Sasha Vujacic is Slovenian basketball player, currently with the New Jersey Nets, but is (unfortunately) probably better known as Maria Sharapova‘s fiancé. On July 2, Sharapova lost the final match of this year’s Wimbledon tennis tournament. During the match American TV channel NBC constantly showed Sasha cheering for her as often as possible. His behavior suddenly produced large amount of negative tweets and ‘Sasha Vujacic’ became a trending topic on Twitter.

While watching the match I noticed Sasha’s grey T shirt. On a first glance it looked like an ordinary T shirt. Here’s a photo from the final match, from Saturday, July 2.

But when browsing through photos from the tournament I found an interesting photo from June, 21. On that day Sharapova defeated Anna Chakvetadze of Russia and Sasha was in the audience. If you look at the photo below you can recognize the same T shirt he was wearing 11 days later :)

I’m curious if that’s some special T shirt for some special occasion or maybe by some special brand. From the photos above we can’t recognize the brand. Sharapova wears Nike uniform, so could it be Nike’s T shirt?

Or it could be by Peak Sport Products Co., Chinese sportswear/sports equipment that provides sneakers for Sasha and several other NBA players, e.g. Jason Kidd (Dallas Mavericks), Shane Battier (Memphis Grizzlies), Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves), Beno Udrih (Sacramento Kings) …

On the photo below you might recognize Sasha’s shoes that he was wearing on January, 22 in a match vs. Dallas Mavericks. Also some trivia: if you look closely at the right side of the photo you’ll recognize Kim Kardashian, who’s checking out Sasha.

At that game we’ve witnessed some of Sasha’s behavior that made him somewhat unpopular in the US. During one of the timeout he wasn’t listening to head coach Avery Johnson’s advice, but was sitting alone on the bench, acting like a drama queen.

If someone knows anything about Sasha’s T shirt, please let us know ;)

  1. Ahahaha, it’s true, he really was acting like a drama queen at that match in New Jersey!

  2. We can speculate, if he washed the shirt before wearing it twice…but one thing is for certain…he sure didn’t wash his hair for 11 days;)
