Tennis players are known more for their athleisure sense of style rather than formal suits. But Sumit Nagal is happy to be an exception to this rule. “When I wear a suit, it is a different outfit, so it makes me go ‘wow’. I like looking in the mirror [when I’m wearing a suit],” he said.

Speaking about the kinds of suits he wears, he said he likes dark colours. “I am more into designer suits, and checks and stripes. But not too bright. I don’t like flashy ones that can be seen from a distance. Mine are more subtle, those which have designs, but you need to come closer to notice them. I also have a lot of plain ones,” he said.

But suits have been a new love for Nagal. The first time he recalls feeling good in a suit was in 2016, during the Davis Cup in Delhi. “I had a decent suit. I felt I looked very good. That was a time when not many people would notice me. But I was really happy with the way I looked,” he added.

He defined the anti-hero look.”
