I am a 4.2 player and have been playing tennis for over 30 years. I play 3-4 times a week. I have 3 pair of these shorts and have been using them for 4 years. My weight can vary through out the year that's why I have two sizes. The elastic around the back sustains it's strength after hundreds of washings. The microfiber fabric keeps the creases and does not bunch up in those unmentionable areas. They feel and look great. If you prefer shorts with a front zipper, I highly recommend these shorts!
