Worst and Best outfits of each of the Big 3.

Let me start us off.
Federer's Worst has to be the UPS Fedex:

As much as I love Uni Qlo, it just doesn't fit with RF. Nike did indeed save the best for last:

Djokovic's best is just the simple one:

He honestly hasn't had to many bad ones, but this has to take my cake:

Nadal's best:

Nadal has had so many bad ones that its hard to pick a worst, but this one takes the cake:

Sorry about the difference in picture sizes, its hard to find pictures of the same size.

I do agree with the Djokovic and Nadal worst outfits. I forgot about those. Also maybe the Federer 2007 Australian open outfit can be the worst. I still think that Nadal's 2018 Aussie open was even worse than the monstrosity of the Wimbledon outfit. I also really like both of the Federer outfits, but I think they are middle of the road for him. The Djokovic best outfit was one that I was considering, but I still think the 2015 US Open outfit was better. I think that the Djokovic blue outfit is worse than my bad pick, but not by much.

That Djokovic outfit is beautiful!

You don’t like Federer’s WTF ‘12 outfit?
Nah, the 2005 USO one is awful. Problems start with shoes that don't match the outfit at all, shirt-shorts color combo sucks (grey/yellow/white? come on), but the fit is what takes the cake. Nike often made them wear shirts that looked too short in that time (Nadal was even worse) and this one was no exception. Sleeves were massive which also doesn't work with the shirt being so short. The worst thing however was the fact that it made Roger look fat.


Seriously, he looks like he was hanging with Nalbandian a bit too much here.

The shoes are very funny with the '05 USO outfit, but I have to say that the rest of the outfit doesn't look to bad.

Well, back then they were still in the process of adapting to the times. Clothing from the 90’s were baggy and it continued to the early to mid ‘00. The color combo isn’t too bad. The shorts matches with the Swoosh on the shirt, where the yellow hints matches the bandana. I rather have white shorts over yellow any day. I do agree with the shoes though.

It's more of a muted steel blue than grey. Those pictures don't really do the color justice.



The yellow accents are really what make this amazing for me. The muted blue-grey with bright yellow accents is just an awesome color combo IMO. I guess it's just a matter of personal taste

Federer's best:
The all-black combos are always perfect for Fed, but these 2 stand out in particular:

The original black-out kit, with tuxedo shorts.

Red accents in 2009 added a new dimension to it, as well as the absolutely epic black and red Nike Vapor 6's with carbon fiber pattern between the soles. Simply sick.

Worst:

The height of the Nike pink craze, AO18. It's like they deliberately tried to make their tennis gear god-awful for publicity that year. Perhaps this is why he left for Uniqlo.

Nadal's best:
USO10, and generally everything from around that period


I love how we near-unanimously consider this one his best outfit. It's just perfect. Nadal and Nike, peak for peak.
The design reminiscent of superhero armor, as well as perfect coordination with black and volt (even the Nike logos are volt instead of the usual white, subtle detail that sets this kit apart).
The same design in other colorways were awesome too:

Scarlet and white. Like a Spanish matador

Yellow and black, the reversed day session kit for USO10 and the fall season.

Worst:
They're outdoing themselves every year at the HC Slams. First this absolute disappointment at AO17

Then the sleeveless abominations which almost did a disservice to his old pirate days


At least the AO19 outfit was a nice color

They're not even creative at this point.
But the most recent one might be the coup de grace
