    The mint/silver combo is severely under used. Mint is such a classy color :) I would almost rather see fed or berdych in mint rather than Nadal.

    Yes I have been waiting a long, long time to see a mint tennis shirt. Hopefully Summer 13 will provide us with one.

    Do you think Roger will be back in white and gold since he is Wimby champion again?

    nike will be bold in 2013.

    i think reflective 3M should be a big part of the line! (summer '13

    Fed:
    clay- kelly green (oregon ducks) crew with 3M accents. vapor 9s would be kelly green/black with the heel part in 3M.

    FO: jade/silver( 3M) polo. V9s - 3M and jade in teal.

    Rafa (if he plays ;)

    clay: 3M shirt with blue accents. cBs would be blue. not sure what shade of blue.

    FO: bright mango shirt with 3M accents. CBs inspired by the blake griffin hyperdunk 2011 10.0 PE ( one of my fav. colorways ever)

    delpo:

    mango shirt with 3M digicamo pattern?

    Berdych: Boring

    It is Nike after all.

    It would be nice if Roger switches up colors for Wimby. I loved Rafa's 2011 wimby outfit. Something like blue and purple or red accents, not typical Wimbledon colors. I know Roger is always the traditionalist, but I think he needs to break free of that.

    He sneers to break free of blue and red. Hopefully he will for SU13.

    What if Nadal came back... with the capris and sleeveless shirt. Like only for the French Open, and unexpectedly. Would be so cool.

    That would be awesome.

    I hope Nike will make a retro Nadal line in the future.

    At first, Babolast, thank you for you providing the catalogue once it is out. :)

    I also find the idea of a Jade shirt very interesting, but I guess Fed will wear a polo to FO instead of a Crew. The idea of including silver in an outfit is also very good, if it is silver, I hope that there might be small silver stripes at the collar and at the sleeves.

    Other than that, I guess I am going to wait for the surprise.

    Black short would be nice... It's been a long time without any black one in RF collection. Always anthracite as the darkest color.

    Actually, Babolast, I can't manage to see in the winter 12 colletion if his short is black or once again anthracite for the Masters..?

    I just don't think it would be possible to put Federer in blue or red for another season. I hope he wears green. It shocks me he still has yet to wear any shade of green since his dominance began in 2003.

    Woud like to see some green on Fed as well, especially slightly dark green but not as dark as the sail green. For RG, blue and white maybe, haven't seen him in that color scheme during RG before.
    Nadal:, don't really care, purple and white maybe for the clay season maybe, and head to toe anthracite for RG.

    Fed was in blue and white for French Open 2004, 2006 and 2010. Rafa wont be in purple because he will be wearing purple at the Australian Open.

    I'd like to see the color, unfortunately I do not know the english term, which is on the borderline between green and blue, having the same effect like water in a lake which is enlightened by the sun.

    So, an outfit would be:

    Polo: this blue/green borderline color
    Shorts: dark shorts (anthrazite/black with a swoosh in the polo color)

    Matching wristbands and bandanas.

    Jacket: Some color as the shorts, and when taken off, it reveals the beauty of the polo. :D


    @ Babolast:

    Do you also have some pictures of/information on the Winter collection for 2012? I can't see on the pictures on the internet which colors the shorts have, if there's a jacket for the WTF in purple, the wristbands and bandanas etc. Would be very kind of you if you could provide those infos. :)

    I see that we asked the same the question. I can't see if the short is black or anthracite... I hope Babolast can help.

    Yeah, seems like we have the same interest. I am generally intrested in more details for the Holiday line, since the pictures of FedFan07 lack some details (color of shorts for pre-WTF and WTF, jacket for WTF, bandanas, wristbands). Hopefully, somebody can clear things up.

    We could maybe create an extra thread for that although my last one on the Holiday line was deleted somehow.

    love your predictions man! 2013 does seem like nike's year to start mixing nontraditional colors (orange + purple and pink+grey for aussie?? yikes!), it makes it more exciting and intruiging to wait for the line. Mint + silver sounds epic!

    I was kind of hoping the poster who is a play tester and told us about the orange Spring 4.3s would provide us with some info on the Summer 13 shoes.

    I would love to see an Oregon Ducks type colorway from Fed: chrome or grey with bright green and yellow accents. Maybe navy blue/neon green from Nadal...

    Rafa: red with yellow crew, royal blue with yellow shorts, black shoes, socks and wristband (soccer Spain inspired)

    So most people think Fed will be in green and Rafs will be in orange/navy.

    Even if there's an orange polo in the spring collection?
    Don't you think it would be too much?
