    I thought they used to have it as different shirts for day matches and different for night matches. But this tournament both Federer and Nadal have worn the same shirts for both day and night matches. I cant complain as I like Federer's blue marina shirt rather than the typical red one but still wondering as to whats the reason?

    Previously, they seem to have alternated with night/day outfits, but they usually seem to focus more on the alternate outfits in the US.
    It just seems to come down to Nike really, and if they want to push a particular set of clothing.

    Federer uses the Blue wristbands/bandana for the night sessions, while the White wristbands/bandana for the day sessions.

    They are selling the 2nd colorway for Federer - Orange shirt with grey design / grey shorts. It's pretty nice. May be Fed will wear it in the semi or final.

    I also noticed that, but on today's match which started in the afternoon/evening, Federer played with Blue wristband/bandana


    I think that he'll use those colors for Dubai and IW

    Maybe he doesn't want to look like Nadal's twin...

    The different colorways in the Nike catalogue were clearly marked as day and night clothes respectively.

    I am surprised that ppl even pay attention to what pros wear during the day vs night. I mean, you notice it, sure but who actually goes and actively thinks about it? Tennis is tennis whether you are wearing blue or white.

    I was wondering this as well.. I know Nike made that white version of the Rush & Crush crew for Nadal, and the red Court Polo for Federer. I don't mind or anything but I like the different colorways for day/night.

    Everyone's different. Why make a statement like that?

    Some of us tennis fanatics like outfits as well. Each to his own.
