they should really put more thought into these quite hideous offerings.. this washed out pale blue 11 shirt might be the worst of the bunch
Sick and Tired of talking about lack of Nike Tennis designs. It’s just nothing new nowadays.
With those boring design, Nike can’t sell “20” fed shirts and probably this one too.

Nike needs fresh minded person in their Tennis department.

Prefer to see Fed and Nadal both gone and spend those money to invest another innovative products.
Probably it will cover entire Nike products.
If Nike stays same, adidas will eat the market share more and more.
If Adidas’s new marketing experiment is successful (basically copying nike’s Store haha), they can take 10-20% market shares within 2 years from Nike.

I wanted to buy it but not gonna do it. It's basic cotton and bad to play in it, so it's a no go for me
The people who have ordered the commemorative shirts like this for Fed and Rafa in the past the last three years have been very disappointed and most of them have returned them. It’s just ridiculous.

the biggest issue for me is the quality.. these most recent accomplishments from rafa and fed are incredible. i would rather nike matched theses hallmarks with specialty releases of shoes, jackets, or hats.. not pure cotton t-shirts. nike produced those fed hats to match the shirt.. only problem was they were awful.

100% cotton! That means you cannot really wear it for doing anything athletic! Terrible! Where is the the dri fit? I do not like to have it shrink after washing it 10X and sweat in it soak in 90+ degree sunny weather! Nike should of made it with dri-fit and charge the $65.00!

Exactly what I said - probably they thought of it only for casual wear, not tennis... that's weird..

The problem is not that it is cotton.

The problem is that it is paper-thin, cardboard-like, cheap, low-quality cotton with a print that will go in no time.

:cool:

Ditto that! But I purchase it directly from Nike Store because I call them and the gal said they would take it back if I had concerns! Nike has alway done what they said so I purchased it there.

It's threads like this that have pushed Federer away from Nike.
You seriously think that Fed is reading these threads? Seriously!? Like Roger has nothing better to do with his time than check out what people think about Nike’s failures with commemorative t-shirts.

What did you think of your “20” shirt Roger?

it's not the threads on talk tennis..it's these "threads" nike has been producing that shows a lack of respect for both rafa and fed.. we all know how great the old fed hat was... now fed and nadal have the same exact hat with different logos.. and it is not nearly as nice as tho old legacy hats. rafa and fed now have the exact same jackets,, just different logos. these celebration tees are garbage in their quality..and design. a guy wins 20 slams or 11 french opens and they put out a t-shirt.

Just gotten mine and you are right on with the "paper thin" and translucent like you can see ones nipples very clearly! Nike made it Summer weigh and then some to close to no weight. I think the wrapper and the "11" t-shirt weigh about the same! This is beyond cheap looking to junky looking. I think it fit in for beach wear and dry temperatures in the 100+ F but not for humid climates like Miami were you will be sweating a lot!

Nike should of made the "11" Fall weight and higher grade dri-fit and price it accordingly at $65-$75! It is already $35 and feel like I got robbed!

If fed gets to 21 they should make a limited edition $50 Federer at a blackjack table in the bellagio holding up 21 Ace of Spades King of Spades Epic wicking Dri-Fit Blue shirt!
