Second Serve


An article that was published in the New York Times a little over a week ago posed the question about using tinted contact lenses for athletes -- in it, researchers had hypothesized that the reduction in glare and increase in contrast would help with performance. Unfortunately, neither has proven true, with the contacts actually not making a difference (or, in some cases, negatively affecting depth perception).

We wonder if any tennis players would've considered switching to tinted contacts for their play; of the folks currently using prescription shades, we know that Janko Tipsarevic probably wouldn't consider it; he's told us before that the reason he wears his Oakleys is because contacts bother his eyes.
