    Wait til you see the Sgt. Peppers gear that Rog is sporting. The vest is little better. Bad outfit, til you get to what he plays with.

    i have been to both wimby and to niketown and have chatted to my Nike guy - so the update is as follws:

    no special items or pop up store this year due to economy (very expensive to take over a store and make it Nike for just 2 weeks). only things that are available that are NOT at Niketown are the white caps with gold RF that *** have at Southfields shop...

    at Niketown they have the clothing that Roger is wearing and rafa was due to:
    Roger -
    white shirt with gold collar - pretty slim fitting, got a kind of a stripe in the fabric. collar is a bit funny and doesnt look that great in the flesh to be frank
    shorts - very cool, WITH gold stripe down the sides. nice lightwesigh material and decent baggy fit
    wristbands - do NOT have RF on under side, just a gold swoosh

    rafa -
    shirt - NOT soft cotton material but more like rogers, so more like what rafa actuially wears and NO chest pocket thank god! funny collar though - really floppy material which looks bad when on the body but OK on the hanger! fits better than previous collection too (no longer such a tight fit as AO stuff)
    shorts - seriously long cut, very baggy on the legs and no longer huge in the waist (i am and have always been a L and these new versions fit perfectly whyere as with the previous collection i had to go down to a M and they were still a tad big!)

    i have been told by a fellow poster and now by my nike mate that they will release the RF track jacket in January next year - not identical to the one he is currently sporting which is suoper cool but something similar....

    Addidas owns Nike. Just look at Djokovic and then look at Federer... enough said.

    adidas???? They have basically used the same shirt for the last 3 years!! They have done nothing differently! Novak's outfit could not have been any more boring!

    At least it wasn't a space suit with cargo pockets.

    ^ That is very true. Especially that awful vest. The thing is that his playing outfit and RF white/Gold jacket were good enough but Nike did go over the top with that outfit!

    Safina was looking the best i have ever seen her
    I think everyone's looking good wearing Addidas
    Safina and Ivanovic especially.

    There are no mainline brands sold in the shops at the All England Club other than those which provide apparel for the Championships (Ralph Lauren, Fila grass court shoes).

    Best bet if you want Rog's Nike gear is to exit via gate 1,2,3,4 or 5 and walk up Church road towards Southfields station where you'll find a *** store which specialises in the players gear from the championships - they had all Rog's wimbledon and FO clothing when I was in there on Monday.

    I went to Niketown in London and it is loaded with the nadal stuff and but is lacking on the federer stuff. Fed's outfit is all over on manekins but I tried hard to no avail to actually find it on a rack. Nadal's polo and shorts seem thin and comfortable and I don't think it's as long as his other models but I don't really know... I just looked at it briefly. They did have a federer table with the white and gold RF shirt, some hats, a model of his awesome shoe, and his bandana which I bought, there was a Nadal bandana there too with a green swoosh.

    There were loads of Eugene track jackets there too. Nadal had a white jacket with blue strip wit. His wimbledon gear so that must have been what he was going to wear. Upstair on sale there had tons of versions like the ones fron Nike. com and the cotton candy version from French open.

    No new shoes were there yet for sale as I could see but I was in a hurry so I didn't look that hard. Good luck. Tomorrow is July 1st!!
