    Have to ask the question now - Will TW try and carry Uniqlo since Federer is now sponsored by them?

    No. Uniqlo only sells their items to their stores.
    I don’t think TW will carry uniqlo items.

    I had the same question. Uniqlo would be foolish not to want their stuff on TW. I'm not optimistic, though, considering it never happened in 5 years with djokovic.

    Interesting. Neither does the "other" online competitor, from a quick glance. Looks like UNIQLO does not sell through others. Can't find them on the great river either.

    their prices are so reasonable direct anyways. no reason to sell to retailers at markup etc.

    Probably uniqlo will see their items through their website.
    I will not surprised to see $80 shirts and $70 shorts.
    Question is how many Uniqlo will make.....
    Marketing wise. Make limited products for one or two productions so more people tries to buy his stuffs then increase production massively.

    I thought about this earlier today. Using TW and TWE would really help improve access and distribution for Uniqlo. BUT,I. Assuming Uniqlo wants to drive Fed purchasers to other items on their site, so it probably wouldn’t make sense to outsource sales.

    It is probably in their best interest to only sell direct bc people checking out the Federer line in the stores may end up buying other clothing as well.

    4.0 players who follow Rogir will need these kits very soon. If Tennis Warehouse does not carry them there will be long periods of severe devastation.
