My guess is if i hasn't yet it might not. To the general public at least. Unless this is the same stuff he will be wearing in Roland Garros and they release it then.

Uniqlo is dropping the ball HARD with its tennis clothing. All they do is super limited releases around Grand Slams IF they do any releases at all.

They really should at least have a "core" line of tennis clothes in basic colors offered year-round

They do have a basic athletic line in which you can still use for tennis since they are mostly polyester.

Right. But they leave off the red logos everyone wants which is presumably "special" for the Kei, Djoko, Fed stuff they were offering.

So tennis line with basics... using the logo everyone sees on TV.

Right, but some of them have the UQ silver squares logo on the bottom hem. If you want the UQ red logos, I would suggest go to a imprint shop and ask them to add the logos on. I’m sure it doesn’t cost much either since they are pretty small and simple.

It seems to be a new model, not just a different colour of AO19 shirt. There's a chance they'll release it at RG like they did in 2015 and last year I think.

Since they signed Federer to a $300 million dollar contract, it seems like Uniqlo would make the tennis clothes available online at stores like TW

Uniqlo is not interested in selling tennis apparels. they are more interested in selling T-shirts.
why Uniqlo signed Federer for $300 mils? the owner just likes tennis and cool to have him as a brand ambassador. Just showing off his money.
I see several diehard fed fans who never bought anything from Uniqlo and buying many casual apparels after fed signed with uniqlo. That's their main focus instead of tennis apparel business.
I should not say "Never" but Uniqlo will not allow to sell their tennis apparels to other companies. they will only sell through their online and physical stores so people visit their website and stores and buy extra items which are non-tennis items.

What’s up with these newbies saying UQ should do this or do that. Are you part of their marketing team? No, and I’ll say the same for me, but I actually read and think. Like Kimguroo said, UQ signed Federer as an ambassador of the brand itself. UQ and Fed is looking at the bigger picture outside of tennis. Especially after Fed retires, he can promote the lifestyle apparels more.
