Federer's US Open Outfit

Djoker will have something about this. Fed will not win US Open if he has to face the Djoker.
Fed couldn't have played worse in the Cincy final...Marcus Willis would have beaten him that day. Don't get too cocky because of one win. Fed is going to be extra motivated this USO so don't count him out.

Yes they previously didn’t maximize on Novak they do a bit better with Kei for obvious reasons. But this is the best tennis player of all time they will market him. Likely not to Nike’s level cause they don’t have Nikes platform. So much of the marketing with Fed was crossover branding opportunities and his kits being a big deal simply cause Nike had made them. Getting picked up on blogs for tennis AND Nike.

Uniqlo won’t have that cache that Nike has to drive numbers just off brand name. They’ll have to release good products. To that end they do have good products. I own 10 or so of there dri fit like shirts most are older than a year and are holding up very well I find they are similar in size to Nikes tops and have moisture wicking properties as good as what I have had with UA, Nike, etc. They are maybe a touch tighter in the chest. And gasp ... they’re XL.

Federer is 2-7 against the Djoker in the last 9 GS events (Fed prevailed in 2011 FO SF and 2012 Wimbledon SF). I should get cocky because Djoker has Fed number in GS events. Fed might outlast Nadal in GS events but definitely not Djoker.

Fed has 20 slams and is the undisputed GOAT. Doubt the guy at your own peril.

Fed is NOT GOAT. Yes he has 20 GS BUT he has losing records against both Nadal and Djoker. Fed is 15-23 against Nadal, 3-9 in GS events. Fed is 22-24 against Djoker, 6-9 in GS events.

As the famous Bill Parcells once said "“you are what your record says you are”. Based on H2H record between Fed/Nadal or Fed/Djoker, I would not say Fed is GOAT

Tennis is about winning titles not individual head to heads, otherwise Dominick Hrbaty would be GOAT.

Secondly Nadal wasn't good enough to get to Fed in the draws on indoor and fast court for years while Fed WAS good enough to reach Nadal on Nadal's best surface which helped Rafa's h2h greatly and the reason for the skew.

As for Novak theres no way he's getting to 20 so you can kiss your dreams of him becoming GOAT goodbye.

Yes, we should all be able to beat anyone head to head regardless of where we are in our careers and age difference.

I never say Novak is GOAT and neither is Nadal. You said that Fed is GOAT, I did not. Since you declare Fed is GOAT, he should have at least winning record against his rival, Djoker or Nadal and Fed fails in that department. Yes Fed has the most GS titles but I wouldn't call him GOAT. Almost half of Fed GS titles come from relatively unknown guys. Two of djoker's GS titles came from Tsongas and Andersen while the other twelve came at the expense of Fed, Nadal and Murray. Now that's domination.

Whoever has the most Slams is the GOAT. End. of. discussion.

I explained why Fed doesn't have a winning record against Nadal you just can't understand it for whatever reason.

Anyway Fed is considered GOAT not just by lots of people on the boards but by more ATGs as well so deal with it.

"'Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.” Daniel Patrick Moynihan (1927-2003).

Fed is considered GOAT, that's just an opinion. He is not better than Rod Laver (aka the rocket) who won the true GS twice, once as an amateur in 1962 and another one as a pro in 1969. Even Djoker hold 4 consecutive GS 2015 Wimbledon, 2015 US Open, 2016 AO and 2016 French Open. Not even Fed can even claim that. If someone is claimed to be GOAT, you need to be able to dominate your rivalries and pummel them into submission. Fed failed to do that.

And no, Djoker is not GOAT either but he can say that he has better H2H record against Federer overall and especially in GS events.

The factual answer is Mury GOAT

But in all seriousness Laver is GOAT by my metrics because of how complete he was, he won the Calendar Pro Slam in 1967 too, as well 200 total titles which puts even Connors to shame.

I don't have a pic but this kit looked classy and solid yesterday with Nike making a color matched pair of vapors!!

I'm wondering if he will have a different night kit.

Will nike release the burgundy vapors? I wonder if it means they are any closer to getting a shoe deal done.
