    I'm afraid Nike don't have a shop at Wimbledon this year. I went there on Saturday and asked the guys from *** sports who ran it in conjunction with Nike last year and they confirmed that there would be no Nike specific tennis store at the Wimbers this year. The space where the shop was last year is now actually a pretty seedy looking video store!

    I went to niketown on Oxford street as well in case they had any "special" items in. Even though they had a massive tennis section taking up the bottom floor, nothing was particuarly special. That is, there were no playing shirts with the "RF" symbol on them, no special wristbands, and unfortunately no special jacket like the one in your photo. Shame, 'cos I want one too!

    I did read on here as well that Nike are only making those for Fed and won't be releasing to the public. I don't know how true that is though.

    Good luck with finding one, and if you do find one please let me know where. But unless Nike open a last minute store at Wimbledon at the end of this week, it won't be from there.

    Why would anyone want the jacket??? You are not Roger Federer. If you did manage to get hold of that jacket, your opponents are going to think your the s**t, only for you to shank balls left, right and centre.

    The caps are ok, but to be wearing the RF jacket is just going to make you look like a wannabe.

    So does that mean that buying a jersey of your favorite team makes you a wannabe because your not that player? no you buy it because you like that player or team and if someone wants the RF jacket it simply means they like Roger Federer

    I wouldn't mind having the jacket without Roger's logo on it. I like Roger, I just don't need to have his logo on everything I own.

    Too try hard in my opinion, if your not Fed then just don't bother, as simple as that.

    Well said! I'm tired of people criticising Roger fans who want to buy tennis gear with the RF on it. It simply shows you are a fan and you appreciate his greatness as a tennis player. I'm sure the vast majority of fans are not about to buy his RF stuff so they can parade themselves from bandana to shoes on the tennis courts; it is a collection or they wear it as a show of support for Roger. So what do you call the people who bought air jordans in the past? wannabes? They just liked Michael..period.

    Oh good, I thought you wanted that military jacket. Those are being placed in the warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    I definitely wouldn't be thinking they're the s**t. There is no way I could hold back from laughing my butt off if somebody appeared at the courts wearing that. It's hilarious!!!! LOL

    I had to sit through the period of metro wanna-bees wearing Nadal clam-diggers....smiled but held back laughter...but COME ON....this can't be the mindset now can it? Showing up wearing monogramed Federer jacket??! LOL. That would be the gayest thing in the world!

    You'd never see a high level player wearing something like that...well maybe an under 12 junior...

    Agreed, the way Fed wore it whilst holding up the trophy reminds me of Borg back in the day when his ultra-cool Fila jackets dominated at the presentation ceremony. The way the collar sits up, the slim fit and the subtle gold trim - this jacket is the best piece of apparel Fed's worn in his career.

    wonder why spring 2010. Nike could make a ton of money if they released this thing earlier.
