    Just about every tournament Fed enters he is wearing a shade of blue. Example: Aussie Open 08,10 , French Open 08,09,10, Cincinatti, Montreal, WTF, just about every tourney Fed plays Nike puts him in blue. How about purple, green, yellow?

    I thought it was because on blue hard courts its harder for the opponent to see where you are if they look fast..

    Haha, that made me laugh so much for some reason. Who knows? He looks good in blue so maybe Nike just wants some sales.

    I like the blue on Federer, along with red and black. Actually I don't understand why everyone wants him to wear green and purple, it'll look ridiculous just like the orange.

    Federer is part of Nike's "Classic" clothing line... so his stuff will be classic colors, nothing too trendy like a electrolime or neptune blue. Those colors are for Nadal, the "Trend" clothing line.

    Fed has also stated he likes the colors that don't show the sweat as much.

    Tiger Woods wears red on Sunday, and he and Fed are friends. Maybe Fed wants to do the same thing only in blue.

    I agree with OP but thankfully Fed will be in light pink and purple later this year.

    Maybe its a sign of things to come.

    Fed: "it's not a pocketbook!....it's a MAN PURSE!....just ask Mirka!..."

    ^^^^^^^^^
    True, true & true to all of the above posts (liked the 'Crip' joke too).

    Then again, remember all the finger-pointing and laughing during Fed's "gold phase" at Wimbledon?

    (the gold trimmed vest and jacket, gold 'swoosh' shoes .... not to mention that big ol' silly his-and-her matching white/w gold pocketbook). ;-)

    Yeah, a lot of people seem to like it. I simply hate orange, it's personal I suppose.

    Well, blue sells. It's as simple as that.

    The all black made him look meaner and leaner, more intimidating. Especially with his emotionless personality, the all black was way too BA :)

    Personally it looks kind of refreshing after years of him wearing a slim fit polo shirt.
