it kinda looks like Kohlschreiber's shirt he wore when he beat Roddick.

And with that, the first Federer-Kohlschreiber comparison in history has been made. :)

His tactics will be the same as ever,try to make an opponent choke against him.That tactic won him FO recently so why change something that works?

Absolutely... this is actually where my awe at his play succumbs a bit to something different and irreverent... the Great Gasby?!... Cary Grant?!... he just looks 'camp' and ridiculous (and in a vaguely Swiss way too)!... though on the point of looking ridiculous I think Del Potro can give him a run for his money! :)

Wimbledon Saturday Practise: Federer in a Special Dress


Given the title of this thread, I was disappointed (although ultimately thankful) not to see a picture of Roger in a dress. :)

Regarding the above pic, Roger has always held a secret fantasy of being an owner/operator of a Good Humor truck. For him, tennis is merely a sideline until he can fulfill that lifelong dream.

His outfit is consistent with Wimbledon's white attire only policy. It is different so it brings some visibility to his brand. The suit is a throwback to the time when player's routinely wore sports jackets when entering the court.

Federer has always had that metrosexual instincts inside of him. The shirt he was wearing during the practice was just a basic shirt, nothing fancy. Roddick in the first pic had the polo shirt as usual, nothing out of the ordinary. I never was a big fan of colored shirts, something I would probably never wear while playing tennis.

If you are going to pass judgements on metrosexual instincts based on people wearing a jacket to enter the court, then you should also look at someone wearing bright pink throughout the tournament...what kind of instincts do you think must be inside of Nadal?

I hate people trying to bring high fashion into professional sports. Federer has gone too far in the last two Wimbledons. He usually looks pretty cool, but at wimbledon he gets rid of any athletic look at all in his clothing. Same with the NBA players showing up in do rags and jerseys before their games of a few years ago.

That explains why he won't be #1 for much longer after Wimbledon, provided that Fed come through to win the tournament. Anything is possible, Fed can be upset, but Nadal won't have opportunities to be a clown #1 much longer.

I am just curious, when Nadal loses #1 ranking, does he go back to being a pirate, leave longer hair, facial hair and sleeveless shirt. But for his sake, don't wear pink sleeveless shirt, that would not make a good pirate and would send a wrong impression of a typical pirate. Unless, he really likes the pink color then who am I to stop him.
