Reilly Opelka never fails to entertain his fans. The 25-year-old American tennis star recently withdrew from the season’s first Grand Slam event in Australia. While fans have been worried about his physical condition and whether the injury will make it impossible for him to participate in the upcoming tennis tournaments, Opelka decides to shock everyone. The American tennis star has now taken a break from the game and is pursuing his interests in fashion.

Reilly Opelka is at the Milan Fashion Week, featuring his eccentric style. While some fans have loved the looks, he is also facing brutal trolls online. Recently, a picture of him wearing knee-length boxers and a red-white flannel jacket surfaced online. Reddit has not missed an opportunity to take a dig at Opelka’s sense of fashion. However, the tennis player looks quite confident about his outfit and, for sure, he’s rocking it.

Reilly Opelka is tennis’ new fashion icon?

Opelka’s outfit features a red and white checkered jacket with a black coat, black shiny shorts and long boots. The zipper on the jacket is pulled down, revealing the mustard yellow t-shirt underneath. It gives the illusion of a neck-scarf or a tie with the yellow shade in stark contrast to the jacket.

Fans have rained their hilarious comments on the post and some wish that they could unsee the picture.

 

Another fan has attributed Opelka’s “ugly” fashion sense passing without objections owing to his height.

A fan has brought up the hilarious meme which surfaced a few weeks back on Reddit. Morgan Riddle, Taylor Fritz’s girlfriend, had Zverev’s face superimposed on hers. The meme quickly went viral.

Other fans have simply called the picture “atrocious”. Even users who aren’t fashionistas have commented on the post.

A fan has delved into the nitty-gritty of fashion and wondered why Opelka would style his outfit with heeled boots when he is already very tall.

Others have just assumed that Opelka’s outfit was not styled by Prada. Instead, it must have been he who styled himself.
