In a new study scientists have claimed that the outfit players wear during Tennis game, could determine if they'll win or lose.


Iain Greenlees, a UK-based sports psychologist at the University of Chichester, who's studied the effect clothing has on competition said that there was an advantage that could be gained, in terms of how the player was perceived by their opponent, by having different forms of clothing.

In the yearlong study, Greenlees had tennis players first watch videos of their potential rivals warming up, then size them up based on their demeanor and clothing. Those who sported tennis-branded gear and looked more confident were seen as more formidable opponents.

Greenlees suggested some looks that could help players net the prize. He said that clothing should be such that accentuates the player's physical prowess. Color like red could intimidate or make someone look more dominant than they truly were.

Julien Farel, official hairstylist for the US Open added that when it comes to hair and headgear, a perfect crown completes the look. He favored no-fuss braids to tame flyaways or a high ponytail that's practical and looks polished on television.

Meanwhile, Scott Kendall, footwear designer for New Balance, suggested that sneakers shouldn't be too cushioned, as players need to feel the court underneath them.
