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.

Roger Federer leves Nike for 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?
