Is this the new norm with mismatched companies? Looked like they were the Nikes from Wimbledon.

It's the norm in other sports. Basketball players do it all the time. NBA uniforms are Nike as of the 2017-18 season but players have their own respective clothing/shoe agreements. I see no reason for tennis players to continue to be matchy-matchy as they say. The only thing that sort of bothers me is when a player wears a brand of clothing that makes a perfectly good tennis shoe but chooses a different brand shoe.

A pretty average look really.

I like it. Very simple but he looks very Samurai in it which suits his game. Some of his Nike kits are great but a lot of them are unwearable like the Zebra kit etc. I like the fact there's no RF logo as well. Makes it much more wearable for the average consumer. Interesting to note though is how he's going to coordinate with the shoe colors Nike puts out. Is Uniqlo going to have to cautiously be aware of that?

Without the square branding, the shirt looks like the ones they sold 2 seasons ago at under 30.00 usd. Shirt wicks well, and has held up to 20 + washing for me.

I think its nice and clean. Only thing I dislike is the color is very similar to Wimbledon. I hope they got another design for US Open, which is very likely. I think Uniqlo relationship is still young so give it some time before we see some really nice ones.

The used material look like polyester, i have two Uniqlo polo they are 100 % polyester. Less confortable and breathable in comparaison with Nike Dry fit, it look like Federer does not sweat.

You can tell the composition of the yarn just by looking at a picture?

Also, Nike has approximately 1 billion different varieties of Dry-fit, so which one is it that you mean?

Just a few days ago I posted on the forum how Federer looked so magnificent in darker kits. Uniqlo had to prove me wrong. Didn't do it for me, he looked very ordinary - something I never thought I'd say. Plus as mentioned above, his Cinci kits have been pretty top notch. Uniqlo's should have at least been on par. And the shoes with this outfit? Ugh.

I don't know. The kits look cheap material-wise. My wife looked at Federer and asked me: "Did he get that kit from a Chinese fake market?"

I agree. Part of Federer's identity/brand has always been a touch of class. Uniqlo may be implementing a sneaky bate and switch; abandoning the effortless class with a total rebranding of Federer. A kind of Adrian Mannarino signature move where market positioning is nothing and beige/bland/conventional is everything. Perhaps they think that the unsophisticated will identify.
Look I get it, tennis is not a fashion show (my wife's words), and the most important thing are the results, but it has been a fun ride following the Nike Aestheticians in their quest to keep Federer looking half decent. Perhaps he will sign a shoe deal with Nfinity or Zhuanglin and complete the transformation.

Yes i have a bionic eye and i spoke about the dry fit shirt manufactured with Yeti hairs. Seriously i have often worn Nadal shirts, very confortable and breathable (perfect for him because he sweats a lot..like me). I have nothing against Uniqlo, i have the 2013 Djokovic outfit, very nice and light. For Federer the outfit is not bad but i think Nike was better.

You seems a little paranoid "fan boys Nike " several accounts lol...i used many brands, i don't care, i was just surprised to see Federer with little sweat but perhaps he use a different material made especially for him, different than the usual Polyester used by Uniqlo, i was just curious.

So, you don't know the composition of the shirt.

Thanks.

sorry but i like the outfit. red trim looks good and the dark colors are back! shoes don’t match maybe shoe deal will get hammered out soon?

I was surprised to see Federer play with the same colourway from Wimbledon, so, either Uniqlo don't have their apparel designs for Federer well in advance, or Nike is not cooperating the way they should to provide a matching pair of shoes.

I really doubt that Federer would agree to just wear what everyone else sponsored by Nike wears as shoes.

It should be the other way round.

It seems Federer is wearing his Wimbledon top today with darker shorts from yesterday? Can anyone confirm?

I like that at least they have shortened the bandana length for him. That length suits him better.

I think the one he had on today had a navy blue accent on the buttons instead of the red from Wimbledon. Not a huge change but at least it matched the shorts.

I hope his US Open outfit has a bit of colour in it.... and I don't mean the logo.

It would be really unresponsible of Uniqlo if we did not see a new fresh design. I'm sure they pre-designed several outfits already, if not then that'd be weird.

Hard to say. If anything I'd be more likely to believe he will wear this same design until the Australian Open next year, just in different colourways.
