    This has been bugging me ever since I've taken a closer look at Fed's French Open clothing, his polo has 4 buttons and that awesome RF logo while the retail version only has 3 buttons and just an empty stitched square under the bottom button.
    I assume that none of Nike's retail clothing is exactly the same as what their pros wear.

    its mainly just federer's stuff that is customized
    the other nike shirts, im pretty sure its the same
    fed's polos are always a little different and better than the retail ones

    That being said, i still think Nike's retail versions of Fed's and Nadal's gear are still the best in the market. Quality wise.

    also his swooshes are not stitched on but screen printed on both his shorts and polo unlike the retail versions.

    and his wrist bands are adifferent material from the retail "federer pro wristband" the material is closer to the "nadal pro wristband" and it also doesn't seem as long as the retail ones as well.

    His french open polo has a charcoal lining on the sleeve, kinda like a double layering.

    Also, his buttons are dark blue compared to light blue on the retail version.
