Going to a Uniqlo shop in the states this summer. Has anybody ever been? Do they have actual roger gear or no?
I have been to multiple Uniqlo shops in the past few months. Wife likes it a lot and I own a few jackets and shirts as well. They are very nicely priced. I have been to atleast half a dozen ones in NY (34th st and 5th Ave ones were the best IMO), and have also been to one in Chicago on Michigan Ave, since I had a work conference nearby. I have never ever seen any Federer or Nishikori stuff. The store managers do not know when they will be stocking any of Fed gear and when they do, it sells quickly because it is reasonably priced. Best bet is to order online and not wait. It will sell out and there won't be anything left to mark down. Just my two cents.

Really? :-D

Uniqlo is a funny bunch. Spending millions on Fedr that they could've easily recouped, yet they say nah. I mean, if they just make all of their t-shirts that Fedr wears to practice available and shipped everywhere, that's $100K's if not $millions right there over the course of a year, even if only priced at $10-$20 each.
Yeah, I don't get it. What was their business plan? No way they have gained profits or visibility through this. I have yet to buy a Uniqlo item, however I have tons of Federer Nike items.

Sorry, but availability is huge when trying to grow a brand. Nike does not have tons of stores with Fed and Rafa gear, but their site always did. Uniqlo has literally ended my Fed buying. But hey, saved me hundreds every year. :p

Oh, he's Fedr, so visibility is definitely there. There were endless comments about his RG19/Halle19 outfit on social media ;). Visibility surely is not maxed out, but Fedr turns heads. The profit part is the head-scratcher :unsure:.

As for you saving money yearly? It's only been a year....:happydevil:

Well, unless they make his items available, it's pretty easy to save money now. I mean, no hats, no shoes, UPS outfits (sold out anyways), and no special items. Heck, I can't even get a headband.

I deserve to be compensated. Uniqlo owes us fans a slam. I will take Wimbledon 19.

Qualies for Wimbledon are held a few miles away from All England Club courts at Sports Grounds in Roehampton (I'm a Londoner). They have always been faster than main courts and lack the charm and regal atmosphere you associate with Wimbledon. Play very different, not as well kept and feels like a different tournament altogether. Players don't speak very highly either. Surprised Cahill and other famous commentators haven't mentioned all that.

Not sure the Fed brand is responsible but they are making record profits. International sales rose 27% in 2018.

You definitely deserve to be compensated! Uniqlo done did wrong. WB19 is not enough. You deserve WB19 & USO19. :D

I am eagerly awaiting Feds press conference to hear what he has to say about what Rafa and Djokovic said
"Well, you know, Wimbledon make their own decisions on these things and we just have to go along with it, on the one hand they could go with the normal rankings, on the other hand, you know, they could have their own system like they do. Look, I'm just happy to be here and I'll play whoever I have to play and see how it goes, you know?"

Fedr, is that you??! :p

He really would say something like that. Just like him at Halle. Fedr: I'm here. You know where to find me.

"He has clay season with 3 masters, tell him to shove it and get ready for grass season."

Congratulations to the Grass GOAT on completing a set of 10 wins at Halle, a truly remarkable achievement if you consider that he won his first Halle title back in 2003 and his latest in 2019. That is 16 years between the first and last, and I think that is a record now. The longevity GOAT keeps on going, and do to it after a very good clay season speaks volume of the man, at nearly 38 years of age.

102 titles....he has a very good chance to take even further steps towards 109 this season also, and could complete yet another La Decima in Basel in the process, and be the first player to win 10 titles on two tournaments on two different surfaces.
I’ve never met a more decent Djoker fan like yourself online or in real person! (y)
