    Will they? Now Federer is no longer the defending champion, I'm not so sure.. I'd also like to hear suggestions for what he might wear

    They might do something - maybe a small logo - for his career slam, but I don't think they'll go over the top again.

    Maybe they will make him a white and gold version of the jacket he's been wearing recently(the RF one). Probably a new nike bag for his clothes aswell.

    I really wish he'd get some bigger shirts.

    I concur with the gold version of the jacket he's been wearing.

    A full three piece suit probably with a flat/top hat for those sunny days.

    I really enjoyed seeing Fed in a cardigan last year.
    Gave me a good chuckle. :)

    Hopefully Rafa's is somewhat cool. Could not have been ANY plainer last year.

    I hope federer doesnt wear any cardigan or blazer. It would just look bad.

    as long as Nadal doesn't wear pink again, he'll get past the quarters :)

    Federer will be coming onto the court in a white silk boxer's cape with the number 14 on it in big gold letters surrounded by patches of the slam trophies in the order he won them. The words 'How do you like me now?' will be embroidered on the front of the cape. The theme from Rocky will play from tiny speakers sewn into the hem of the cape.

    Federer will blush and claim that it was all Nike's idea and he was forced to wear it by the terms of his contract, but he's been dreaming this up for years.

    The 2006 shirt with little golden stripes are best.

    Now that he's not defending champion, it would be inappropriate for him to dress for the occasion. He's no longer king of center court.

    if they did a new version of last year's cardigan that went to retail on a slightly less "let's sell our house and car to buy this" price tag, I would be happy.



    odds are that they wont, though. And just because he didn't win last year doesn't mean that he's not the head of the show, anymore. same thing will happen at the fo next year so I think if they do something special for one of them it will definitely be fed.

    I liked the Cardigan. A nice throwback.

    Players used to play in long pants, and I think it would be fine if they went back to that.

    Being Wimbledon, you won't have to worry about pink.

    I wish Federer would go back to the cool round necked t-shirts from 2006 and 2005, instead of the polos.

    Since he no longer is the defending champion, they should dress him accordingly. Something that makes him look like the challenger would be nice. :)

    That is one alpha shirt. I would root for ANY player who wore that shirt.

    So no one knows what fed is going to wear at wimbledon this year yet? I find that weird since i knew what nadal was going to wear at RG09 last year.

    This is great lol. Except "How do you like me now?" should simply be replaced by "What!!!!!" That would be perfect. Maybe a Lucha mask with a big 14 on the forehead would be good too.

    I'd like to see the white blazer again, but this time have the logo from each slam, now that he's won each of them.

    I hope they will release a Vapor VI with gold trim and 5 champ logos, RF logo in gold as well.
