    NYT: TENNIS HAS an emotional impact that isn’t confined to the court. Consider the ball boy, who speeds the game along by retrieving stray balls for the players.

    Come Monday, ball boys at the Open will be trying out, in full view of fans around the globe, the sexy nylon T-shirt that marks Ralph Lauren’s entry into the rapidly advancing world of wearable technology.

    What spectators will see this week is a slick, form-fitting black athletic shirt, the Ralph Lauren polo pony emblazoned on the front. What they won’t see is the conductive silver-coated thread that is woven discreetly into the fiber, monitoring your heart rate, breathing and stress levels, collecting data that is displayed on a dashboard, phone app or computer screen — all that without compromising its racy good looks.

    all's well and good, though i wish they'd dump the mutated polo logo by now. I want it back where it was (and still is on some of his stuff). More "This is what I'm wearing." and less "LOOK AT WHAT I'M WEARING!!"

    Let's hope all the ball boys are in shape, though.... Any extra weight around the middle is gonna show, big time!
