Roger Federer Australian Open outfit

Uniqlo unveiled the outfit Roger Federer will be wearing at the upcoming Australian Open. The former world number one will wear a blue shirt and blue shorts in the night session, all white during the day.
There was a polemic last year regarding Federer‘s supposed “protected status”, as he played most of his matches at night, in much better playing conditions. It will be interesting to see if he’s protected again this year.

Federer leaves Nike for Uniqlo

There had been speculations for a few weeks, and we had the confirmation today: after 24 years with Nike, Roger Federer signed a clothing-contract with Japanese brand Uniqlo.

“I am deeply committed to tennis and to winning championships,” Federer said via the press release. “But like Uniqlo, I also have great love for life, culture, and humanity. We share a strong passion to have a positive impact on the world around us and look forward to combining our creative endeavors.”

He may love humanity but I’m sure he really likes the money too: it’s rumored that the deal is worth $300 million and will run for over 10 years.

I read a comment on instagram stating: Federer wearing Uniqlo is like Cristiano Ronaldo wearing Li-Ning.

What do you think of Federer’s signing? As a Federer fan would you buy Uniqlo’s matchwear?

Novak Djokovic switched from Uniqlo to Lacoste last year and here’s the outfit he’s wearing on the parisian clay courts:
