    I've seen this on both Federer on Nadal - The Nike logo on their bandanas, which are usually centered on their forehead, seem to be shifted to the very side of their head. Does anybody out there have an idea why this might be?

    There's something with the Olympics and not wanting to be a huge billboard. If you look at Fed, Serena, and Hewitt's bags the logos are really small. I'm surprised that they even have their rackets stenciled.

    It's likely just a new style.

    The bandanas are on sale. In the picture, on the left part of Roger Federer's bandana, is a red nike logo.

    Pull one end of the bandana so it's longer than the other side at the back and the swoosh will be in that position :roll:

    Yeah, the K-Factor bags have nothing on them besides a sole 'W'. Also Federer is not wearing Flywires

    In the bottom picture, the nike swoosh on the wristband is behind his arm.

    Fed's vapors look as though they have gold swooshes instead of black like the retail version.

    if it is a new style (which it probably is), i'd say from a marketing and design standpoint it gives the nike logo a more dynamic and angular aesthetic on the bandana

    The reason is: The sponsorship for the Beijing Olympics is exclusive, and Adidas is the sponsor for sports wears. As well as in drinks: you can only get Coke series.

    The only one who "broke" it, is Li Ning, He himself is the LOGO for the brand "LINING", even he wear a Adidas shirt, LOL.

    For any other reason besides Olympic rules why would they put the logo on the sides where it is barely visible? Doesn't make sense.
