Federer and Stan both wore blue for their doubles match. I'm guessing the shirt Federer wore is the Spring Challenger UV Crew in blue. Not entirely sure since the pictures arent that close.

According to Neil Harman and Yves Allegro on twitter, Fed decided that his yellow shirt 'clashed' with Stan's blue too much and asked Nike to send him blue shirts before the next match. Nike overnighted 45 blue shirts.

When was the last time Federer wore a shirt without a collar? 2006?

Awww how cute! Fed is color matching w/Stan... That's what doubles teams are supposed to do - look like a team.

Nike overnighted 45 blue shirts. Y'all want to know why Nike gear costs so much - that's why. They spend a zillion dollars to overnight 45 shirts for a handful of doubles matches, and, in the end, you get to pay for that because they have to cover that expense (and a thousand more just like it for their other elite athletes) somehow. Absurd. I wonder what Izod would have said to Wawrinka if he'd wanted 45 yellow shirts so he could match Federer. "Well, Stan, there's an Lacoste store about four miles down the road from Indian Wells, right off 111 in Palm Desert..." ;)

Last year, Fed wore the orange Henley for Miami, and then the white one for the clay season.

In theory, yes, but let's be honest, the Fed and Nadal contracts are a drop in the bucket compared to what Nike spends on its highest profile basketball players (and football players and baseball players and soccer players).

Really? Doesnt Federer have an extremely lucrative deal with Nike? Something like 100 million ++ for 10 years.

Fed wore a Henley style in Europe last Spring, retailing at a reasonable $60 or so, compared to his overpriced polos at $80. His Spring '11 is all v-neck crews and photos were posted two weeks ago on Twitter @FedererNews. Wild stuff for him!

he wore that pole because the atp rules say the team has to match, so nike sent him 45 different shade of blue in different styles too. he picked the polo later in the tourney because they final reached him from nike.

The announcers said during the match against Nadal/Lopez, that Roger asked for permission to wear his yellow polo in doubles in the beginning of the tournament, until Nike sent him the blue shirts.

Yep, I was there Monday night and caught the last few mins of their doubles match, he was wearing his yellow polo.
