Roger Federer officially left Nike for a lavish deal with Uniqlo earlier in July, and the 20-time Grand Slam winner has already been seen donning Uniqlo‘s game gear at the ongoing 2018 Wimbledon Championships.
I am excited to announce my new partnership with @uniqlo to commence the next chapter in my career. Nike has been a fantastic partner over the last 20 years which I will always cherish. I look forward to the new adventures coming ahead.
Consisting of a five-piece range, featuring a shirt, shorts, headband, wristband, and socks, the game wear set made of the brand’s Dry EX material was designed at the Uniqlo Paris R&D Center, led by artistic director Christophe Lemaire. Instead of the classic polo shirt or crewneck style collar, Uniqlo reflected Roger Federer’s preference for a short stand-up collar to emphasize a more sophisticated look, while the design of the shirt and shorts is accented by Uniqlo’s signature burgundy color line incorporated at the edge of the sleeves and the front panel of the shirt, and down the sides of the shorts.

While Roger Federer suffered an early exit from Wimbledon 2018 after a defeat from Kevin Anderson, Uniqlo has announced that a pre-order for the game wear set will be accepted at Uniqlo Japan’s online store starting later this month, with delivery scheduled in late September to early October.
The five-piece set will retail for approximately $120 USD and available in sizes small, up to double XL.
