    it kinda looks like Kohlschreiber's shirt he wore when he beat Roddick.

    And with that, the first Federer-Kohlschreiber comparison in history has been made. :)

    Fed should talk less clothes and ads with us at his facebook and more about his tactics LoL. In fact, he should link to TW boards on his facebook.

    His tactics will be the same as ever,try to make an opponent choke against him.That tactic won him FO recently so why change something that works?

    I think the yellow is to blind his opponent or at least confuse him with the ball color...

    After seeing the mouth-watering red hot sexy pic of Federer, I can understand how the younger boys just "choked" on him :twisted:

    Edit: go back to your .... swiss chalet, Fedhater ;-)

    I preferred that to this new outfit. It looks a bit clinical like he's going to go into an operating theatre or something lol. *edit* just noticed the post above said a similar thing!

    I like it but I'd like to see how it looks on court.
    His best outfit was the 2007 one for me.
    That said,he looks gorgeous no matter what he wears..for me atleast,he does. :oops:

    Absolutely... this is actually where my awe at his play succumbs a bit to something different and irreverent... the Great Gasby?!... Cary Grant?!... he just looks 'camp' and ridiculous (and in a vaguely Swiss way too)!... though on the point of looking ridiculous I think Del Potro can give him a run for his money! :)

    "red hot sexy " Not a way I could ever describe Federer. On a scale of 0-10 for sexiness I would have score him a zero.

    You are kidding, right? Looks like he is wearing a straight jacket... Why are the Nike designers going to looney bins now to get inspiration for their designs? :shock:

    I totally missed the eggplant reference, lol. Keen eyes, Seffina!

    Who the hell would were that for going out? I mean if you wore that on the streets you'll probably get attacked.

    Wimbledon Saturday Practise: Federer in a Special Dress


    Given the title of this thread, I was disappointed (although ultimately thankful) not to see a picture of Roger in a dress. :)

    Regarding the above pic, Roger has always held a secret fantasy of being an owner/operator of a Good Humor truck. For him, tennis is merely a sideline until he can fulfill that lifelong dream.

    His outfit is consistent with Wimbledon's white attire only policy. It is different so it brings some visibility to his brand. The suit is a throwback to the time when player's routinely wore sports jackets when entering the court.

    Agreed, don't like the outfit. I liked the 2007 one but that's about it. Although I'm not sure who's pretentious and what that person is pretending I agree it's kinda cheesy.

    That is just a pink polo shirt that Nadal wore during a match whilst Federer's is a cheesy completley pointless jacket.

    Federer has always had that metrosexual instincts inside of him. The shirt he was wearing during the practice was just a basic shirt, nothing fancy. Roddick in the first pic had the polo shirt as usual, nothing out of the ordinary. I never was a big fan of colored shirts, something I would probably never wear while playing tennis.

    If you are going to pass judgements on metrosexual instincts based on people wearing a jacket to enter the court, then you should also look at someone wearing bright pink throughout the tournament...what kind of instincts do you think must be inside of Nadal?

    TTW may have just hit a new low. Fed and Nadal fans are seriously arguing over the clothing the guys they cheer for wear. The winner in this argument? No one.

    Do you know how many players wear some kind of jacket when they walk on the court and take it off before they start playing?

    You're obviously a man who understands sartorial elegance, so I'll trust you on this one :p

    ps. I hate it. He looks ridiculous. It's nearly as stupid as Feli's orange FO outfit.
