We are just a couple of days into the 134th year of the US Open—and regardless of my own personal lack of an affinity for sports, there’s something about tennis that has always struck me as incredibly classic and refined.

When you’re running back and forth nonstop, of course, clothing and comfort definitely take priority—there’s no reason to impede your game in the name of fashion, after all. But in spite of this—and perhaps not surprisingly, given the recent uptick in trendy workout gear—tennis players tend to have pretty great style, and that’s something worth celebrating.
