Roger Federer Wimbledon outit

7-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer will be wearing the Nike Premier RF Polo, Nike Premier RF Cover-Up, Nike Gladiator Premier 9-inch Shorts and the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour.

“The goal for my footwear and apparel is always lightness, comfort and style. What I’m wearing has to look good, be as breathable as possible and let me be faster to the ball. “You can see in what I’m wearing for London that we’ve honored the tradition and elegance of this tournament, but that there is still real innovation in the fabrics and tailoring of my apparel that reflects my personal style and gives me the best chance of winning.”

It was a busy Sunday yesterday at Roland Garros with eight fourth-round matches but also the end of two third-round matches that were suspended by night on Saturday: Verdasco-Gasquet and Murray-Kohlscheiber.

Gulbis described his victory as the biggest of his career whereas Federer said he was disappointed but had already switched to grass mentally. Do you think Federer can bounce back and win Wimbledon?

Novak Djokovic dismantled Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1 6-4 6-1 in one hour and 29 minutes and appears as the big favorite for the title.

What do Roger Federer and Lukas Lacko have in common? They have both bageled Rafael Nadal. A pretty rare feat as the Spaniard has only lost a set 6-0 12 times in his career.
But apart from that, not much. The Slovak, ranked 88 in the world, has a 6-8 record in 2014. His best result in 2014 came in Miami where he qualified for the main draw and won two more matches.
Federer has a much better year this year than last year: he won in Dubai and reached the final in Brisbane, Indian Wells and Monte Carlo.

Federer controlled his first round match from the start and breezed past Lukas Lacko in 1 hour and 20 minutes.

At the end of the match, Federer thanked his wife (Mirka was there with twins 1 and 2 but no Edberg) and talked a bit of his foundation. This year, Roland Garros supports the Roger Federer Foundation and gives a 25€ donation for each ace.
