks pretty good, esp on Zhou Mi. That I think is good enough as I don't think they need to bare more skin on the court. It's not outdoors where one needs some extra 'exposure' to help dry the sweat. :)

    But if Camilla does wear that for her matches, I'm sure many won't be protesting, no? :D

    i too think the new clothings Yonex has came up with are very nice. modern and yet attractive. also nice to see ladies players are starting to wear skirts too, i think they do look rather nice on them. badminton has been rather "boring" in terms of appearance, so this is definitely a good move. scanning through some old tapes, now badminton players looks much more professional than say 10 yrs ago where they are only allowed to wear white+white.. yucks.

    I agree Kwun.. Last time the attire is very boring. Nowadays the new clothing is really a so called "turn on" to all the fans. At least something different. Simple and yet look attractive.
