Richard Gasquet, Roland Garros 2019

Playing just his fourth tournament since undergoing groin surgery, Richard Gasquet defeated Mischa Zverev in straight sets to advance to the second round. His next opponent is Argentinian player Juan Ignacio Londero.

” I have only been replaying in tournaments for three weeks. I’m very happy. Although I’m not at my best level I’m happy to have won this match and I want to enjoy it.”

On the court Richard is sporting Le Coq Sportif from head to toe: he used to wear asics shoes as the French brand only produces streetwear shoes but they made a pair specially for him; they are indeed working on a collection for the general public that will be inspired by this model.

As always a clean and elegant outfit by Le Coq Sportif:

Visual details from each of the shoes Rafa Nadal wore in his past triumphs are incorporated into the volt glow/white colorway. A zipper shroud, nodding back to the Nike Air Zoom Flight, prevents clay from lodging into the shoe and the laces.

Quite underwhelming, isn’t it?

“I had frequent consultations with the development team, and I’m extremely pleased with the game wear they’ve created. It is exceptionally high quality, not only in terms of the silhouette and coloring, but it also has the functionality I need during play. This will be my first appearance at Roland Garros since 2015, and I’m looking forward to playing in UNIQLO game wear.

I guess that me too, I’d wear and say anything if I had a $300 million deal…
What do you think of Federer’s outfit? What do you think of his chances at Roland Garros?

Uniqlo Roland Garros collection will be available from Monday, May 20 at select UNIQLO stores and via UNIQLO.com.
