I will need bleach for my eyes if I see Federer in a Uniqlo shirt

Uniqlo doesn't have much options for tennis clothing AFAIK. The last time I went to the their flagship store in Tokyo, their tennis section was so small at the end section between two isles.

Their reported sponsorship of Fed probably more for promoting their brand in general rather than for tennis clothing line.

Yeah but if Fed had been wearing those simple, but boring Uniqlo outfits all these years and then went to Nike to wear

this


or this


we'd say it was one of the biggest atrocities of all time. Fed's looked like a clown in a lot of the Nike gear from recent years.
You should’ve seen what he would’ve worn had he not skipped the clay.

Classic red polo, white shorts for the clay.

Classic blue polo for the French Open.

Looked better than Rafa’s kit and his looked fantastic too.

I thought Rafa looked terrible, guess we have different tastes. The whole blue shoe/blue sock thing they do just looks weird to me.

I’d have preferred Rafa in white shorts with the same shirt, and white socks, so I agree on that front.

Also I edited my last post with links...might want to check that out.

At least I hope i will not be seeing Roger in Nike Pink attire (Yuck!!!) at AO like the rest of the field.

I get your point, and the USO17 outfit was pretty bad, especially the red.. but the black, a bit better.

I really like Fed's AO17 outfit tho,.. maybe it's bc #18, maybe it's bc I'm a comic book fan, maybe bc I'm a Jim Lee fan (amazing line work, see pic), or maybe all of the above. :)

I actually love Fed's AO kit, but i'm 98% sure it's just from nostalgia of the tournament. I'm fairly certain I was shaking my head when I first saw Fed walk out looking like a zebra with radioactive feet.

I agree with your first post but I also liked his AO/IW-Miami kits partly because they're now "iconic" from winning those tournaments but then again I still would have thought his USO kits would have been ugly even if he had won the title.

Uniqlo just spent 300 million on a guy who is about to retire?

Where will Fed be wearing these Uniqlo outfits for the next ten years? In the bleachers at Leo’s junior soccer tournaments?
It's about promoting their brand outside Asia. Also have read that Uniglo is looking forward to Fed at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. And when Fed retires in a couple years, his face will be all over every newspaper and website in the world and guess what? He'll be wearing Uniglo. It's all about advancing their brand in the western world. 99% of Americans have never even heard of Uniglo. I never had till Noval signed with them.

Uniqlo are the worst clothes brand I think. I like Nike, Sergio Tacchini, Lacoste, Lotto, Fred Perry, Adidas, and even Fila, anyday, before Uniqlo. Bland is the word that comes to mind with Uniqlo.

My guess is that this is not really happening. I just haven't woken up yet, or I am hallucinating.

Just like Novak's Tennis the last couple of years-he has been the perfect uninspired ambassador for them.

It's a matter of personal preference, of course, but with what Nike's been coming out for tennis players recently, Uniqlo's simplicity doesn't seem that bad to me.

not sure why ppl don't like Uniqlo..I think it's made better and looks more clean/classy..Nike is overexposed and overpriced imo...I just hope Uniqlo doesn't double it's prices now that Federer is wearing them...

They signed him for 10 years!
How many of those will see Rog as a pro, 1-3 tops?
He doesn’t strike me as the type to be constantly messing with the other tours that tennis has to offer once he calls it a day.
Congrats to him though, he’s still workin’ it.

This is just plain funny. UniQlo knew his feet would be photographed because
of the shoes and the swoosh so they insisted upon placing their logo right near
it on the socks....AND....it's probably not a coincidence that the swoosh is of
a light color that doesn't stand out much.

Careers are made and broken over nonsense like this.

They always had their logo at this place on their tennis socks, sorry.
