    DISCLAIMER TO ALL PEOPLE WHO ARGUE FREQUENTLY IN THE PRO PLAYER DISCUSSIONS BOARD: Federer switching to crew shirts will not magically make him better again, make him play worse or make any other player (Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Nadal, Del Potro, Monfils, Nadal because I know he's gonna be in this thread somehow) better or worse. This is simply opinion.

    I do enjoy the look of Federer when he's not in a collar. He just seems a lot less stuffy and free-flowing when not wearing polos. Anyone agree with me?

    I think he and everyone looks better in crews than polo's. Polo's are for work or the Golf course on the tennis court.

    Drakulie those are nearly Identical to the ones being released for the WTF in London. Kindof how Nadal wore his US open ballistec colorway early for clay season those are supposed to be the vapors we get for the Masters Cup. Go check Babolast's pic on Tennis Connected and you will see. I was planning on getting Wimby Vapor VI until I found out that these are coming out!

    yeah, I saw those shoes posted by Babolast. However, they are not the same. The ones posted by Babolast are a grey color with black lines. These are solid white, with no lines. Looks like Nike changed things up. I hope they come out with these colors.

    He should stick with the polos and the crew socks. Much more classic look for a classic player like Federer.

    That V-neck shirt looks like an undershirt or a sleep shirt. Horrible!

    he should brighten up his outfits (hawaiian shirts?)- especially for Roland Garros. regardless, i hope he gets to the final and wins the last point to bury the who's the greatest hoopla definitively - that is - until the argument becomes Federererererrrr or Rafa :)

    The Polos do look classy but i do miss the crews-the Blue US Open one at the top is one of the best ever imo

    I have to agree with Breakpoint again on this one!!! I usually agree with him around 99.9% of all of his posts...

    My favorite is when he dressed all in black...so hot!!! I'm sure women were horny seeing him in the black suit at the US Open 07...

    I wasn't saying that he should switch to no shows, as you can see he's rocking the pulled-up crews in the last pic. But hey, Federer looks like classy and awesome in anything, and seeing him in constant polos is pretty boring.

    i haven't been in love with anything nike has put out in a long while, though fed's stuff looks way better than nadal's, in my opinion. but i will agree with this:

    I know. I thought I'd just pre-empt anyone suggesting that Federer should also switch to no-show socks. ;)

    I like the polo look better. Crews are ok on Fed. But v-necks look too girly for me

    I think it would be better if Fed wore polos only for the big tourno's.

    Agreed. Australia 2005 he was sportin'. The matching colors to the shoes (sweet shoes by the way) was right on the money.'

    I personally wear polos, but I find something unattractive about Nike's. Maybe it's the collar. I really like Fed's crew from FO 2005 also.

    Sorry, sleeveless fails epically. It just ain't for tennis. Good for the gym, good for basketball, good for gay bars, but bad for tennis.

    i think that nowadays.fed is too worried about looking classy.he freaking dresses as though hes going out to a fancy restaurant or something when he plays now.i mean a cardigan, come on fed.my grandad doesnt even know what that is.he should definetly go back to the sporty fed that we all know and love.

    I think Federer looks best in simple, one color, no design polo shirts that simply have the nike logo.

    But isn't the crew the basic shirt? A polo is not basic because you have the collar on it.

    Don't the basic shirts you wear for work also have a collar on it?
