You can’t match Don Budge’s powerful backhand — merely one of the best single tennis shots of all time.

Classic Tennis Sweater (No. 2647), variation of the venerable English cricket sweater. Grey with navy stripes. The essential upper crust tool for staring down your opponent across the net. Pure, thick cotton in a simple all-over cable pattern. Ribbed neck, cuffs and hem. I can see Federer in this. Can’t you?
Quite smashing on or off the court.
