    What is the best lens color for tennis?
    Im curious what lens tints the pros such as Tipsarevic and Stoesur use as they always wear oakleys for matches.
    I think its one of the rose based colors.
    I also assume they dont use polarized given the issues with depth.

    Really depends on the conditions and maybe surface color. G30 is a definite good pick because it works against blues and greens.

    But if it's too bright I could see the case for just something neutral and darker.

    I would say Fire iridium would be another really good choice.

    Perhaps prescription transitions, Rx for sure according to this.

    Outside? I'd go with VR over G-series. VR enhances yellows a lot better.

    Not sure what the pros use but I use flak jacket with photochromic clear to black iridium and it is perfect.

    I know the g series g30 is made for gulf to bring out the blues and greens. Aren't tennis courts green? Ball kinda of greenish/yellow?

    It depends on the court. Grass courts are green. I'd think you'd not want to accent the court for tennis the same way you'd need to for golf. Golf requires reading the course, tennis requires following and reacting to the ball.

    I'd still say the bright yellow would do better with a VR lens.
