Short Changed

July 5, 2012 at 7:16 pm 1 comment

Will heads roll at Adidas? Or should I ask “will balls roll”? We know the answer is yes to the latter. During Andy Murray’s third round match against Marcos Bagdhatis, he lost two points due to a ball dropping out of his shorts during play. From an article by Chris Chase of Busted Racquet; “According to Murray’s outfitter, Adidas, [We work] closely with Andy on the design of all his kit and we believe the issues were the result of an individual technical error in the handmade pockets of those shorts…” I appreciated the reference to the ‘handmade’ pockets as Mr. Chase did, not to mention the well played drop shot of throwing the poor seamster/seamstress under the bus!

I would like to hear Adidas’ response to the fact that it happened AGAIN during Murray’s match against David Ferrer. The importance of that match seems to have superseded the fact that Andy’s shorts came up er, well, short again.

Murray switched to the Adidas Barricade Bermuda shorts and is still on track for Friday’s semifinal matchup with No. 5 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Hopefully, the shorts change will ‘ahem’ clean up the mess. I for one, will be watching Andy’s balls. I suggest Adidas do the same.
